About Me

My photo
I'm a mid twenties girl. Who has the cutest two boys ever. I'm married to the best hubby ever (aka the Man). I'm also a teacher of sixth grade with a masters degree in Education. I'd rather be busy than bored. I love things bright and beautiful and my family means the world to me.

First Birthday Party!

It was a success! We had our closest family and friends join us in celebrating Ryker's first year.
Thanks to Pinterest the ideas were super easy to find and implement. I got the food tags from Etsy I can't find her name for the life of me but they were perfect.

 These mini-cherry pies were so easy and people loved them!
 I was so worried about how I could get ice cream included without the actual thing. Lo and behold Target had these, mini- gummy ice cream cones. 
 I've been wanting to try making a sucker tree for a while, this was my excuse!
 Our local grocery store, Hy-Vee, made this. So cute and one less thing for me to worry about. 
 More of the spread. 
 Lots of present opening helpers!

 Someone LOVED his cake!

 I have to say, he didn't get too messy and was in and out of the bath in under five minutes. 
This is after everyone left. I can't get enough of these two. We opened all the toys and Tucker kept "showing" Ryker how they worked. 

Lastly, the thank you cards I snagged from Shutterfly! I used some Pampers codes and ordered some extras since they're nice to have around. Love that little smile and how the circles tie somewhat into our theme but are generic enough to work for everything.

What day is it?

It's April! It's the 2nd which means the month of March is over! How crazy is that? What happened to February? I know it's the shortest month, but really? Anyone else feel the same? Here comes the rush of events!
Going list style, shocking right?!?!
  • We've got our state testing coming up, the dates were set but we've had snow days so now it's all up in the air.
  • End of the quarter was Friday, which means as of today there are only nine weeks left of the year! Whoa!
  • Ryker's first birthday is under two weeks away.
I'm how old??!?!
  • The Man is crazy busy, between school and work he's got a lot going on.
  • Easter, bringing all its excitement, flew by in a whirlwind!
  • I've been trying to tackle my spring cleaning list, it's a little over whelming.
So, you know what? Time to embrace it and just move faster! Right?
