Lilly Pulitzer Monogram Shower

Lilly Pulitzer Monogram Shower

Hey y’all!  We have survived Hurricane Matthew! I have electricity again! And I’m back to share a little Monogram Shower my sister and I hosted last month.  I can’t tell you how happy I when our electricity turned back on last night after over two days without it.  I am so thankful for all of the first responders, linemen and volunteers who help to keep everyone safe during storms like Hurricane Matthew. My little “Sissy” is getting married soon! My…

Have I mentioned to you guys before that my oldest and youngest daughters’ birthdays are only one day apart?  So I’m trying to plan a First Birthday party for the baby and another party for my oldest and trying to make sure neither is overshadowed by the other.  And it tax season… So I’m not above taking a short cut or two…that’s where this super easy banner comes in! I was perusing the aisles of Target when I noticed this blank banner…

Sweet girl has a first birthday coming up!  Can you believe it?  I don’t even know how that happened.  We have 1 year pictures coming up and I wanted a cute headband/crown combo for her to wear so I decided to make one.   Here’s what you’ll need…  The crown – I found this one on clearance after Christmas at Target.  It was an ornament that I bought on a whim but knew I could use it for something with three little…

Avery’s 5th Birthday

Avery’s 5th Birthday

Somehow, my baby turned 5 last month.  I’m trying to get the old blog caught up on all things happening on the Bay Bush.  Here are all the details from my Miss Averycakes 5th Birthday!     She wanted a frozen party (only after changing her mind 1,000 times with themes ranging from Ben 10 to Paw Patrol to Princesses).    The cake was so cute and rather tasty! We decided to have her Party at local party place because I…

Sister’s Barn Yard Baby Shower

Sister’s Barn Yard Baby Shower

I can’t believe I never shared pictures from the Barn Yard Baby Shower we threw for my sister way back in February!  The nursery has a farm theme so we decided we would carry that through to the shower. We had one little big problem though.  The stage in the Fellowship Hall at my church was still up from the Christmas Play and taking it down was not an option.  Taking that bad boy down and putting it back up…

Birthdays (Continued)

Birthdays (Continued)

 For Miss AveryCakes actual birthday we woke up early and celebrated with Birthday Pancakes.  McKenna told me, “You need to put this recipe on your blog, Mom!”  Bless her heart.  Pretty sure it was the just-add-water pancake mix, confetti sprinkles and a candle.  My secret is out! Instead of the normal snack they have at preschool that day, I brought cupcakes, Doritos and Juice boxes. #easiestpartyever   We brought along Annya for an extra set of hands.  After the…

McKenna’s 6th Birthday

McKenna’s 6th Birthday

My sweet first-born turned six at the end of April.  I know I sound like a broken record but… How can she possibly be six?  Where did the time go? She loves to color, draw and create little masterpieces to give away.  So we thought an art party was in order to celebrate her big day!  Luckily there was an opening at our local pottery painting studio (because I tend to wait until the last minute to get my act…

2012 {in review}

2012 {in review}

I intended to post a lot more in 2012.  I had good intentions.  But time was short and my to-do list was long. I decided to give you a quick and dirty recap of our year just like I did for 2011. I reduced my hours at work this past May. One would think I should have more time on my hands for blogging and such but as it turned out, I had less.  I tried to make sure I spent the majority of…

Most Beautiful Diaper Cake Ever

Most Beautiful Diaper Cake Ever

We had a little shower at work for a co-worker with a little bundle of joy on the way!  We knew we wanted to make a diaper cake to use as a centerpiece.  So, naturally, I scoured Pinterest for an easy Diaper Cake Tutorial. I was inspired by this beauty at Really Quite Lucky. So, I totally cannot take credit for the idea. I mean, it is genius. The receiving blankets covering the diapers look like a fondant cake.  Also, I had two…
