This year she asked for an India Theme 6 year old party....
So, after doing some research we found India colors typically are bright and gorgeous and our 2 fav colors - pink and orange. We hit up the $1 store and Target and found some amazing paper decorations for decor.
Now that it's over - along with the holidays....gasp! It's time for me to work with her on Thank you notes. It's such a rewarding though time consuming task. But honestly there is nothing that can replace getting something special in the mailbox for you or your little one.
Here are some amazing tips on writing thank you notes with your child. I love the idea of incorporating the art work that is in abundance around any house with children!!!

On top of this request, our neighborhood was having a 4th of July parade which included a pie contest.
(My Man's birthday is 7/9!)
So, I figured I'd make two pies and call it day.
I grew up with cherry pie. My Mom still makes her amazing cherry pie recipe and it's delicious - with fresh pie cherries and homemade crust.
This is NOT what I baked.
Instead I found an easy pie recipe via bhg.com and wa'la - my pie WON the contest and was devoured at Jake's surprise 40th party! The key ingredient was...can cherries! And to top it off I made this same easy, delicious pie recipe with other can fruit for Thanksgiving since my family wanted a berry pie in the fall.
So, here's to Pie; no matter if it's a lot or little effort, it is still delicious.

With school days quickly approaching, you must check out this creative and adorable wedding invitation by graceprintable on esty.com. For $25 you get a PDF of the invite, response cards, and return address labels. ADORABLE. All you have to do is buy the ink and the paper and wa'la! I'm thinking yellow college ruled please.

There's something about opening up an organizer, having a clip board, a new pad -and writing down what I need to do, or what I have done, or what's on my schedule, or [fill in the blank].
It's just gives me such a sense of accomplishment, even if I get nothing else done. Yes, I'm 100% serious about this.
I was recently browsing through the DIY section of Etsy - and came across this creative shop by Natasha Mileshina and fell in love with her printable baby planner! All you need is Adobe Reader and a new (heck or used) cute binder - and wa-la - for $18, your life is organized for you and your new family member!
At least it will be organized on paper - and adorable paper I might add.
Find this organizer and more at her etsy store and learn more about the designer on her personal website.

This means pie on Saturday AND Sunday! WAHHHOOOO!
I love this idea. Instead of the wedding cake slice that never really hits the spot - I will be sampling some delicious pie. Maybe even 2 slices. In honor of each of them, of course.
I love them and am excited about the fall wedding- but between you and me, I'm now even more excited :) Congrats Jesse & Heather!
