The Blog Days of Summer {4TH OF JULY FUN}!

Here is how we spent our 4th this year!
It was lovely and lazy…my kind of holiday!
And of course I have to talk about the food! We had Summer Shirley’s*, Macho Salad*, Potatoes, Steaks and Herb Crusted Chicken*! Dessert was a mix of berries with angel food cake & whipped cream!

*For my SUMMER SHIRLEY TEMPLE DRINK I just added a splash of grenadine to ginger-ale, along with cherries, blueberries & star shaped ice cubes to make it festive!
*I’ll have to show you how I make my Herb Crusted Chicken sometime soon. As long as you have a BBQ it’s always in season!

*If you have never had this “Macho Salad” you must! I wish I could take credit for the recipe but it comes from the restaurant Bandera! A….MAZE….ING!

beautiful birthday girl {ELLA} & a few tutorials

This past weekend we got to celebrate one of my favorite things:
our little friend Ella’s 1st Birthday
I knew I wanted to make her a special party hat and banner but I was not sure where to start.  So I got out my scraps, used the invites & cupcake toppers for inspiration and got to work.  Here’s how it turned out! Cute! Right? Well it helps when the little model is gorgeous! Check out my Crepe Paper Flowers & Party Hat TUTORIALS below.  Hope it inspires you to try!
