DIY: Deco Mesh Halloween Wreath

I was very anxious to make my first wreath for our new house. I wanted it to be great.  I have made a couple deco mesh wreaths in the past, but nothing that I was super excited about. I am always nervous about putting something like this together because I feel like the things I pick out for the wreath just don't match. When I went to the store I was very overwhelmed because there is SO much stuff. You can easily spend alot of $$ make a wreath. You've got to be careful of that.

I got most of my supplies from Hobby Lobby. Unfortunately they were not having a sale on any of the Halloween items. I just got a couple of things that were Halloween related. I was pretty bummed that none of the Halloween stuff was not on sale. I did get the ribbons  (50% off) & work wreath (got it on the Christmas aisle 40% off) on sale.

I happened to be in Walmart getting some things for my mom. I just browsed in the Halloween section and found the "Boo" piece for $1.97. Thought it woul…

Stone's Orange and Gray Vintage Bicycle Nursery

When we found out we were going to have our 2nd child I knew I wanted to go with a gender neutral room color scheme like big brother. I didn't want to go with the same color of yellow and gray (even though those are my FAVORITE colors). I wanted something that was just for baby #2. So I decided I will go with Gray and Orange instead. Then when we found out Baby #2 was going to be a boy I decided to go ahead an incorporate my husband's passion of cycling into the room and do a vintage bicycle themed room.

We were building our home for most of my pregnancy. We finally did move in when I was 6 months pregnant.  I shared my vision of the orange and gray vintage bicycle theme with my husband. I told him some things I thought would be cool to put in there. Because we were both working full time, moving and chasing a 2 year old toddler. And oh being full blown pregnant in the blazing summer heat. We really didn't get to work on the nursery like we did with our oldest son. We had…

Let's Break the Ice: Summer Toddler Activity

It has been unbearably hot in Texas this summer. It's been in the triple digits and the high 90's most of August and now September. I  really don't like having Jett being cooped up in the house. He just gets so bored inside the house. You can only color, paint & play with your toys so much.

I wanted to find a fun activity for my busy minded two year old that would keep us cool outside. I then found this on pinterest and saw another mama on FB doing this with her little one. It was just what we needed!

I grabbed the largest tupperware container I had. Took the legos bag & the cheap plastic magnets. I then had Jett throw into the container a variety of those toys. We then just filled it up with water. Then stuck in the freezer overnight.

The next day I had Jett bring is play tools out. .We went outside I took the block of ice out of the container and he started to chisel and bang away. It didn't take long for the ice to start to melt, which made it easier for Jet…
