Gigi's Frozen Birthday Party

Last week I was busy planning and decorating for my daughter's 4th birthday party, so I wanted to share it with you. Gigi wanted a Frozen party this year and I have to admit, I had a lot of fun with it! :)

Gigi loved helping me make the decorations, and I love how they turned out. I made the white paper chain backdrop and blue glittery birthday banner. I found snowflake felt stickers at the craft store and added glitter to them, since glitter always makes things cuter. :)

I also cut out circles from white paper, sewed them together and hung them from the ceiling. It looked like Elsa made it snow just for the party! :)

For the food -- we had sandwiches, chips, blue jello 'ice cubes,' snowflake sugar cookies, and "do you want to build a snowman" treats.

snowflake sugar cookies

The "build a snowman" treats, I got the idea here. The snowman parts are pretzel sticks, carrots, milk duds and powdered donut holes...

and melted snowman to drink!

I just love how the cake turned out! I didn't make it but I did make the candy ice crystals and added them to the top, along with Elsa and Anna.

Us with the birthday girl!

make a wish...

It was a fun party and Gigi loved it, she's still talking about it and she's already telling me what she wants for next year!

Keeping Warm

I was planning on staying home today since the forecast is a high of -1 and a low of -11 (and that doesn't factor in the wind chill). But then I remembered that I have my daughter's doctor appointment. Ughhh! So I guess I have to venture outside and try to keep warm. I decided to wear this top since it's warm, comfortable and cute.

Black Brights

Did you pick up anything from Anthropologie's sale yesterday? I have my eye on this, but haven't pulled the trigger yet. It looks like a cute top but I'm trying to be better and not just buy something because it's on sale. So anyway, I love wearing black and white with pops of color so here's what I wore to church on Sunday...

Comfort is Key

We've had an extremely cold winter here in Minnesota. So there have been lots of days when I don't want to venture outside and all I want to do is stay home and stay warm. Recently I've been loving Athleta since they have a lot of cute and comfy clothes. And when they had a additional % off sale items I had to pick up a few things, one of them was this top.

Here's one of my favorite tees, I just love the doxie print. :) I just need to add a comfy sweater to keep me warm...

Bumblebee

I love black & white with yellow. You might mistake me for a bumblebee, but I still like it. :) When getting ready for church yesterday, I couldn't decide on what boots to wear - booties or knee high boots. Decisions, decisions.

Sale Picks!

After a few weeks of no sales, we woke up to great sale at Anthropologie today! Here are my picks....

This top looks cute and I love all the colors it comes in, it would be hard to choose one! The detailing in the front is nice and the neckline looks flattering.

I own another version of this dress and I love it! The stripes in this dress are super flattering. Plus, it's a great layering piece to pair with cardigans and necklaces. FYI, size up one size.

If I didn't already own the Scalloped-Tied Booties, I would be picking these up for sure! I love the flower detailing on them! 

I might call around to find this, I just love the plum color. Did you pick up anything from the sale today??
