Here is our little one's First Birthday Garden party we threw for her a couple of weeks ago. I was really nervous that all the decor I had collected over a the weeks leading up to it was not going to go well together, but everything seemed to fit like little puzzle pieces! My daughters birthday is at the end of April, so having a garden themed birthday party seemed very appropriate. Can you say Easter clearance?! It was such a beautiful day, and we spent it with a bunch of good friends, and lots of yummy treats!
We decided to do flowers for the favors, since it was a garden themed party. The majority of the decor was from Target, Michaels, and Hobby Lobby. The flowers and birdcages were reused from a friends wedding. I decided last minute to order the cake instead of make it myself, and boy am I glad I did! I totally didn't need an extra project on my hands!!!
Overall, we were so incredibly happy with the outcome of the party. It was the perfect day to celebrate our sweet girl's First Birthday!
I'd love to hear what Ya'll think about our little bunny's Garden Party! Comment below!

It has been a total hit with both my three and one year old, and its one that I know won't keep me up all night with mom guilt. Yes Mom guilt; It's a thing! And I know i'm not the only one who suffers from it.
As many of you may already know, I have some pretty picky eaters on my hands. If you didn't, the struggle is totally real and you can read some of my tips with dealing with it here.
This recipe is super easy and incredibly yummy.

Check out our Simple Coffee Bar I have been working on! Our house has been a work in progress the last year. We are coming up on one year of moving in and finally I am starting to love how it's turning out. We are really trying to downsize and live a simpler lifestyle, and coming from an entire life of borderline hoarding, it has been quite the challenge.
I have started putting together our simple coffee bar and as you can see, this is the first stage of it. I am still trying to figure out what to put on the top shelf and in the cabinet. Although, right now, it's bare because we have sneaky little fingers that like to rip things off shelves.
So this Ninja coffee bar machine has been amazing. I'm still trying to figure out the perfect recipe for my beloved White Chocolate Mocha addiction, but I get closer and closer every day! Stay tuned for more photos on our home transformation!

Here’s an easy dinner for ya’ll. Pasta always seems like my go-to meal as I’m sure that is the general consensus. As most of you may know, we struggle with a picky eater in our house. Any meal I make, I’m trying to find where I can add in some good veggies. Any type of pasta sauce is perfect for this! I typically add carrots, peppers, and mushrooms to my sauces after putting them through my food processor.
I recently was invited to attend an event hosted by Terra’s Kitchen in downtown Raleigh. I don’t get many nights out these days, so I took the opportunity and boy am I glad I did! It actually was the first time I have heard about Terra’s Kitchen, as it is a relatively new company. If you’re not familiar with Terra’s Kitchen, it is a meal-kit delivery service; but has a philosophy that really stood out to me against its competitors. (Blue Apron, Hello Fresh, Etc.) One of their main goals is focused on bringing families back to the table; by taking the stress and time spent in planning and prepping dinner, ultimately leaving more time for the family.
