DIY Party/Picture/Room Decoration Banner

At first I was going to order a banner off of Etsy, but then I thought about it the banners that I had see where about 30-40 well the ones that I liked anyways. They were great and I admire the people that make them so much creativity in one person is very dangerous (that’s what I like to say about myself) So I looked Mr.Know it all (Google) for “DIY party banners” as sure enough all this posts and pictures of very cute banners came up! I went crazy. Yall just don’t understand I will spend all day on google or my favorite place in the world Piterest looking up anything and everything under the sun. I just love making things. I don’t make them often but when I do I take great pride in it!

Oh and by the way his theme will be (drum roll)

“Little Man” which is basically mustaches and ties and his color scheme is mint blue and red

                            I was originally going to make the banners my self but then I went to target and found this…

Banners

 

They were $1.99 each I thought that was pretty good so I got 2 red and 2 blues I ended up going back and returning 1 of the blue ones because when I get in my zone I change my mind more than once.

Then I went to Hobby Lobby that’s like the best place in the world besides Michaels of course!

I got some blue (mint) and red scrapbook paper, K,J,N (that one was for Noah) wood letters, red and mint blue paint, stencils, xacto knife I found a pink one, canvas and mustache stickers.

 

yay

 

So I took the stencils and traced the following on the mint blue paper “Happy Birthday Kason” I cut those out and glued them on the banners. I tried using the knife yeah im not very good that that so I stuck with the scissors. I already had printed out the mustache and bowtie and I basically traced them as well and glued them to the banners.

And this is the finished look

tada

Then what I did with the canvas was this

I filled in the mustache with black paint

The letters were the easiest of course lol I just painted them

Letters

I will be putting the letters over Kasons bed and the banner and canvas will be put away.

I am still not done with the party decorations I will be posting as I go .Hopefully I can find the charger to my camera so I can take better pictures.

Hello there!!

So ive been gone for a couple of months and so much has happened. I am currently waiting for my computer to sync with my phone because there is so many pictures to share!(its done!) I am briefly going to summarize what has been going on.

Okay so Mr. Kason will be 1 this 29th. I can hardly believe that my little baby will be the BIG 1. He took his birthday pictures last month. You may be asking why? well the girl who takes all my pictures was already booked for the whole month of June. So I just went ahead an took them a month earlier! I will be posting some of his pictures once I get them.

Noah will be 6 in August. He gets out of school this Friday! He will also have like a little mini graduation this Thursday. He will be going to 1st grade! He is doing awesome. Him and Kason will be taking pictures together some time in August.

As you can tell I have 2 birthday, well actually 3 because Tee turns 22 on the 9th of this month! Not only that Fathers Day is coming up! So that means I can get CREATIVE. For Kasons pictures I made some of the props! We didn’t use 2 of them but I will be displaying them at his party! With that being said be prepared for som DIY posts! I enjoy watching DIY videos and reading about them as well so its only appropriate that I do some myself!

As far as me and Tee go we are good we hit some bumps not too long ago. But what couple doesn’t. Our relationship has always been a unique one (well I like to think so) I feel that we go trough the bad all at once to get to the good (eventually) We are a working process.

As far as my school goes I am still in school. I just finished 3 classes about a month ago. Can we say stressful! Um yes you can! I will be enrolling AGAIN this July. If all goes good I should graduate this October!! And that is my goal for this year I want to finish school and do what I love!

I have also started working out! I love it!!!!!! It takes so much stress off of me. I can just sweat it off basically. Im not going to the gym to loose weight I am just working on toning my body. My tummy area to be exact.

Anyways I will be posting some pictures of the props I made for Kasons pictures after I publish this post.

Bye.. well see you in a bit

Kason’s 6 month Update

18 pounds 

He rolls over to where he wants to be. I seriously don’t know how he doesn’t her dizzy from all those turns 

He sits and hold his balance 

Splashes like crazy when he is taking his bath

Loves his baby food

Sips out of a straw. I didnt know this until his grandma told me he had some of her juice.

He sleeps hugging his cover

We have put him in a walker and he actually walks in it but we watch him very carefully.

When he doesn’t know somebody he will hide his face it’s the cutest thing

If he is trying to get you attention he will stare at you until you feel uncomfortable lol but he will greet you with a smile 

Refuses to sleep on his back now which freaks me out

Loves to play with his brother

Says tatata which makes his dad think he will say dad first. Actually he says he already said it 

Total mammas boy!!!

When he gets excited he scrunches up his nose and does this blowing out noise with his nose 

Loves to watch mommy dance around and sing 

He sings along. His singing is this “aaahhhhhhhhhhhhh”

Sock in my mouth

6 Month Breastfeeding Update

So can you believe it has been 6 months? I can’t! 

Let me just say that it has been such a wonderful experience. Its been kind of hard but I love it.

Anyways let’s get to it. 

Kason eats every two-three hours I know maybe he should be eating every four hours or more but this works for us. I have been giving him solids now so sometimes he can go a little longer. My breast no longer get engorge like they use to (thank God) they look like they use to lol. 

When I’m at work I pump every 2-3 hours. I pump about 8 oz both combine. I was given a electric breast pump so I get most of my milk out. Before I was using a manual pump so it was a bit hard to get it out. My left breast gives me less milk when pumping but when Kason is latched on he gets out a lot more. My right one has always been my girl lol to her it does not matter if it’s the pump or Kason she does not discriminate! I have all my stash at my mothers house because she has a refrigerator outside (I forgot what it’s called) 

I’ve been able to eat spicy stuff without bothering Kason. I don’t eat it all the time. I try to stay away from sweets but snickers always call my name along with sodas. I however completely stay away from sodas! I stick to water if I want something sweet to drink I drink orange juice. I have recently started drinking V8 and I like it. I eat veggies a lot for some reason I don’t really eat fruit. I take vitamins as well.

I use to have this huge problem with finding the perfect nursing pads (who would have thought that would be one of my problems right) but I’ve narrowed them down to two, my ultimate favorite one is Well Beginnings Nursing Pads and my second favorite ones are from Lasinoh. I’ve tried Johnson’s, target brand, and this other one I forget the  name but they were not for me. The reason why I love those is because both of them stay in place they are not constantly moving around. The reason being that they have not just one sticky part but two so it really keeps them in place. I wear my regular bras the nurses bras to me were not worth it. 

initially my goal was just to breastfeeding for 6months but that has changed. I will continue to breastfeed him until he can drink whole milk. Now I know some people think it’s best to keep Breastfeeding even after they start to drink whole milk but that’s where I think I will stop unless something changes my kind that’s where I stand. 

I’ve gotten sick a couple of times but I’ve continues to breastfeed him he has gotten sick as well but not for long.

I was told by a couple of people that I would not be able to breastfeed him for long that I was just going to have to give it up. I believe it for a whole but thanks to a couple of people I kept going. It’s hard and painful at first but it gets better.

I think that’s all for this post  said it my last post wether you’re Breastfeeding or not just know that you are doing what you think is best. Don’t let other people tell you otherwise.

Old Navy Trip

Its been a very and i mean VERY long time since i have been able to shop for my kids. I have been waiting for this for the longest and i feel both accomplished and i kind of regret it lol. Why? you may ask well lets just say i got paid yesterday and now ask me to borrow $20 dollars. Did you ask already? Okay well “I dont have anything but my insurance payment so im sorry i cant let you borrow $20, maybe in two weeks i will.”

So i am broke as a joke!

But i just had to buy and buy..and because of one of my purchases i have become obsessed with OWLS!

Therefor i will be doing some JO-ANN shopping for some DIY projects! (So maybe ask me for those $20 in about 3 weeks lol)

Look at those owls aren't they cute. Kason's clothes:)
