Early morning brainstorming

I’ll be the first to say that if you were to step in my house and look¬†at the blank walls¬†you would ask “how long ago did you move in here?” and I will nervously respond “about a year and something months ago” and try and change subject. We went to Tee’s uncles house on Saturday and let me just say that they have a very lovely home. Its something out of a magazine. They have decorations and pictures all over the place I bet if it was like my home it wouldn’t have the same feel to it. When you walk into their home you feel welcomed it feels like a home. I think their vibes have to do something with that too. While Tee and his uncle were chatting me and Kason took a little walk around their house. WEIRDO ALERT!Anyways every room had a picture or some pictures of smiling family members. They also had this picture were my aunt (we are all family now so why not right?) was sitting with her mother and brothers/sisters in a living room. Then in that same frame was a picture of a home. I am thinking it was or still is her moms house the house she grew up in. I don’t know that picture really caught my attention. She is a successful women so to see where she grew up and where she is now is amazing. They are spiritual people they have a wall full of crosses of all sizes and they also have decorations with scriptures on them. Over all I loved there home.

 

So this morning well no actually yesterday afternoon, I was going trough my little arts and crafts section. Its just a little corner in my bedroom with my school stuff.¬†And I found some little picture frames that I had put away so I grabbed Kason’s cake smash pictures and put two in each frame. I then went to the living room and started to look around that wall was too big for three small frames it would look odd so I then took a few steps and ended up in the dinning area. And perfect. So I grabbed the hammer and some nails and hung them there. I shoulve taken some picture but¬†really and I mean really its not big deal. So now¬†when you walk in bam!!!!!!¬†You see them three frames just hanging there inviting¬†you to view them and admire them.

 

Today on my drive to work while listening to my morning music I thought to myself I should def get a bunch of frames and decorate them myself. Because I went to hobby lobby and Michaels and let me just say I can get about 16 frames and pay the same amount at the Dollar Tree or maybe get about 4 at Ross or Marshalls. And I like to decorate anyways so it works out. As soon as I walked in to work I got my laptop out an started opened up Pinterest and found so many ideas NOT just for frames but decorating period.

¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬†¬† One of my favorite ideas is hers.. But I’m thinking of maybe doing mine with glitter

I also loved her DIY its so elegant to me, all I need is some card board and flowers I have the glue gun ready to go!

I don’t have a picture of the following one because I’ve thinking about this one for a while! I want to get a picture frame and hot glue pearls (not real ones of course you would find those on my ears lol)¬†all around it.

                            Something like this, but in one solid color and a bigger frame

Okay I think that’s it for this one, I have more ideas I just don’t want to make this like two blogs long. I think I already did. But when I do this which would probably be by the end of this week before I start school again I will post pictures of it all.

 

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

Party Planning in February!

So I recently started to look into birthday themes for Kason’s first birthday. Its months away by the way……with that being said my¬†Tee thinks im starting way to early. I on the other hand think im being super smart about it because Kason¬†turns¬†¬†1 on June and Noah turns 6 on August. So basically I will only have a month to plan Noahs. Well I have come to a conclusion why not plan ahead of time so everything just wont be done last minute. Now I am not getting anything yet. I just want to have a theme picked out and have an idea of the decorations that I am going to do and all that. Noah will be 6 so I will let him pick out the theme for his. I already have an idea of what he wants maybe ninja turtles and if he does pick that then I have the cutest idea for the balloons and goodie bags!!!Now if he chooses like say spiderman I may struggle. Kason is too little to pick out his theme so me being the awesome mom that I am I will be choosing for him. At first I was set on Mickey Mouse because I just know I can do so much with that theme. Then I thought about it everybody does Mickey Mouse and any other cartoon character. I want to do something different and cute. I went online and found so many ideas! So this is my list for Kasons themes well at least my top choices

  1. Balloons (like the movie Up) but instead of having the characters I can just make a bunch of balloons decorations
  2. Little Man (ties/bowties and mustaches!) Now this is my ultimate favorite!
  3. Owls (I have an obsession with owls) but I think this will be a bit tricky
  4. Prince Kason (basically a bunch of crowns)
  5. Blue (exactly what it sounds like just all blue decorations)

So this are my top 5 there is one problem well not such a problem but a big deal kind of Kason was born on my dads birthday and Tees birthday (I know this is like¬† so weird to me but it has convinced me that me and Tee are totally made for each other lol) so I will have to kind of convince my dad to make his birthday party if he is having one some other day. Kasons party falls on a Sunday and Noah’s on a Thursday which means I will be making his on Saturday.

I am so excited to plan the kids birthday party!!!!!!!!

what do you guys think? suggestions are welcome…

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

Kason’s 5 Month Update?

I put that question mark because nothing new really happened he was sick for a while. He had a very bad stomach virus so he was not himself. During that time all he wanted was to be held. He was not himself :/ it sucked to see him that way. Around that time Noah was sick and so was Tee. I ended up sick as well but just with a 24 hr. bug. So it’s not really an update I have been keeping a a list of the things he has done so far and I’m excited to share those with you guys:)

First suits

Christmas 2013

I’m a bit late but better late than never.

We didn’t do anything Christmas Eve I think we just slept lol. Noah went over his dad’s house so I picked him up early Christmas morning (he was at my moms) he fussed a little since I woke him up, but hey it was for a good cause.

When I got home I took one last picture of my tree (I still haven’t taken it down. Was I suppose to do afte New Years? is there like a rule? So many questions and nobody answers) then we sat and got ready to open up our goodies. Terrence and I decided on not getting each other anything.¬†But other people (my mom, his stepmom and dad sent us some gifts)¬†

Noah was so excited and happy with what he got. Kason was thankful for all the rapping paper and how he received. He was not interested in the toys he got. This was our first Christmas together as a family.  After opening gifts we cleaned up got ready and went to his aunts house then to my moms. I hope you all had a wonderful day that day!

Here are se pictures out Christmas was pretty simple nothing major but it was very special to us
