Halloween is coming so soon! And we like to have a little Disney mixed in with our Halloween excitement. Pirates are a classic Halloween costume, right? And, we like to “BOO” our neighbors with fun treats on their doorsteps so I am often looking for cute little treats and easy ideas to add to the “BOO” package. This year, I created a Pirate Minnie Mouse popcorn box, AND I have so many other fantastic popcorn box ideas from my fellow blog friends. It’s time for the 2017 Popcorn Box Blog Hop and Giveaway! I am so super excited to be part of it again….it’s been a few years since I joined in with my BOO Wreath. The Minnie Mouse Popcorn Box is super simple, fun, and can be stuffed with your favorite treats!

Birthdays are my favorite thing about being a mom. Birthday cards, cheerful birthday decorations, a good party theme! It is all something I love. I want to show my kiddos that their life is so important! Whether that be the message in an American Greetings birthday card, the decorations, or even on the cake…..all the details matter to me when planning a summer birthday party. When we have a birthday coming up, my crafty side kicks in! That means I spend time in the months and weeks leading up to the birthday party crafting and planning all the decorations and party favors! My kids LOVE to come home with party favors. The party favors typically become my favorite part of the planning process. They are so fun! And, with a good theme, you can easily make them to match anything! Today, I am going to share my DIY Cupcake Pinata Favors with you!

Avocados are my favorite ingredient for summer dishes. On burgers, in salads, topping fajitas, or alongside my favorite Coca-Cola™ beverage in a dip or salsa-give me avocado, and I am a happy girl! This recipe is savory, yummy, and SO easy! I feel like avocados are always mushed up for guacamole, but it doesn’t have to be that way! This easy salsa has all the ingredients of a fresh salsa-and the avocados add a creamy, rich texture to it. So good! Today I am going to share my Chunky Avocado Salsa recipe with you-in hopes that it becomes a backyard favorite while you are partying with neighbors this summer!
Do you have a Tangled fan in your family? I do! My daughter and I are both huge Rapunzel fans, and the Rapunzel meet and greet at Magic Kingdom is one of my favorites at Walt Disney World. So today, I am bringing you a collection of 10 Tangled Inspired Crafts and Recipes!
One of our favorite ways to get settled into our Disney Cruise Line stateroom is to decorate the door! There are so many cute, easy ways to personalize your stateroom door! I had found some Mickey bodies on Etsy, which I am giving away as part of this Disney Land and Sea Giveaway that is going on right now, and then used some cardstock and simple Mickey head shapes to cut out decorations for our Disney Dream sailing last year. This time, for our Star Wars Day at Sea sailing on the Disney Fantasy, I decided to go one step further and decorate our door with some DIY Lightsaber Magnets!

Pumpkin, spice, everything nice….yes, it is fall! Suddenly my porch is festive with the colors of orange, green, yellow, and red. I have put up our fall centerpiece and started baking and drinking hot, comforting drinks. And now, I have discovered these amazing Starbucks® Caffè Latte K-Cup® Pods.…which call for a cozy and easy serving tray for my fall entertaining! This morning, I am going to share this easy DIY Fall Coffee Serving Tray with you!

In my house, fall is synonymous with two things. First, football season and second it’s time to bake! Once the weather cools, it is time for relaxing Saturdays and Sundays, watching our favorite teams on TV…or if we are really lucky, in person. However, when we can’t get to the game in person, we do a little “home gating” and enjoy our favorite foods and fun right here in our living room. That being said, I also have three kiddos and a husband to feed during game time. So, we try to keep things fun, easy, and all about the team spirit around our house. While the coaches are sending in players, I am sending in Skittles® to add color and fun to our game time. That is where the Best Sugar Cookies Ever come into play!
Fall has arrived. Well, kind of. The mornings feel like fall here, but by the afternoon it is summer again! I waited, until two weeks into September, to start decorating for fall. I just couldn’t help it! As we move into October, I will for sure be adding more decor, namely to the front porch. However, for now the wreath is on the door, and I resurrected some past fall decorations and added a few others to our living space. As I was doing so, I realized how easy, and frugal most of these projects are, so I thought I would share them with you today!

I am so ready for summer entertaining! We are putting the finishing touches on our new patio this week, and I cannot wait to start cooking out, hanging out on the patio with our neighbors, and just enjoying being outside! Plus, that means bringing some summer color to our new patio, too! Yay! When I saw these cute pineapple placemats at the store, I knew with a little vinyl and some punch of color, they would fit perfectly with my new Rubbermaid Pitcher and party platter that I had picked up at Kroger. Today, I am going to show you how to spruce up some outdoor placemats and a drink pitcher. This is a super easy project for beginners with your Silhouette Cameo, so let’s get started!

Are you ready for “back to summer”? We talk SO much about “Back to School”, but with the end of school upon us, I am focusing on getting back to summer this year with my family. Summer break gives us a lot of time to spend together. Although some days are crazier than others, I am always reminded that these times will pass quickly, and I need to step back and appreciate my family for who they are and who they are growing to be! My older two are going into 8th grade next year! I can’t believe it! So I am savoring every chance I have with them during the summer. With our new house and new patio, we will be doing lots of entertaining this summer. So, I am ready to celebrate with these cute Back to Summer Party Favors!
