Happy 6th Birthday McKenzie!


Today our sweet 2nd daughter McKenzie turns 6! I feel like it's gone by so fast, but whether I like it or not, we have a 6yr old now. McKenzie is quite the little tom boy, so her theme request was Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles. I'm sad I don't have a photo of the whole table with decor, but above you can see her cake! I was lucky to find it at our local grocery store because the didn't carry it when I looked several weeks before, so I was worried I'd have to hunt for a cake. 

She's never been much in to bikes until this Spring so we opted to get her a brand new bike from us as her gift. We thought it would help encourage her even more with bikes, and everything we have is hand me downs, so we wanted to gift her something new for a change and it truly be her own. 

Below the page break you'll find photos from her party last weekend, and I can't wait to see where this year takes her and how she changes. She'll be going in to to First Grade in July and she's such a sweet little girl with a big heart.

5 Great Drinks to Serve at Parties

One of the best ways to make sure your parties become legendary is to go to town on the catering. While food and nibbles are an optional extra, drinks can make or break a party. So no pressure! Choosing which tipples to serve can be tricky, but here's some great ideas for drinks that will keep everyone happy.

1. Classic Mojito

The classic Mexican rum cocktail is always a crowd pleaser. All you need to make your own is white rum, soda water, mint, fresh limes, sugar and plenty of ice. Get your guests involved in crushing the ice and ripping up mint, it's a hands-on drinking experience and lots of fun.

2. Craft beers
Craft beers, or boutique ales, are the true hipster drink of the moment. For a smaller gathering they are an excellent choice, and most large supermarkets have a great selection. Give your guests different ones to spark plenty of discussion about which one is best. They can be on the pricey side though, so if you have plenty of advance notice and a little bit of know-how, why not consider brewing your own?

Nourish by BeliBea Review

Thanks to BeliBea for the review opportunity

BeliBea is an innovative maternity bra line made to help all mothers through the nursing journey, offering comfort and convenience.


While Lakeon and I are not breastfeeding, I have a wonderful friend who is, and she was thrilled to help me out with this review. Her son is now five months old and breastfeeding is going great, however the struggle comes from finding good breastfeeding bras in a reasonable budget that work well. When I got the pitch for this BeliBea Nourish bra, I knew Angelina would be a great fit, and below you'll find her review and thoughts on the product!

Thanks to Shoetopia for allowing this review


Fashionable shoes don't have to be expensive! Check out Shoetopia.com and look at our affordable selection of women's shoes.


I've never owned a pair of boots but I've longed for some for years. Last Fall I came across another blog review, learned about Shoetopia, and fell in love with so many of their items on their website. After some hiccups, I got in touch with them and was sent two pair of boots for review. Even though we're now in Spring, boots can be used for any occasion and I'm so excited to share this company with you.
