Happy Tuesday dear readers! I hope you all had a great weekend and a good 4th of July. I had a great weekend with family and friends and couldn't have asked for better weather. We saw fireworks over the lake and ate lots and lots of good food! I am very proud of the state that I live in because of all of the outdoor activities that you can do in the summer. I would prefer the ocean but we do have a ton of lakes that we take advantage of during the summer. Since I love my state so much I have really been digging the state silhouette projects that I have seen on Pinterest lately. I even created one last fall on a pumpkin. I have been trying to find something else that I could put a silhouette on and saw my plain flower pot needed some sprucing up!

Hello and I hope you are all enjoying the first few days of summer! We only have a few more weeks until the fourth of July gets here. I don't know if you do any entertaining or go to any summer parties, but I wanted to share this cheap and easy patriotic craft with you today.

Hello to all of you! We have certainly had a busy month around my house. My little girl had a birthday this month. It's crazy how fast time flies when you have a child. Every year since her first birthday I have tried to make all of the birthday decorations and invitations myself. It is so much work but so much fun as well. This year was the first year my daughter has been old enough to know what she wanted to do for her birthday. It all started with the idea of her wanting to have a pirate ship just like captain Hook's on her birthday cake. My daughter is a fan of Jake and the Neverland Pirates and anything Peter Pan. So, I thought it would be kind of fun to do a Neverland themed birthday party for her.

Hello there friends! I hope you are doing well and are enjoying some beautiful spring weather where you live. Today was a great day for my daughter and I, we were able to go on a walk and play outside. We even went on a hunt for the Easter bunny. Actually, we have a sweet little bunny who made a nest under one of our pine trees. Every now and then we can see the bunny hiding out under the tree and my daughter is loving it. She is convinced that it is the Easter bunny! Anyway, speaking of the Easter bunny I think my mantel is already for the Easter bunny's visit.

Hello! I am so happy the calendar officially says it is spring. I am just waiting on mother nature to realize that it is spring too. It's a cold and rainy/snow day here. Yep, we have received both today! Last week I made these easy and delicious lemon drop cookies to put me in the mood for spring!
