About Me

My photo
I have discovered it is really hard to be Queen in a household with 3 princesses! Somebody is always borrowing my tiara! Well in between hunting my stuff down I am the proclaimed Queen in the Land of fluff (where my husband swears one day that he will die from glitter lung (you get the picture!) Besides that I am a dieting, exercising, crafting, biblestudying kind of girl.

oops! I lost my camera!

I did an oops! I threw a large 4th of July party for family and friends -it was so much fun! However I did a hostess oops! I forgot where I put my camera and in the rush of having a party I was unable to look for it (which I found the day after located in my van -ahh! exactly where the camera was not supposed to be) So below are some pictures of some things I made or printed that I got from other blogs. The below 4th of July banner, flag straws, cupcake decorations all from the blog Tweedle Dee Designs Brandi over there makes the cutest designs! I know my pictures do not even begin to give her the credit she deserves. She helps the common gal look like she has it going on! Thanks Brandi!

I(I also made tissue flowers for decor inside, and outside on the front porch)
-The kids loved using the straws with the flags on them! It gave a very patriotic look to our beverages! Also note the cute water bottle wraps that she provided all for free downloading and printing!!!

Below is a picture of the very last cupcake (that I admit I put back just for me - you all know how you don't always get to take your time and eat when you are playing hostess) Two things to notice: look 1) at the cute cupcake decor that also came from Tweedle Dee designs and 2) look at how fab my poorly lit picture shows off the hit of the party, ladies you are gazing at the last Salted Carmel cupcake - yum!!!! I got this delicious recipe from Joy's Hope Something homemade everyday. This is a wonderful blog you really should check out her great ideas - and if you want a dessert that wows! the crowds - look no further than this recipe!!

Thank you Brandi and Joy for helping me throw a great party!! Sorry that I had to take these pictures a day late, instead of during the party!
***This just in my mom had her camera so here are a few family pics from the 4th of July:
Some of the cool older kids wanting to eat as far away as the could from us adult resorted to eating outside old school style -picnic style! (kaylee, Gracie, Mckenzie, Destiny, and Caleb)

Gracie and Max - sparkler time!
Princess Paige waiting for the firework show to start! Hope you all had a Great 4th July! I love our country, and are so thankful for the armed forces, and their families!
