My best friends wedding... Reagan/David!!!

We just came back from the most BEAUTIFUL wedding up in Tahoe for one of my bestest friends, Reagan who has been my partner in crime for over 15 years!!!! She is my Alpha Phi sorority sister and we fell in love in Chico many ages ago and have been inseparable ever since. She is the most amazing friend who  ALWAYS goes out of her way to be there for me during every wonderful moment along with hardships in my life. She is always the first one there and the last one to leave my side! It has been soooo fun to finally make it all about her and to celebrate the love of her life, her new hubby!!!! Congrats Reagan and Dave!! The Hu's LOVE you!!

Waiting for the bride to walk down the Isle... sooo excited!


Rehearsal Dinner fun!
Wedding Night!
We had a WONDERFUL Tahoe local Nanny who made sure our little's were sleeping soundly through the night while Mommy and Daddy had lots of fun!!!!

Old McDonald had a farm.....

I love this time of year because there are so many fun festive places to take the kids!!! We have really been on a farm kick lately as our little's love playing with animals!!! Here are some pics from the last couple weekends from Lemos Farms, Gilroy Gardens (they have an amazing Holiday Farm open), and many stops at the

Sneak Peek from Family shoot!

My sweet friend Tara with Kent Avenue Photography just sent me a couple sneak peeks from our recent family shoot up in the Los Gatos Mountains!!! She truly is a genius with the most incredible eye and my babies just LOVEEE her to death!!!!

Pumpkin LOVE!!!

For the past three weeks all of my free time has been consumed with painting pumpkins and crafting spooky projects with my babies! We are now up to about 15 giant pumpkins and of course they are all covered with colorful rainbows and hearts!!!

I found that the Martha Stewart paint really comes out amazing on the texture of the pumpkins. I also used gold leaf paint along with metallic silver and bronze to really make them POP! I sealed them to protect them from the rain with ceramic paint sealer so they don't chip or crack.

 Here are a couple of my favorites from painting with my girls:

Tonight I am going to try to make an Ombre Pumpkin like this one:

I also want to try to make a rainbow glitter pumpkin like this one:

I will post them both when finish them!! Yippee!!!!


I am simply obsessed with this oh- so easy project that I managed to actually do for Lulu and Lolacakes that I simply had to share!!!

This recycled water bottle crown is perfect for little girls and big girls! Nobody said, big girls don’t like crowns, right? All you need is a water bottle and some rhinestones….

These DIY recy­cled water bot­tle crowns are per­fect for a lit­tle (or big!) girl’s party. They’re super sim­ple to put together and make a great party activ­ity as well. All you need is a plas­tic bot­tle and some rhinestones.
What You Need
  • Rhine­stones
  • Glue
  • Scissors
  • Ribbon
  • Plas­tic bottle
Step 1 Cut the top and bot­tom off your plas­tic bot­tle. You will be left with a cylin­der shape. The height of mine is about 6 inch.
Step 2 Cut triangles out of the cylinder to make a crown shape.
Step 3 Put little dots of glue on the back of the rhinestone and attach them to the crown. If you use too much glue, they will slide down.
Step 4 Punch a hole in either side of the crown. You can heat up the tip of a pointy knife with a lighter and punch a hole into the plas­tic like that.

Step 5Thread a rib­bon through these holes and tie a knot so they stay secure.
