Baby Shower: Owl

This passed weekend I helped throw an owl themed baby shower for my cousin, who I am super close to because we’re almost the exact same age, had been dating our men for the exact same time and got married just once month apart! ย Unfortunately for me, she beat me to the baby making stage ๐Ÿ˜‰

Everything turned out super cute! I made the mini cupcakes and mini {gluten free} chocolate donuts (which I will share an easy recipe for later because they were SO good). ย I also made a bunch of various paper things with owls on them that I forgot to take photos of including name tags, gift bags, food cards, & some other misc. signage. ย  Just two months until the due date! โค


Wedding Love: Wood

I have been adoring anything wedding that has to do with tree carvings. If you got one of our invitations you know what I’m talkin’ bout! I came across a few Etsy shops that I’d probably buy everything from if I were rich. Here are some of my favorites:

1. I have loved the stuff from Block Party Press’ shop for a while, but the Wood You Love Me Necklace is catching my eye at the moment. You can get it personalized with you and your other half’s initials and wedding date on the back side! Too cute. They also have matching cufflinks in the shop to match.
2. Blue Fabric Birds with Love Heart: I’m not sure if there is any cake topper more sweet than these two fabric birds. It’s a little pricey at$93, I think I may try to make my own. I just love them too much!
3. I came across Rock Candy Vintage’s shop a few days ago and I could literally purchase about 10 different items for our wedding. This Personalized Frame is a little “differen’t” and I think it would be super cute at your wedding, and then used for decor at your home!
4. Another cake topper that I just adore, Love Birds with Tree and Nest. They are completely custom, and yet another thing you can use for decor/memorbilia in your home ๐Ÿ™‚
5. How cute would these little Personalized Heart with Easels be if they were placed on all your wedding tables! Such a cute idea.
6. Wood Burned Bride & Groom Signs: I would use them for photo props and hanging in the back of our receptions chairs. I think they are super rad!
7. These teeny Personalized Birch Heart Magnets would make perfect wedding favors! Have them made with your initials and wedding date and voila!
8. I love stamps. And I really love this Tree Heart Stamp! You can use it in your wedding decor, stationary, etc. Plus, it lasts forever! ๐Ÿ™‚
9. I love these Personalized Table Number Mason Jars as centerpieces. No seriously, I think I am going to make my own with some of those tags, so clever & rustic!
10. Wood Tree Slice Wedding Centerpiece: I also adore slices of wood as part of centerpieces. Having your initials carved into them is seriously so cute!
Hope you loved this stuff as much as I do, I wish I could have it all!! ๐Ÿ™‚

Make Yourself At Home

A couple weeks ago we started to put some elbow grease into our guest room. It was previously an ugly light yellow room, where we kept our turtle, always had the door closed because it was a hideous mess, and we always threw random junk in there when guests would come over or if we had nowhere else to put something.

Exciting, right? So here is our guest room now ๐Ÿ™‚ (Oh & sorry about some of the lighting, a storm rolled in just because I took pictures, offfff course!).

We painted 3 walls this pretty green color…

I love this bedding from Target, I am still unsure about the bit of pink in it, but I love it. Need a few more pillows though. We also purchased a night stand on sale at Target, and a lamp at Wal Mart. I already had the curtains, but plan on buying some blinds still. I also need to fill the wall behind the bed with something…

Our cat was admiring the weeds outside, hah. 

My most favorite part: the decals! I purchased them from an Etsy shop, designedDesigner. I highly recommend because they were cheap compared to similar decals and they were shipped super quickly! We painted this wall a super light grey.

View from the bed.


I love these prints that I purchased from Etsy, via GreenNest, so cute. & they were buy 2 get 1 free!
This room will also house most of my deer collection ๐Ÿ™‚
I love this room, I wish it was our bedroom, hah! I didn’t show the wall with the closet because we didn’t put the doors back on yet, oops. Still a few things to do to fill it up but I think it’s coming together nicely ๐Ÿ™‚
