black and white pennant banner from @Target  //  www.cupcakesandcutlery.comApril is a busy month for birthdays in my family.  I try to make my party decor but sometimes you just have to outsource.  I flipped out over this black and white pennant banner at Target.  I mean, it sort of the coolest ever.  I will be reusing this one for sure!


New Music Playlist for September

Beind-the-scenes-of-blogging-with-kidsThis is why I’m super happy that school is back in session.  This is what my summer looked like when I tried to get blog posts done.  Before school was out, Lauren and I had been getting together once a week to help each other shoot DIY’s and recipes.  During summer, I had to bring my kids with me to Lauren’s house.  And I had to bribe them and I had to force them (it was hardly forcing) to play on the iPads.  It was not ideal.  I love my kids like crazy but I just don’t get anything done.  You may have noticed my content has gotten much better in the last few weeks…I agree.

So I am really enjoying my few hours a week when both kids are in school to work on blog posts.  Here is what I have been listening to while blogging.  And guess what?  I can play it loud because there is no SpongeBob I have to be mindful of.

Do you know any of these songs?  The first two I am totally in to right now.  I sing them at the top of my lungs in the car.  I’m REALLY good at singing, you guys.  But you will just have to trust me on that…That Lorde gal is like 16 and I love the tone of her voice.  Most of these songs are not new but my ears are really enjoying them.

And don’t forget that the Haim’s first album ‘Days are Gone’ is released today!  Yeah!  I’m going to go get it right now.
