[wear] girlie bows and baby bands

My girls need new bows and I've been putting it off entirely too long.  Then I find out some great friends welcomed their new little baby girl into the world just a few days ago.  So I think I'm forced to revisit the land of bows and bands.  So here is some inspiration via Pinterest:

[pin] ruffles and roses

I posted a while back ideas for some Belated Birthday Fun.  It definitely turned out to be fun, just not quite as detailed.  The whole thing started because of Pinterest.  Yes, it's your fault (AGAIN) Pinterest.  Enter cake ...

Exit a whole idea board full of sweets ...

Conclude with a partial list of beautiful desserts filled with pink deliciousness.  And a pretty vintage sheet.

Our desserts included coconut cupcakes, nutella and raspberry mini pies, ooey goey bars, strawberry yogurt parfaits, pink chocolate oreos, sparkle popcorn and pretzel mix, salted caramel bars courtesy of Sadie, and last but not lease a hybrid ruffle and rose cake.

[live] summer time in my space

Our bedroom in always last.  Always.  I redo the girls room, Jack's room gets a new bed, the living room gets a new color scheme.  But our bedroom, it's the landing spot for all things without a home, the door that gets shut when company comes over.  Now to fix it.  The kids' toys on the floor can wait another day.  Last night was a closet redo for the hubby - tonight my wardrobes will be all squared away and then tomorrow evening, time for artwork and new linens.  I need a little summer time in my space.  Wish me luck!
