The image above is from our balcony looking out to the was an amazing sunset plus we were able to see one of the cruise ships departing that night!
We had a fabulous vacation!!! Delicious food, drinks and we were waiting on, basically treated like royalty! I highly recommend traveling to Puerto Vallarta for a vacation...there are so many things to do...Zip Lines, Deep Sea Fishing, ATV Off Roading or just taking in the cultural sights!
I am going to miss Mexico...however I am ready to plan a trip for next year!

Happy Birthday Sis!!!

Today is my sister's 19th birthday! I can't believe that she is 19...this is her last year as a teen...such an exciting time in her life!
My sister is "the boss" we are doing lunch, I baked her "the cupcake cake" (lemon is her favorite), then tonight is her birthday dinner...and on Saturday just the 2 of us are going to a special event happening at Sephora before they open!! I can't wait to spend time with her!!! Hmmm...she is spreading out her birthday...or should I say birth-month!!!
Happy Birthday Sis...Love you!

It's time to party!

Yesterday was my goddaughter's first birthday...This required some serious planning!
I love cupcakes and thought it would be so cute to have that as the party theme!
After we had a count of how many guests would be there I ordered plates, balloons, streamers, plus a custom made cupcake sign! The only thing that I couldn't find was a centerpiece...nothing really stood out! Soo...I came up with this idea to paint terracotta pots white and add stripes of different widths and colors. (Just like the plates!) Last weekend my sister came over and spent her Saturday helping me paint...(I really wanted to post these last week however they were a surprise!) I spray painted them white the day prior, next we taped them off and painted each stripe a different coordinating color by using OS™ Opaque Acrylics. Once the paint had dried we brushed the top rim (or stripes) with Tulip® Fashion Glitter Bond then sprinkled them with Tulip® Fashion Glitter™ adding a little bling to the pots! After everything was dry I sprayed each pot with our Super Gloss Spray Sealer. the day before the party on Saturday I filled the pots with potting soil and planted coordinating color flowers! The finishing touch was a little pink tulle to tie it all together!

These are the decorations...

I have to say...I think that those are the best looking centerpieces!!!
