Sometimes you just go with balloons...


 Happy EASTER my friends! 
 I have lots of Easter photos to share later this week... and I have an Insta-recap coming too... but today is all about Joe's birthday photos... AND I've also got a giveaway beginning tomorrow! It's going to be a fun Spring break week.
Thank you Target, for making this banner so darling. (Even if I'm a little ticked at you for knocking off so many Etsy/blogger ideas for all your new lines.)
 Cinnamon cream cheese frosting.  Is there any other kind?  Now that I've had this... I think not.   (I will be sharing this recipe on one of my bloggy buddy's sites soon, so stay tuned.)



 Joe decided all the napkins and items in my party drawer were too girly.  And he didn't really want a "theme".  Oops.... I kind of made the theme balloons. Luckily he isn't too old to enjoy twelve balloons marking the birth of his grand entrance here on earth. 
 Adrain blew up little water balloons and we tied them onto skewers and stuck one into each cupcake.  Big hit.  (And thank you Pinterest for that idea!!)
 




 I love this kid.  He challenges my parenting limits to the edge...but oh how I love him.  He is going to move mountains and build sky scrapers on the rubble someday.  Literally and figuratively.  Count on it.

It's our Spring break week but I will be back tomorrow with a giveaway!!  So please hurry back!

  1. I love the simple balloon theme! And his birthday pictures are perfect.

    Now a questions for ya that I've always wondered but never asked...when you rearrange things on the walls, do you putty in the holes and have to repaint every time? It seems like you move pictures around often so that would mean lots of touch ups :) I'd love to know what you do.

  6. We're big balloon fans here-my husband is a balloon artist on the side. I know, weirdest fact ever. And he is NOT a clown, just for the record. Clowns are scary and evil. He is hot and talented. There's a total difference:)
    Happy birthday to your boy and Happy Easter to all of you today!
