Noelle's 3rd Birthday Party

Happy Birthday to our Nelly, our sour patch kid is 3 years old today!!! To celebrate I'm sharing the pics from her princess themed party this weekend. Noelle has recently been certified princess crazy and is all about the crowns, gowns and shoes that come with playing dress up. So when it was time to search for a theme, the choice was pretty obvious. Obvious like being asked to have a princess party several times over. After spending hours on Pinterest, I was able to turn our living room into a royal dress up party with princess popcorn to match the occasion. 

The red carpet idea from Pinterest was just too much to pass up, I had to do it. There were stations for the kids to go around and pick up all their necessities to become royals. I made sure to provide the guys with swords and gliders to keep them busy as well.

Basement Progress + Plans + Inspiration

Refinishing our basement is a serious commitment! It's over 1400 square feet and anyone who has taken on an unfinished basement knows this as fact. With the toys taking over our living room and dining room, we knew this project was going to have to be moved to the front of the list after our main floor was finished.

So far we've knocked down two walls, started to expose brick and dry walled most of the stucco walls. It is so huge and every space needs work. It will be a hodge podge space encompassing an entertainment space, another guest room, laundry room/bathroom, play space and a wine cellar. I know, it's a lot to take on but maybe that's why I'm so excited about it. The transformation will be incredible and I cannot wait to have carpet on one floor of the house (never thought I'd say that).

This space will be used for entertainment and our second fireplace will be on full display. I want it to be cozy and inviting. I envision watching movies on the couch and playing on the floor on a really fuzzy rug. Pictures of our many travel adventures will line the walls.
