I am a working mom, working in Oil and Gas. I love being a mom and love planning parties, decorating and doing anything crafty. I have an almost 2 year old son and am expecting my second son in November.

Jack’s Fishing Birthday Party

Jack loves fishing with his daddy and when I asked him what he wanted his 2nd birthday party theme to be he said fishing! I used lots of daddy’s fishing things as decorations and incorporated some other ideas I found as I was planning as well. Most of the food had a fish theme from fish shaped peanut butter & jelly and turkey & cheese sandwiches, to a fish shaped veggie tray. We also had a tackle box full of “live bait” gummy’s that was a huge hit with the kids. For the party favors I made individual tackle boxes filled with “bait” and “weights” that seemed to be a hit with the kids. I also made dirt pudding as “live bait” cups.
For games we had a fish shaped piñata, a bounce house and an inflatable pool with fish where the kids could fish. Jack had a great time and is still talking about his party.

Jack’s Rustic Nursery

My vision for Jack’s nursery was something manly and rustic but a little bit preppy as well. I loved lime green and navy together so went with that and neutrals for my color palette. I designed the bedding and had it made at Storkland – there is also a navy and white houndstooth crib skirt with beautiful texture (not pictured here as this was taken after the crib was lowered). I finished off the room with a cowhide rug, an antler lamp and a deer head that daddy mounted on wood for the room. Mimi also made Jack the special quilt that is draped across the back of the glider.
