4th of July Firework Safety

Safety, Safety, Safety!!
The steps to making sure you are safe with fireworks are so simple but so necessary. Make sure you take the time to pay attention to your surroundings when you light a firework.
I found an awesome guide to Firework Safety...

One Firework every child does is Sparklers. Last year I found this idea on Pinterest and knew it was a brilliant idea. We gave it a try and it worked perfectly.
 It saves those little hands from getting any burns!
NOW... Go ahead and celebrate the 4th of July... Be Safe & Have a Blast!!
Make sure if you have missed any of my 4th of July week that you take a look!

4th of July Hair & Nails

There are so many fun things to do to get into the "spirit" of the 4th of July.
 You can definitely add some sparkle to your hair and nails!
I wanted to share some fun little girl ideas & ideas just for you!
This is how Brynlee's hair was last 4th of July. I put it up in a messy bun and added pieces of shiny stars from balloon weights into her hair. We got so many compliments on her festive look!
I just bought a few different colored balloon weights from the Dollar Store.
Another Cute Idea is the STAR hair...

You can get temporary hair color or colored extensions from your beauty supply and make your own hair festive (you're never to old to get into the spirit of a holiday)
Different colored pieces in hair is so popular right now...
I don't think there has been another time in my life where nail painting has been 
There are so many cute ideas, take a look...

Now that you have some ideas...make you and your girls Sparkle this 4th of July!!
Have a great day, thanks for stopping by! Leave comments, I love reading them!!

5 Years...

Today is the day that Justin & I got married. June 21, 2008 was an amazing day, a day I will NEVER forget and one of the BEST decisions I have ever made.
Time goes by so fast, I can' believe it really has been 5 years, where does the time go??

We have made some pretty great memories over the past five years...
Take A Look:

Our Big Day

The Day We Became Parents

And We Loved It...

My Best Friend

First Family Vacation

Bear Lake


Love Him... Seriously!!


The Cabin
Family Pictures


 Hanging out with Ellie in the NICU
(one of the many times I was so grateful for such an amazing husband standing by my side and letting me know our Sweet Ellie would be ok)

Brynlee giving Ellie the "I love you" sign through the nursery window!

Christmas Pajama Party

Justin & I were going to Las Vegas for our Anniversary and we did but...
I had to bring the girls! I just couldn't leave them for that many days!! We still had the best time ever and he was such a great husband for letting me bring these two cuties along!

Thanks for stopping by and have a great weekend!!
