Welcome to my blog & Wrapping up July

Hi friends and welcome to my blog! I've had so many requests and suggestions that I start a blog or website that I figured I'd give it a try - so here it goes, wish me luck! I can't believe it will be August in just two days! I have so many ideas for fall and back to school to share with you. I figured lets wrap up the month of July and start my first post with my 4th of July Surprise for Sophia would be a great way to kick of my first post. Enjoy!

If you have followed me on Instagram, you already know that I take any and every holiday very seriously. There's something so exciting about dressing up, decorating and cooking/baking for all of them. Since I've had my daughter Sophia, I've created family traditions that we do year after year and make sure every holiday is one to remember. It is so important to me that Sophia looks back when she's older and remembers all the traditions we carried on and all the fun we had as a family. I believe that life is too precious not to celebrate, so lets make every holiday super special and unforgettable.

Although the fourth is over, I wanted to give you an inside look of what I put together for her when she woke up that morning! Seeing Sophia's reaction to all her goodies and surprises are by far my favorite part of holidays!

So here are all of the cutest finds I found for the 4th, to get them yourself I added the link below each picture! Enjoy!

Here is a look at what Sophia woke up to on the 4th of July. I have always wanted to make a balloon arch, so this was my first attempt considering I decided to do this at the time I was setting it up. I have box filled with every color balloon you can imagine, so with lots on painters tape a little bit of monkey glue, and my balloon blowing assistants, I got this thing up in no time!

I always find a few inexpensive ideas to add to your kiddo (s) surprise in the Target dollar section. These are where I just fluff up her table and bag with stickers, Crayola crayons, flags, bubbles and glow stick bracelets and maintain a low budget too. These are actually the things Sophia enjoys most!

I hope you enjoyed and please stay tuned, I have so much to share with you!
