the perfect star garland


Piper Jane wanted a sparkle party this year for her fourth birthday (well, actually, she wanted another sprinkle party… and then decided that a sparkle-party-with-lots-sprinkles would work instead). It’s such a fitting theme- that girl just exudes sparkles. So while I edit five hundred pictures, I thought I’d share the leather star garland how to. [...]

how to make a sparkly confetti tutu

how to make a sparkly, confetti tutu

I absolutely love throwing smaller parties- I don’t do it very often (haha), but I love it! The two best parts of a more intimate gathering? Creating actual place settings and going nuts with the favors! And since my niece Keadryn’s Confetti Surprise Party was a cousin-only affair, I got to do both of those. [...]

the most versatile dresser

the most versatile dresser

As we got ready to sell our house and leave Denver, we played a game with all of our furniture called “Sell or Store.” Almost everything went into the “Sell” category (our house buyers were the primary recipients of our Sell furniture), but there were some pieces of furniture that were either sentimental (everything from [...]

kale salad with tart cherries and pine nuts

kale salad with tart cherries and pine nuts

I kind of can’t believe I haven’t shared this salad with y’all yet. Given my affinity for kale salads. And tart cherries (I loooooooove them, y’all). And pine nuts. And goat cheese. Seriously, it’s like a Kirstin’s Favorite Things salad grand slam. This salad not a Whole30 compliant (because of the goat cheese and the [...]

paleo ‘ranch’ dip with fresh herbs

homemade paleo 'ranch' recipe- once you try this, all other ranches will be ruined forever

I will be honest. I first made this ranch dip just so Adam would try the Whole30 mayonnaise that I made. But then it was so good that we just keep making it. Even better, Burke always requests the “Special Ranch” with veggies (or sweet potato fries if he’s feeling lucky) as a playdate snack. [...]

fabulous free outlined fonts

I love bubble fonts. They make me feel a little bit like I am making giant signs for student council in junior high (side note- isn’t it funny that junior high isn’t a thing anymore?). And since my mind is on all things back to school right now, I figured I should probably share some [...]
