It's apparent when I'm in the middle of a project, because the rest of my house is a complete disaster. Today I'm spending the day quickly cleaning the entire house, just so I can work on my projects some more. Has anyone else ever done that... cleaned the house just so you can mess it up again?

My project is June's party. I really thought it was going to be simple. And by "simple" I mean that we're just inviting family and we're just having a dinner. But like everything I plan, it takes more time and effort than I think.

I also wanted to keep it simple (and cheap), by making all of the decorations with things I already have.

Again, NOT simple...

...but really fun.


  1. GAHHHHHH! Those are SOO freakaleakin cool!! You're throwing all my bday parties from here on out.

  2. I went through the EXACT same thing with Gavin's party! I initially just wanted something small, but then family came from out of town and a whole bunch people wanted to come. There went my plans for "small." Then Pinterest happened and I found all kinds of cute things I wanted to do. I thought it would be cheap because I was doing most of it myself and that turned out not to be true. It still didn't even turn out how I wanted it because I realized I had way too much stuff for the kids and not enough outdoor decorations. Oh, well. It was my first time. Live and learn. It was still fun and that's the most important thing. Best of luck to you!!!
