Better than store bought ALMOND ROCA

 I promise you this almond roca is better than the kind you get at Christmas from your work office party! And the best part is, it is super easy to make at home! Only 4 ingredients and you will have a batch whipped up to share with friends or hoard for yourself (like me).

DIY baby shower on a dime!

This past weekend I hosted a baby shower for a sweet friend of mine. She is the most beautiful girl, inside and out. She is a strong mother who has quiet a story to tell. I was excited to share this special day with her.
I wanted to share with you how I put together this party start to finish in case you are hosting and need some ideas!
Luckily Rachel agreed to let me take her maternity photographs so that I could design my own invitation. This was really fun and I loved the practice! Here are a few of my favorites...

Good morning friends! I have been busy designing a little invitation for a baby shower I am throwing in a few weeks. After making it, I decided I would clean up my version and make a generic card for you to use if you want!

Anniversary Questionnaire

Today is my anniversary! My handsome is taking me out to breakfast and I had an idea come to mind about starting a new tradition. I thought it would be fun to come up with a little "Anniversary Questionnaire" to document feelings from each year shared together. Feel free to (right click) save this to your picture library and print for your own use.
I think it will be really fun to go back and read these memories when we are 80. Ok by then we will probably rather have a nap.
