Day 3 and The Birthday Party


Happy Monday! Before I update y'all on my jam packed weekend let's get to know me better with day 3 of the....


a picture of you as a child



I know. I was so cool right? The hipster bangs. The sun glasses. The red boots. I mean. I couldn't be any cooler. 

There are some awesome ladies out there who are also doing the challenge, if you're participating will you please send me a link to your post and I'll make sure to give you a shout out!

Check out Emily and Sarah Elizabeth and Mree

Now, I wanted to thank you all again for your help last week. The party went well, and I think my minimalist decorations were a hit!

We did a full bar with some DIY signature cocktails. We had lots of fun making simple syrups and thinking of cute names for drinks! Then I made these, and omg y'all. they were SO good. 

We opted not to get a tree this year, but we hung up lots of lights in front of the window and it's so pretty. 


I also neglected to take a picture (I know-- blogger fail), but I made this super cute polka dot banner that we ran all over the house. It was SO easy and took maybe 30 minutes to put the whole thing together. I promise I'll post a picture tomorrow--- and take you through it. So fun.

Oh. Of course there were drinking games played. Beer Pong and Flip Cup at at 25 year old's Birthday Party is totally acceptable right?

Love the picture of you as a child! So cute, I see things haven't changed. Glad the party went well!! Happy Monday!!

I think the cowboy boots are my favorite part of the picture!!! I fully appreciate drinking games, although there are certain ones that after college that I will never play again =D... I'm pretty decent at quarters (or so I tell myself). Happy Monday. oxo

Sounds like the party was a hit! And you're never too old for beer pong! Or at least that's what I'd like to think!

LOVE those red boots! I used to ask for red cowboy boots for every birthday when I was younger. Thanks for the shout out too; I loved this idea for blogging this month!
