By Nicole. When Target sent us word that they were re-releasing Trolls and Troll brand apparel and accessories this Fall we flipped. We are total children of the 90’s and we were immediately flooded with memories. Like my Troll themed 7th birthday. See below. We knew we wanted to recreate this hilarious 90’s birthday party, so we brought Emily’s nieces over to show them all of our favorite 90’s memories. Ready? [Quincey’s Skater Dress // Avery’s Cozy Troll Sweatshirt and Joggers] Taught them how to make fortune tellers, and shockingly we didn’t even have to look it up on YouTube, … Read more


We couldn’t head into Back to School season on the blog without sharing this year’s Summertime obsession, the Bella Cotton Candy Maker! This little beauty has come with us to the pool, BBQs and of course a sidewalk entrepreneurial venture. Cotton Candy machines we’ve seen in the past have been quite the undertaking to transport, this one is so light and compact it can go wherever the celebration takes you!  Also, its actually easy to use. The boys made their own, sugar wasn’t flying everywhere so clean up wasn’t too bad either! Anytime they can get in on the action … Read more

Last Minute BBQ

By Emily. This Summer has been full of surprises and “make it work” moments for me. Our home has been a constant flux of visitors from friends and family and on more than one occasion I’ve found myself doing last minute prep to feed loved ones. Nothing makes me happier than seeing them all enjoy themselves and feel at home here, so we’ve been extra planful about having the things we need to host comfortably. From ingredients to silverware, seating to fun games, keeping it on hand makes everything feel doable. We’ve talked a few times on Instagram about the HP … Read more

30th at The Montage Deer Valley

Well I did it. I went and turned 30! It wasn’t as hard as awful as I anticipated…mostly because my friends & I met in the mountains at The Montage Deer Valley–and well everything is right in the world when you’re there!  We had the MOST incredible room. I definitely recommend the King Suite when you go–it was a perfect space for all of us plus two babies to pile in to!! The hotel staff greeted us with chocolate cake which coincidentally is also the way to my heart. THE POOL. Guys. We were only there 24 hours and it was … Read more

A May Shower


By Jenna. I love a baby shower and I LOVE giving gifts so when I was asked by Boogie Wipes to throw a shower for some of my friends with small babies I was thrilled!! I kept decor simple because the gifts I got to spoil my guests with were decoration enough!! The kids helped me put the gift bags together and were having the best time doing it. I love finding things for my kids to participate helping in for a party–even if it’s an adult one! Our guests were given Boogie Mist which I’ve never used, but heard rave reviews about … Read more
