I live a simple life, exploring the great outdoors, and slowly the world with my husband and our 2 amazing little girls. I am a Shutterbug, I am constantly taking pictures, my camera is like an extra appendage! I love to cook, craft, bake, travel and just enjoy life! I've been told I'm a "Jane of all trades" and I like to tell people I have Creativity A.D.D. My interests are completely random and can range from making hair bows for little girls to "dumpster diving" and refinishing furniture with my best friend! I paint, I use power tools(and I'm quite proficient with a hot glue gun), and I just learned to sew this year, so I'm excited to see what will come of that! I hope you enjoy tagging along for this crazy journey of randomness!

Monster Mash aka Our Super Massive Halloween Party

So, my friend and I planned this really awesome Halloween(Costume required) party...had all these brilliant ideas, all these cute decorations, and alllllll kinds of RSVP's!  We were planning our little hearts out, decorations, food, drinks, games, contests, dj's, the whole package...assuming we had, oh let's say-LESS than 80 people...I think our original guesstimate was around 70 at most...HA! As our RSVP list grew to almost 130 people a mere 24 hours before the party (I know, right?! Did you faint, too? Sheesh...) so did our anxiety about getting everything done-having enough food and drinks and still having money to survive on! Well thankfully, quite a few of our friends really rock...They offered to help out in any way they could, we had friends bring food, goodies, ice, and some who actually stayed and helped clean up the mess!! It turned out to be one awesome night, filled with fun and hysterical laughter as we watched all of our kiddos dance to the music, light show, and fog the DJ so(too)often delighted them with! ;) And, it turns out, we have some pretty creative friends-GREAT costumes all around!! Enjoy! (Thank you to everyone who made this night awesome!)














































Falling for Fall


Just a peek at some of the beauty Fall brings in Ohio...we thoroughly enjoyed it this year! We live for Fall! Visiting the local parks, hiking, playing in the leaves, picking pumpkins, hayrides, bonfires, enjoying the outdoors in pants and long sleeves(without sweating!) and best of all, Buckeye Football! I have to make a separate post for Halloween... :)
