DIY Bloody Shower Curtain (Halloween)

As most of you know, my family and I love Halloween! We wanted to decorate, and not leave out our bathroom this year. Instead of paying over 30 dollars for a scary shower curtain, we decided to make our own. It was very inexpensive, and took no time at all! We are even able to use it again.

Red paint
Blue paint (optional)
Containers to hold paint and water
Paint Brush
Shower Curtain (Purchased from our local Dollar Store)

Step 1:
Mix the paint to the color red you desire. I used a ton of red, and a few drops of blue.

Step 2:
Once the pain is mixed, add water to make the paint a little watery. This will help when you're splashing the paint on the curtain.

Step 3:

Lay out shower curtain on a flat surface. Paint hands and make hand prints on the shower curtain. Add as many or few prints as you'd like. Run hands down the curtain and continue until you see fit. Splash paint with brush all over the curtain to make it look like blood splatter. (Gross, I know! But, Tis the season!)

Step 4:
Allow the paint to completely dry. If you're inpatient like us, use a hair dryer.

Step 5:
Hang the shower curtain, and scare guests!

50th Wedding Anniversary

My mother, Uncle and I put on a surprise 50th wedding anniversary for my grandparents in July. They were completely shocked, and so thankful for all our hard work. We even invited out of town family that they haven't seen in years. (There wasn't a dry eye in the room when everyone saw each other.) We also created fake dinner theater tickets to trick my grandparents into going to the hall. (That was my moms idea, she's brilliant!)

We did everything as homemade as possible, and thankfully everything turned out fantastic. We created a photobooth, a game, had speeches, a memory table, centerpieces, favors and more.

I'm so blessed to have my grandparents in my life. They are two amazing people, who deserve the best. I will never forget the smile on their face, and how happy they both were. It made all the hard work and planning worth it.

Penguin Birthday Bowling Bash

I've been away from the blogging world for a bit. To get back into the swing of things, I've decided to recap my boys birthday. He wanted to celebrate his birthday by bowling with friends. He also wanted to incorporate penguins. (They are his favorite animals.)

Daddy-O and I rented out a bowling alley. (With the help of Tyson's Nana) I made a cake, bought decorations and of course made goodie bags. All the kids had fun, and even some adults joined in. It was a great day all around.

Tyson recieved tons of amazing gifts. Including a bunch of Archie comics. He absolutely adores them, and hasn't stop reading since.

Summer is here! (2014)

It's officially summer, and we've been trying to keep busy. I haven't gotten a chance to blog about the little things we've been up to. So, I thought I'd take the opportunity now.
We had our first bonfire of the year! It was an extremely cold night, but it was worth it. There's something about sitting around a bonfire that's so relaxing.

We also have been jumping a lot on our trampoline. Last year Tyson didn't have the best balance. He would fall easily, and wasn't able to jump with two feet. This year is a different story. It's amazing watching him grow and reach milestones.

Father's day unfortunately didn't go well for Daddy-o. He was severely sick, and had food poisoning. It's a good thing we decided to celebrate the day before.

Tyson and I purchased cupcakes from two talented ladies in our town. The cupcakes were absolutely perfect, and tasted delicious! (Thank you Crazy Cupcake Ladies!)

Waddles (our newest pet) and Tyson are still bonding well. Tyson loves feeding her, and watching her play. I couldn't be happier to see how responsible Ty is being.

The family and I went to my cousin Tara's wedding. It was absolutely GORGEOUS! Everything was so perfect! They had an outdoor ceremony, and reception. The decor was spot on, the wedding party was beautiful and the day was just wonderful. I'm happy I was able to be apart of the day.

We went to the zoo last weekend, it's a summer tradition of ours.
We checked out all the animals, and of course visited the goats. Tyson actually fed them this year! (YAY! His sensory issues typically make him feel sick watching anyone eat.)

Canada day was another successful day. Tyson allowed me to put a tattoo on his face! This is big news in our house. Last year he screamed and didn't want a tattoo touching him. (It's the little things!) We checked out the sites around town, and then watched fireworks. 

What have some of your favorite moments been so far this summer? I'm looking forward to creating many more memories.
