Friday Favorites...Star Wars and more!

Friday Favorites

I'm back!  Did you miss me?  Did you know I was gone?  Well, in any case, let's get down to my favorites of the week!!!

Birthday Party!
Saturday afternoon Nick had 5 of his friends over for a Star Wars themed birthday party!
The invite

Party favors

Hershey bar in the wrapper on the left, microwave popcorn in the wrapper on the right.  These are all Nick's favorites!  And who knew they made Birthday cake M&Ms?!?!


The birthday boy the morning of his party

Funny story about these cupcakes- long story short, the dog ate the first batch and these were quickly made about an hour before the party.  I didn't frost them.  I frost much better than that!  :)

Darth Vader cake of course!

Blowing out his candles

We had a pinata, played pin the tail on the donkey, and let the kids run around the house with capes, Darth Vader and Storm Trooper masks, and foam light sabers.  It was mayhem, but the kids loved it!


My new Devotional Bible
I am soo excited to start reading!!!  This is something I have wanted to do for a long time and I am so happy to start!



New Bracelet
If you've been reading my blog for any amount of time, you already know I LOVE Stella & Dot.   Well, this may be my new favorite piece- the Interlock Cross Bracelet.  It's $39, pretty, simple, and feminine.




New Wallet
Sorry, more Stella & Dot but they just have so much good stuff!!  This is the Chelsea Tech wallet in Wild Hearts.  And guess what- this pattern is on sale for $29.50 (from $59)!!!   LOVE!!


So how was your week?  Any plans for the weekend?  I'm thinking of maybe taking Nick to the new SpongeBob movie.  Anyone else headed out to see it?

    1. LOVE the Keurig! Can't live without it! The dog- OMG. The cupcakes were still in the cupcake tin on my counter. I came downstairs and there were 8 gone. I was like, "Who ate the cupcakes?!?!?" Tin was still perfectly in place where I had left it. Ran upstairs to change the little one, came back down and the rest of the cupcakes were GONE. The tin was STILL perfectly in place on the counter! I did find dog hair and slobber on it which is what gave him up! I still don't know how he did it!

  9. Looks like fun for all. I didn't do anything quite as ambitious this weekend, but did take one son to practice parallel parking, and tossed the frisbee with the other! Then we all came home and made homemade pizzas. Family time at its best.

  11. I love the candy wrappers and the life-sized Vadar- You did an awesome job (I bet they loved it!)

    I love the idea of a bible, but end up returning to my Tablet time and time again. Guess it's meant to be :)
