Connor & Ellie’s Backyard Circus 4th Birthday Party

Yesterday we had a circus birthday for Connor and his cousin Ellie. They both turned 4 within a day of each other and they’ve always shared a special bond. The kids wanted to do a backyard circus party so that’s what we did! Big shout out to my sister-in-law Rebecca & mother-in-law Sherry for making all the costumes! Everything turned out so good and I think all the kids had fun participating in the circus. We had perfect weather yesterday too….I was actually sweating! I can’t believe these two are already 4 years old. My baby is growing up too fast!

Most of this post is going to be pictures of the party. Hope you enjoy Connor & Ellie’s backyard circus 🙂

Five on Friday

Happy Friday everyone! It’s about time!!! I am so excited for the weekend. We are going to have sunny skies and the circus birthday party is HAPPENING. I’m also shooting a wedding on Saturday evening & I’m so excited about it 🙂

1.  I shared this on Instagram.  When my sister was in town visiting she told me about Teez w/Eez.  She got hers from a salon and I got mine from Amazon.  It works amazing!!!

2.  Here is what it looks like….Give it a try and let me know what you think.

3.  My BFF Ellen is in Dallas for vacation this week.  We’ve been friends since middle school and I love her to pieces.  I’m on a mission to get her to move here.  She loves DFW, now all we have to do is find her a job!  Anyone hiring for someone with management experience and a degree in fashion merchandising???  Let me know!  We went to California Pizza Kitchen, did a little shopping, and then ended the night at Sprinkles for ice cream sundaes.  They are to die for….SO GOOD!

4.  My friend Heather sent me some Jamberry nails to try.  I’ve heard of them, but I’ve never tried them before.  They come in so many cool colors and designs.

5. Here is how I styled my Jamberry nails.  LOVE.  They were super easy to apply and I can tell they’ll last for a while.  For more info on how to order these beauties contact Heather for more information.

I know it’s a little weird but

I have a family talent handed down from generation to generation.  I can SQUEAK!!!!  It’s just a funny thing my Dad taught me and he can even do entire songs.  Just press your lips together and make a funny squeaky noise.

When stopped at a stoplight, I

Check my phone.  But I NEVER take my selfies while stopped or driving.  I also just jam and sing to music.  Most of the time I’m in a rush and in my head thinking “GO GO GO!”  Also, I HATE that song #Selfie….OMG I am so over it.  If I hear it one more time on the radio I may barf.  Ugh.

My guilty pleasure is

Chocolate. Coffee.  Need I say more?  I think those to are obvious if you read this blog.  Right now I would give my right arm for a Kinder Egg.  If you’ve never heard of them….Google it!

My favorite way to unwind

Sleep in.  Get a professional massage (by that meaning one I don’t have to beg for where my husband uses one hand to rub my back)  I also like to watch reality TV.  Right now I’m liking Rehab Addict on HGTV.

Also don’t forget about my Easter photo special!!!
