Small Steps & Life Lately

and on to Life Lately!

I've been working on expanding my baking skills and prepping for my oldest son Luke's 8th birthday party!  I can not even comprehend the fact that I will have an 8 year old soon...

I had set a goal to bake once a week.  Which I've somewhat been managing.  So far I've mastered a solid vanilla cupcake recipe and cut out sugar cookies.  This friday I am attempting Key Lime pie! 

I made these cookies to travel to college with my little cousin to share with her friends. :) 

Vanilla bean cupcakes for my son's bake sale. 

Picked up a couple butter glosses. (Love the strawberry parfait color!) I think the lighter pink would be better suited for a blonde.

Working on our first Confetti & Hearts Etsy shop project!

Crafting for Luke's Ocean party.

Planting peonies this Spring!

  4. Love these quotes! And love the NYX lip glosses!!

  5. Every quote I was like "oh love that" then I realized I loved them all haha! And arent those NYX butter glosses the best? The pigmentation is perfect for every day!

  6. Awwwww that last hashtag it made me laugh and feel bad all at the same time! Those poor baby children right? ;-) Those cupcakes look gorgeous and I love the NYX lip butters I seriously have 5 in my purse all at once!

  7. Love all of the inspiration in this post-- and the lip butters- strawberry parfait is one of my favorite shades too! The Ryan Gosling cookies are too fun- and those cupcakes look delicious! I would looove to grow peonies- they're so pretty!
