Girl Scouts Cookies and Cocktails Party

It’s Cookies and Cocktails Week here in Western Washington, and I am super excited about it! For those who are new around here, I am the Program Director for Girl Scouts of Western Washington, and one of the special projects I get to be part of is our Cookies and Cocktails event. This party is an opportunity for Girl Scouts to connect with members of our community by partnering with local food/drink vendors who create Girl Scout cookie-themed bites and drinks.

This past weekend, Girl Scouts had a booth at a local vendor fair to promote the event, and I had the privilege of decorating the booth in this year’s theme of “Around the Campfire.”

Friday Favorites: The Bee’s Knees

The last Friday of February – how can that be?! I remember when I was a kid feeling like January and February seemed to last That is so not the case anymore – wow!

Today’s Friday Favorites are all “The Bee’s Knees” – some literally about bees and others just awesome events from the week that they deserve to be considered “the bee’s knees!”

This week on the blog, I’ve been reflecting on my niece’s third birthday. My mom and I had fun brainstorming a theme and planning the celebration together. We settled on “It’s Fun to BEE Three!” and that party is my first favorite this week.


Check out all the party details here.

Fun to BEE Three!

Hi friends, and happy Tuesday! I hope you had a nice long weekend. Chelsea and I enjoyed a little getaway to the coast and it was so fun.

Today, I’m sharing all the details from my niece’s third birthday! She is a Valentine’s Day baby, which dictates an obvious theme, but after her first birthday was covered in red and pink and hearts, I thought it’d be fun to change it up. Last year I did a Two-tti Fruity Birthday – check out those details here.


My brother’s family lives in Texas near my parents, so I don’t get to always be there for birthdays, but I always try to contribute in some way, and this year was no exception. Continue reading

Friday Favorites: Valentine’s Week!

Woo hoo, it’s Friday! I am so excited about a three day weekend! Chelsea and I are headed to Seabrook for a little getaway and we are really looking forward to it. Connect with me on Instagram to see what we’re up to all weekend.

This week, it’s been all about Valentine’s Day and I have loved the week full of love! My first favorite this week is the girl’s weekend I had with my Girl Scout Troop to Leavenworth. The girls are seniors in high school this year, and they made a bucket list of things they wanted to do this year. One of those items was a winter getaway in the mountains. It was a relaxing weekend and we had so much fun!

We also enjoyed a delicious cocktail – sparkling rosé berry sangria! It’s super refreshing and full of berry flavor, and it was perfect for Valentine’s Day. It will also be perfect for tonight’s belated Galentine’s Day with some of my girlfriends! Continue reading
