Friday Favorites: Wreck ‘Em Tech!

Happy Friday everyone! This week I’ve been celebrating my alma mater, Texas Tech University, on the blog since we received a #3 seed ranking for the NCAA Basketball Tournament.

My first favorite this week is the Tech tablescape I shared on Monday. It is full of school spirit!


Read the details here.

My next favorite is delicious Double T Double Chocolate brownies I made to add to the tablescape.


I found some great new baking items that made creating these fun treats a breeze. At the grocery store, right next to my favorite cake mixes, I found a pre-filled pastry bag with chocolate frosting and a star tip. This made decorating so easy!

At Michaels, I discovered a whole world of amazing baking supplies in their expanded baking decorating section. Every color of the rainbow sprinkles, including special shapes! I was able to purchase small bags of red and black sprinkles ($1/each) with no leftovers. I will definitely be utilizing this section for future baking needs to get exactly what I need with little waste afterwards.

I am by no means a skilled cake/cookie decorator, but with these new tools, I feel like an expert 😉


On Wednesday, I shared about the Texas Tech Legacy Program. This program is a great way to share my love for Texas Tech with my niece and nephew. I love these pictures my brother captured when the kids opened their welcome gifts – definitely a favorite!

Another favorite is the Texas Tech Hillflint sweater Chelsea got me for Christmas. I wore it for the first time yesterday for game day! This sweater has a vintage feel and is very well made. I love it, and I know I’ll be sporting it to represent my Red Raiders for years to come.


And my final favorite of the week is the Tech WIN last night! The game was definitely exciting and I’m so happy the Red Raiders ended with a victory! On to Saturday!!


Party on!

On Fridays, I link up with Friday Favorites and Five on Friday.

Tablescape Tuesday: Texas Tech

It’s my first “Tablescape Tuesday” blog post today, and I’m really excited that it features my favorite team, Texas Tech! I got the idea for a “Tablescape Tuesday” from one of my favorite bloggers, Pizzazzerie.

I’m a huge fan of March Madness, and especially this year since Texas Tech is in the tourney. Texas Tech received a #3 seed, and I can’t wait to cheer them on in their first game this Thursday!!

In preparation for Thursday, I’ve been gathering all my red and black party goods, along with some of my basketball party supplies from last year’s March Madness party (get those details here).


I first layered on some white and black polka dot wrapping paper as my base. Then, Continue reading

Mantle Makeover: St. Patrick’s Day

Happy March! Today, I’m sharing about a quick and easy makeover I did to our mantle in celebration of St. Patrick’s Day!

Our mantle was previously decorated in celebration of the Pantone Color of the Year for the past couple months, so I was excited to change it up.

I found some great items at Michaels, Target, and JoAnn’s, and incorporated all three into the mantle, along with some decor I had on hand from previous years.

Friday Favorites: Cookies & Cocktails

Happy Friday, friends! Last night was the 2nd Annual Cookies and Cocktails Event hosted by Girl Scouts of Western Washington. This fun night is an opportunity for local chefs to create bites and drinks using Girl Scout cookies in their creations. My favorites this week are all about the event!

My first favorite is the festive set-up I created for event promotion. It was so fun to create, and helped set the tone for the event.


I blogged all the details on Monday. You can read that post hereContinue reading

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.”
