Weekend Look Book

Happy Monday lovelies!

How is already March?!!!!

I had quite an eventful weekend! Here are a few highlights!

Friday was Go Texan Day at Teddy’s school. We were super unprepared for this last year because I only heard about it the night before, so I was determined to have him all set for it this year. We bought hats and bandanas and were ready to go! He wanted to wear boots, but their school has a strict athletic shoe only policy, so, he rocked his Sauconys. :)

Friday was a pretty jam-packed day! I hosted a fun little party at Trina Turk in The Woodlands that evening! I love this gorgeous store!

We spent most of Sunday relaxing.  Reagan played play-doh upstairs…I joked that she must’ve taken my “no play-doh” upstairs rule as a suggestion. Ha!

My new favorite is my GOLD & SILVER METALLIC TOTE!

What I’m Loving Wednesday

This week is flying by, which makes me happy because it’s only a couple days until the weekend!

Here are a few things that I am just loving this week!

What I'm Loving Wednesday // Fancy Ashley

GOLD TENNIES- Anytime I see a gold pair of tennies, I feel like they were made for me and I must have them! These were no exception and the second I saw them on J.Crew’s site a few weeks ago, into my shopping cart they went! They are cute and so comfy! Perfect paired with jeans or workout clothes! I also love this color combo as well! You can’t ever go wrong with gold or neon green ever!

MAC LIPSTICK in REBEL- I love a fun pink lipstick! This one looks super dark, but it’s so versatile. You can wear it dark or blot it for a lighter color. I love it!! I’m loving this DAZZLEGLASS gloss in EXTRA AMPS on top of it!

BRASS RIMMED PICTURE FRAMES- My bestie gifted me with one of these for Valentine’s Day and I immediately had to go buy more. You know how much I love all things brass! These are perfect for my family room!!!

KISS AND MAKEUP STUDS- These are seriously too cute!!! Such a fun pair of earrings!!!

GLASS & GLITTER SILICONE WATER BOTTLE- This water bottle is destined to make any workout just a tad fancier!

VINTAGE RING LONG PENDANT- I love how versatile this piece is! It would be the perfect addition to any outfit and such a fun layering piece as well!!

GIRAFFE AT HOME LEOPARD PRINT THROW- This is hands down my fave blanket ever. It’s been cold the past couple days and I just love snuggling up on the couch with this blanket and watching tv!

So, what are you loving this week?

Ikea Hack-DIY Lego Table

We are in full fledge Lego mania over here. The amount of Legos, Teddy received for Christmas and now for his birthday is crazyyyy. He LOVES them!!! It only takes stepping on a Lego with a bare foot, once to know that it is pretty much the worst pain ever! Then when you do it over and over again, you feel like you might lose a foot or a toe! Man, does it hurt!

e51406277bc9b8a2cb8d51f3be02be0e

After Christmas, the playroom looked like a lego bomb went off. I mean seriously, there were Legos EVERYWHERE! I decided we needed a Lego table and stat! I spent the better part of the middle of that night, surfing Ikea’s site for the perfect coffee table to use. I found THIS ONE that had a shelf and it seemed perfect. I wanted to have drawers and dividers inside, for organization and the shelf was the perfect thing to place my drawers on!

For such a simple DIY, it has been life changing and if you have Lego mania at your house and have room for a table like this, I would highly recommend it. You could really do a smaller version as well and still get most of the Legos off the floor. I wanted a table that was large enough for both kids to work and have separate sides (to minimize fights!), so this size worked perfectly for us.

Ikea Hack: DIY Lego Table // Fancy Ashley

The Necessities:

Ikea Lack Coffee Table

 10″ x 10″ Lego Baseplates (12 pieces needed)

Clear Shirt Drawers (6 drawers needed)

Compartment Trays (6 needed)

Small Inserts (18 needed)

Hot Glue Gun

Mounting Tape

It’s a pretty simple process! like you could probably finish this in less than an hour! Once you put your table together, you are ready to start gluing your baseplates on. We measured the table and made sure we had about an inch to 2-3 inches all around. It worked out perfectly and 12 10′ x 10″ baseplates fit the table really nicely. Once the pieces are all glued on, you are ready for your drawers. We secured these with mounting tape. Without the tape, the drawers were slipping and sliding everywhere because of tiny, not-so-careful hands. :) We realized this pretty quickly. Both Teddy and Reagan are loving the table. They use it all the time and the best part? Most of the legos are on the table and not on the ground, which makes my poor feet, very happy.

 The little organized drawers make me so happy!

Legos in the drawer and not on the floor!!! Woohoo!

Since I built this, this is the only time that this baby has been cleaned off. It typically covered in a bunch of different Lego creations!

These POUFS are perfect in every way! We love them! They make the perfect perch to sit on while creating and even Mr. Fancy and I find them comfy to sit on!

Teddy was so excited when he walked into the playroom and saw the table, that he kissed it! Ha!

I thought Teddy would be the main user of the table, but Reagan is equally obsessed with it, which makes me so happy!

This was by far, one of my easiest DIY projects and it has made such a difference in how legos are played with around here! We are all thrilled with it!!

Tired of stepping on Legos, too? Time to make your own Lego table!!

Happy Tuesday, friends!

Happy Presidents Day!

Happy Presidents Day from my Little Presidents!

Reagan // Fancy Ashley

Since both of our kiddos were named after amazing presidents, I love to teach them about presidents! I found THIS BOOK this other day and it’s so neat! It talks about all of the presidents and has so much info! Teddy is especially interested in it so far and we have enjoyed reading and learning about all the presidents! It’s such a fun book!

I hope your week is off to a fabulous start!

Twirling and Smiling are Her Favorite

It’s safe to say that my little president, Reagan, loves ALL things girly. She LOVES dressing up in fun dresses and ruffly outfits and twirling around. Weddings and holidays are some of her favorite occasions because she gets to dress up and be fancy! We are already thinking about Easter dresses in our house and both of us fell in LOVE with THIS DRESS at Nordstrom the other day. She takes after her mama and loves that place so much. We often spend hours just shopping at our local store. We can buy school clothes and dress up clothes, shoes and even hair accessories at the same time, which we both love! Anything to make shopping with a toddler more enjoyable and easy, right?! Nordies has the best selection of special occasion dresses! Think flower girl dresses, Easter, first communion, holidays, etc. There are seriously so many cute options. Reagan and I could pick a bunch that we just LOVE! The little presidents have been flower girl and ring bearer in two weddings so far and Nordstrom is always our first stop to look for outfits! It totally feels full circle anytime I am in there with the kids, because my mom and grandmother used to take me shopping there a lot when I was growing up!

I just love these sweet pics of my sweet girl in her new favorite dress. She is truly the perfect mix of sweet and sassy (as you can tell from these pictures!).

Do you have any special occasions coming up that you need a little girls’ dress for? I’m thrilled to have our Easter dress picked out this early!

Happy Thursday, friends!!!

 Thank you to Nordstrom for sponsoring this post. As always, opinions are my own. 

Teddy’s 6th Super Hero Party Details

Yesterday, I shared some of my favorite photos of Teddy’s 6th Superhero Party!

Today, I wanted to share some of the details.

Teddy's 6th Superhero Bash // Fancy Ashley

When Teddy decided on a superhero party, I immediately thought pop art superheroes. It’s such a fun theme and I just love all the bright colors. We did have a batman balloon and batman piñata, so, there were some characters thrown in for good measure. Because at 6 years old, it’s all about the characters! Plus, all the kiddos were encouraged to come dressed as their favorite superheroes, if they had a costume on hand.

I had a vision of what I wanted everything to look like and I’m so lucky to have such a TALENTED friend like Lauren, who helped bring all those visions to life.

I wanted little Teddy and Reagan illustrations on the invite because I just love character illustrations. I decided to add Reagan’s character to the invite because it was a boy and girl party and I wanted to get that across upon first glance.

Teddy's 6th Superhero Bash // Fancy AshleyTeddy and I sat and came up with names for all the food and drinks. The “kryptonite nuggets” were a fan favorite. You can’t ever go wrong with serving Chick Fil A at a party. It’s Teddy’s favorite restaurant, so naturally that is what we he requested. Oh and I’m positive that I ate at least 8 chicken mini sandwiches. Those things are my fave.

We served “Joker Juice” for the kids (Honest juice pouches) and bottles of water.

We served “Riddler Juice” aka “Mommy Mimosas” for the adults. I also had beer, waters, sweet tea and lemonade for the parents.

We had pirates booty and veggie sticks for snacks. I ordered mini popcorn boxes and added stickers to all of them. They were the perfect size for little hands to walk around snacking on.

Each kiddos had a mini water bottle at their spot at the tables. I had these water bottle wraps printed onto full sheet label paper and it was so easy to just cut them out and stick them onto the bottles.

Here is the food table. Mr. Fancy traced and cut a city skyline out of black poster board. The large “Super Teddy” poster was such a hit as well. I just loved it! So, did Teddy! The pennant banner was printed and I just cut out the triangles and taped it to ribbon. It was so simple and I loved how it looked. I used a yellow wire basket (flea market find) of mine for the cake and cupcake stand.

The cake was seriously amazing. I am so THRILLED with how it turned out. Teddy and I designed it and we were both so happy with the end result. I’m told it tasted awesome as well. I was so busy, I didn’t grab a piece! As you can see, Reagan got to one of the blue frosted cupcakes with her fingers, before the party even started. :) We did 1 dozen vanilla cupcakes because Reagan requested demanded them. :) The cake was chocolate with chocolate frosting.

We ordered tables and chairs for the party. The place where we rented the jumpy, offered kid-sized tables and chairs! They were so adorable and the perfect size! The teeny chairs were too cute and came in red and blue which was perfect for our theme. I ended up using red and yellow plastic tablecloths with a wrapping paper runner. I had giant balloons for each table, but even with weights inside the tins, we still lost a balloon and tin into the sky before the party started. The wind was pretty crazy that day.I’ll take wind over rain on a party day though!

Teddy's 6th Superhero Bash // Fancy Ashley

Each place sitting had a napkin, plate, bamboo fork, water, mini crayons and a MASK to color and decorate. The kids all seemed to enjoy creating their own masks!

Teddy’s 6th Superhero Party

Our baby boy, Teddy, turned 6 on January 31st!

We had a big superhero bash to celebrate! This party was seriously a blast and totally stress free. Fun was had by all! Fun fact: The weather called for rain the whole week before the party. I completely stressed out because it was an outdoor party. We had rented a jumpy, tables, etc and the thought of having a bunch of kids inside the house on a rainy day completely spazzed me out. I told Teddy that I was worried. So, he said to me “mom! don’t worry! I prayed to God to cancel the rain! It won’t rain on the party!” Sure enough, two days prior, the forecast changed and it was supposed to rain that night instead of during the day. Praise the Lord for answered prayers and cancelled rain. A couple days later he prayed for God to put boy and girl twins in my tummy. Ha!

Because there were so many photos that I loved from his party, today, I will be sharing some of my fave photos from the party and tomorrow, I will be back with all the party details! Grab a cup of coffee or a mimosa and enjoy!

One of Teddy’s requests was that everyone come dressed as their favorite superhero. We weren’t sure if everyone had a costume, so it was obviously not mandatory, but a lot of the kids came dressed as their fave hero and it was so fun. He loved seeing all his buddies dressed up!

Batman was ready for the party to begin at 9:00 am.

Teddy's 6th Superhero Bash // Fancy Ashley

Wonder Woman was pretty excited as well. She had a tough time keeping her hands off the cake. Those mini m&ms are so tempting…

Teddy's 6th Superhero Bash // Fancy Ashley

Teddy was in awe of everything. He loved all the details and he loved the cake so much. The two of us designed it and we were THRILLED with how it turned out. How could a chocolate cake rolled in mini m&ms not be fabulous?! Fun fact: he had originally requested “a cake with 4 pieces” aka a 4 tiered cake. I couldn’t help but laugh and wonder if he had been perusing Pinterest. Ha! Oh to be a kid again. We decided on 2 tiers as a compromise. Ha!

Reagan requested demanded that I order vanilla cupcakes as well. She throughly enjoyed her cupcake with BLUE frosting. Clearly.

Teddy's 6th Superhero Bash // Fancy Ashley

Every single time we have a piñata at a party, I forget to bring them out. Thankfully Teddy reminded me and it was a huge hit (no pun intended). He loved it! So did all the friends! It got broken pretty quickly, so we had to give a few more turns once the candy was all cleaned up. :)

All in all, the Tedster had the best birthday. All day he kept saying “this is the best day ever!”

That morning when he woke up to presents, coffee cake (Sara Lee is his fave) and eggs, he walked over to me and said “I’m just so happy! I have a tear!” He learned about happy tears that day. :) I could not be happier with how this party turned out. It was truly one of my favorite parties ever and I’m so thrilled that our little guy loved it so much! That is the most important part!

Cheers to 6 years!!!
