As Mother’s day quickly approaches I wanted to put together some cute gift ideas, for all the mom’s out there. Now that I am a mom myself, mother’s day has taking on a whole new meaning. Typically I would love to do a bunch of fun things with my family on that day, but this year all I truly want is a long, and relaxing… nap. 🙂 I know I am not alone with this, I think all the mommies out there know how valuable sleep becomes after you have a children. So any added gifts that day will be icing on the cake.
In my little gift guide, I included some sentimental pieces, as well as some fun girlie gift ideas. I included my favorites from makeup, perfume, and an engravable charm that I bought for both my mother and mother in-law. I’m also very partial to the James Avery initial ring because I have it with my daughter’s initial “M” and I wear it everyday. 🙂

For today’s mommy post, I put together an outfit of the day (OOTD) with my little model, Madeline. I love that this is a simple mix of neutrals and perfect for this crazy Texas weather we are having. It’s affordable and comfortable, which is always a plus for this crazy two year old stage. 🙂
Check out the links below to the exact pieces or very similar ones.

It’s never easy throwing a party together but I will say it is quite fun in the end and well worth it. Our little Maddie turned two today and had a great time at her party this weekend with family and firends. I wanted to share her cupcake cake that was an absolute hit. It was super yummy, easy to make, and very cute. It fit the theme of her gold and pink princess party.
What I used:
2 Rich & Creamy Cream Cheese Icing tubs (Betty Crocker)
Red gel food coloring
Super Moist French Vanilla cake mix (Betty Crocker)
White Cake Pearls (I got these at Hobby Lobby)
Recipe makes 48 cupcakes but I made my cupcakes a little fuller so I ended up making about 40 (so I had a couple extra)
1 tub add 2 drops of red
1 tub add 3 drops of red
(Then use the cupcakes that are a little darker pink at the bottom to create a little ombre effect for the dress)
1.Following the cake recipes exactly.
2. Let your cupcakes cool and then add your icing. I put mine in a Ziploc bag with the edge cut off to make it easier to apply the icing.
3.Then sprinkle little white cake pearls on all the cupcakes.
4. Arrange your cupcakes like a dress and then add your tiara and jewels
( I got these at Hobby Lobby as well)
I also wanted to give a shout out to the Etsy store
that I used for Maddie’s invites. They turned out super cute and I got them within 24 hours. I highly recommend them and I know I’ll use them again. 🙂
