Join Me on

Hey all, I’m taking the time to write a special weekend post to let you all take advantage of my open invite to

Fab is my favorite daily deal site and I’ve even featured some of Fab’s deals in our hope chest before. These deals on Fab are really amazing and even when they’re out of my price range, I’m always inspired by the creativity and the good design. It’s a great site for people interested in home design and if you read this blog, I bet you fall into that category. It’s also a pretty good way to get some luxury accessories or even furniture without paying full retail for them. And, the deals last for about 72 hours when they start so you have a little bit of time to consider your purchase … if an item doesn’t sell out.

If you join by visiting, you’ll start with a $10 credit to your account! Hurry up though, the link is only good until 11 a.m. tomorrow morning!

Hope to hear you’ve joined! Have a great weekend!

I really love her work and her blog posts. Also we share a birthday month and are the same age, so that’s cool.

My older sister, Abby, just turned 30! She’s such an amazing sister and friend. Her husband called me about a month before her birthday and wanted to throw her a surprise party. So, I got to thinking about decorations. We wanted to make it colorful because we were having it out at my grandparent’s land in the country. My grandpa has labored over a man-made tank, built his own pier, and an entertaining area. It’s really amazing what that man has done with his land. It’s beautiful, really.

We decided on balloons, and I really wanted to do these zig-zag streamers and these photo booth accessories to add to the color and fun. Jordan Ferney, party planner and blogger extraordinaire over at Oh Happy Day, has some of the most awesome free ideas! I loved the streamers. My younger sister and her husband hung each one up individually on a ladder!

My niece and nephew, ahem, Batman and Bunny. They're awesome.

My sis and her hubby.

These added so much fun to the party! They are just so cute and look great in photos!

Happy Happy Happy Birthday to my wonderful sister!!!

*****Also, Jordan of Oh Happy Day lives in Paris and is giving away a FREE trip for two people in the continental U.S. You can enter here, and well…you should!****
