Masons 5th Birthday Party

Our little Mason is now 5 years old, well technically 5 years and 2 months! Haha I can't ever seem to do these on time, the summer months are so busy, but I am finally getting around to it so lets dig right on in!

We honestly can't believe our special boy is 5, which not only means that he's a year older but that he's going into kindergarten this year which I am not ready for, but lets talk about the great things mason has learned and loves in this year of growth!

  • He's learned how to ride his bike with no training wheels
  • Favorite color is green
  • Still loves all things marvel super hero's but also loves pokemon
  • Made 4/5 goals in one soccer game (big moment for him) so proud!
  • He can count from 1-20
  • He is the kindest boy 
  • Such a goof ball
  • Absolutely loves kindergarten 
  • Is the best big brother 
  • Loves sushi as usual
  • Can do back flips
  • Loves playing with legos 
  • And so much more!
This year Mason wanted a Lego superhero birthday party so I got my creative juices out and designed this cute adorable birthday party for him! I shopped different sites mostly Amazon and Oriental trading. I love the small details like the little Lego themed silverware and the lego head cups! He was completely surprised! Another favorite was his balloon arch done by, . It is run by a fabulous women who has her daughter assist her as well! She was so professional and also so friendly to all of us! The end result turned out so beautiful and honestly I am going to hire her for every birthday because balloon arches are not easy (and I’ve tried) . She is located here in Utah so if you ever need a fabulous , affordable , and someone who will make your party dreams come to life, give her a call/message her, you won’t regret it!

I also took it upon myself to make him a piñata , I couldn’t find a Lego ninja piñata that didn’t cost a arm and a lego so I thought why not make one myself. We used some recycled cardboard and tissue paper and a small print from the internet and that was it, it was so much fun! A bunch of masons friends came and they all had a blast eating, playing, piñata breaking, and playing on masons new present (technically it was half masons half Isabella birthday gift) but they were both so happy to have a playground in the backyard and we love it everyday! We loved seeing everyone who loves and care for him there, and felt the love as well from family that lives far away as well! 

We love our little but not so little 5 year old mason boy! He’s so smart and  the friendliest boy you’ll ever meet! He’s got such a big heart and everyday we are so grateful he’s ours ! We love you so much buddy and we can’t wait to see what being 5 brings you , what you learn, the lives you touch, and the growth you do!

Favorite Cute & Modest Swim Suit Guide

 It's that time of year ago that the sun starts shining more and stays with us longer into the night; we've had an okay winter, there was barely any snow and if there's not snow, it isn't much fun anymore, or at least that's what I think. So I've been ready for the warmth for some time now! After 4 years of the the same 2 swimsuits, it's time to retire the old ones and shop for the next couple of swimsuits! So I thought it would be perfect to share some of my favorite shops where I love looking for new cute and modest swimsuits, with all of you!

New year, New you, feel confident with Woosh Beauty

 Anyone else feel hopeful and excited for this new year? I love that as the new year start that's it allows us to start over, to make goals, and to improve ourselves whether that physically or mentally. I have loved playing with makeup since I could remember watching my mom put her's on when I was little. Makeup is so much fun to play with and I love finding out about new companies and products that will be added into my day to day routine... bonus points if it makes my life easier in any way. So I was thrilled when I found out about Woosh Beauty products, especially their fold out face palette! Let me say GAME CHANGER!

I love how compact it is, how it has everything I need to complete a full face of make up! It has your eye shadow, eye liner, blush, foundation, powder, concealer, and contour! Again all you could ever need! I am the shade medium light and it matches up shades for cheeks and eyes that perfectly compliment your skin tone. In my palette I also had a helpful sheet with easy instructions on how to blend and apply my makeup for a beautiful glowing look! I have finally started contouring again and it's all thanks to Woosh Beauty!

They don't just offer their travel go to fold out face palette, but also have brushes that you have two ends and even lip gloss! I completed my look below with their beige frosted lip gloss, and I love that their lip gloss is not sticky and that this shade can be worn anytime of the year! I am loving the shine !! They also sell mascara, mascara tool for mess free application, eye stencils, and a mirror! Not to mention they have different size bundles you can get; ones for just eyes, traveling, and or looks perfect for the holidays! 

I seriously love my fold out face palette and have used it every single day ever since I got mine!
