Star Wars + Ballerinas -- Ryder turns FIVE -- Blake turns THREE

We had so much fun throwing the first joint birthday party for the kids in our new backyard. I can see us having lots of parties back here with our friends and family. :)

This year Ryder chose a Star Wars theme. His table is so cool! I love it so much. This kid loves to celebrate and is always so happy. (Insert ugly mom cry) Blake really wanted a ballerina party and that was such a blast to create. I'll soak in alllll the girly things!

There are a lot of photos posted in this blog, but there are so many wonderful and adorable details from their individual tables! I worked with Mandy from One Fine Party once again to create the coolest custom birthday party themes for the kiddies. Mandy also has loads of other fun ideas on her Etsy site. Her ideas make your party planning so easy and cute! I highly recommend working with her. She is lovely and I've always been so, so impressed with her work. She's a gem!
From Mandy at One Fine Party:
Party favor boxes, treat toppers (Oreos), sucker stickers, cupcake toppers, cake topper, birthday banner.
White table cloth, black and white stripe runner, black garland, cupcake stand.
Cake and cupcakes from Target bakery.
Ryder's custom birthday tee is from Etsy!
From Mandy at One Fine Party:
Birthday banner, custom straws, cupcake toppers, cake topper, treat toppers (frosted animal crackers), stickers on party favor tins, stickers on suckers, "tiny dancer" garland.
Suckers, clear paint can tins for party favors, sparkle table cloth and Blakely's dress.
Blakes birthday hat is from Etsy!
Someone got her fingers in the cake before we could even take a pic! Haha. Stinker!
We also had a bouncy castle that was a blasty for the kids! I never got in (boo for wearing a dress haha) but the company made this super easy for us. We never even saw them. It was set up and taken down without bothering us at all.

Thank you to Mandy from One Fine Party for all your creative genius and helping me put this party together for my kiddies!

Gift Idea -or- Treat Yo-Self

I am so excited to tell you guys all about IncrediBundles! This is a game changer for moms. And a great gift idea for a baby shower! I so wish I had known about this sooner in the crazy months of managing a newborn and toddler. Moms need all the help they can get! And have I mentioned how much I love the "easy button" in life? Haha. There needs to be an easy button for everything, but especially for moms because we are juggling one million things at a time!

IncrediBundles is a wonderful "easy button" for moms -- it's so user-friendly. It is a diaper and wipe subscription. This is so much more than diapers just being delivered to your front door. The subscription box is delivered in the cutest packaging along with the softest bear (that Blakely is in love wtih). 

IncrediBundles has more than just diaper and wipe bundles! They offer sleep bundles, book bundles and bath bundles. Talk about a mom score!

Here's how it works:

Step One:
Choose the length of the subscription you would like (for yourself or maybe you're buying a 3-month subscription for a gift), they offer three month, six month, nine month and 12 month diaper subscriptions.

Step Two:
The IncrediBundles diaper subscription recipient will receive an announcement package (like in photos) with a gift certificate to order and a plush teddy bear. :) They make life so easy and gift-giving so adorable and fun!

Step Three:
The person who received the gift box will then be able to get online with their specific code and choose the brand and size of diapers. IncrediBundles offers Pampers, Huggies, Luvs and Members Mark Diapers! Once ordered, they selection will be delivered to their front door!

Head over to today to get started!

BUT, that's not it! I happy to partner with them to GIVEAWAY a three month diaper subscription! Head over to my Instagram to see how to enter the giveaway: @whatsup_buttarcup

*Giveaway open to US residents only. 
Giveaway will close on July 24th and the winner will be announced on my Instagram page (on the picture announcing the giveaway). 

Good luck! And a special thank you to IncrediBundles for spoiling one of my readers with this amazing gift!

Nordstrom Anniversary SALE!!

Hey guys! The Nordstrom Anniversary Sale started yesterday and, well -- oops!
Sorry husband!! :):)
You can read my blog post from last year to see how to get a Nordstrom card and WHY the sale is such a great time to stock up on new items for the fall and winter (the sale is only open to card holders now - opens to public on July 20th).

Here are my favorites in the sale this year! It's soo good this year. I can't wait to get my goodies in the mail! :) ALL of these are items I can mix and match and wear on a daily basis. I tried to stick with things I will get a lot of use out of -- instead of shopping the cute dresses and blouses (because I don't wear these items often enough!)

Hope this helps you find some favorites! Snag them before they sell out - items go quick. :)
Happy shopping!
