DIY: Bridal Shower Games

My soon-to-be sister-in-law's bridal shower in in a few weeks and since we will be going on vacation with our husband's (soon-to-be husband's) family, I needed to make these bridal shower games asap! 
So, the bridal party decided to do these two games:
Bridal shower Bingo 
He said...She said

I made both of these games in Microsoft Word!
For the HE SAID..SHE SAID, I used text boxes with free downloaded fonts!
And then added the lips and mustache and mason jar pictures to them.
For the Bridal Shower Bingo, I used the square image to make the boxes.
Then added text boxes and the mason jar pictures.
Since the theme is rustic/country we decided on the mason jar theme!

They are very easy to make and once I learn how to allow you guys to download these I will put them on! But, until then you can practice making them on your own! 

Good luck!
And Happy Friday! :)

My first Influenster VOX BOX!

I joined influenster back in April of this year, where I answered surveys and questions about products and wrote reviews about the ones I had already used! I was contacted the end of May to take a survey for the Spring Fling VoxBox, but then was qualified for the something blue voxbox! I later found out that it was for people who were attending weddings this summer. And, as you may know I have already attended one and have another this September! I was so excited, I mean who doesn't love getting free stuff in the mail! 
This is what I got:
Something Blue Vox Box

It contains:

1) Luster NOW! Instant Whitening toothpaste
2) Dr. Scholls for her ball of foot
3) Ever E-Z Eye lashes (2)
4) Precision Q-Tips (2)
5) Critical Care Aspirin to-go

I have only tried two of the products so far.
The toothpaste (which I absolutely LOVE), it has a minty flavor unlike the other whitening tooth paste that I have tried, and you can see a difference in the first brush. And also I have tried the Q-Tips, which I think would be really good if your using liquid eye liner for the upper top on your lid to get in there without smudging, but as for anything else I think a normal Q-Tip would work just as well. I am saving the Eye Lashes for either the bridal shower or my husband's homecoming (you can find the review when I use them). Also, waiting to use the Dr. Scholl's for the wedding day! My feet are going to hurt wearing boots all day in September! Lastly, the aspirin I will let my husband use because I don't really use aspirin much!!

If you ever get a chance go sign up!
 It is so simple and I mean FREE STUFF!!
Come on, get up and go do it! 

The products were sent to me for testing propose by Influenster. 

Enjoy the rest of your Wednesday!!

Target Tuesday!!! (plus weekend update!)

Whether you are graduating from high school/college, having a bridal shower or baby shower or just plain having a BBQ, Target has the perfect dresses for every occasion!
We all know that summer is the perfect time to wear dresses and it is also the months of weddings and baby showers. Which I have been to one wedding already, I have my soon-to-be sister-in-laws shower in July, my best friends baby shower in September and the brother in law & sister in law's wedding in September too! Just call me busy! 
So, I have put together a few of the dresses that I really adore from Target, and let me tell you it was very difficult to choose just FIVE! I'm really liking the color yellow right now, its the color of the sun, makes everything more summery! 

one - two - three - four - five

These dresses are all flow-y! They are great for the summer heat! Perfect for the student who needs a simple dress that won't make her sweat under near her cap and gown or (like me) the yellow dress is perfect for a country themed bridal shower where I can wear my brown cowboy boots too! Or Maxi dresses are great for the momma's to be, giving enough length and showing off their cute belly bumps! Also, the last dress I love, am in love with it, as you know my hubby is in the coast guard and this would be ABSOLUTELY perfect for his homecoming this summer! 

Which occasion do you have to attend? 
Find your perfect dress at Target! 
I know I will!!

As, for my weekend update and talking about dresses!
My best friend had her wedding reception this past Saturday! 
And it was beautiful out, no rain could have stopped that party! 

blue dress- old navy (old); similar here. white dress- kohl's; here
 I was her matron of honor and I had to give a speech. Let me just tell you have much I am VERY afraid of public speaking! I HATE IT! Like, a lot. But anyway, I pushed through it and gave a ONE page speech! It was cute though and I started the water works. WIN!  :)
Not that it's that hard with her emotional pregnancy hormones!

Bride and Groom's first dance!
Oh how sweet love is! 
And how I wish them many years of love and happiness!!

Hope you all enjoyed your weekend!! 
I also received two free products when I got home so stay tuned to those post!

We all know that Father's Day is June 16th this year! Or at least we all have an idea of when it is! I've come up with a few of the cute gifts that Target has for father's this year. Whether your the "father" is a new daddy, a "tool" guy, a groomer (aka the military man), a business man, or the outdoorsy guy, you can find that special gift for your man at Target! 

one - two - three - four - five

Simple little gifts that let the "father" know you're thinking of them. The perfect little diaper bag that you can pack with wipes, diapers and anything the new daddy to be may need! A little gift set for the business man in your life! New ties, a bag and accessories for work! A little case that contains the right tools that will help your guy fix any problem you have! Great gift that is also for you! ;) Another gift that can be used for your guy that loves the out doors, or especially fishing! And lastly, a perfect gift for the guy that loves having a clean shave, or for you military wives that have hubby's who HAVE to have a clean shave all the time! 

Whether you have a strict budget for fathers day or a very generous one, you can find a perfect gift to match your perfect guy from Target. And no, these post are not sponsored by Target.
