Pool Noodle Ideas ~ Good Ideas!

Pool noodles are a great invention!  Personally, I love using them with the kids when we snorkel.  It makes it so much easier to navigate the waters and then we can float and chat at the same time!  Take a look at the extreme creativity used with pool noodles on the post at Design Dazzle.  Maybe you'll find something fun to do at your house this summer...with a pool noodle!

Today Only ~ FREE Photo Book from RitzPix.com

I love photo books!  They are SO much easier than scrapbooking, they last longer, and frankly, I think they are cuter too!  When I saw that we could get a free one today from RitzPix.com, I had to share.  Take a minute and upload your photos from spring sports, a birthday, or just everyday life and make a cute memory book for your family.

Cute Silhouette Ideas

When we were in Paris a few years ago, a street artist did cut out silhouettes of each of our boys.  I have loved them, and am always looking for fun ways to incorporate silhouettes in decorating, design or party ideas.  I especially love using them as invitations!  Here are some ideas:

A Modern Silhouette Party from The Well-Heeled Hostess

Custom silhouettes from Pretty Faces on etsy.com

Darling silhouette pillows

One of my favorite wedding shower invitations from finestationery.com

Good Costumes ~ Great Prices!

One of the shopping sites I like to go to is 6pm.com.  It's the outlet site of Zappos.com and has great merchandise at good prices.  *When shopping online, always go through shortcuts.com in order to get cash back on your purchases!  I love when I get that check in the mail!*

As I was looking for swimsuits for the boys, I noticed that a lot of their costumes are marked way down.  I'm not thinking about Halloween yet, but I remember when the boys were younger they loved to dress up and use our Halloween costumes during playtime.  If you need costumes or dress up items, this may be a good time to check out what's available here!

Prince of Persia - $12.94 (58% off)

Anakin Skywalker Light Saber $5.94 (63% off)

Alien Robe and Mask $8.80 (56% off)
