Since my brother-in-law is also in the Air Force we are celebrating by doing the shower in red, white, and blue! I whipped up this Mason Jar Flag set and I'm sharing it just in time for Labor Day! I know I've seen these around blogland and I've wanted to make them for awhile! This was a perfect excuse to tackle the … [Continue reading...]

Our Trip to New York {The Places We Ate}

Alright, I've talked about The Basics of our trip and I've talked about all The Places We Went. Now it's time to share all the places we ate on our trip to New York City.
