Is this real life? Is my kiddo three years old? Is he running like a mad man, talking in full sentences, and acting like a grown up on occasion? Yeah, I think so. Let me go cry my eyes out for a minute. I’ll be right back…
If you don’t know Maddax personally, I’ll let you in on a little secret: he LOVES donuts. I mean, who doesn’t? But this kid will ask me every morning, without fail, if he can have one. Mind you, we have only stopped for donuts ONE time before. This is not a recurring occasion for our family, and he has really only had them a hand full of times in his life. But I guess the sugary crack of that sweet glazed dough ring has hooked him, as it has hooked the world for generations.
Thus, Dax’s Donut Shoppe was born.
Stop scrolling if you want to hear how I made the cake…
Deriving inspiration from this super pretty sprinkle cake I set out to find some blue and green sprinkles, which was actually harder than I thought. Enter etsy. Simply Baking Supplies can pretty much make any combination of colors you could ever want, and they are affordable and super great!
This cake cost us less than $10. Local bakeries (the grocery store kind) are seriously so great. I ordered a white whipped frosted cake ($5) and had them sprinkle the goods around the borders prior to pickup. Easy peasy.

Because I love you’re guts, I made you these desktop and iPhone backgrounds just in time for Valentine’s Day.
Also, if you haven’t checked out Valerie McKeehan’s The Complete Book of Chalk Lettering you probably should. It’s full of images and info to teach you all you need to know about chalk lettering. Seriously, go buy it. Then go to the dollar spot at Target and snag a couple super cheap chalkboards and get lettering!

Last weekend our baby boy Maddax turned TWO! I just can’t believe it’s been two years since he was born. He has brought so much joy and laughter into our lives, and we loved being able to celebrate that with our sweet friends and family. We planned a fun tractor and truck themed birthday bash. This kid LOVES all things with wheels: tractors, trucks, trains, cars. Every time we drive anywhere, he points out any type of manly vehicle. By yelling at the top of his lungs. So this year I took this fun theme and ran with it. I hope you dig it!
Want to use this theme for your lil one? Check my etsy shop for custom party listings or email me directly at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also, be sure to check out Maddax’s first birthday bash HERE.

My beautiful friend Julie of Victoria Drive has been doodling and hand lettering for as long as I can remember. Her shop and instagram are a constant source of inspiration for me, so I was beyond excited to partner with her on some lovely desktop and iPhone wallpapers this month. Grab one of her beautiful goodies below and share with your friends!
