Bath bombs

Preparing for my "Sprinkle Baby Shower" I wanted to make something for the ladies as a party favor that I know it will be used. So after some research I was going to make natural lip balm then came across bath bombs that I have been wanting to try out anyways....
So after a few recipes I got the perfect consistency for the balls that came out just PERFECT!!

Recipe was actually pretty simple but each batch only made 4-5 balls...

1 cup of baking soda
1/2 cup cornstarch
1/2 citric acid ( this makes the fizz, and there are several natural options)
1/2 cup epson salts
3/4 tsp water
2 1/2 tsp melted coconut oil ( I used almost double this)
8-10 drops of essential oils of your choice
and the bath bomb molds
food coloring (optional)

First combine all dry ingredients in a bowl, then combine all the wet ingredients in another small bowl.. Combine both very slowly...
 I made them with baby blue food coloring very light..
 Then add them to the mold filling them up all the way each half then combining both of them

 Wait a couple minutes and remove one side.. then remove the other side

 Some of them cracked, but I wasn't able to tell until they were all dry.. But I added more coconut oil to the other batches and it totally made them a lot better..
 I made a total of 40 balls...

Johnny and Tyler and of course myself have all been enjoying the not so pretty balls, they smell amazing...!! I used peppermint essential oil, wild orange, aroma touch, lavender for the scents.!!

Now I have the molds and I think these will make very cute and useful gifts for any girl!!!!

Tyler is 4

Wow I can't even believe my little man is 4 years old, its so crazy to me.. Well he loves legos or I should say loves lego people.. So he had a LEGO birthday and it was super cute. I borrowed a few things from Valerie which were great and together we made a few of the other decorations.
I got lego molds and made lego lollipops, lego crayons, lego people crayon for the goodie bags. Super cute and fun to make!! The lego cake looked and tasted amazing, Julie really makes the best cakes!!! Everyone loved the cake and I was so surprised to ate the whole thing. I did almost have a heart attack after getting the cake from her because she didn't have a box big enough for the cake and I was driving alone with Tyler.. So I got flipped off, honked at ...oh well the cake made it home in one piece and thats what counts!!!

Ps. I really need a flash for my camera the pictures I take inside aren't always the best!
I didn't take as many pictures as I wanted but it gets so busy for me I'm doing a million things and i try my best but... Next party I'm handing out disposable cameras lol

Gender reveal

Gosh I have been such a slacker lately or maybe the past year and not posting anything. We have  been busy with work, chasing a 3 year old and the business..
We had a gender reveal, a very small get together with family members. The cake was amazing, so delicious and so so pretty. Julie did a really good job. Im sure I will be using her for our next parties, maybe even Tylers birthday coming up... Here's a link for her  Cake and facebook site..
It was fun spending some time with some of our family members and sharing this special moment. My mom and dad, my sister, brother in law and their kids, Jenn, Jake and Bruce came to celebrate with us!!

We are having another boy and johnny can't wait for them to share a room and have bunk beds, haha that wont be a while from now...









I had a few of the kids choose pink or blue.. 






 Benny was so close to the cake and really wanted it to be BLUE!!!

 Tylers excitement and face was the best part!!! I think either way he would've been excited because everyone was screaming and anxious to see what color was inside. It made it much more exciting since johnny and I also had no idea what we are expecting.



And.. we are expecting another baby BOY!!!!!!!
