Ellie’s Bear Bash

Our baby girl is one! We had the most amazing time celebrating with our friends and family. She was so loved. I love planning parties, I just think it is so fun and to see it all come together is my favorite. And then the party is over and while the decorations are gone the memories will always be cherished.

There wasn't a more fitting party then a Rainbow Bear Bash for our rainbow baby. She loves her Care Bears and being our rainbow baby it was a perfect fit. We kept it very simple. She brought all the cheer to the party we needed.

She was a sassy little thing at the party. Her two favorite gifts when opening were her rainbow dog and her jewelry. A girl after my own heart.

We are just so grateful for all the help and the love that everyone came to the party with. Truly nothing means more to use than having people love our children. It is something really special to find people that have true and genuine respect and love for your kids. I'd say we have done a great job of surrounding them with a group of amazing people.

Mocktails with Ocean Spray®︎

This post is sponsored by Ocean Spray®︎ Mocktails.

I am super excited to share with you three ways I love to have my mommy mocktails! Ocean Spray®︎ offers three delicious non-alcoholic options inspired by some favorite cocktails! They are perfect for the beach or any get together this summer. Super refreshing and they taste amazing!

I am a pretty simple girl. With three kids, making a fancy drink is the last thing on my mind. Ocean Spray®︎ makes it easy with their line of Mocktails. You can pour straight from the bottle and enjoy with just ice! I especially love the Tropical Citrus Paradise served over ice. 

I am a bubbly girl though. I love the crisp taste they bring to any drink. You can mix any sparkling water or soda in with your Mocktail! The Cranberry Peach Bellini was so good mixed with a dash of lemon lime soda!

Now this one may have been the favorite. My kids love popsicles, what kid doesn’t, so we always have plenty on hand. I took a very berry popsicle in a glass and poured the Cranberry Sangria over it. I would be lying if I said I didn’t catch the boys drinking basically the whole thing! 

There are so many options to make these Mocktails your own. They make me feel all sorts of fabulous mommy and I love that I don’t have to worry about my kids sneaking from my drink! I know that summer can be especially hectic with the kids out of school or whether you are a new or expecting mom, we all need some time to unwind and refill our mama tanks!
