Ya’ll, have you seen this Cute As a Fox party from Soiree Event Design? I don’t know how Tonya comes up with these amazing party themes again, and again, and again, but she constantly delivers the goods. Woodland animal party themes are pretty popular these days (stay-tuned for Friday’s post where we highlight “W is for Woodland Animals” to get loads more ideas), and this “Cute as a Fox” party.

I’ve got two little boys hanging over my shoulders while I put together the pin board to go along with this party post, and boy are they excited about a Vintage Race Car Birthday Party. Neither of them have birthdays coming up, mind you, but that doesn’t stop them from working themselves into a full-blown craze over these awesome party pics.

Recipe of the Week: Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Chocolate Cranberry Cookies!

Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies are my absolute favorite kind of cookie. I love the chewiness of the oatmeal mixed with the chocolate chips. Sometimes I add chopped walnuts or other nuts to add a crunchy element, but now that I’ve seen this recipe from Chelsea’s Messy Apron I think from now on I’ll be including chocolate covered cranberries in my cookies, too! And this recipe looks better than the one.
