Sofia The First Birthday Party Ideas

0

Anyone with girls know that princesses are the coolest EVER! Baby O’s is obsessed with Sofia the First, so we decided to throw her a princess party. I know some people think first birthday parties are lame and pointless especially because the guest of honor won’t remember a damn thing about it, but this is about celebrating a whole year of firsts with this new little person, and their mom and dad’s deserve a party – and a few celebratory cocktails, if you ask me! After the first birthday we just do small family celebrations or take the kids to Disney…

DIY Ball Pit

0

This super simple DIY ball pit is great to keep those kids of yours out of your hair for a bit, especially when the weather starts turning cold or rainy! Since summer is long gone (tear :-(), hit the clearance aisle at the stores and pick up an inflatable kiddie pool, about 10 pool noodles and grab your scissor. You can make a quick and painless pool noodle ball pit in less than 15 minutes. I saw this DIY ball pit idea online somewhere (probably one of my million scrolls through Pinterest) and decided to make one for Baby O’s…

How To: Feng Shui Your Workspace

0

My husband runs his own company out of our third bedroom and I’ve tried making it feel more like his own space than just a room with a desk and a bed. Problem is, we don’t have a lot of space to work with, so it quickly turns into a catchall room. The poor guy spends 10-12 hours a day in this place and I go in for 5 minutes and I feel claustrophobic and overwhelmed. God knows how he gets anything accomplished. I am a firm believer in if your space is organized, so is your mind. If it’s…

Party Foul: Bean Bag Toss Pinterest Fail

0

Pinterest is probably one of my favorite procrastinating sites. I have a million things to do but I need to go pin 50 recipes that I may never make. I especially love it when I am doing some party planning. Baby O’s birthday was a couple of weeks ago, and I was all over that place pinning the shit out of decorations, recipes, games, hair do’s, makeup, funny memes….I may have gotten distracted and thrown off course BUT I found some quality ideas off of it. I wanted to make sure there were tons to do for the kids, because…

alternaVites Kids – Multivitamins for Kids!

Disclaimer: I was supplied samples for review purposes only. All thoughts and opinions are my own, as always! Back to school usually means germs – LOTS of germs! The snotty noses run rampant and cold germs get passed around from one kid to the next. As my little one begins her first year of preschool, I am already having major anxiety thinking of the germs she will be bringing home to the family. As parents, we want to make sure our children have the proper protection from those pesky germs and that starts with multivitamins for kids. alternaVites Kids is…

Back to Reality!

0

So it has been well over a month that I have been on my blog maternity leave and it’s about damn time that it’s over! I gave birth to the newest diva in our family, Olivia Rose on the August 13th. She is a Leo through in through and right from the start, she made her grand entrance earlier than expected. I have missed writing and missed reading all your fabulous blogs! I am slowly getting back on my feet and it’s taking me longer than I expected. I didn’t want to believe everyone who told me having 2 kids…

Wine Review: Little Black Dress

0

Continuing with my stock of wine from my recent trip to Total Wine & More, this week’s selection is Little Black Dress.     Off the bat, this bottle won me over: adorable label, decently priced and tasted awesome. So crisp and delicious – lets just say its halfway done for a reason! Here’s what UlitimateWineShop.com had to say about it: “A nice light white wine with optimal flavor and acidity. Bright aromas of apple, pear and lemongrass followed by those of lively orange and tangerine. A balanced mouth-feel full of citrus with a touch of floral from the Viognier….

Roasted Tomato & Veggie Soup

0

I am a soup person. Love all kinds – broccoli cheese, French onion, minestrone, veggie, lentil, clam chowder – you name it. They are so easy to prepare and always a home run with the family. There was a sale on some tomatoes at Publix, so I stocked up on some and decided to try a roasted tomato soup. Perfect for the rainy, dreary day here in South Florida. This was by far one of the easiest soups to not only prepare but cooking time took just about 30 minutes! Can’t beat that….   Roasted Tomato & Veggie Soup 4-5…
