Under the Sea Birthday Party!

Okay guys I went a little crazy on this next party, but honestly I could not help myself. My daughter turned 5 a few weeks after we learned that the gender of our baby due this year would be another boy....and since we are considering stopping our family growth at 4 kids, I had to say goodbye to the idea that she might be my only little girl. And previously my husband and I had decided that we would only throw a big birthday party and invite their friends every other year, and then have a mellow party with family at our home and get them a present instead. But then I realized that if she would be my only little girl, this MIGHT be my only chance to throw my princess a princess themed party while she is young enough to think mermaids and the color pink is cool. Soooo maybe it was a way of me dealing with my grief of loosing the "perfect family" image I had created in my mind, and maybe it was more for me than for her, but WHO CARES! I did it anyways, and I loved every second of it, and she felt like a real princess on her special birthday.

Beginners Guide to a Superbowl Party

January playoffs are well under way and I felt like there was no better time to create this post than a few weeks before the 50th annual Superbowl on February 7th, 2016. The first Superbowl party that I hosted was in 2014 when our Seattle Seahawks played against the Denver Broncos which happened to be my brother-in-law's team as well. And since both brothers had their teams going against each other, I decided it was a good enough reason to throw a party.
