NYC, Motown the Musical & 60

October kicks of a heavy birthday season in my immediate family. This year we've had three monumental birthdays in a month's time. Can you see my money blowing in the wind? I turned 35 in October and my family gave me the best surprise birthday party ever. A month later my first born turned 10 and we gave him a Minecraft birthday party. Three days later my Mommy turned 60. Well we had to "turn up" just the same for her. My sister and I decided to whisk Mommy away to NYC for two days and see Motown on Broadway. Mommy loves the oldies and so do I.

DIY Minecraft Party

Hello DIY Minecraft Party, all my now 10 year old son talks about is Minecraft. He would watch Minecraft How To Videos on YouTube for hours if we allowed him. I must admit I've never played the game and until I decided to make it the theme for his 10th birthday party, I didn't know much about the game. It's like the digital version of Lego's but it has more of a Nintendo pixel like design.

Since I was unfamiliar with the game I had research to do in order to pull this off. I also consulted my son on my findings to make sure I was accurately representing. His image is on the line apparently and I'm bucking for Best Mom ever. This is what I came up with.

First Time Mom – 10th Anniversary

I was 24, I was a girls girls. I was out partying five days a week. I'm talking life of the party, if the doors were open I was there. I had a job I liked, I made pretty good money, and I had a little car and a new apartment. Life was moving fast... I had been single for the first time in my adult life for two years. I was living it up and all about making up for lost time. I met this little cutie pie and I started spending a lot of my time with him. Little by little I was spending less time being the footloose and fancy free party girl and getting to know this cutie. As life would have it this cutie pie and I would collaborate on one of my greatest projects to date. On, Wednesday, November 17, 2004 we would welcome our son, Nasir Robinson to the world. I was a first time mom, now what?

Easy DIY Superhero Cape

Last weekend I took full advantage of our first cold weekend in the DC area. We turned on the heat, laid around the house and I finished up a few of many craft projects I've started and abandoned. Story of my life.

One of my first projects was to finish the kids Superhero Capes. (Easy DIY Superhero Cape) My children are typical and think they can fly and save the world. Well you can't walk around with all of these super powers and have no cape to show for it. So here we are. You can do the no sew version or you can sew if you are feeling fancy. Either way the required skill Level is low.
