2nd Annual Mother’s Day Tea

It is that time of year, the time that we honor our Mothers, Grandmother's, God Mother's and Mother figures. It is MOTHER'S DAY! It is my annual tradition to host a Tea Party. Last Year's Tea was a blast, while it was my first it turned out rather nicely. This year I had even more ideas on how to improve upon my tea party. There were a few things I wanted to incorporate this year but I had a lot going (I was taking swimming lesson) on and I didn't get to all the tiny details.  All of my guest enjoyed the set up and had a really good time. I can't wait to make it even better next year.

My 12 Days before Christmas

12/13/10: On the 12th day before Christmas my true love gave to me... FRIENDSHIP!
For some reason today I've been exceptionally emotional, which so isn't my thing. I chatted with my Godson's mother and wow. We've been friends for over 15 years.  We've grown together, apart, individually, and together again. We went from walking to the bus stop together every day in HS, to getting married around the same time, to moving around with our spouses, to now being settled in life and motherhood. We've evolved so much as individuals but have never lost our friendship. We are friends for life and that won't ever change. Friends are the sisters God forgot to give us.

DIY Costume “MimiMouse”

Hey Cuties,

I don't typically dress up for Halloween but this year my niece (5 years old) was having a Birthday Halloween Party. She requested everyone come dressed in costumes. I knew right away I wanted to go as Minnie Mouse but this also means I need a Mickey Mouse. We will get to that part later. In July of this year, we took our son to Disney World. You know, where the magic happens. While there I got some ears for myself and my son. You can't go without getting the ears.

The Vintage Pearl

I've been meaning to write this particular blog for some time but realized I hadn't taken the pictures that I needed to do it justice. I've finally gotten my act together and so here it is. One day back in March/April I was reading one of my favorite mommy blogs Mom2y6pack and she mentioned another mommy blog that makes jewelry. TheVintagePearl was the name and the blog was very cute but the jewelry was even better. I browsed the entire site and immediately thought this was the answer to my mom's Mother's Day gift. I love anything customized/personalized and my mom has been wanting something like this for some time. My first order was a necklace for my mother. It was two hollow circles one slightly larger than the other. On the big outer ring was mine and my sisters first name. On the inner hollow circle were the names of my niece and my son. I was pumped up about my order yet nervous at the same time. I hadn't thought of a plan b gift if this didn't work out. Rest assure I received it a few weeks later and it was a beauty. It came in a little small draw string mesh bag with a tiny silver cleaning cloth. The package was really cute and simply most importantly it was gift ready. LOVE IT!

Kindergarten Prep – Dental Visit

As we begin the early stages of getting ready for kindergarten I was on a mission to find the perfect dentist for my son. The other dentist was the only one in his practice and not available to my liking. My co-worker told me about her daughter's dentist. Neibauer Dental, I go online and I'm impressed right away. I see two Black doctors, two Asian doctors, a Middle Eastern doctor and few white doctors. My first thought it YES DIVERSITY!!! Then I see they are open seven days a week. WHO DOES THAT?!? I call the location of my choosing and the person on the other end was really friendly and had an available appointment within two days. SWEET! My 5 year old loves the dentist so I had no worries in that regard. However I was curious to see if "all that glitters is gold". We arrived a little early do all of the first time patient paperwork and wait our turn. About 10 minutes later they call us back. The young lady was really friendly and made small talk with my son. She puts him in the chair and asks him what cartoons he likes.
