Happy New Year : MimiCutelips 2015 Year in Review

Hey Cuties,

We are down to the last day of 2015, Happy New Year! I appreciate you for rocking with me. I hope I've shared something that connected with you one way or another.  I read all your comments and I try to reply to each of them. I don't take your time for granted, you could be anywhere in the world but I appreciate that you come here to chat with me. This year has been major in a rather low key kind of way. Sometimes it takes some reflecting to realize just how far you've come. That applies across the board in life, when we are in the thick of things it's hard to realize the how far we've come. 2015 was a year of preparation for me and let me tell you MIMICUTELIPS IS READY HONEY!

Chocolate Peppermint Pretzels & Spoons

Hey Cuties,

We survived Christmas, I hope it was time well spent doing whatever you did/didn't want to do. We opened gifts and all of that at home. This year we utilized technology and used FaceTime with my sister so she could see my kids open their gifts. On Babe's phone we used Google Hangout so my Mom could also watch. Full Disclosure they both live within five minutes of us. hahaha Later that evening we went to my in laws for dinner, my Mom and sister also joined us.

Christmas in New York

Hey Cuties,

How was the weekend? Are you still shopping, just starting or flat out over the holidays? Have you put in your vacation leave for the rest of the year? I'm counting down my last few days in the office until the New Year. Last week I hit up New York to check out some eats, shopping and the beautiful holiday decor. I typically go in the warmer months but the holiday decor is really something to experience.

Kiss Mas Tree {Easy DIY}

Hey Cuties,

I'm in full on Holiday mode. I'm talking shopping; crafting and I plan to decorate this weekend. I came up with a fun craft to do with the kids to kick off our official holiday season. This is a fun one to do with the kids, you can give it as a gift or you can use it for table decor. I mean what is Christmas without some kisses? Plus #FatSnacks, you already know.

Miami #FatSnacks

Hey Cuties,

I'm back talking about one of my absolute loves #FatSnacks. Food, grub, la comida, aliments, sustenance, provisions, rations, three hots whatever you call it. Food is very near and dear to my heart as I frequently talk about it on the blog. In particular food with parents gives me the greatest job. This is part III, the final installment of the Miami series. You can catch up here Part I & Part II

Graham Cracker Pudding Cups

Hey Cuties,

I have a fun little snack to share with you. Nothing fancy, nothing sponsored just my love and adoration for #FatSnacks. This is a great treat for you and the girls or you and the family. It is really quick and easy and you can totally allow people to think you were slaving in the kitchen for hours. I strolled past the ready-made Graham crust and I had to try them.  I wasn't sure what I was going to make with them but I purchased them and let the idea come later.

Building My Empire: Blogalicious Recap Part I

Hey Cuties,

How was your weekend? Mine was very low key which I totally needed. I didn't leave home on Saturday and that just doesn't happen for me. Sunday my son had his first soccer game so we had to go out and cheer him on.  He did a great job and scored a goal; followed that up with a good Sunday dinner and the Emmy Red Carpet.  I am looking forward to a low key week thanks to the Pope coming into town and disrupting all of Washington, DC for three days.

Diner en Blanc DC

Hey Cuties, How was your weekend? I had an amazing weekend; I mean I didn't get paid as scheduled but yeah amazing.  I've been uber excited about Diner en Blanc since I saw the pictures last year. How could such fab-ness take place in my city and I not know about it. Well that wasn't going to happen twice. I'm all about getting dressed in all white and dragging a table and chairs around to a secret location. Umm yes, sign me up.
