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.

Someone Please Call 911!

Last week we were awaken at 5AM to the sound of our home alarm going off. Coupled with what we thought was someone trying to kick our door in. I dialed 911 and we waited... during that time my mind would race a mile a minute. I knew I had to keep calm because my children were watching me. Yet nothing inside of me was calm.

Scandal + Wine = Gladiator

Calling all Gladiators, Scandal returns tomorrow.  I can't wait for the suspense, the fashion, and the romance. Kerry Washington has had her baby girl so there won't be any crazy lamp placements to hide her bump. Where is Olivia Pope? What is the deal with her and Jake? Is Harrison gone? Where is her Mom? Where is her Dad? What is the status of the White House?

Capitol Bacon Festival #CBF2014

Now this is what dreams are made of; bacon, bacon, bacon, BACON! My bestie Bri sent me a link to the Capitol Bacon Festival asking me if I was down. Um heck yeah, bacon makes everything better. I've never been to a bacon festival and I didn't know what to expect but we had a blast. One block away from here is the Vegan Fest, for whatever reason that makes me giggle like a school girl. Perfect timing right? Totally!
The National's baseball team had a home game, and the Vegan Fest and the Capitol Bacon Fest were also on the same block. The limited parking was extra limited. I rode around several times but finally lucked up on this cute couple coming out. GLO-RAY! The lady got out and gave me their parking ticket which was good for 2 more hours. PRAISE BREAK! I gave them gracious thanks and waited for them to pull out of the parking spot. I didn't ask but I bet they were coming from the Vegan Fest. hahahahaha
