Ninja Turtle Party

Throwing parties has been in my blood since I was a young girl! I loved having parities, helping my mom throw parties, or throwing parties for my friends. And as I have become a mother I have enjoyed putting extra effort into my kids parties. The themes chosen have mostly been their own choices (which is not always my favorite) but I have made it what they want it to be!

St Patricks Day Meal

It feels like all over Pinterest during this time of year is fun things to eat, craft, or decorate for St.  Patricks Day. I always pin a million things and plan to do them with my kids but rarely does it ever happen. (Hopefully I’m not the only one) I was out of town with my kids while my husband worked the days leading up to this holiday. So when I returned home I was exhausted, had a pile of laundry to do, and was trying to pick my battles. So the unpacking and laundry was set aside to make this fun …
