Freak Show Circus Theme First Birthday for Baby K

Freak Show Circus Theme First Birthday……

My Baby Boy recently turned one and while I was drawn to the adorable circus and carnival themed parties I saw online, they just lacked that pizzazz I wanted for my birthday boy.  Especially because I had to live up to the Great Gatsby Themed First Birthday we threw for his big sister!  I knew I wanted something masculine yet cute, but also unique and maybe even a bit edgy.  I brainstormed our favorite travel locations and my mind was instantly drawn to Coney Island with its delicious hot dogs and ice cream and, of course, the Barnum & Bailey Greatest Show on Earth.  And thus was born Baby K’s Freak Show Circus themed first birthday party…

Meghan, Kate: Royal Wedding Jealousy

Meghan Kate: Royal Wedding Jealousy…You’re probably expecting me to say that I bet Kate Middleton is jealous of Meghan Markle: her public speaking abilities, her confidence, her sex appeal, her beauty, her sparkle in the spotlight.  Or maybe you think I’m going to say that I bet Meghan Markle is jealous of Kate Middleton: her position in the royal family, her beautiful children, her ability to bounce back to her pre-pregnancy body, her impeccable fashion sense, her poise and elegance…but I have something else to say…

Versatile Blogger Award and Seven Things About Me

Versatile Blogger Award and Seven Things About Me…I am very honoured to say that I have been nominated for the Versatile Blogger Award!  How cool!  I was nominated by Quirky Kay and to accept the award I’m supposed to write seven things about myself that perhaps you didn’t know and nominate a bunch of other blogs.  I wasn’t going to accept the nomination because it reminded me of those emails you got in high school telling you to pass it on or you’d have bad luck (which I never ever passed on…so I must be cursed).  But,  this type of post is not one I typically do and I thought it was a neat idea, so here it goes…

Potty Training a Two Year Old Girl

Potty Training a Two Year Old Girl…We just potty trained our toddler girl in one week.  She was showing lots of signs of readiness, like absolutely hating having a wet cloth diaper and telling us whenever she was going pee, so we figured it was time.  We barricaded ourselves in the house with lots of paper towel and laundry detergent and got it done.  It actually wasn’t too bad, but I’m glad this week is over.  She seems to have nailed it!

Dinos and Donuts 2nd Birthday Party for Baby J

Dinos and Donuts 2nd Birthday Party…My little girl recently turned two and we threw her a Dinosaurs and Donuts party!  She absolutely loves dinosaurs, and I absolutely love doughnuts, so it was a perfect combination. And it wasn’t even that hard to throw a dinosaur party with a feminine vibe…

2018 Resolutions to be a Better Person

2018 Resolutions to be a Better Person…Being a better person is the top New Years Resolution for 2018, which is funny because that’s exactly what I planned on making my goal for this year. Last year I made Beauty Resolutions, and every year before that it has been weight loss resolutions, but I for one feel like it’s time to be less superficial and really make some positive changes in my life…

Comic Con: Pregnant, Cosplay and Family Adventures

Comic Con: Pregnant, Cosplay and Family Adventures…We recently went to Comic Con as a family and oh man was it ever fun! Carrying a 1.5 year old, being seven months pregnant, and being dressed in our Batman, Joker and Poison Ivy costumes made it extra special (and tiring), but we are already excited to go again next year with the new baby. He will be about 6 months old, so the family costume ideas are endless…
