Baby Magic's 2nd Birthday!

ZOOOOOOOOOOOOMMMMMMMMMMM!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!


That my friend, is the sound of time speeding by! I guess I should stop calling her a baby. But I won't! She will always be my little baby! Even when she is taller than me (which I know is going to happen).

I decided not to throw a big fancy party this year. My initial plan was to just have hot dogs, cake and ice cream with our immediate family. This was frowned upon by many. So we ventured to our local CiCi's Pizza. I made a cupcake pull apart cake and put together some goody bags, oh and made cake pops. It was pretty much stress free. Except CiCi's was stupid busy for a Tuesday night and it was HOT inside the restaurant.

Boogie enjoyed herself tremendously...and there are several toes that got ran over by a doll stroller to prove it! We are eternally grateful for our friends and family that continue to make our lives special and filled with love!

She is still very much obsessed with Dora the Explorer (and her cousin Diego). So I let that be the theme. I ordered some little figurines from an Ebay seller in China for the cake and found the loot bags and the goodies it was stuffed with at Party City. Super simple!

Of course I had to consult my favorite site, Pinterest, for cake ideas. I came up with several. Once I printed them out, I left them sitting around and the one I went with was what Boogie picked out. She was pleased and so was I!

At first I was a little intimidated, but I pushed on through and came up with this! I wish I could take all the credit, but the idea was totally found on Pinterest. I just improvised with the items I had in the pantry.

I stuffed the spaces in between the cupcakes with marshmallows so I wouldn't have to use so much frosting!



The completed cake!
I used cake pops for "trees", the bridge is Tootsie Rolls cut in half, the path is made of granola and the little bushes are marshmallows covered in buttercream with flower shaped sprinkles.

She loved her cake! Even if she cried the entire time we sang "Happy Birthday!" Thanks to all that celebrated with us physically and in spirit! We appreciate the love and all the gifts!

She REFUSED to take a decent picture...she wanted the camera!

One of many tantrums thrown that day

Dial Vitamin Boost Giveaway

Howdy folks! Dial sent me a bottle of their new Vitamin Boost Body Wash to test out. They even sent me a few coupons to give away to you guys! Don't they ROCK?! Yeah they do, and so does this new body wash! I got the product a few weeks ago, but as is with most things that come to my house, it just sat in the living room unopened. Not because I didn't want to open it...but I've been a little short on time. Even with several snow days it seems like I just don't have enough hours in a day. Does that mean I don't wash? NOOOO. It means that this body wash just made it upstairs with me this morning! LOL I'm always skeptical about "moisturizing" body washes. I have extremely sensitive, eczema prone skin. So I really have to be careful. Even some washes that claim to be triple moisturizing dry me out and leave me wishing I had one of those cat towers to rub up against. So I finally got to test the waters with this one. Here are what this product c

Dial Baby & Kids (Giveaway)

Let me start by saying that the toddler years are fun...and a true test of faith and patience LOL! I love my little tot with everything I have in me. But every day she tests my limits in way I didn't even know were possible. I mostly laugh. She is a very spirited little girl who LOVES to be outside. I mean she will cry to go outside and sometimes all she wants to do is climb in a chair and sit on the porch and watch the cars go by. On this particular day though...(Jesus be a fence) she wanted to chase lizards, pop bubbles, shred leaves, kick her ball in the sticker bushes and throw a flower pot off the deck to see how far she could get it to go. Maybe softball is in her future, who knows LOL. That said ball ended up bursting from being repeatedly kicked in the sticker bushes... After our world wind backyard excursion, we go inside to have a snack and settle down a bit. Luckily she likes to wash her hands. I mean, she almost had that lizard! She really enjoys Dial W

Baby Magic is Here! My Birth Story

Princesses get their way. And true to form, my little princess decided that she, and only she would be in control of when she arrived. Forget about me or the doctors trying to schedule ANYTHING! **This is a long post that goes into detail. Read at your own risk.** On Sunday, July 21st...no scratch that. On Saturday, July 20th, I was having cramps. They weren't too painful and were coming only about once every hour. Honestly, I thought I had gas. I had a good bit of visitors that day and told everybody that I felt like I was going to have the baby soon. I was already on bed rest and wasn't doing much. Thanks to some awesome friends, I had enough food that all I had to do was warm it and eat it. After all of the company left, I really just wanted to lie down. So I went to bed. I was awakened maybe 3 times during the night with these "cramps." The next morning I got out of bed about 10:30am (late for me) and took a shower, hoping that the heat would soothe me.
