Birthday Bonanza!

Hey friends! As most of you know I have two very special men in my life that both celebrate birthdays in January so I hope you won’t be offended that I’ve spent my last two weeks preparing for both of their special days πŸ˜‰

Logan turned 5 on the 11th!!!!


….Can you believe I have a 5 year old!?

…Can you believe this baby that started the blog with me is now a young man?!



He of course had a cake request all ready. He wanted ..”a 5 shaped cake mom, with butterflies on it” – oh ya?


…..not my best work, but I delivered, as per usual πŸ˜‰

Colin turned …… OMG


on the 16th….


“What’s the big deal….I still look the same”Β 

I made him a Mississippi Mud Pie (his fav….he’s currently devouring some of it as I type) and left it for him as I went to work.


I know you are all jealous of my cake writing on plastic wrap skills …..this is how the pros do it for sure πŸ˜‰

We ended up going out to see MOCKING JAY (part 1) and grabbing some dinner out. It was lovely. I do love him and we both love eating…and Katniss, so it was magical to say the least :)

Logan also had his party which went down amazingly well. In his words it was “very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very, very great” lol

I mean how can you go wrong when you have a piΓ±ata and fill your basement with balloons?


… can’t :)



Hope all is going well with you guys! I’m still a slacker on the workout front, though Colin, Rex and I have been going for daily walks……despite out NEGATIVE 30 degree weather πŸ˜‰



I ask this every.single.year but when is your birthday?? how old are you??

mine is December 15th and I’m 32 πŸ˜›

how do you start working out when you have kids and work….give me a tip!

balloons or cake???Β 

cake…..I could never sacrifice sugar for plastic…it’s so unlike meΒ 

what were your thoughts on Mocking Jay being TWO MOVIES?!?!?!?

I wasn’t a fan….I was so excited for Colin to see what happens and he felt like it left him feeling very unsatisfied…..I can’t wait for him to see the ending and know why I always refer to him as my PEETA <3 xoxoxo <—- PS THAT LINK IS WORTH THE CLICK πŸ˜‰ HAHAA!
