We went into Brooklynn after Kevin’s NYCFC soccer game. Ate at Grimaldis (the one time I can’t turn down pizza). I shared it on Instagram stories and so many of you said to go to Juliana’s next door (the original owner of Grimaldis). So we will do that next time we go! We got the kids ice-cream at Brooklyn Ice-cream Factory and rode the merry-go-round. Walking across the Brooklynn Bridge is something I also recommend, I just think it is an amazing piece of History. It took 14 years to build! So don’t feel bad if it takes you some time to get your house in order! Good things take time.

We had a S’more Off as a party at my sisters home the other night. We had friends bring different creative ideas for S’mores. The result is some healthy options to your typical S’more. The winner actually did not even use a marshmallow! Come see my sisters gorgeous backyard and check out all over our fun ideas!
Ella, my oldest just turned 9. We had a fun birthday party for her that actually would be fun for any party. I was surprised to find canvas’s are pretty inexpensive when bought in bulk and acrylic paints are so fun to use. Come see how they turned out and a great way to mix in kids art into your home.
Have you ever heard of a Raclette? Or Raclette cheese? Well if no, then you were in the same boat as me. I went to bookclub last month and the host served dinner on a Raclette. It was SO much fun! I kept thinking how great this would be for a Valentine dinner. Come see how fun and easy this dinner was!
My daughter just turned 6! She knew exactly what type of Birthday party she wanted. She insisted on a craft and she didn’t have to ask me twice! We made the cutest “Better than Salt Dough” ornaments. I made another batch the next day and am using them on our Christmas Presents- trust me you want to see how they turned out!
My oldest daughter, Ella is eight years old and has been on a kick of wanting to cook things “all on her own.” She has been even more inspired while we have been reading our new favorite book series Disney Star Darlings. She has conquered French Toast, a smoothie and can make a mean peanut butter sandwich for her lunch, so naturally dinner was next. Both of her Aunts were in town this past week so we decided to make a fun “Night of Celebration” like they do in the Star Darlings books. Complete with Tye-Dyed Cupcake Jars and Colorful Healthy Lettuce Wraps, such a easy and great dinner recipe.
This slush recipe has been in our family for four generations. I had asked my mom for family recipes when I was in middle school for a school assignment, this slush was one of the recipes along with caramel popcorn and apple cobbler. It was my great grandma Smart’s recipe, so that is why I call it Smart Slush. I like to make this slush for Holiday parties, Showers or Book clubs really any and every party. Perfect for Easter this coming weekend.
I did a Birthday party at our home for our 8 year old Ella. I had looked into going somewhere, because 10 little girls in a 1200 square foot house seemed a bit tight. Then I thought I should not let the size of our home hold us back from enjoying it and doing what she wanted to do. Ella wanted to have a “late night”. So we invited some friends over and made dream catchers, I fed them french toast for dinner with fruit and sausage, we watched the movie Pan (which is similar to Peter Pan, we all loved it) then played our favorite birthday game “who knows Ella best” you can find it HERE and did a little dancing. We topped the night off with brownies and mint ice-cream as per the birthday girls request. The dream catchers were the highlight of the night, a big hit. This is how we made them-
