Friday's Party: Cherry Blossom Party

I saw this beautiful party via Amy Atlas Events and I just had to share this beautiful cherry blossom party.
Nothing says spring than fresh air and the smell of cherry blossoms.

Sweet 16 Birthday Ideas

My sweet and beautiful niece turns 16 today!

For her Birthday I wanted to do something with meaning so I framed this photo of us.

This was my niece and I before we headed out to the Taylor Swift concert this past fall.

Sweet 16 Gift Ideas for the Sweet Girl in Your Life:

I found this to be a very nice scented fragrance in which I ended up purchasing for my niece.

Another gift idea for the teen girl in your life are these pink glitter TOMS

A Satchel Bag. I think this one with the pink bow is darling

This darling Rose Gold Bow Ring.

Lounge Pants

I love lounge wear/ yoga wear and it is often what I can be found wearing on weekends unless we are going somewhere nice like to church or out for dinner. I have also started going to yoga and for my birthday (back in February) one of the presents my husband surprised me with was these lounge pants.

they also make great attire on a lazy, rainy Sunday
These yoga pants are also available wine and charcoal.

Energy Bites

During my search on Pinterest (aka my new addiction like everyone else) for some breakfast ideas I stumbled upon these Energy Bites my friend had pinned. These No-Bake Energy Bites are via Smashed Peas and Carrots. If you are looking for some other delicious treats Maggie from Smashed Peas and Carrots has more to share!

I did not have plain oatmeal on hand and substituted with rice krispies.

Paris Book for the Little Ones

In 2009 my husband and I went to Paris and I essentially left a piece of my heart there.

Some day we hope to return as a family, but in the mean time I want Miss Elle to learn as much as she can about this amazing city.

Since she LOVES books, I can't think of any cuter one for my little book worm than...
Henri's Walk to Paris
{Plus, Henri/Henry is one of my favorite names for a child}

{Images and a recap of the story via Black Eiffel}

Henri's Walk to Paris can be found on Amazon.

Cupcakes in a Cone

Today is my last class of Cupcakes N' Milk.
The special treat for today is cupcake in a cone and for an extra treat I am serving them with ice-cream.
I followed this recipe here via Betty Crocker and they turned out great!
Now, I just can't wait to see how the kids will frost their cones.

* I also think these cupcake cones would be a fun summer afternoon play date activity!

Book Club

I am no longer in a book club {haven't been for some time} due to various members moving away so I was really excited to see that Happy Hour Mom is launching a Happy Hour Book Club! If you are interested click on this link here

and with balancing a career and motherhood I don't have much free time during the evenings to be away so I like the idea of a cyber book club.

PS: If you are ever looking for good book recommendations I suggest you check out my friend Lisa's blog here and Good Reads
