Life: A Hello Kitty Birthday Party

Last weekend we celebrated our little goddaughter’s 7th birthday.  She had never had a party and we couldn’t be happier to be able to do it for her.  We decided early on to make it a surprise party and we didn’t tell anyone in the Hubby’s side of the family.  We were hoping to have a beautiful sunny Southern California day but unfortunately it was extremely cold.  It was so cold I had to bring out blankets for everyone to use.  I know that if my family from Kansas is reading this they will laugh at us but give me a break 50 °F is cold to us.   If you follow me on Twitter or on Instagram you know that I got a cold the day after Thanksgiving.  I wasn’t planning on getting sick and as a result I didn’t have time to finish up some projects I had planned to do.  Without further ado here’s the small party we had for our little goddaughter.

Sweets: Easy Peasy Banana Chocolate Chip Bread (Pinterest Inspiration)

Like most of you guys out there I'm a tad obsessed with Pinterest. This week I've decided that it was time to stop pinning and start doing.  For my first project I choose this pin from Artsy Fartsy Mama since it seemed easy enough to do especially since I had overripe banana's on the counter.  The hubby is used to my from scratch banana nut bread so I wasn't sure how he was going to react to this bread.

Sweets: The Best Pancakes…

...well at least thus far.  Growing up as a child my mom used to make us pancakes on the weekends, the box kind.  When I worked at the "Happiest Place on Earth" everyone used to eat pancakes at the restaurant where I worked but I used to get them from the employee diner, the pre-made stuff. Now as an adult I decided that it was time to kick the box and pre-made habit and make them from scratch.


I searched all around the web until I found a recipe that I believed deserved some attention and where I can use up some buttermilk I had.
