This Macy’s flower show event post is sponsored by Everywhere.  All thoughts and opinions are my own.

Last weekend Bubbles and I had the opportunity to spend some time at our local Macy’s at the Oxmoor Center Mall.  We often visit the mall on the weekends, but this Saturday we were there for something special.  Macy’s was celebrating the arrival of spring and spring fashion with their Flower Show Event with a Secret Garden theme.

Bubbles loves pretty clothes as much, if not more, than any girl, so I knew she’d love seeing the fancy hats and beautiful looks for spring.  But aside from that, I also had heard that Macy’s was planning lots of fun little events for kiddos and adults alike. Continue reading »

If you read a lot of blogs you may have heard a common locale mentioned recently: Chicago.  Bloggers from all over the world (literally, from as far away as Australia!) recently descended on the Windy City for a chance to meet up, have some fun, and learn a few things.  I’ve always wanted to attend and this year I was lucky enough to join them.

I was also lucky enough to attend what has been labeled the Biggest Night of Play and shortly you’ll see why.  Sweet Suite is hosted by http://www.TheBigToyBook.com, Joey Fortman from RealMomMedia.com & Charlene DeLoach from CharleneChronicles.com and is an opportunity for bloggers to see some of the hottest toys available, as well as some that are on the horizon.  And not only did we get to see the toys, we were able to play with the toys, too.  Yup, that’s right – hundreds of adults walking around, building with blocks, playing video games, and squeeing like kids on Christmas morning (I may have done a bit of squeeing, myself).

Thanks to US Family Guide for providing Thomas the Train Tour tickets for our family.

Bubbles enjoys watching Thomas the Train and so I was excited to find out that the Go Go Thomas Tour 2013 would be making a stop at the Kentucky Railroad Museum.  It’s not too far from us and it would be our first time riding a train, too.  So we’re planning a day out with Thomas!

Toddler Birthday Party Ideas

Toddler Birthday Party Ideas: part of the Turning 2 Toddler Birthday Celebration

Bubbles is turning two this month and I can’t believe it.  It honestly seems like the other day that she fit in the nook of my arm; now when I pick her up and we’re eye-to-eye, her toes dangle against my knees.  Every day she surprises us with a new phrase. activity, item, or look.  This month in the Turning 2 Toddler Birthday Celebration I’ll be sharing a lot of great things that she loves that I think other toddlers will enjoy.

Before the month gets too far away from me I’m trying to decide on a birthday theme for her party.  Pocoyo is favorite character but the merchandise for it is almost non-existent and I haven’t been able to find any party supplies.  So we’re looking at other options.  She takes after her Mama and is a little Disney girl which makes something Disney a top choice.  She loves Minnie Mouse, the Mickey Mouse Clubhouse show, Tinker Bell, and the princesses (she can name them all, with Rapunzel and Ariel being two of her favorites).  Here are some of the cute party ideas for a Minnie Mouse party I’ve found so far.
