Have you ever reached for a drink just to wonder, “Is this mine?”  It’s easy to happen, especially in the hustle and bustle of a game day party.  They make those little charms for wine glasses so I thought I’d make my own version for bottles.

Recently we received a copy of the new My Little Pony Friendship is Magic: A Dash of Awesome DVD.  Bubbles discovered the show on TV not too long ago and really seemed to enjoy it, so it was good timing for us to share our thoughts with you on it.

My Little Pony Friendship Is Magic: A Dash of Awesome is a compilation of episodes all about Rainbow Dash.  Rainbow Dash is actually one of the ponies I remember from when I was growing up, and I always enjoyed her spunk and enthusiasm, so this was a fun DVD for us to watch.  We were pleasantly surprised at how much content there was, too, as the DVD was a full 120 minutes.

My favorite episode on the DVD was “May The Best Pet Win!”  Rainbow Dash is trying to choose the best pet for her and there are a lot that would like the job.  She tends to think that her pet needs to be special, fast, and better than anyone else.  So she sets up a competition to pick the winner, but learns a little something about what makes a good companion along the way.

So, it’s March.  And while March means lots of things – the onset of spring and my birthday, for example – it also means one other major event.  College hoops tournament!

Now, here in Kentucky college basketball is a Really Big Deal.  One of our colleges actually has the most wins over like the last five decades.  People here live and breath it all season, but especially in March.  Local businesses even close down and send employees home just to watch.

For me, it’s the perfect excuse to have friends and family over to watch the basketball games on TV.  And because I love a theme, I’ve been putting together a few pizza party ideas to share with you all.  Pizza is a convenient food to share with guests, plus it’s easy for everyone to eat while jumping up and down and cheering.

I can’t believe I’m typing this, but Bubbles turns 3-years-old this month.  Seriously, I know the cliches about growing up so fast and how time flies – but it’s just so true.  She’s more preschooler than toddler, and lets us know what a “big girl” she is on a regular basis.

Her birthday party will be this weekend, and when offered multiple choices on party themes she, unsurprisingly, chose Disney Planes.  So this week I’ve been working on a few favors and supplies.  I still need to finish up the party favors and treat bags, plus finalize my cake design.  But I think I have all the table decorations and paper goods so not too much left to do.

Which is good, because Bubbles is super-excited about her party.  She asks every morning if it’s her birthday yet, rattles off the guest list, and asks about her Disney Planes cake.  She also has invited pretty much everyone at any store we’ve been to in the past two weeks. Continue reading »

If you remember back before the holidays, I told you about our family’s love for HoneyBaked Ham as a Christmas Eve staple.  Granted, I’d happily eat it any day of the week, but that’s the occasion with which I’ve always associated it.  But after spending time inside one of the local HoneyBaked Ham Cafes, I found that they offer a whole lot more.

In addition to being able to walk in and pick up a ham, I found that they also have whole and half turkey breast with that same delicious crunchy crackle.  Growing up, all our holiday dinners always included both ham and turkey, so this was a good piece of information to learn.  Now I can serve both to my guests, also, and only need to stop one place to pick them up.
