Adorkable Kids Line Rocks

You may have seen our prior post on Adorkable Apparel and our fangirling over Traci Hines. Well, one thing that bummed me out is that there was nothing from the line that would fit the Monsters....until now that is! Adorable just released a great new Urban Mermaid Tee for kids and my lil' girls got a chance to show them off in the happiest place on earth: Disney World! We got so many compliments on the shirts while we were there, especially from Ariel herself! You have to get the little mermaid in your life one of these shirts. Check out our awesome mermaid shots below:

Easy Valentine's Lollipop Cards

I absolutely LOVE how Zoe's Valentine cards for school came out this year! I saw a great tutorial on Pinterest from Design Mom and just had to try it out. Even though she was a little under the weather this week, Zoe was a trooper for four our photo shoot and I got this great photo:

Zoe helped me design the card itself on PicMonkey since she loves using that site to design pictures of her own on it. I printed them out from CVS in standard photo size.

I got some organic heart shaped lollipops to put in Zoe's hand on the card. The way I found easiest was to use a straight razor blade to cut a tiny slit in the card and then I secured with tape on the back. The finished product was tons of 3D fun!

Check out the original tutorial and have a great Valentine's Day!

Party City Helps me Show my #DisneySide Perfectly! Frozen Giveaway Inside!

It is less than a week until our second official #DisneySide home celebration and it is pretty hectic around here! One thing I don't have to worry about though is party supplies because when I think of Disney and I think of party supplies, I naturally think of Party City, one of our kind sponsors from our first #DisneySide party.  Party City did not disappoint last year when we had our Mickey and Minnie bash, and they definitely are helping make my Preschool Princess Party an event to rival any royal ball!

Quite literally only the top layer of the shipment box....yikes! I have a Disney problem!

These lanterns will make great decorations and save me a lot of time crafting!

I had never seen these body jewels before....Party City has such original stuff in all themes!

Balloons for days!

One thing I love about Party City is their awesome selection of licensed costumes!

Decals will make the playroom even more special.

I found goodie bags to tie in perfectly with the cross theme of princess and Valentine's Day!

A coloring station is part of my plans.

A clever spin on a regular game.

Sofia has a starring role in the party!


This is just a small sampling of the party supplies I could have ordered in the princess theme; Party City thinks of everything! This isn't even the whole lot of stuff, so stay tuned for our party post to see more of their supplies coupled with my actual #DisneySide home celebration box.  Have you been thinking of showing off your own Disney Side lately? Do you have a Frozen obsessed child by any chance? Well then I have great news!  I am giving away some great Frozen swag from Party City! These items will be perfect for your coronation day, so enter below and get your party on!

Our #DisneySide Cake is Going to be Amazing: A Look at Sin Bakery in Providence

What's a good party without a great cake? I love a great cake, but we have the added caveat of finding great vegan cakes in this house. Now, I can make a mean boxed mix, but that's not exactly what I had in mind for our #DisneySide party. I wanted all the little princesses to be wowed, so I immediately thought of Sin Bakery in Providence, R.I. 

Sin is an awesome bakery that does handmade wedding and birthday cakes that just look amazing! And get this, they can make vegan cakes too! I also have a little girl with nut allergies attending the party and their vegan cake also happens to be nut free as well....score!

If you can dream it, Sin can make it! I gave them free creative control over our Preschool Princess cake, but check out some of their previous Disney creations:

Who doesn't love these two?

Perfect for a baby girl's first Disney birthday!
What little boy wouldn't love this?

All the classic characters in one perfect cake!

I cannot wait to show you all what Sin creates for our party! If you are in the Providence area check them out for all your party needs; they are great to work with and you won't regret it! So "Eat Wicked" and check out Sin!
