Arya's second birthday is coming up soon and I'm having a full on blast planning it. So much fun to choose a theme, an outfit, and all of the other fun stuff that go along with a little girl's birthday party. This year's theme is...Candy Land! So bright and colorful. I'm all about it.
For me I really like choosing the decorations, planning the games, and creating a themed menu (that's all for me if I'm being honest, kids don't care about that stuff). What the kids always go nuts for is the pinatas. There's something about whacking an object with a stick until it just rains down candy upon you. I love how excited the kids get.
However this year I'm leaning towards using not just candy to fill the pinata, you know...sticking with my new healthy lifestyle. I'm thinking I could also put in erasers, small notepads, little toys, maybe a toothbrush. That's why I love pinatas that don't come pre-filled because I get to decide what goes in them.
I love the pinatas from Wholesale Party Supplies, because they're bright, fun, and adorable! I've used them for Isabella's mermaid themed 4th birthday party as well as for our kid Halloween party this past year. Sturdy and adorable...win/win.
So in keeping with the theme of Arya's birthday, I picked out a lovely ice cream pinata that I'm sure all of the kids will go nuts for!

I'm a pasta girl at heart. I could eat macaroni every single night. But since my waistline has a firm opinion in the matter I've had to find ways to lighten things up.

My littles are getting big. It struck me the other day as I watched them playing that they're not so little any more. They're like these walking, talking, thinking, people with their own spark, their own ideas.

First, let's get the particulars out of the way. I am not a doctor. I am not a lactation consultant. I am just a mother who drank Shakeology while nursing her baby BEFORE I ever even imagined signing up as a coach. This post is reflective of my experiences only.

I have an insane sweet tooth. I will choose a restaurant based on the dessert menu. Sugar addiction has been a huge obstacle for me to overcome in my health and fitness journey.

I love Chinese takeout. What I hate is the fat, sodium, and high calorie intake. It's just as easy and even cheaper just to make it yourself. This recipe is so super quick to make it will be gone before the delivery guy even rings your doorbell.

I used to care what everybody though about me. My fear of being judged, or being different was crippling. It riddled me with anxiety. Now if you're not someone who thinks that way then you're probably just rolling your eyes and calling me crazy. Which I accept.
