Ninja Turtles Cake

I got the chance to make a ninja turtles birthday cake for a boy turning 6 this week! I was pretty excited/nervous because I wanted to make sure the details were all there for this little guy. I mean 6 year olds know their favorite characters really well am I right?! As I was doing this cake I found out my husband and several friends consider themselves ninja turtle fans (ahem… experts) from when we were that age ๐Ÿ™‚ so I had lots of help getting this just right!

Wild Things Birthday Party!

Today is my son’s 4th Birthday! My youngest is 4?! Wow did that fly by… it’s been 4 wild years of learning to be a boy momma.

Homemade Guacamole

Happy Cinco De Mayo! I’ve heard that America celebrates this much more than Mexico, but regardless this is just another great excuse for my husband’s favorite food! He loves all Mexican food and tonight is having some guys over to watch the Oklahoma City Thunder game. So I decided to make him some homemade guacamole to share (or not share) with his friends.
