I’d like to share a dessert table I worked on a few months ago for a graduation party.

It was a Black, White and Red themed party. The rest of the decor was damask, so I used that for inspiration.

For the sweets, most of the items used were pre made and store bought. It made the decorating so much easier.

The chocolate covered white pretzels were so convenient.

I love how the white meringue contrasted well with the red roses.

Pastries were served in white cupcake liners and laid out nicely on black platters.

The Red Vines were such a hit!

This was a great color theme. Cant wait to try other combinations next time!

My brother in law made 5 kinds of cupcakes.


I made some Yo Gabba Gabba Chocolate dipped marshmallows.


For the dessert table backdrop, I made some giant tissue fans.


My sister in law made the celebrant a rainbow tutu.


It was a very bright and colorful party. The kids all had a great time!

DS wanted to celebrate his 7th birthday in Legoland this year. We scored 2 day Park Hopper passes through a friend’s discount.

Our passes were good for admission to Sea Life, Legoland Theme Park and the Legoland Water Park.

We went to Sea Life first, because the theme park was still closed when we got there. Sea life is an aquarium with Lego characters. The set up is catered to young children and very interactive. It’s almost like a discovery museum. DS and DD enjoyed it! I loved the variety of colorful sea animals the most =)


The Theme Park was cute. They had a variety of attractions for the children. DH was able to ride with DS in the more adventurous rides and I stayed with DD unless there was a ride she felt like getting on.



I was very happy with the variety of rides available. The kids were able to enjoy rides they were able to go on by themselves and there were also some that we can all go on as a family.




More than just the rides, we also enjoyed the other activities available in the park.



Yup, that’s my family on the slide!

My kids had a blast panning for Gold!

There were a lot of photo opps everywhere! Walking Lego people!!!



And ALL types of Lego Sculptures! I love it!


There was a small water play area (apart from the actual Water Park), which is always a hit with the children!


Being parents to young children, I always appreciate play areas. And Legoland delivered! =)


We were there from opening to closing of the park and we didn’t even cover the whole park. I’m so glad we had a ticket for a 2nd day! Next time, we’ll be heading to the Water Park =)

It was very tiring, but very fun! We had an amazing family time celebrating DS’s 7th Birthday at Legoland California!

It has been a week since My DD’s 4th Birthday Party. We celebrated it Cowgirl Style.

We were super lucky to have found the Little Barn on Google.

It’s located on 130 s. Beaudry, Los Angeles, CA

I was able to put together a simple dessert table.

I used some crates and chopping boards to hold the goodies.

We were very lucky to have my brother in law make some very delicious cupcakes for the party.
Cowgirl cupcakes
These were chocolate cupcakes with yummy cream cheese frosting inside.

I made some Marshmallow Smores.
Marshmallow Smores
I stuck a marshmallow on a stick, dipped it on chocolate and then on crushed graham crackers. It was a hit. And I loved how easy it was to make them.

I also made some chocolate rice krispy treats.

I dipped them in chocolate and decorated them with a ribbon flag on a toothpick.

For the giveaways, I chose bandanas to hold the little favors.
Cowgirl Giveaways
They served a dual purpose, the actual goody bag and an extra favor as well.

The birthday girl had such a great time.

It was fun to have family and friends come to celebrate with us.

We had an amazing time celebrating the sweetest, smartest and best little girl a mommy and daddy could ever ask for.

Happy 4th Birthday to our Dearest Daughter, we love you and thank God for blessing us with you!

For my mom’s birthday, my dad wanted to celebrate it at West Covina. We normally don’t go by that area often, so I decided to plan the whole day around that city.

First, we visited my cousin in Forest Lawn West Covina.

I miss Jeanny so much!

Then, we ate a light lunch at Tapioca Express.

The Mango Yogurt is the Best!

Then, we headed to the mall for a quick stroll.

Finally, we met up to the Elephant Bar for some yummy dinner with the Birthday Celebrant and the rest of the fam bam!



I had no idea our day in West Covina was gonna be great! But it was better than great, it was amazing!

It’s my mom’s birthday yesterday. I wanted to make her a very special card. I’ve been thinking of making a particular card for the longest time, but haven’t had the chance to execute my idea. I just never seem to get a chance to, until now =)


It was funny how the kiddies were wondering why they were posing with a blank sheet of paper. Then their eyes lit up after I showed them the finished product!

I love this Fill in the Blank card idea. I can also change the words to whatever I want it to say. Oh yeah! =)
