WOW – what a generous giveaway!
Last week I organized my little one’s 9th birthday party and first ever sleepover. The party had a Monster High theme – I spent days on Pinterest looking for ideas for decorations, games and food. There were 5 guests and I let them make their own pizza from scratch (I made the dough but they each rolled their own pizza), then there were homemade games and in the end there was a movie screened on the wall on our deck. The party ended at 23:30 and 2 friends stayed the night – they stayed up telling each other stories in the dark with a flashlight and talking until 3am! My little one was so happy!

I took my almost 3 yr old granddaughter to Cherry Berry (a self serve frozen yogurt shop) and let her pick out the flavor of frozen yogurt along with any of the toppings she wanted! She came up with a crazy combination but she ended up eating it all so I guess she liked it!

This summer I got a new puppy and home-schooled her to be around me at the apartment: to pee in the right place, get in and out of the elevator and to walk by my side :) it was fun to get to know more about Doug’s behavior, believe it or not, they’re a lot like babies!

So far this summer all of my children have been very ill. Saturday was the first day some of them had left the house since the end of June. We have lots of things to catch up on so we will be enjoying our summer at full force now that everyone is healthy again (Thank the Lord).

Although our summer so far has been awesome, the best is yet to come. In two weeks we are heading to Disney world. I’ve waited 41 years for this and am so lucky to spend it with my awesome 8yr old daughter and amazing husband of 12 years. The giveaway would cap off a perfect summer! Thank you.

I am pregnant with our second child and due to lasting sickness I haven’t really been up to doing anything fun so far. But I did start writing LONG lists of all the parties, family reunions and dinner parties I want to give when the baby is there and I can finally smell and eat food again! An ice-cream party would be a great addition to that list!

Nothing all that fun yet, unfortunately. Preparing for some surgery, a week from today. I did bake a tiara cake for my niece’s birthday, which she enjoyed very much. Ice cream would make my summer fun ;)

Ooo I would love to make home made ice cream,and that book is an added bonus! I went hiking for the first time to University Falls,and going back to the car uphill was a struggle! If I go again soon,I would surely reward myself with some nice home-made ice-cream! :D

My husband and I drove to Fishing Creek, MD the other day to explore a seaside seafood restaurant that is supposedly a local favorite – we had crabcakes, stuffed shrimp, and steamed shrimp that was seasoned with Old Bay. Everything was fresh and the food was pretty solid. The restaurant was right next to a creek, making the scenery very quaint and tranquil. We love going on adventures to find good food, whether it’s 5 minutes away or takes a few hours to drive to it!
