My boys are both huge fans of the Pixar CARS movies, and I had a BLAST making this Radiator Springs birthday cake for my youngest! Now, I will be the first to admit that I do not bake, nor do I create fancy cake decor. I’ve always hired out for that, when and if needed. […]
Summer is such a bright, cheerful time of the year, and it means different things to different people. For me, summer means bbqs, campfires, the smell of freshly cut grass, and . . . birthday party prep. Both of my boys have summer birthdays, and it seems just when I finish planning and executing the first one, it’s time for the next party planning.

Is there anything as wonderful as the delicious pairing of wine and cheese?? …Trick question. Of course not!! One of my favorite things to set up for any party or get-together is a cheese platter. I.ADORE.CHEESE. Any kind! Hard cheeses, soft cheeses, stinky and mild. . . is it cheese? Then I’ll eat it!
Normally when we have a boys sleepover at our house, we just rely on the basement playroom and various toys to keep the kids occupied until closer to bedtime when we usually go the movie-and-popcorn route. Since it was a sleepover/birthday party, I decided to make things a little more festive. A quick trip to Walmart and less than $20 worth of supplies and my imagination got to work.
