Ahhhh I Love these faces!
A reap of our weekend….
There are tons of sports games going on and last week we enjoyed a basketball game at Georgetown University! That night was freezing out but Liv had a blast cheering the ladies on! Girl Power indeed!
Next up the Baltimore Aquarium had a “Pay What You Want Day” which we obviously had to attend! The savings were well worth the crowded visit! After enjoying the aquarium we tried a new restaurant right next door called “Family Meal” located at 621 East Pratt Street. Literally this place was like a visit with your cool accommodating friends that don’t have kids, but open up their home to your family as if they do lol. The restaurant is really nice perfect for family or a cute date! Our favorite was the pot pie fritters we enjoyed ,definitely worth shouting about! Everyone who works there is kind and knowledgeable which is obviously coming from the top of there leadership. If your into (which I am) a good drink or locally grown items they have you covered! The cherry on the top that led us there was that they offered a “pay what you want” meal option on the menu coinciding with the aquarium event.
We hung out with the coolest sister/ aunt ever.
Liv was a real party animal and got the face paint to show for it!

Christmas Party!

Liv hosted her 1st Annual Christmas party and it was fun times had by all! So much so that mommy didn’t have a second to take many pictures ….
Liv’s guest were greeted with holiday tunes ( let me just say that while Christmas shopping we purchased a Bluetooth device that allowed me to play Pandora from my iPad through our Ihome system… Am I late on this!?! We Love It!)
The little people munched on snacks galore one of my favorites being the “Rice Krispy Tree”

I also created a photobooth backdrop from a thrifted thick table cloth with snowman designs on it. Creative, yet the kids couldn’t stay still long enough to get many still shots.
In addition to ornament making the kids had a blast on their candy cane hunt which was really made successful by the 70 degree weather we had this weekend.
For the first time I dyed noodles so the spaghetti dish was holiday themed with green noodles and red sauce. This holiday has really gotten me into utilizing food color in my edibles to add to the decor of an event. It excites me to add that extra festive touch and I’m sure I will be doing that for each holiday now 🙂
