Party Girl :: Back to School



It's that time of year again when I must drag myself out of bed, walk to school and see nearly everyone I know before a civilized hour.  My trick to surviving this potentially embarrassing situation involves a darling coat, really comfortable shoes {that I can be seen in public in!}, and coffee.  Lots of coffee.  What's your solution?  Party on moms.

Weeknight Dinner :: Gyros


Do you have a regular dinner that you go to every week?  This is one of ours.  The children can customize it - I can marinade the meat ahead and make the tzatziki ahead.  It's done in no time.  Because that's how much time I have after school and before dinner.

A Party Girl Cake {by Amy Christie}


No birthday is complete without a cake.  And when you ask Amy Christie to make the cake - she brings it!  Amy made a Champagne Cake with fancy frosting and edible gold leaf.  It's even cooler because she started with a boxed cake mix!  Easy!  Fancy!  Totally Weeknight Party Girl!

Click here for the recipe + Amy's coolness in general.



Did you miss any part of my birthday!?  {Shame on you, it's rude to be late to a party} But you can catch up here.  And hopefully you brought a good gift to make up for it.

Smooches!



Have a great weekend!  See you Monday.
