Oh September, how I love thee. . .September is a special, yet busy month in my household. Both of my boys were born in the month of September, which means party planning is at the top of my list, along with back to school, soccer, and all the fall events my little heart can stand!
This year instead of a joint birthday bash, both boys had their own, individual celebrations, which meant two weekends in a row of celebrations, which makes for one tired mommy and daddy! But we did it and they were equally, amazing and I think both boys will have lasting memories of their 3rd and 6th birthdays!
On the birthday menu this year for my 3-year-old, artist in training was a day of story-time and plate design at Color Me Mine. What a great way to have a one-stop adventure! The kids started off with a story of our choice (The Rainbow Fish) and then each child had a chance to decorate a plate. Each child had a special treat(customized beaded bracelets), to take along with them at the end and received their plates a week later! They really turned out cutey, cute, cute! My fave: Foundant cupcake toppers from Etsy! How cute are they?
Next up, a bowling adventure for a few (20) busy little bowlers! We started out with duck-pin bowling, enjoyed pizza, and ended with a full-candy bar, perfect filling up replica bowling bags (My sister’s creative genius was truly at work here).
All in all, we had a wonderful month of celebrations that were filled with lots of family and friends from far and near! Can’t wait to do it all again, next September!!!

It’s officially Fall, but that doesn’t mean you can’t continue to soak up that sun. Head to Miami’s newest gem, the Casa Claridge hotel. Not your typical Miami digs, but the Casa Claridge does keep it Miami sexy with a little less party party. Think your home away from home, Mediterranean style, beach cabanas and chaise lounges right on the beach, in the heart of South Beach in the bustling Faena Arts District, comfy beds, tasty Argentinian fare, iPads available upon request, and comp WiFi. . . how can I get there now! This will definitely be where I’m staying next time I go to Miami. . .I think I feel a girls trip coming on or just me and the hubby. Maybe a quick first trip without our little girl.
Let’s Go Inside. . .

Alright fall…bring it! I’m as ready as I can be but first, I’m going to start with these apple & honey muffins to ease into the cooler mornings!
Fall is officially here, and I am smitten by the sweatshirt pictured above! The Gap keeps surprising me and I think this cocoon, abstract-print, perfect transition piece, is right on trend!! It’s already been added to my fall collection!!! I’m also really lovin’ this one too!
Chat ya’ later!
