Did You Wear Green?

I picked out my outfit for today, last night.  A cute little DKNY brown colored Winter dress.  When I woke up this morning at 4:25 a.m. I turned on Fox 5 News as I always do.  That's when I was reminded that it was Saint Patrick's Day.  Then came the decision, should I change my outfit to add a touch of green or should I wear the dress that will be too hot to wear tomorrow because temperatures will hit 70 degrees?  I figured I would join in the spirit of St. Patrick's Day even though I am nowhere close to being Irish.  I broke out the hot iron and began pressing my green sweater.

After getting dressed and while preparing to walk out of the door, I realized that none of the news anchors were wearing green.  Of all people, they represent the community!  Not even a green button - I guess they all forgot.  I figured I would continue on with the spirit and walked out with my touch of green.  Upon arriving at work it was immediately clear that I was the only one wearing green.  I guess people just don't put in a little effort to wear something just for fun.

To those of you that are wearing green today on Saint Patrick's Day - the luck of the Irish to you.  Those who didn't, I hope you get pinched all day!

My Microblading Experience: Will I do it again?

So I decided to try microblading on my eyebrows. As a side note, if you plan on having it done for your wedding or other event, I recommend getting the procedure done no less than 3 months before your event.  After scouring the internet and watching countless Youtube videos and checking out Instagram photos, I became obsessed with this new beauty craze.

For those of you who aren't familar with microblading, it is a type of permanent makeup for your eyebrows.  Your eyebrows are tattooed with permanent ink.  The ink is deposited under the skin, just like a regular tattoo.  Instead of a tattoo blade, microblading uses several needles formoing a blade to cut the skin.  The result is hairlike brush strokes cuts on the skin which are then filled with your choice of colored ink.  While this is a form of permanent make-up, just like any tattoo, touch ups are needed so it's not a one time permenent thing.

If you are like me, before I got the procedure, the main thing you probably want…

10 Great Birthday Party Places for Kids in the Washington DC Area

So it happens to me every year, actually twice a year since I have two boys.  I wait until the last minute to start planning because I have no idea where to hold their birthday parties.  If you are like me, you prefer to keep people out of the house.  For someone like me it is easier to pay someone to set-up, host, entertain and clean-up.  That way, everyone can pack up and go home without a hassle.

While searching online I found a host of unique places that just never come to mind when I'm trying to figure what to do for the kids.  These are in no particular order but I went ahead and compiled a list of my top 10 favorites within the DC, MD and VA (DMV) area.  Feel free to add your own in the comments section below:
