August 30th is National Marshmallow Toasting Day

No one really knows who proclaimed it but today (August 30th) is National Marshmallow toasting day.  It's just another day to add to our calendars but it's a great day to celebrate with the kids, or even host your own Marshmallow toasting party - just because!  I used to love smores as a kid and it's been years since I've had one.  I discovered this inexpensive decadent treat at 6th grade overnight camp.  There is nothing like the taste of a gooey marshmallow roasted over an open flame.  Check out this great recipe for a twist on smores! 

Smores Recipe
Ingredients
  • 1 cup butter, melted
  • 1/3 cup white sugar
  • 3 cups graham cracker crumbs
  • 2 cups semisweet chocolate chips
  • 3 cups miniature marshmallows

Directions

  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Butter a 9x13 inch baking dish.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine butter, sugar and graham cracker crumbs until well coated. Press half of crumb mixture into the bottom of the prepared pan. Top with the chocolate chips, then the marshmallows. Sprinkle the remaining graham cracker mixture over the marshmallows and press down with a spatula.
  3. Bake in preheated oven 10 minutes, until marshmallows are melted. Cool completely before cutting into squares. Enjoy!!

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…

Party Favors to Support Cancer Research

Help Support Children with Caner by Donating to St. Jude with Party Favors.
We will be participating in a Trike-a-Thon, May 18 - May 25, 2012, along with ICOG's Hope Child Care to raise funds for St. Jude Research Hospital.  Trike-A-Thon is a fun, week-long safety curriculum and fundraising program that supports St. Jude.

When you are looking to hire a wedding planner, there are three things that you need to take into consideration: cost, convenience and experience. You will pay some money, however, if you weigh time and stress savings, you may want to get a wedding planner to oversee your journey to the altar. Ideally many bridal consultants will charge anywhere between 10 and 20 percent of the wedding, and many will work on an hourly basis. There are others who will give you a package rate where everything is included. Most wedding planners have at least three package prices which cover the day of the service, consulting and full –service planning. According to The Association of Bridal Consultants the average cost for a wedding consultant as of April 2015, is $2,491 with the cost of the wedding at $28,082. In terms of convenience and avoiding stress, you may or many not want to factor this cost into your overall bridal budget. Let’s talk about the convenience you will gain from hiring a wedding con…
