6 Tips For The Perfect Birthday Party #BirthdaysMadeBrighter


I have 2 kids that have summer birthdays. I love it because it’s more casual and fun. Everyone loves summer vacation and a party gives my kids an excuse to get together with their friends to hang out and celebrate.

In July we have my son’s birthday and in August we have my daughter’s birthday. Birthday parties can be fun and easy if you always have a plan! Here are my 6 tips to make party planning a breeze!

Cards for the birthday kid:

Cards are special to me. They can really make an impact that can make you feel extra special. My dad always gives us a card for our birthday, anniversary, and Christmas. I know he spends a long time in the card aisle reading every single card until he finds the perfect card that fits our relationship. I want my kids to know that cards are special and sentimental. I want the cards to be a big part of the special occasions in our lives.

When I was at Meijer, I picked up a fun birthday card for his party and a special one for his birthday. Since my daughter’s birthday is next month, I found the perfect card for her too. Read more…


I love that Disney keeps making so many great movies! Our family is a huge fan of the first INCREDIBLES movie and we just watched WRECK-IT RALPH not too long ago! At the D23 Expo they shared a ton of fun news about future movies. Here’a peek into these 2 movies!

John Lasseter, who’s looked forward to the return of everyone’s favorite family of superheroes since THE INCREDIBLES was still in production, was excited to share with fans a look at what the fashion world thinks of super-suit stylist Edna Mode—the petite-but-powerful character introduced in Pixar Animation Studio’s 2004 Oscar®-winning feature. Showcasing fashion phenoms from Heidi Klum and Kendall Jenner to Zac Posen and Rachel Zoe, the video can be viewed here: Read more…

My mom was a work at home mom before being a work at home mom was a thing. My parents owned a towing business and she was at home to answer the calls and dispatch the drivers to the stranded drivers. She could not leave the house. If she needed to go grocery shopping she had to make sure my dad could be home to answer the phone and send out one of his employees.

With the invention of the cell phone gave my family a little more freedom. I remember my parents going to our softball games with a giant case that held a cell phone. Sometimes my mom would even bring it to the grocery store and she would have to stop in the middle of the aisle to answer the call and send someone out.
