About Me

My photo

Life is beautiful whether you're soaking in sunshine or caught in a thunderstorm. I take the beauty of life for granted too often. I have a supportive husband who I don't want to live life without, a beautiful son who is always reminding me of the simple things that really matter, and an independent daughter who is teaching me to throw schedules out the window and live in the moment. My day is made when free samples fill my mailbox. I love discovering a new product and sharing it with others. I'm addicted to coupons and every penny counts. I hope you will enjoy reading my posts and will share your success stories with me as well.

Ty's First Birthday Party

We had Ty's 1st birthday party this past Saturday.  My husband and I are huge Red Sox baseball fans so it was natural for us to have a baseball themed birthday party for Ty.  We made our own invitations and Mike came up with some great ideas for it.  Here's what they said:

You're Invited to Ty's Big League Debut
Game Day:  Saturday, July 9th
First Pitch: 5:30 pm
Location:  Genovese Ball Park - Our Home Address
Concessions:  Fenway Franks, Cold Drinks, Homemade Ice Cream
Claim Your Tickets:  my email address and phone #

We served food that they would have at the ball park such as hot dogs with toppings of chili, cheese, relish, chow chow, jalapenos, coleslaw, and banana peppers.  I also had nachos and cheese and watermelon available.  For dessert, I attempted to make homemade ice cream but the ice cream didn't set so I had my father-in-law run to the grocery store to pick up Blue Bell ice cream instead.  I made a chocolate cake with peanut butter icing and a butter cake with cream cheese icing.  I picked up some cake toppers at Wilson's Five and Dime Store.  Here's a picture of the cakes:

For the party favors, I picked up Big League chewing gum, sparklers, Babe Ruth candy bars, baseball cards, baseball tattoos, squishy baseballs, peanuts and a baseball notepad.  The only other item I really wanted to put in the bags was a box of Cracker Jacks but I couldn't find them in the couple stores I went into and ran out of time to keep looking.


Mike had the great idea of putting the party favor bags in this adorable wagon a friend made.


Ty had a great birthday party and got spoiled with a lot of gifts!  Thanks to everyone who came out and helped us celebrate Ty's first birthday!
