For about a week Pittsburgh has been more snowy and cold than it has been all winter long. Just a few weeks ago we hit 78 degrees…it was heaven, but I must admit I am really anxious for April. With the cold weather upon us still…..
I thought it would be fun to put a twist to your normal Hot Chocolate and make Unicorn Hot Chocolate. Plus, I knew that Sophia would just love it.

Around Valentine’s Day I came up with the idea of making a Confetti Tumbler for Sophia. I was going to full the inside with her favorite candies, but it just so happens I could not find the right Tumbler any where to get the job done.
Sophia is like me, she loves anything that sparkles..she will say “ooooh mama that’s sparkle (with the emphasis of ‘kle’ sound).”
This tumbler is beyond easy to make, it took no time at all to make it! And I could not be more please on how it turned out.
Plus you can personalize it anyway you want!
What You Need:
1 Double insulated tumbler that twists off at the bottom (I bought this one from Amazon)
Confetti- Any kind that tickles your fancy
How to Make Sparkly Tumbler
- Twist off the bottom
- Fill with Confetti
- Add water right in where you inserted the Confetti
- Twist bottom back on tight
And that is all there is to it!
I really wish I would have thought of making Confetti Tumblers as Party favors for her Confetti Birthday Party and here are the Confetti Balloons just in case you are curious!
I got most of my Confetti from Michael Arts & Crafts, plus I also had a bunch just hanging around my craft supply box! This would make a really fun Girl Scout project! I mean who doesn’t like sparkly and fun!
It makes me want to drink out of my Tumbler more…hey…maybe it will convince me to consume more water on a daily basis!
Maybe I should start a Confetti Tumbler business on Etsy!
You might be thinking…what is this? I would be…if I wasn’t the one writing this post. Just a little bit of honesty….BUT…if you thought what on earth are those Fruity Pebbles covering…then you might be a little shocked if I were to tell you it’s chicken…yeah that’s right…chicken.
Last weekend I invited my cousin Jess over for dinner; along with her oldest son Parker and hew newest addition Jace for some… (hold the phone)…Fruity Pebble Chicken. I thought this would be a fun dinner for the kiddos…colorful…and chicken fingers…need I say more.
So last night we adventured into the world of Fruity Pebbles Chicken Fingers.
Initially, I was very skeptical..the thought of Fruity Pebbles on chicken just honestly did not sound very appealing by any means. Just yuck..right? So, to keep it from being a completely disappointing meal if that was going to be the case…I also made just plain old regular Chicken Fingers. You know just in case…
I. Was. Surprised.
They Were Delicious.
They were like eating a a very mild Honey Chicken, a slight sweetness…but not gross…
So if you are looking for something fun to feed the kids or want to try something out of the ordinary…Fruity Pebbles Chicken Fingers.
Food for Thought..I want to meet the person that thought “put Fruity Pebbles on chicken.”
Sophia’s birthday was Confetti theme this year, so I knew that I wanted to have Confetti Balloons all over the place. To be honest I was not quite sure how to go about making them. So, after doing a good amount of research I found it was going to be easier and much more cost efficient if I did them myself, rather than ordering them. Or have someone do them for me.
For the confetti I cut up old tissue paper that I received from prior birthdays, baby showers, holidays..etc. Many party stores that I contacted that have done Confetti Balloons for customers in the past do not recommend using the glitter confetti. Due to the balloons popping once helium is injected into the balloon.

I am a total avid youtube watcher, it’s a serious addiction. I have been following a few channels for quite sometime now, but one of my favorite channels is called HeyKayli. I just love her, she is so crafty and down -to -earth. If I was a ‘youtuber,’ I would want a channel like hers.
The other day I saw she made some non-alcoholic tropical drinks with her two kids. And I thought “I have to make those for Sophia.” Considering we only have about a month left of summer these drinks are perfect way to celebrate the season a little bit longer.

For the longest time I have been wanting to make a homemade ice cream. When I was at Le Cordon Bleu I was taught how to make it, but it was sort of a process. Since Sophia is here..there…and everywhere within a blink of an eye, quick treats are right up my alley.
This recipe can be found at Some of This and That blog. The author did hers as a galaxy theme. My inspiration was my new Alex and Ani Unicorn bracelet, when I think of Unicorns I think tons of colors! Plus, I thought that Sophia would enjoy all the bright colors!

Yesterday I spent a good part of the morning and into the early afternoon with Sophia outside. Definitely before it became ultra hot and muggy out. I have not done any random photo shots in a long while, so yesterday was a perfect day for it.
