news : parents magazine + instagram

I was thrilled that Parents magazine included my son's messy birthday party in their September issue. Go check it out if you haven't already! They've also got some great suggestions from chefs as to what to pack for school lunches...I've torn out the story and put it in my kitchen for inspiration.

In other news, my new favorite thing is instagram (user name: sarahicksmalone). I was just beginning to wean myself a bit off of Facebook and then this comes along. Darn! I'm hooked.

pirate -ish party

I can't read a lick of this Swedish (?) blog...but luckily these awesome images don't need any translation. Except, of course- that cake. Not sure what's going on there but I'm kind of loving it. Especially since I'm looking for inspiration for my daughter's party...she has requested a 'happy black dragon' birthday party. Wish me luck! More of the pirate-ish party here.

nautical party

Awesome nautical/boat party inspiration by diaper style memoirs! She claims she spent under $20 on all of the decorations- proof that a chic party can be had for a bargain.
