Free Stuff Fridays @ Lauren's Hope

Do you know anyone who wears a medical ID bracelet?  It used to be really easy to spot one because let's face it... they were ugly. Today, that is not the case.  Lauren's Hope has changed the look of medical ids radically and I am happy to say that I am a proud owner of not only 1- but 2 interchangeable bracelets.  I just found the next one I want... and I can't wait to order it. Most people have NO idea that my bracelet is a medical id bracelet - unless I turn over my wrist so they can see the underneath!! The one I'm currently wearing is called "Changing Seasons."

The great folks over at Lauren's have started a new and fun "Free Stuff Fridays" - so hop over to their website and take a peek at the adorable bracelets they have.

Bean's Birthday!

Please allow me to wander away from the kitchen for a moment! This weekend my lovely daughter celebrated her 9th birthday. Well... since a birthday is nothing without cake - we decided to go with gluten free vegan cupcakes. Her theme was "pink pirate" so without further ado.... I give you pink pirate cupcakes!

I am always amused by the kids reactions when they find out that Bean is on a "special diet." This comes up at school all the time. However, the topic never came up yesterday. The very same kids who thumb their little noses to Bean's gluten free bread simply could NOT get enough of her cupcakes.

My husband was the life of the party. He spent a great portion of the day tossing small children several feet in the air to watching them fall into the pool, get out, and ask to be thrown again!

Case and point - a flying child!

My sweet bean opening her gifts - she received so many wonderful things. But, the most important thing was that she was surrounded
by wonderful friends and family.... and lots of love. 
(And cupcakes!)

Happy 9th Birthday, my precious Bean!
♥ I love you!! ♥
