Dare to Share #374



It is Saturday morning, and you know what that means.. 
It is time to Dare to Share! 

I know I am posting this a bit later than normal. This week was a very busy week, and it all caught up with me last night.  We had three field trips in a row this week, which was a lot of fun.   I also went to the dance right after work like I normally do. On the way home I started to feel very tired. (good thing I was not driving)  Once home I felt so sleepy, I thought I would lay down for a bit and then post the party.  10 hour of sleep later here I am.. LOL!  

Better late than never!

Did you have a good 4th of July?  This year it seems to be a multiple day celebration since it was mid week.  We had a cookout/party at my friend's house on a lake on the actual day, went to a 4th of July themed dance tonight, and will see a local town's fireworks tomorrow.  I would love to hear what you did for the 4th. 

Since it is getting late, I am going to get this party started..

I had more fun with the kids I am working with this week.  We went to a baseball game, and played mini golf. We were planning on going on a special train excursion as well, but it had to be rescheduled.  The temperatures in our area are currently in the high 80s with a lot of humidity. The AC on the train was not working properly, so for the safety of all the kids we will wait until it is fixed. It is hard to believe that June is almost over and it's on to July!  

Hope everyone has a safe holiday week!! 

It is time to get this party started..

I am trying something new for the party this week.  Normally I post it pretty close to the time it goes live.  This week, since I know I will be busy all day with my summer job, I am actually preparing it a day early.  I am loving the new job, and starting to adjust to the hours.  This week has been a lot of fun.  I lost a game of laser tag to several 9 year olds who teamed up against me, went to the roller rink and watched Toy Story 4. In the next couple of weeks there are so many fun field trips that I am really looking forward to.  Do you have something planned this summer that you are really looking forward to? 

It is time to get this party started..

I started a job this week at a summer day camp program. So for it has been a lot of fun, but I am not used to working the hours of my shift yet.  During school I am done by 3:30 and home by 4. For this summer job I get to sleep in a bit later than school, but also have to work later so I am still adjusting to the new time. Tonight one of the parents was stuck in traffic, and was late for pick up. I also had plans right after work and did not remember to set up the code until after I got home.  Hopefully once I get used to my new routine, things will be up a bit quicker. 

Let's get this party started!  Link up and HAVE FUN!!

It is Saturday morning, and you know what that means... 
It is time to Dare to Share! 


Sorry I am a bit late this week.  Yesterday was our last day of school.  I worked all week as a para.  We had so much going on, including field day those last few days. I went with my friend to the dance last night to celebrate the end of the school year. While I was there I realized how tired I really was. On the way home I actually fell asleep.  Then once home, instead of posting the party live I thought I would get some sleep and post it early this morning.. Umm.. what I did not realize was I was sleep for 11 hours tired. Now  I will only have a few days break, and then I start my summer job with a summer day care program for school age kids.  I better get this party up and started..  Happy Summer Break!!

It is Friday night, and you know what that means.. 
It is time to Dare to Share!

I have an exciting weekend, and few weeks coming up. We are in our last three weeks of school. I am scheduled pretty much every single day until the last day.  On top of that the friend I mention a couple of weeks ago is graduating tomorrow morning, and her party is in just 2 weeks.  Might as well throw a holiday weekend in the mix as well.  I don't mind being busy though, and hope to have some new posts with the upcoming party.  

I also want to explain why the party was temporarily closed early this week.  You may not have noticed unless you tried to link during that time.   I have an InLinkz legacy account which is on autopay. InLinkz received my payment, but somehow missed processing it.  When it showed me as being unpaid, my account was switched to a free account with a limit of only 50 links per party.  I notified InLinkz as soon as I realized something was wrong.  They immediately fixed the error and reopened the party.  Everything should be back to normal now.  

It is time to get this week's party started.  Link up and HAVE FUN!!

As I write this I am about to go out with my friends tonight. Depending on what time I get back, I might update how the night went..  This week, I started planning a graduation party with a friend. She went back to college in her 40s to finish her degree.  Her graduation is a pretty big deal, and we want to celebrate her accomplishment.  I am working on a few posts on our planning, and with graduation party tips.. Stay tuned..

Tonight I went with a friend to see the new movie Dumbo. The original movie back in the day made me cry when Dumbo was separated from his mom.  I was worried that this movie would make me cry too, because baby Dumbo looks so real. It was a cute movie, and I only got a little bit teary eyed.  Have you seen Dumbo yet? Do you like that they are remaking all of the animated movies in to real life versions?  What is your favorite Disney movie that you have or would like to see remade? So far Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast have been my favorite remakes.  

Since it is getting late, I better get this party started.

How to Make a Unicorn Costume - Quick and Easy Tips



I was going through some older photos, and I came across pictures from Halloween.  As many of you know if you follow me on social media,  ( FacebookInstagramPinterest ) that I love unicorns.  This year I knew I wanted to make an unicorn costume that was easy, inexpensive, and comfortable to wear.  I needed to be able to dance in it, because my friends and I go to an annual Halloween dance in our area.  




Disclosure: This blog has affiliate links to products used in this post 

The first part of my costume I found was my unicorn horn for only $10 at a local festival. I fell in love with it right away.  It is kind of hard to tell in the picture, but it even lights up.  You can find unicorn horns pretty much everywhere now days, but here are a few of my favorites I found online.  (Unicorn horn with tulle maneShiny horn and ears



I knew I did not want to wear a wig, or put actual color in my hair for my costume.  I found multi-color hair clips on sale at Claires, and single color hair clips on clearance at Walmart. Here is something with a similar look I found on Amazon- Color hair pieces



At first I thought I would wear a boa as a tail. I loved the colorful look.  However, I did not like the trail of feathers I left behind me as I walked.  Knowing I would be shaking those feathers all over the dance floor, I decided against it.  If you like the look, check out this really cool rainbow boa I found. 



What I decided to do was make a tail out of tulle.  I had several 3 inch spools of rainbow colors in my craft stash. Tulle is easy to work with, and easy to cut to size. I am a pretty short human, so I wanted to make sure I did not trip over my tail while I danced.   I layered several different pieces in my desired length together until it was the size that I wanted.  I then knotted the top the tail.  I attached my tail to my belt loop of my favorite pair of white jeans.  







I knew I wanted a white rainbow top for my costume. I really wanted this one, but it was not available at the time.  I ended up another top that is very similar from DressLily



The night of the dance I did my make up using my daughter's Unicorn Eye Tutorial which you can see here

I got a lot of positive comments on my costume that night. I would definitely wear it again, if I have the chance. 


A fun night was had by all.  😊

Happy Friday! We are now officially on Spring Break! We are not going anywhere, but we will a week with no schedule. Everyone was asking me what I was going to do for break, all I could think to say was sleep..LOL!   If you were at last week's party you know I mentioned my friend's baby shower.  It turned out really nice and she got a lot of cute gifts for her baby girl. (think lots of pink)  I got her some cute onesies which she will get a lot of use out of in the hot summer months, and a unicorn lovie blanket.  The new baby will definitely be dressed in a lot of cute outfits. 

It is now time for today's party.  Link up and HAVE FUN!
