Monsters University Disco Ball Candied Apples

Monster's University Gawk

I don’t know about you, but we’ve been waiting and waiting to see Monsters University ever since the trailers first came out for it’s theater release.  We haven’t attempted a movie theater trip with the boys yet, and to be honest, it’s way easier to throw on a movie at home.  I spend less buying the movie at the store than buying 2 adult and 2 kid tickets, not to mention

Triple Pineapple Luau Cake

Triple Pineapple Luau Cake | White Lights on Wednesday

A couple months ago my friend Vina asked me to make her daughter’s birthday cake.  She wanted pineapple and it was a luau themed party.  That’s all the info I got.  Then Tayun (Vina’s daughter) sent me cake idea pictures.  I almost died.  One was a two-tier fondant covered cake with gum paste, hand painted orchids.  Another was white fondant with a surfer made from modeling chocolate.  Ummm…what did Vina tell

Super Hero Banana Bites


Today is recipe 3 out of 4 from Otto’s birthday party.  These banana bites were really fun to make and can be used in so many different ways.   If you hadn’t noticed we did a super hero theme for the party.  I found these superhero posters online and knew they would make great decorations.   I found some great superhero masks for sale on Etsy at Bessie Pooh.  Pick

The weather has finally changed here. It’s rainy and cold (Arizona cold, not New York cold) and time for sweaters…yippee! I know I said I’d almost never mention the weather, but I am going somewhere with this. My favorite colder weather activity is baking. Even if it means I end up eating all the cookies myself because Mike’s sweet tooth is on hiatus. I’ve been putting together my Thanksgiving menu

Hi Everyone! Welcome to Wednesday Whatsits. ———- Okay.  As you read this I’m dealing with a major situation. There is a scorpion in my dishwasher.   It’s hiding under the bottom rack so I can’t get to it. Mike’s not home.  I’m out of Everclear to pour on it (they sting themselves to death if you douse them in Everclear).  And I’m freaking out it’s going to crawl out and

Oh So Sweet Krispie Treats & 17 Valentine’s Day Ideas


I have a rule that I don’t start getting into a holiday until the month it’s in…unless it’s New Year’s…that gets the week after Christmas.  But I’m getting this out of the way so I don’t have to deal with it anymore.  I’m not really all that into Valentine’s Day.  I’ve been at work for so many years on February 14th, waiting on couples and groups of couples, that I’d rather

25 Kid-Friendly Christmas Activities

~25 Kid-Friendly Christmas Activities-Square

This year, Christmas season has been so amazing with the littles.  They’re really into the lights, snow (which we don’t get), and Christmas trees.  I wanted to find some fun projects for us to decorate the house and tree, and a fun Christmas tree too.  The projects in the list can either be done by the kiddos alone, or with some parental help – but always with supervision.  Five words:
