Fireman birthday party, a pirate party, a strawberry party, and an airplane party! | CatchMyParty.com

Happy May! It's cold here in Palo Alto, weird I know, especially with school getting out in two weeks. I'm in a heavy sweater as I write this.

My four favorite parties this week are awesome. They include a fun fireman birthday party with cute puppy party favors, an airshow themed party for a boy who loves planes, a super sweet strawberry girl birthday party, and a swashbuckling Jake and the Neverland Pirates party! Browse through these, they'll make you happy.

Easy Chocolate Syrup Recipe

Easy Chocolate Syrup Recipe | CatchMyParty.com

My husband and I were recently sharing favorite food memories, and he told a story of how when he was little, and had dinner at his grandmother's house, he'd get to go into her refrigerator, pull out the chocolate syrup, and pour it all over his vanilla ice cream all by himself. He was so proud of himself and the ice cream tasted so good.

He said a lot of times it got super messy, but his grandma didn't mind. Aren't grandmas great?

My 4 Favorite Parties of the Week May 10

Happy Mother's Day! I hope your day has been a great one.

On Mother's Day, I like to reflect on what it means to me to be a mother. To me, motherhood is the job I feel most connected to. While it's not always a "fun" job, it gives my life meaning and purpose in a way I couldn't have imagined. It makes me feel connected to mothers everywhere, and to the generations of mothers who came before me. I love it because it taps into my feelings of being human and... needed. What a job, to shepherd another little person through life. I feel honored to do it (even if I sometimes find it exhausting and humbling). So to all you mothers out there, I love being part of this tribe!

Do you have Star Wars fans in your house? I do. Both my husband and daughter are crazy about Star Wars and are anxiously awaiting Star Wars: Episode VII.

I created a fun Star Wars dessert table, which I'll be sharing in a future post (with free printables), but in this post I wanted to share how to make a Stormtrooper marshmallow. This is much easier to do than it looks.
