A Posh Mom Must

Before I became a "Posh Mom" I was a Kindergarten Teacher and as the old saying goes "Once a teacher always a teacher"! With that said, I have found the single most exciting back to school find for both the boys and ME! The new lunch Containers at Easylunchboxes.com have made packing my preschoolers lunch a SNAP!!! Both the teacher and mommy in me LOVE the fact that my little guys have only ONE item to open in their lunch box!! No more little baggies and digging around to see what to open next!! They are a perfect fit for little lunch boxes!!!

Love Love Love

I get excited over a lot of things; birthdays, parties, clothes, a good cup of coffee, a cupcake on tuesday, the list goes on and on. HOWEVER I currently love, love, love 

Juicy Couture Couture Roll on Perfume.

This is the perfect size of perfume. It fits neatly in your makeup bag and is allowed by the airlines. Everyone needs one!!! 

Sophie's Spa Party

What to do what to do for my soon to be seven year old daughter, Sophie's, birthday.
 Ahhh a Spa Party!! Perfect. First step, ideas. Lets see what I can come up with.......

Facial masks for sure. Kind? Chocolate.
Nail Polish Station,of course. 
Craft - Make ribbon wrapped flip flops

On to Kim at TomKat for party colors and of course her lovely cupcake toppers. After a quick email she sent me this as her color palate inspiration. This is for a Colin Cowie Barbie Party. How wonderful are those colors?  Hot pink and a cool pool blue, can't go wrong.

Time to get started. 

We are going to throw the party in the dinning room and kitchen. Decorations!
Absolutely doing the darling streamers that I saw on HowDoesShe?. I have been waiting for the perfect time to use these.

Poms are a must, just like for Tallie's Party.

Dinosaur Party Tabletop Idea

Construction Party

Little boys and their love of trucks!!! For Tal's 2nd Birthday he had a construction themed party! When you look at these photos you are probably going to think what I am thinking! I should do what Ariana does and have a "real" photographer at my party!!

Birthday Fever strikes the Kanistras house!

Nelson's "Jungle Animal" 1st Birthday Party

With Tal's 5th Birthday right around the corner, both boys are having major birthday fever! Mommy on the other hand is finding it a little hard to swallow that my little guy will be turning 5! So, with the first week of pre-school coming to an end why not make it even more sappy and look back at pictures of the boys first birthdays! I would love to post pictures of Tal's 1st birthday...BUT...I was 4 months pregnant with Nelson AND enjoying morning/noon/night sickness AND we have not been able to find any pictures of his 1st birthday! So, this one is for Nelson!

Real grass covered the table and the cupcakes sat on graham cracker crumbs

The Birthday Boy
Each child got to take home a "jungle animal" lunch box and placemat custom made by Express Signs and Graphics in Orlando.


Best Carmel Corn EVER!

We are getting ready for a long weekend in sunny San Diego and I was trying to think of what to bring the kiddos to snack on while at the beach and remembered the carmel corn for Tallie's party.
