Weezy Cupcakes & Minnie Galore

It happened.


I blinked and she turned two. My little sweetheart. Our little Weezy girl.


The one who hates when her hands get dirty and loves to cuddle more than anyone I’ve ever met.


The one who’s smile lights up a room and who’s dance moves make everyone get up and start shakin’.


{she wasn’t as smiley on her birthday this year. All she wanted was her mommy}

Vanilla Bean Cupcake Frosted

We decided to do a small party this year with JUST immediate family (which still ended up being 18 people!)

We BBQed and got together in the clubhouse at my condo–this is my yoga room, which I transformed into a Minnie wonderland for the Weez.


She finally opened up at the end, but I think it was overwhelming for her–especially since we were all getting over being sick



The highlight of the day:

Vanilla Bean Cupcapes

Obviously, this is not a health food—but I say it’s MUCH better when you make it yourself! You can hand-pick the best quality ingredients, avoid GMO’s and choose organic when necessary!

And the best part to top it off…..






E had her birthday party in “school” on Friday. I made healthy, allergy-friendly cupcakes for her classmates! Much to my surprise all of the kids loved them, from what I heard! I whipped up a delicious frosting for the top, since I was unsure of how buckwheat banana sunbutter muffins would go over. The cool thing, however, is how they encourage parents to bring in healthy alternatives for cakes and cookies.

So here’s how I made it healthy, yet still fun for the kids!

E School

You can see here again how she figured out not to use her fingers—she hates getting her hands dirty. Just like her daddy.


Banana Sunbutter Muffins

Add “frosting” right before serving.


I send these brownies in for the teachers and I think they appreciated the chocolate Winking smile

Now….time for a SUGAR DETOX!

Aaaand to prove I am still a fitness blog—here’s how I started that process after all the cupcake eating this weekend:

I actually went for a run in the most PERFECT weather on Sunday:

Along with some yoga sweat and handstand time

Special shouts to Ari who’s Minnie birthday blows anyone else’s away. I wish I had the time and talent to pull it off like you did, girl! Thanks for the inspiration!

And to Princess Emma Couture for the BEAUTIFUL hand made dress for Ella! Thank you for speeding up my order and shipping it lightning fast! It was worth every penny!

I wish I could post more photos for you all but my software is being really weird and it’s like 1,000 times more work to edit the photos and upload them. I need help! Plus, E was on my lap for 90% of her party so I didn’t get a chance to take all of the photos that I wanted to of the smaller details.It’s all good though. The day was about her all in all!

Keep your eyes peeled because I plan to post again this week—and actually about fitness/nutrition.

Talk Soon!

Thanks, Ari! Yea I think it’s just a lot for them–and everyone fussing over them. I just can’t believe how quickly time has gone. I remember when you FIRST posted about your Minnie party! Nuts!
