Events and Birthday Themes

Cloud Nine Birthday Party Ideas

If you are looking for a whimsical and colorful theme for your child’s 9th birthday party, you might want to consider a Cloud Nine Birthday Party. This theme is inspired by the expression “on cloud nine”, which means to be extremely happy and blissful. A Cloud Nine Birthday Party is a celebration of joy, fun, and imagination, with elements of rainbows, unicorns, and clouds. We added Care Bears into our theme to make it a little extra special for our daughter.

World of Barbie Tour Experience

World of Barbie Tour was an experience that my sister and I have always dreamt of doing especially with our daughters. We use to play Barbies all the time when we were younger and now we play Barbies with my eight-year old daughter and her four-year old daughter.

The Chuck E Cheese Birthday Party Experience Of A Lifetime

Chuck E Cheese the place where a kid can be a kid. Known for their pizza parties and arcade games, you can expect loads of fun for everyone.

After attending our first Chuck E Cheese birthday party back in April, it was only natural for our daughter to fall in love with this party idea. We are big on Nikki’s birthdays and we like to give her memorable birthday parties. They always end up being a lot of work for me to do; therefore, I was definitely on board to have the party take care of itself in a sense.

Here is our personal take on the Chuck E Cheese birthday party experience.

Great Mom’s Night Out | Tully Hits Theatres

There is no denying that motherhood is one of the hardest jobs to do in the world. Often times a mother’s reality is forgotten on the sacrifices, hard work and dedication that is done every single day.

Motherhood is full of laughs, love, triumphs, challenges and at times a lot of crazy. Sometimes a night out is what we need and there is a movie hitting theatres just in time for a mom’s night out.

Paw Patrol Live! The Great Pirate Adventure

It is hard not to sing along to one of the most popular shows for kids, Paw Patrol. We have been watching Paw Patrol for over two years and if you have small children in your family then you probably have been surrounded by it everywhere you go!

So when my sister-in-law got us tickets to Paw Patrol Live! The Great Pirate Adventure, I was thrilled as I knew my 3-year-old would love it. The tickets were purchased back in January and instead of telling my overly excited daughter about the event, I waited until the day of. If I told her in advance I would have to listen to Nikki ask me EVERY single day if it was Paw Patrol day; therefore, for the sake of my sanity I waited until the day of. I know many parents can relate to this too! 🙂

Experiencing WWE NXT Through The Eyes Of A Child

We love watching and following the World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) and we have been fans for many years. You might have remembered a few articles that I have written on WWE and we can’t forget the very entertaining videos that my daughter has done in imitating the wrestlers entrances. So it is no surprise that when we heard that the WWE was returning with their ever so popular NXT live tour, we had to purchase tickets especially since it was being held at the Hershey Centre.

Toronto’s Hidden Chocolate Tour Delight

Exclusively in The Baby Spot

A little Momma Braga fact to all my amazing readers and fans is that I am a chocoholic. I have been since I could start eating chocolates and from what I can see from past photo albums, it started in my toddler years.

Therefore, when I was invited through The Baby Spot to attend a Chocolate Tour in Toronto by Tasty Tours, I just couldn’t say no! I was so excited about the tour that for weeks that is all I could talk about. I had some family members who even giggled and thought how perfect this tour was for me and I couldn’t agree more! 😉

The WWE Experience…Another First for our Family

The music starts to play and out comes Enzo Amore and Big Cass to their high energy entrance. The crowd goes wild as Enzo and Big Cass start their opening monologue. And you can’t help but follow along with repeating their catchphrases such as “How you Doin’?” and “You Can’t Teach That.” So it is no wonder why people and families are intrigued by WWE wrestling as their sports entertainment go to.

Our family is a WWE family in the truest sense of the word as we watch every episode week after week, and attend as many WWE events in our area as possible. It wouldn’t be out of the norm to even catch us using a WWE catchphrase every now and then.

Nikki’s First Live Event

My husband and I are wrestling fans, but more specifically, World Wrestling Entertainment (WWE) fans. We watch WWE Raw and Smackdown every week on TV (in case you do not know, these are the regular shows that they air) and Nikki really enjoys watching it too. However, she is not watching the entertainment of wrestling but she is watching the entrances that each wrestler has to get inside the ring. The colours, music, sounds, and the bigger than life characters are all what interests her to the TV. Naturally, when we heard that the WWE was coming to Toronto for their Holiday Live Tour Event, we knew we had to take her.
