Bucket List - Family Friendly Events in Northeast Ohio 
The bucket list calendar is a list of fun things we would like to do in Northeast Ohio if we had unlimited time and money. Some are free, most are not, and be sure to call all events prior to attending, just in case I have some information wrong or it was canceled.

Finding the Sweet at b.a. Sweetie Candy + Soda Shoppe

When Mally's is in your neighborhood, it's hard to justify a trip to any other candy place.

As I was planning RD's superhero birthday party, I wanted more than chocolate. Also, my soon-to-be-seven-year-old does not like chocolate.

Not finding exactly what I wanted at traditional stores, we ventured out to b.a. Sweetie


This nirvana of candy started in the 1950's on the east side and was home to various locations up and down Brookpark Rd. I wish I captured the look on their faces when they first came in. I can't believe that I've never been. (this is not a paid or sponsored post)

My New Super Power! Sewing Reversible (Superhero) Headbands


I have a love/hate relationship with my sewing machine.

When the kids were little, I made blankets and bibs for them. I thought my sewing adventures were over. But, I decided to make one more blanket to discover that I had lost the cord of sewing machine. I took it as a sign. I also had to hand sew a blanket, but that's another story.

Fast forward several years and my motivation to sew returned.

Out of frustration at the cost of headbands my kid likes, I broke down and bought a cord to my sewing machine. And, discovered all the cool fabric on Etsy.

Part of my motivation is her upcoming birthday. She is having a superhero party and I thought it would be fun to wear a Supergirl headband.

I found the perfect fabric! And, if I didn't screw it up, I could make enough for her best friends.


Before I even cut into the cool fabric, I made a bunch of headbands practicing.
