Tide Dry Cleaners invited us to preview their new store on 10010 W. Sahara Avenue (near Downtown Summerlin). We learned about their seven point inspection process and partnership with GreenEarth® Cleaning to offer a patented dry cleaning process which gently cleans clothing and extends garment life without harsh chemicals. We witnessed their superb customer service first-hand and couldn't believe the attention to detail - doggy snacks for fur babies and individual a/c hoses placed throughout their workplace for the comfort of their employees (pictured below).
Did I mention the convenience of drive-thru concierge services and 24-hour pick-up/drop-off with Tide Dry Cleaners Anytime kiosk and drop-box (pictured below)? We love the convenience - running a business and household is demanding!!
The GRAND OPENING is this Saturday, May 16th - be sure to stop by, the first two garments you bring in will be cleaned for FREE!

In March we celebrated a Batman Batgirl birthday party! Please forgive me for just now blogging about it in May. Better late than never! In my family we are usually late. I told my husband I was going to get him a shirt that says "Will most likely be late, because of who I am as a person."
The party was a success! They had an amazing time and were surrounded my so many friend's and loved ones. We used Celebrate Kids for the first time this year through a Groupon special! They were fantastic! They arrived early, the bouncer was clean, and they set up the carnival games for us as well! We opted for the Spin for a Prize game, and the Skee Ball game. Both were a big hit at the party!
Our cake was a custom order from Smith's! We use them every year and they haven't disappointed us yet! Next year I probably won't get black icing, that made for some interesting tongue colors!
This year I really just enjoyed being present! I didn't stress about details, I didn't spread myself thin, and I took absolutely no pictures! I'm usually a photo fanatic but this year I was so busy enjoying that I just didn't take any. Luckily my sister, husband, and close friends took quite a few for us to scrapbook and look back on later.
My favorite craft of the party were the goody bags we hand made! My daughter's dad was quite a big help in the execution of the goody bags. Here is a photo of the final product!
To complete this craft I purchased black good bags from Michael's, printed out Batman logos from Google Images, Free handed a belt and cape, and used hot glue to attach them to the bags. Very inexpensive!
Sophia's dad actually started to free hand the back drop for our Batman photo wall and then he got strep throat! So sad! My sister and best friend Brittney came to the rescue and finished it the morning of the party. My son has it hanging in his room now!
Another inexpensive decorating tip that we used was to purchase scrapbook paper from Michael's! Normally about $20 it was on sale for half off! Making the entire book only ten dollars! This is what I used to decorate or sliding glass door, make a sign for the gifts table, and decorate our pantry door. We still have plenty left over so when I finally actually catch up on my scrap booking, I'm about 4 years behind, I can use this paper for their party!
Incorporating Batgirl into the party was somewhat difficult! She is not as popular for party decor. Luckily through Amazon I did find Girl's Justice League themed items. We purchased the banner, and the goody bag kit from there. We also ordered Superhero bracelets from Amazon.
The companies we used were:
Stay tuned for the blog post for my niece's Home inspired Birthday!
We had the ultimate pleasure of being invited to a Gelato tasting at Gelato Messina in Downtown Summerlin. The atmosphere was relaxing, inviting, kid friendly, clean, and had amazing decor. We were greeted by the Operations Manager Victoria who is from Australia. She was absolutely amazing! We felt so welcome!
Gelato Messina originated in Australia in 2002. All of their ingredients are raw and every bit of Gelato is freshly made behind a glass window where you can watch the magic happen! Each Gelato Messina has a custom painted wall mural by Australian Artist, who now lives in New York, Jeremyville. Each mural is customized to it's location and the Las Vegas mural is complete with a version of Elvis.
Our kids were intrigued and enjoyed looking around and sitting on the comfortable round leather couches. The Gelato was phenomenal, nothing I've ever had even comes close to what we tasted! My favorites were the Dulce De Leche, Apple Pie, Coconut & Lychee, and Pistachio to name a few! Our kids very much enjoyed the Chocolate Fondant and the Chocolate Chip.
Not only do they specialize in Gelato they also make cake! We know where we are going the next time we need a cake for anything! The prices are extremely reasonable considering that they only use the freshest ingredients! Each week there are new specials! One special currently showcased is called Knights in Nepal, 100% of the proceeds benefit those in Nepal affected by the recent earthquake. Another current special is the Cinco De Mayo special which was amazing!!
We can't wait to go back and eat more Gelato!
We LOVE Downtown Summerlin!
