Hello Kitty Cake

My Kiddo turned 9 this week (sniff sniff, wipe tear). She is not your average little girl. I love that about her. She is so NOT a princess type and the only “Barbie” she likes are those weird Monster High dolls. She seriously said when she first saw them “now that’s my kinda doll”!  She […]
