Birthdays are kind of a big deal for me.
So, this year, even though it’s not a milestone birthday, I threw myself (yep) a Rainbows & Unicorns pool party (my birthday is in the middle of summer).
First, I started a Pinterest board.
Unicorn door hanger, $3 Target Dollar Spot
aka Jelly beans
Unicorn Bathing Suits, Target
1) Finding Unicorn/ Rainbow food that’s not candy/ donuts/ cake/ sweets is REALLY HARD! Here’s what I came up with:
Unicorn Horn Pasta Salad
Crescent Dog Twists
Unicorn Popcorn (still had some candy drizzled on top)
Crescent Rolls with chicken salad
Unicorn Droppings (aka jelly beans)
Unicorn Farts were a huge hit with everyone at the party (cotton candy)
Unicorn Bacon was Airheads Rainbow Sour Belts
Rice Krispie Treats with Fruity Pebbles (LOVED this!)
As most of you know, I’m a new chicken mommy. We got 5 baby chicks for our girls (OK, they were for me!) on Easter.
These are them as babies:
They stayed in a small rabbit cage until they were about 3-4 months old and it was getting a little crowded in there:
Now, they live in their deluxe coop outside full time.
In Florida. In summer.
The past few weeks have been brutal here (with real feel temperatures in the 100s- NOT KIDDING)
So, I decided to whip up some treats for them to keep them cool.
I took some corn and shucked it off the cob.
I put it in the bottom of a silicone tray (I think it’s supposed to be used for brownies lol) and topped it with water.
Then, I freezed them and got frozen corn treats for our girls! (Yes, they’re all girls now!)
*side note: we recently “traded” out our rooster for another hen. Meet Dory:
They ate them right up!
Bonus: Our newest girl decided to lay eggs the day after I gave her these treats! Coincidence? I think not!
I never thought I’d grow up to be that crazy chicken lady, but here I am, killin’ it:
