GOOD MORNING!!! Happy Thursday...we are 1 day closer to F R I D A Y! That makes me very happy. I am meeting my girlfriend Pamela for dinner/drinks tonight in VB. Can't wait. Girl Time is the best. Looking forward to getting together with her. I've known Pamela since we were 5 years old. Love having friendships that span the years. Awesome! Here's Pamela (green blouse) in Miami celebrating her 30th Birthday last year with a group of our friends. Can you spot me?
Also awesome - MAGGIE IS TURNING 2! Can you believe my little girl is 2.
CRAZY! I still remember being pregnant & eating LAYS Potato Chips in bulk. I LOVE SALT! If you gave me a bag of chips & a box of cookies...I would eat the chips. Definitely a salt over sweet girl.
ANYWAY - Maggie is turning 2 March 10th and I am in Party Planning Mode. I've got a list of food I need to order (Pollard's Chicken Fingers!) and a list of supplies I need to buy. We are having the party at my InLaws house in Norfolk. About 50 parents/kids....I like to throw a party. HA! I need to order cupcakes too. Party favors are these cute little sugar cookies I found on ETSY. I used the same lady last year. LOVE! They were delicious. Here's a pic:
As for entertainment - I do not disappoint the toddlers!!! My goal is make them happy...and TIRED! They need to stay busy at a Birthday party. Last year I had BIRDIE'S RENTALS come set up an inflatable Bounce House outside in the backyard...and I looooved them so much - I am using them again. It was awesome! The highlight of the party! They set up everything...and the Bounce House is clean as a whistle! No holes. No stains. It was fantastic! Every Mom/Dad/Grandma was asking me "Who did I rent from"?! Well the secret is out...it's BIRDIE'S!! I highly recommend them for your next party/event/school carnival. CLICK HERE to see the Bounce House I ordered last year. I am getting the same model this year because it is very "Toddler Friendly".
We are also adding a PONY to the party this year. I told you...I love throwing Birthday parties! Seriously - some of my BEST childhood memories are the Birthday Parties my parents threw me! So I have a pony coming to give pony rides to the kids from The Teeny Tiny Farm. I know they will LOVE it!!! Maggie is definitely at the age where she will ride a pony! I can't wait. There will be some older kids at the party too...and I know they will enjoy it. Now let's just hope we have SUNSHINE!!! PLEASE!!
Anyone have a place they suggest ordering a cake from? Let me know! I would love to hear Feedback about local bakeries you suggest. Email me WooWoo@POINTRADIO.com THANKS!!! Off to start buying the supplies...here's how you save money: GO TO THE DOLLAR STORE!! HA! A bag of 100 forks for $1! That's my kind of bargain. Save money honey!
