THE Party

I'm so excited!

The place is booked, the invites are in. All that's left is addressing the invites, slapping stamps on the envelopes and dropping them in the mail. And order a cake. And that's really about it. Well, and decide what pizza's to serve. Ok now that's really about it. For real.

I can't even convey how stinkin' happy this makes me feel... like a huge weight has been lifted off my shoulders... like I can exhale.


So.. check it:

the decor where THE party will be held (yes, the walls, et al are graffiti-ized- who needs streamers and shit?)
the food that will be served at THE party
(yes, friends, that's CHICAGO STYLE deep dish pizza- though there will also be thin crust and pan crust available as well)

ooooo unlimited pop will be available at THE party (yes, even clear pop- and water, too!)

the Costco cake that will be served at THE party (yes, with that design but with my kid's info)

I can't believe that in one month from today, a photographer will be coming to the house to shoot my Lovie for her 1st birthday pictures... 11 days before she turns ONE... 14 days before THE party of the year.


I'm so glad to have all this taken care of already. It's such a relief not to have to spend the next 40 something days stressed over every little tiny thing.  It's costing us a couple extra pennies to do this outside, but the fact that we won't have to worry about setup or cleanup... priceless, to me.  Because it means we get more time with the love of our lives... who'll be ONE... in 42 days.


  1. This party is gonna be AWESOME!!!

  2. That deep dish pizza has my mouth watering! Our babies are growing up so fast!

  3. I am so impressed that you are done and ready to go! I haven't even really tought about it for more than a minute or two....

  4. It looks like it is going to be a great party! You're so smart for not having it at home. We had Rylie's first birthday party at home and that is the LAST birthday party we will have at home. (Well, until she is older and the sleepovers start.) It is so much easier to let someone else clean up all the mess.


  5. An attention-grabbing dialogue is price comment.


speak your mind.
