Week 35

4 weeks and 4 days to go.....


My 30th Birthday (1 month early)

So, I left you all hanging with the set of clues two posts ago! The girls took me to Louisville, KY to celebrate my 30th. We saw the musical Jersey Boys, ate at Bistro 301, shopped, and ate some more. It was so nice to get away for my last time before Lauren arrives. These 4 girls made sure that my 30th was a special memory for me eventhough I am dreading it like the plauge. I was so touched that they went out of their way to make me feel so loved. I'm sooo incredibly lucky to have them all. Love you girls!!

Eating at Bistro 301.

They hauled to KY my favorite cupcakes and had our waiter bring them out as a surprise. I immediately started crying and laughing. They had placed on each cupcake 6 picks that displayed a word that described me. The words ranged from Eyeshadow to Inspiring. Everyone was looking at us because I was laughing and crying so hard.

Happy 1st Birthday Mia!!

Two weekends ago I traveled to Indiana to help one of my best friends throw her daughter a 1st birthday party! (This is the party I made the pink and orange topiaries for.) The party was a huge success and everything was covered in either pink or orange. Mia did a wonderful job playing hostess to the 50 plus party goers. It was such a beautiful day!

The dessert area. Even the rice krispie treats were pink and orange!

This is the banner that Michele made. Don't you just love it??
