Today I Am Wrapping Things Up.

I decided that since this blog is supposed to be what I did today, I'd better get one more post in so it doesn't turn into what I did this week (only one other post besides this one). 


I don't know why, but I loooooooooooooooooooove throwing huge birthday bashes for my girls.  I put more time and effort into them then I do for holidays (except Christmas).  I just think birthdays are so super fun and picking a theme totally thrills me!

Here's the inspiration for Britt's party (which happens to be tomorrow, hence the wrapping things up):

This week, I've been sewing a birthday dress for Britt, making a bunting/flag banner, sewing gnome hats, putting together 40+ favor bags, e-mailing back and forth with my husband (graphic designer) over the decor, paper toy activities, menu plan, and cupcake toppers, and baking cupcakes and pound cake. 

So, this is why I've been remiss in my posting.  That and moving.  I WILL be a more regular poster and blog reader as soon as we're settled into our new place.

Have a fun time with her day! It sounds like a great theme!

I've made shirts for the boys on zazzle.com for their birthdays. It was fun. I should probably do that again some time.

You are super, super efficient! Imagine having to prepare for a huge birthday party and packing for the move not to mention having to look after a baby and 2 small children, you still manage to squeeze in a post now and then. Truly super! :)
