Hey guess what? I'm 21 weeks today! Grow baby Reid grow!
My 22 week check up is next week....we finally get to start measuring...oooh ahhhh haha! Just another stage that you're getting closer!
But..............baby girl turns 2 this Sunday! I can't believe how much time has flown by! 2....she's going to be 2! wowowowow! Here is a picture from her last birthday when my baby was 1! Sniff Sniff (we did the pink ducky theme)
So we are keeping it simple and small again and just invited a few of her neighborhood playmate friends! We thought a different kind of invitation was in the works for her
"CUPCAKE" theme party!
I'm basing the colors of the party on the outfit we ordered off of Etsy. Ok my MIL the great momma that she is paid for it. We ordered it back in August. August 18th to be exact. Guess what? I've yet to receive it and I'm freaking out. Her feedback looked terrific...said out of 400+ she was 99%. I guess I should have looked at why it wasn't 100. I contacted her on Sept 9th asking how the order was coming. She didn't get back to me until the 14th and said it was shipping that week. Well today is the 22nd and still nothing. I contacted her on Monday and said I was getting a little worried since her party is on Saturday and I really wanted to do pictures before. She got back to me later that night and said not to worry (again). Well I'm a bit miffed. I mean I ordered it back in Aug hoping it would be here way before now. UGH! So here is what the outfit is supposed to be. Surely it doesn't take that long...for pete's sake it could possibly only take a few hours???
Please arrive soon!!!
CAN YOU SAY PRETTY TICKED? (don't deal with her... I realized now I'm not alone w/the forever to send the order out issue) I hate to say bad things about Etsy b/c I adore the idea of other Mom's sewing one of a kind creations...I've never ever had issues before now.
soooo here are the invites I based the outfit off of....
I took a white box and filled it with tissue and different 'cupcakes' with the information on them. Sort of like an assortment of goodies, but yet info of the party! They were fun, quick, and easy to create and loved seeing the friend's faces at getting a hand delivered box of 'faux' goodies!
I've been busy making decorations .....I'm also baking about 3 different kinds of cupcakes to eat. I figure I'll freeze the rest for 'special after school snacks' for the big kids. Goodness knows we can't eat 72 cupcakes this weekend! :o) Stay tuned for more.....
