A Monster Bash!

I am proud to say that we survived the Birthday Party weekend.... and I feel like we did it with flying colors!

Sydney had her big Monster Bash last Saturday and we all had so much fun! The kids all hung out in the balloons while the parents had the chance to catch up. Sydney was the center of attention in her cute birthday outfit and she was spoiled rotten by all of her guests.

As difficult as it was to plan the party while working full time, I have so much fun doing it. My friend Conni took one look at the food table and said "it looks like Pinterest threw up on the table!" I agree.... i got a little but out of control with my Pinterest obsession. It was just so much fun to finally use some of the great ideas on the site!
