It was my party and I didn't cry! I had a blast in fact. My cousin and his family came. Which meant our sons would get to play together. My mom, sister and niece were also there. A special bonus was my friend from high school came to join the festivities. We had my favorite dinner growing up sloppy joes and macaroni salad. My cake was a sinfully delicious chocolate cake with chocolate pudding, chocolate chips, and sour cream. The (killer) chocolate frosting was homemade. My sister rocks the chocolate cake makin' world!
I made out like a bandit. My husband bought me Rebecca Talley's new book, Altared Plans. My sis made me a scrapbook of the one and only beach trip we managed this year. My in laws gave me a gift card to Bath & Body works--which I already used! My mom gave me a gift card for Target and a box of my favorite candies! My high school gal pal gave me a gift card for DQ. Now I can be a piggy poo or I can share....hmmmm...must think this one through. My cousin's wife--Emmy--has offered to do a family photo shoot. Too cool. I can hardly wait.
It was a lot of fun and a lot of noise. I didn't have to cook or clean. Talk about pampering!
