Before I make a come back with a real post (I am sooo behind and super stinkin' tired) I need to do a "stream of consciousness" post. Be patient with me-I am wading through hundreds of photos from Emma's first birthday party. :D It was a blast. Lots of pictures to come. On another note, does anyone know how to link a picasa album to the blog? That would save me A LOT of uploading-and if you actually cared to look at all of them, you could. Please leave me some info if you know.
On to the randomness:
*I made sugar cookies for Emma's party favors-I just rolled out Pillsbury sugar cookie dough. Six rolls. At 10:00 pm. My MIL helped me-thank God. We cut out 50 cupcake shapes and 50 number 1's. Then we baked them. And, apparently I don't "bake" often, cause the cupcake ones grew to enormous proportions. I swear, I will post a picture soon just of that so you can laugh. They were HUGE. And they didn't really look like cupcakes after baking. They looked like trees.
*I went to the doctor on Thursday because I think I may have Lyme Disease. Don't even get me started on this, but I did find a tick on my stomach in May. And now I have some random Lyme symptoms. So, I made an appt for 2:30 and didn't leave there until 5:10. I had a ton of bloodwork done and am waiting for the results. Which leads me to my next point.
*My friend Jill was going to teach me how to ice the sugar cookies. But, I was super late (a little too late) to create icing and all that jazz. I mean, she had to deal with dinner and her kids and all that. So, she offered to do it for me that night. She texted me at 11:00 and said she had just finished. It was awful and so hard-she made some kind of special icing that dries shiny and hard. It was like mixing glue and she was having to work super hard to finish. Needless to say, I appreciate her SO MUCH! She also made Emma's cupcakes (48 of them) and her precious strawberry cupcake smashcake. xoxoxox
*My friend Shawna made Emma a precious birthday banner out of pink, green, and brown felt. It is adorable!
*I made a brisket in the slow cooker on Thursday night. It was used to make brisket sandwiches. I got it from the Food Network magazine and am too lazy to look it up.
*School starts on Monday. I have to work all week to get my self ready.
*The party prep for Emma's party was ridonkulous. My sister and I worked ALL day while FeFe and Poppy entertained/took Emma out. Then, they came home and FeFe helped us all day and night while Poppy was on baby duty. They didn't leave till 11. Major dedication-thank you!!!
*FeFe brought Emma her first baby stroller. She has been pushing that joker around non stop. With a little baby doll in it. Tooo cute for words! Pics to follow.
*I am getting my iPhone on Saturday! Yay to the yay!
*I just finished watching RHONJ-the Danielle hair episode-can I just say A)Danielle is drama and B)Ashley is tacky and C)That whole show is a total hot MESS!
*I want a DVR-yes, I know! We do not have one....................yet.
*My bestie LG had Fenn on July 28th. That joker weighed in at 9 pounds, 9.5 ounces! Pray for her body. Ya know?
*I am passing out now. Good day sir.
I will be back for LOADS of picture updates and a detailed account of the birthday party. I am working on pre planning stuff this week and am swamped!
