I am usually an early poster, but today was a busy one! Megan turns 9 on Tuesday but birthday weekend festivities kicked off today. Here's how the day unfolded:
-Woke up around 6 am and Megan woke up right around the same time. I worked on her birthday party favor tags, showered, had breakfast, and took Megan to her first of two horseback riding lessons this weekend.
-Came home and went to pick up her birthday party cupcakes and chocolate covered Oreos for the party later in the day.
-Took Megan to the salon to get her hair blown out and curled (the curls did not last long.....bad hair weather with rain, wind and and snow today)
-Came home to get Megan lunch then ran out again to do Girl Scout banking and grab lunch (Chinese soup and steamed vegetable dumplings)
-Finished the goody bags and negotiated with Megan on her birthday outfit.
-Got my dog's food and belongings together for his drop off (with my son- who didn't need anything prepared) at my parent's house. They were watching Alex and Teddy during Megan's birthday party.
-Put everything in the car, headed to my mom's and then Cool Crafts for Megan's party.
-The party consisted of 14 girls plus Megan. The girls made a stuffed animal and dressed it in clothes. They had pizza, a dance party and the cupcakes I brought.
-At home, Megan opened her gifts and I wrote them all down.
-We went back out to get Alex and Teddy from my mom's house.
Girls definitely want to have fun but moms? They need a nap.
