Planning a birthday bash is hard work...

and I really even started yet.

So far, I've sent out the invites (sorry for the crappy photo)

And got the birthday outfits.

I still need to:
  • Get decorations, utensils and plates/napkins
  • Decide on menu
  • Go grocery shopping
  • Get party bag items
  • Make Party bags
  • Buy and wrap the gifts from my mom and dad
  • Buy and wrap the gifts that are from us
  • Order cakes

On Friday, the day before, we will get all the tables out, cleaned and ready then on Sat, we will decorate. Not sure when we will do the rest. I have three weeks but I can't do all the errands with the girls by myself and hubby only has Sat and Tuesdays to help. I think it will all go as planned, I'm just stressin' it.

Monday, I've decided to start my diet again. I see a bit of the weight creeping back slowly and we can't have that. My goal is to lose all this weight by next summer, but I'm going to make short 20lb goals until I make it. I've decided to take photos but not show anyone until after the weight is gone.

That is all that is on my mind right now, I'm sure I'll think of more later :)

Oh yeah, I forgot..on Tuesday (just passed) I turned 30. I kept complaining to my grandmother that I didn't want to be 30. I wanted to stay 29 and she reminded me of my dads cousin Anthony who, at 29, after complaining he didn't want to turn 30, was killed in a car accident before his birthday "so he will forever be 29". I never met him but it makes me sad. So I am very happy that I am 30, that I've gotten 30 years and that I have more time with my precious girls...even if I do feel old right now haha.

Happy Birthday! I had a hard time with turning 30, too:-). I am loving reading about your girls' birthday party. I have a party to plan for Hadley soon and need all the guidance I can get!

Happy Birthday to you!! And good luck with the party planning. I remember how stressed I was planning Andrew's, but no one really cared that everything wasn't absolutely perfect. Your guests will be too busy fawning over your beautiful girls!

We're planning a party, too and I don't know how I'm going to get it all done!! Love the cute party outfits.

I hear you on the diet stuff. I still have 40 lbs to lose and it's so depressing.

30 is GREAT! Happy Bday to you!
