Just Something I Whipped Up

Welcome to another week of Just Something I Whipped Up. This weekend was my daughter’s birthday party and boy am I glad that’s over! I never want my kids birthdays to fall between the cracks when I’m busy working on other things so even though this party could not have come at a worse time, I was determined to do the best I could to make it special and memorable. In a perfect world I’d love to throw a beautiful backyard party with tents and a candy shoppe and balloons and all the fun stuff but since that was not happening this year we settled on a local place that had a great big room of bounce houses. Subtract the fact that the air conditioning was broken and the temperatures were in the high 90’s, it was a good time. I think the goody buckets went over pretty well. The little guests seemed genuinely happy and surprised to be getting such a good “bag” to take home.

I promise to post pictures of the buckets and the cute little birthday outfit I made later on in the week. But for now, let’s have some fun!

  1. I think that was a smart move going Bouncy House Party. The kids probably loved it and you didn’t have to clean up which is so nice after a party. Have a great week!

  2. Thank you, Diana for hosting another awesome party! I can’t wait to see the birthday pics. I too dream of princess bouncy castles for my little girl. Unfortunately her birthday is in June and we live in Phoenix AZ now where in June it’s triple digits……I’m not sure if a bouncy house can withstand that kinda heat!!

  3. I’ve had two parties during this re-do and know just what you mean.. Mine is coming up on Friday and I don’t even have time for that. 😉 REALLY!

    I’m sorry, I thought my linky thing didn’t work and tried it again… now it’s probably there about 50 times. 🙂 I’m soooo darn sorry. I haven’t done this many times before. I’m a NEWBIE in the meme department.

    Have a wonderful day.

    Warm blessings,
