Let the magic, sparkly, fantastic birthday countdown begin! It’s T-minus two weeks and counting till the balloon and frosting encrusted eructation of Sprinkels's, ALL HALLOWED BE HER NAME, first birthday party! Let the insanity… BEGIN!
Lets see... I’ll need:
Cupcakes – Oh gawd. I need a theme. I need a theme! What does she like… um… measuring spoons? No. Shoes…. Nah. She only likes those for their flavor and consistency. Besides, she prefers flip flops and where would I find a "Summer Beach Party" theme at this time of year? Could I do a “Dust Bunny and Dead Flies” theme because she is always excited to find those. Nothing too fancy, I guess, as she is just going to go Gollum on them anyway.
"Give us the Cupcakes, my precious. We wants them... We wants them..."
Decorations – Must go with theme. Crap. Those little Target Owls are cute but I doubt she would know what they are. Those would SOOOOO be for Mommy. Ug... no Dora. I detest Dora. WHY IS EVERYTHING F*CK!NG DORA?!?!?!? Dora makes me want to stop eating Mexican food… which is serious because I could EAT MY OWN WEIGHT in chorizo. Lady bugs? Well… she does like to eat them….
Party food – Yeek! Okay, here's the ish. Half of my family is allergic to beef. Not just “Ride home with the windows down” allergic either, like, hamburger = ambulance ride to the ER, kind of allergic. Cows could kill a b*tch in my genetic area code. Okay… hot dogs? The pork and chicken ones shouldn't prove too deadly… I hope. Note to self: Get Epi-Pens. And put Vanderbilt on speed dial.
Presents – Plastic bugs?
*sigh* I should have started planning in July....
