A few posts ago, I mentioned I was in panic mode and I was running out of weeks. So, I got my butt in gear and got things checked off my list.
First, I contacted Becca at Jumping Jax Designs to create Henry's Birthday invite. She of course with her speedy service created the most amazing invite for Henry's party!
If you ever need any kind of custom card or blog design, Becca is your lady. She is amazing and quick. I give her an idea and a few days later, I have exactly what I am looking for. Seriously, check out her site and all her great work!
Yes, I am aware the party is two months away but why not get this knocked off my list. I also contacted the cake lady and a guy to do balloon animals and face painting. Just because you have a winter Birthday and you can't have an outdoor bounce house, doesn't mean you can't have fun!
I was hoping to do a shark party but Henry asked for a Mickey party, so I ran with it. I'm in the process of making the banner and getting the favor tags made too. Becca will take care of the Thank you notes and the cupcake toppers for the family party on the 31st.
Next on my to do list, get the nursery into shape. We had bits and pieces all over. A changing table in the garage that needed to be spray painted and curtains that needed to be hung. Charlie spray painted the changing table, Friday night and we brought it up to the room on Saturday. He also was tired of me bothering him about the curtains so he hung those for me. We ended up moving some furniture around but I am in love!
Just have to hang pictures and work on some of the odds and ends. So, happy with how the room came out. It is a far cry from the yellow and grey room I originally wanted and I have to say I am glad Charlie talked me out of it.
Finally, last night, I may or may not have stuffed the envelopes and put our address on my Christmas cards. Becca created those for me too and again they turned out amazing! Not going to post one here because that would ruin the surprise.
I feel so much better about everything that we have going on and really feel that I got things under control. Vacation is two days away and I am ready, so ready!
