I didn't do much blogging last week because we were so busy around here. Most nights I crashed about the time Andrew went to bed which was between 9 and 10. It was a good kind of busy though and it helped get me out of the funk I've been in for the past few weeks or so. There was a birthday party, date night, Valentine's Day party at the park, shopping excursions to pick up craft supplies for Valentine's projects for Daddy, making said craft projects for Daddy and an impromptu trip to the library.
Last Saturday night (not last night), I stayed up till 2 am (which technically would make it early last Sunday morning) making cupcakes for Lily's friend Emilie's 3rd birthday party. The party had a bug theme. I ran with it and had a ton of fun decorating the cupcakes with ants, caterpillars, spiders and whatnot. And getting a sugar rush from sampling all of the candy...
Its so hard to believe Emilie is already 3. She's only 4.5 months older than Lily. Sigh.
Emilie's mom Sunny is extremely creative when it comes to planning parties. Oh the decorations! I'm talking paper mache bees and ants and butterflies made out of wire and stockings and spray painted. And the food. Honestly, only pictures can describe how adorable it all was.
So here ya go.
The woman is a genius I tell you.
^^Hunting for bugs. Luckily they were the plastic kind.

Happy Birthday Emilie!
