Freaky Just Got Fabulous!

After a bit of a hiatus created by a series of very unfortunate events, Bee is back and ready to blog!  What better way to conquer the frustrations of life than to have a party!

Miss Catherine turned 8 last week and we celebrated over the weekend with a Monster High themed bash at Pump It Up! Pump It Up is an inflatable play arena...we had the whole arena filled with jumping castles, obstacle courses, and giant slides reserved just for our party guests!  It was a blast!



Coming down the ginormous slide!

(I made personalized student ID party favors for each of the guests!)


After an hour of crazy bouncing fun, we headed into to the "Creepeteria" for pizza and cupcakes!
  




My new favorite cupcake topper...the candy crown cupcake pick
These little tasty beauties were made by yours truly!


Monster High student "Lagoona Blue", daughter of the Creature from the Black Lagoon,  came by to visit our birthday girl and her guests!



We set up a birthday wishes photo matte for party guests to sign! I just purchased a blank matte from Michaels, added a few of my own decorations and voila!  I'll add a photo of Catherine with her guests, frame and hang in her room as a keepsake!



It was an amazing day filled with loving family and friends! 
Happy Birthday, my sweet girl!

I don't know what Monster High is...(we don't have cable t.v, wait, is it still called cable now that everything is digital?)

But YOU my, dear are super mom. So much for letting someone else decorate or going to the store for everything for some canned theme!
Hope everything is alright! And that party looks fabulous! Thank you for visting me during my hiatus!

Your such a wonderful bloggy friend. Though the lack of comments on my part I have been stalking you ;)

Gosh that looks like so much fun. Kids have their parties so sweet and simple. Just throw in some cake, balloons and some jumping around and they're good. Gotta miss and love those good ol' days huh! I am glad the birthday turned out so well though!

Whooo's 100?

I am! This is my 100th post!

To say I am astonished and humbled by the incredible support of my blog from fellow bloggers, friends and family would be an ginormous understatement! I am truly, deeply grateful that ya’ll stop by and visit me! Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!

(I had this scheduled to post at midnight, but for some reason, it didn't! I got up to check it about 1:30 am and discovered blogger's mischief! Sorry if you came by then!)

All righty then…do you have a cup of coffee, hot cocoa, tea, martini? How about a masseuse? You’re gonna need it! It’s my 100th post and by the time you are done reading it, you’ll probably feel as old and tired as Rip Van Winkle! You know me and my long winded rambley-ness!

Blogging is like taking a vacation to a place you never k…

A Wee Drop of Irish (or Cloudy With a Chance of B*tchy Part 2)

Happy St. Patrick's Day! How about a wee stroll down memory lane?  Thank you to everyone who messaged me about sharing this blast from the past again this year:)  (yes, Maureen...I do read your emails too!)  Even though it was originally posted in 2009, not too much has changed (says Dawn in her "I can't believe I have PMS every single year at this same time"  happy (think Pharrell singing "Happy") voice.  So grab a cup of Irish coffee, Jameson whiskey, Guinness or whatever suits your fancy on this fine St. Patrick's Day and let me share a tale of whimsy with you.  (and may the luck of the Irish be with you if you come my way today!  Don't say I didn't warn you!)   



Oops! What's she doing here again? Wasn't she just here a month ago? UGH! The nerve! We had so much "fun" last time she was here, didn't we? 

Well, since I have a full day of Irish activities planned, I guess I better be gettin' my Irish on....hmm...let's s…

Chilly Update...

I hate this disease with a passion...more on that in a moment...

First and foremost, there aren't enough words in the English language to convey my most sincere gratitude for the amazing love and support you've all shared with my family. I am completely overwhelmed and very humbled by it all. I've shared all of your comments and emails with Chilly and the kiddos. It has meant so much to us! Thank you, thank you and thank you again!

I wish I could write that Chilly is fine and coming home tomorrow. I wish I could go back to last Friday when every fiber of my being was screaming at me that Chilly was having a heart attack. I wish I would have pinned him to the ground and shoved an aspirin down his throat when he put me off about his symptoms. I wish he would have agreed to go to the ER...Sadly, I can't turn back time...

We were told today that Chilly has suffered a stroke in addition to a heart attack. These two events occured together...meaning, he had the stroke w…
