Birthday Bash

The birthday bash was so much fun last night! This morning (after only 4 1/2 hours of sleep) I feel so blessed to have such thoughtful and wonderful friends. I’m still gathering pictures of the party from Rochelle and Katri, but in the meantime here are some of the things I’ve been working on this week to get ready for the party.

Rochelle and I filled a pinata with jewelry, book marks, and lots of yummies! Here are the goodie bags I made to put their loot in. (The label is the first pic on this post.)

I made some “Shoot Yeah!” key chains out of shrinky-dinks to go into the pinata. For those of you who haven’t had a verbal conversation with me, I say that a lot. 😉
I also made these beaded bookmarks. They are so easy and fun to make. I always feel so girly and cute when I’m reading a book with a fun bookmark. I’ve put the instructions on how to make these on ExecutiveHomemaker.com, click here. They make great gifts and are fun to add to a lesson hand out.

Rochelle and I are proud of our age and decided to own it! 😉
Stay Tuned …

  1. I have never really had a big B-day bash before. My bday is so close to Christmas people are too poor, too tired and too busy. Maybe I should start celebrating it in the summer:)

    You are so creative!!

    I love that you say “shoot yeah”.

  2. LOVE it! How fun!! And creative (no surprise there). Wish I could’ve been there to join in on the fun.
    BTW finally I finished the tags for your boys and they are getting sent. Sorry for the delay.
    Can’t wait to see more pics. And I agree with someone on some comment that asked, “do you EVER take a bad picture??” You and Rochelle look fabulous!

  3. oh my gosh how cute is that?! well happy birthday again and again! love the shirts !and the prizes in the pinata!

  4. How fun is that throwing your own birthday bash!!! Wish I was there to score some of that pinata loot! Looks like you gals had a great time too!

  5. I still can’t get over how much work you guys put into your own party. I thought when it was your birthday you got to sit back and relax? It does like your guest made out like bandits though! Can’t wait to see more pics.

  6. Happy birthday to both of you. And neither of you look your age… I would have guessed younger. The party sounds like a blast!

  7. Sounds like fun! I love the grown up pinata idea…I might have to steal that for my next bday bash! Happy birthday!

  8. looks like lots of fun, but you seem to have gone to a lot of work for your own party! oh well, it sounds like you enjoyed it.

  9. How Fun!!! Own that age! It’s funny…I think I am having more fun now then I did when I was younger! Oh- and looks- much improved- Hee Hee!
