The Return of the Last Minute Party Planner

Months ago, I scrambled to put together a birthday party for my 4-year-old son, Liam.  It was a very elaborate and idealistic plan, and at the time, I had no real idea how I was going to execute all of the wonderful things I had imagined.  Luckily, with the help of some amazing women (Ma and Bri), the party (Superhero themed) went off without a hitch.  Complete success and further proof that procrastination is often magical.

Welp, I figured, why not!!??  Why not wait until the very. last. second to iron out the final details of my hub Bren's 30th (surprise) birthday party.  It's not like this is a milestone or anything, and it couldn't possibly be any more complicated and stressful than a 4-year-old's party (especially since I hand-made capes for all of his guests-- Coolest Mom Ever-- I know).

So here I am, 3 days away from go time, and I am just now putting together my scheme, again with my Partner in Crime, Bri:

First, the food, because he's a man and that's pretty much priority #1 in his life (immediately following me and the kids, of course!!).  ;)

Happy Hour Fare:

As for presents, I'd like to do something fun for him like this adorable gift basket below:

  I'm also serving Skittle Flavored Vodka, because despite turning 30.... ah, screw it.  Do I really need a REASON to spike the rainbow?

We'll see how this all turns out.  If all else goes to hell, we'll have lots of beer and liquor.  Not bad for a safety net.

Updates to follow!!

OH!  And can we all say a collective HALLELUJAH!  Today is officially my last day at GMU before heading on to bigger and better things.....

... like party planning.

Smile at everyone today.  Literally, everyone!
