I have been a little absent lately and it seems that life finally caught up with me. I have been incredibly busy at work and once I get home I am in birthday party overload.
I do this to myself every year. I build up these expectations of what I want Nathan's party to be and then I realize that I am in way over my head. And all for a 2 year old's birthday party. Just call me insane. I complain about it every year and then I get sucked into doing it all over again. What is going to happen when I have 2 birthday parties to plan in one year?
As for this weekend, my mom was gracious enough to mail me a glue gun all the way from the US because I couldn't find one here in France. I'm sure they exist - I just obviously wasn't hitting up the right stores. Armed with a glue gun in hand I set out to make out these lovely accessories for Nathan's Mickey party. It all seemed so simple - the directions seemed fool proof. But I overestimated my ability with a glue gun. I only managed to make 2 and they are filled with my blood sweat and tears - and oh yeah burnt skin! It will all be worth it right?
I have also been up to my nose in subway art, cupcake toppers and my living room looks like the Mickey Clubhouse has exploded.
But all in all, this weekend was productive. And Nathan even wanted to pick up some accessories while we went grocery shopping on Saturday.
But now, things seem to be getting back to normal, as normal as they can be around here and I will hopefully have more time to blog about all of the shenanigans going on around here. Hopefully you will stick with me.
