Happy Birthday, Mom!

Hi there!  Remember me?  I'm sorry I've been absent for nearly a week.  Yet once again, I've come down with a cold.  I'm having dizzy spells as I sit here behind the screen, but I wanted to share with you all what I've been doing this past week. 

I was busy planning a birthday soiree for my mom.  I'm sure she'll be thankful that I don't disclose her real age, but she's is fabulous at any age, and I love her.  About a hundred of family and close friends came to celebrate with her.  I haven't seen my mom this excited in a long time.  It was a day all  about her and she totally deserved it.  Happy Birthday, Mom!  Here's to many more years of fabulousness.  I love you.

(clockwise: centerpieces, favors; hand sewn reuseable bags by the Pirate and I (fact: my mom is obsessed with bags/purses), yellow and strawberry cuppies with homemade cream cheese frosting, "photobooth" lips for guests to take silly photos (fact: my mom wears red lipstick everyday, even when she's at home), choco cuppies with sprinkles, close up of the strawberry cuppies, birthday banner hand painted by my Sister.)

(handsewn reuseable bags by the Pirate and I)

(Coach bag money/card/ box made by yours truly.  To say my mom was thrilled is an understatement.)

(mom, Sister, me, dad)

(sealed with a kiss!)

(Me and the Pirate being silly.. lover him forevah!)

And this is what I wore.  Probably not the most flattering of dresses (makes me look wider, don't you think?), but I loved the print and it definitely help me beat the heat that night.  It's been so stinkin' hot.  I'm over summer, and it's hasn't even officially begun.

Love, S
