One year ago we welcomed Brandy Marilyn into this world, and she continues to be an absolute blessing in our lives!
That was hands down thee best homeschool day that I have ever experienced, as Renzo (at age eight years) was present for the entire birth!
One: Have at least one balloon. Today, I opted for a single number one shaped balloon!
Two: Have wrapped present(s)… wrapped is the key here and NOT in a bag….Wrapping paper is just wayyyyyy too much fun to tear open!
Three: Have cake. It doesn’t have to be anything extravagant, but you must have cake to truly call it a party! It may, or may not be accompanied by cupcakes, but my rule is that there must be a cake!
Gold sandals like new on consignment for: $2.50
Crown (splurge) from a boutique for: $6.00
Isn’t it adorable?!
Her gifts included a tea set from Target for $15.00
I would have made a cake to save on cost, but then it would have required me to buy a cake pan and supplies… so I splurged and bought the cake for: $30.
This evening, we are headed downtown to Lake Eola where there is an outdoor theatre and the girls’ ballet school is performing tonight…The cost of the Snow White ballet performance is FREE!
So I have managed to pull together a memorable birthday celebration for a grand total of ninety eight dollars!!
I hear that there are going to be a bunch of trendy food trucks lined up around the theatre tonight, so now we have money to spare! Pat has his eyes set on the Treehouse Truck for a good burger…
