Over the weekend we had Max's pirate themed 4th birthday party. Parties usually completely stress me out but surprisingly this party was stress free and so much fun! So much went into it and the semi-sad part is I forgot to take pictures of all the food and other shenanigans that occurred that day. So you may be wondering if all the kids at the party starved and I promise you they did not. They had shipwreck sandwiches, dead man's fingers (mini hotdogs), parrot legs (chicken drumsticks) and more.
The main backdrop for the food and appetizer table was a pirate sail, which I made out of a drop cloth from Lowes. I had a pirate flag (purchased from Amazon) sewn onto the middle. My awesome neighbor is a bathing suit designer who actually did the sewing...thank you Ashley!
My sister Nat is the best. She ran all around town helping me find little goodies for the party weeks and days before.
Max's Papa and Grandma got him a legit pirate steering wheel along with a pirate bell and flag to attach to his outside fort. He was in heaven.
Party throwing is no joke, but I must say when it is all said and done I don't regret a thing. Okay maybe I regret buying so many gold beaded pirate necklaces but other than that... nothin.
And now for the things you may or may not care about. A heads up because sometimes I read things and I think...."No and I don't careeeeeeee." And if you know what movie that line is from, virtual high five :)
1. About 3 months ago I wrote this really long post about how I was quitting Instagram. It was deep (not that deep). I did in fact quit that part was accurate but I recently decided that I miss sharing quick little snips here and there since blogging is becoming less frequent at the moment. So....I am that super annoying person who says they quit a social media thing and then they are back. Total hypocrite I know but hey I am a human and humans can change their minds. My new account can be found here.
2. I'm in a blog funk. I do not feel creative and I think the best medicine is a little break. Forceful blogging just does not work for me. So if you still want to follow along with life updates see #1. I will be back soon!
