To Do

1st July 2005

Ok, just so you know where I’m at right now, I’ll share my TO DO list before the birthday party this weekend:

  • Finish smocked birthday dress. This is the neverending project. People pay $50+ for these dresses, and I can now see why. Just when I think I’m close to being done, I’m not. AG.
  • Scrapbook one page for each month of Analise. This was a high hope I had, but its not going to happen. Bummer, because it would be far more relaxing than working on this silly (but pretty!) dress.
  • Make queso dip. Sat. am project in the slow cooker.
  • Make fruit salad. I think my wonderful mother-in-law is going to take care of this (fingers-crossed!!).
  • Make cupcakes (to supplement cake).
  • Wrap birthday gifts. Thankfully, there are only 3.
  • Pick up BBQ and beans at Jim Nick’s BBQ. (Sat. am) Mmm, makes me hungry already!
  • Pick up birthday cake from Edgar’s bakery. (Sat. am) I had hoped to do it myself, but now I’m being realistic.
  • Pray it’s not 90 degrees or storming during party time!
  • Chase my busy little toddler around. To be done in between all above activities, leaving no time to catch my breath. She’s a busy girl!
  • Ok, so you probably won’t hear from me until after the party. But I’ll be back this weekend to post a fun recap of the event. It’s started small, but it’s growing to be quite the gathering! Wish y’all could join us!

    I so forgot to chat with you about your dress making adventures while you were here. Thanks for making the effort to see us on your recent adventures. Too bad there was no baby – still isn’t 🙂

    THE PARTY DRESS IS DONE!! WOOHOO! Not that anyone will notice this comment, but I’m too tired to post a whole blog and picture, so it’ll have to wait until the birthday girl models it tomorrow. What an endeavor… it’s been a comedy of errors, but no one will notice because Analise is so dang cute!
