Busy, busy!

Today is going to be one of those crazy, busy days! I have so much to do, I'm almost afraid to make a "To Do" list, but I will because the old brain tends to forget too much if I don't.

Tomorrow is Bella's birthday party and I have decided to make cupcakes instead of having a cake for her. The past couple of birthday cakes for her have been expensive and dreadful, so this will have to be better, right?? I had wanted to get a cupcake tree, and of course now that I could finally justify the expense, I can't find one. I have one last day to get it!!!! I'm on a mission!

Of course I have the regular housework to do, on top of the ohmygosh-people-are-coming-over-here cleaning. It's true. I clean my house better for company than I do for my own family. Crazy, huh??

So I better get twirling....(wish me luck!)

PS: Bella's birthday isn't until August 18th, but we most likely won't have our household goods yet, and maybe not even be in a house, so we're celebrating now while we have people we know around us and chairs to sit on, lol!

I wish we lived closer because I would loan you my cupcake tree! I hope the party is a blast! But, I know you, so I know it will be!

I think I saw a cupcake tree at Target, but I could be wrong. Sorry, my mind ain't what it never was...You need to scurry. Such a busy lady. I always clean for company like a crazy woman. That's why I don't entertain more often. It's exhausting.

Happy Early Birthday to Bella.

My nephew's wife made cupcakes for their daughter's 3rd birthday party and it was much easier for the kids. (and the adults)

Lynn said...

Awww that is such a good idea to celebrate so that everyone else can enjoy that time with you also, Happy early birthday to Bella lol I hope you find the cupcake tree you want..

Mimi said...

My dad made an awesome cupcake tree for my wedding when I married Chris. We couldn't find one then because it was before cupcakes became "cool".

I guess that doesn't help you though!

Anything is better than last years cake if I recall correctly! I know your cupcakes will rock!

Faye said...

Can't help with the cupcake tree, but having the birthday party early is a great idea. As for the cleaning for company vs. cleaning for family, I think most of us would say we do the same.

I feel your pain about the cleaning. It is like... I try, but I just can't do it. And then I feel so guilty because my husband works 7 days a week and I know a nice clean house would make him happy!

I hope the party is beyond fantastic : ) I hope you found a cupcake tree as well. I feel like I see them everywhere, but you are so right! When I am looking for something it is no where to be found.

You did GREAT with the cupcakes! They looked totally awesome. I always wanted to get one of those trees as well (I think it's so cool) and always looking for a great deal :)
