playing tag & a party planning sneak peak.

ok, it's super late & i should be in bed.  i've been getting stuff together all day for p-ray's party because i refuse to be panicked at the last minute & unable to do all the fun things i have in my head that i want to do for it.  so, we're at 11 days & counting til party time & so far i'm on schedule.  am i on budget?  ummm, i'll have to crunch some numbers.

anywho, i was tagged by nicole to answer this favorite things post.  yup, two "about me" posts in a row.  this is my blog, after all.  here goes:

food:  anything sam bbq's, though nothing beats his bbq steak.
color:  right now?  anything bright & cheery.  these grey days got me down.
animal:  dog.  i'm totally a dog person.
dessert:  it's gotta be chocolate.  preferably with chocolate on top & chocolate chunks inside.
artist:  my mom.  she's pretty good.
pair of shoes:  flip flops, with a pedicure.
outfit:  i'm a jeans & t-shirt kinda girl.  i mix it up with accessories, but those are my staples.
skinny jeans:  yup.
brand:  i love how mandy answered this... "anything target sells."
perfume:  ummm... nope.
accessory:  my baby on my hip.
city:  portland.
hobby:  working out, blogging.
beauty product:  mascara.  i can't leave home without it {or you wouldn't recognize me}.
holiday:  christmas.  duh.
snack:  cashews.  clif bars.  smoothies.
movie:  anything that is super funny.
song:  "wake up" by arcade fire.
guilty pleasure:  staying up late & blogging silly posts like this.


and one more thing.  i probably won't be posting too much of p-ray's party planning things on here just because i want to post all the pics at once after the party.  but i'm too excited about how my DIY cupcake toppers turned out to wait another 11 days to share them.  so here they are.

keep in mind i took these pics late tonight with my phone, so the quality is kinda lacking.  but the cupcake toppers?  they're top notch muh friends.  i kinda love them.

we're going with a robot theme.  random?  yes.  and don't judge me by the finger smudges on the glass desk in that last pic, mmmk?

who has two thumbs & is super excited for a one year old's birthday party?  this girl!

  1. Don't worry, your robot theme will probably work out a lot better than my pirate theme did. Who would have thought that babies aren't so much into pirates? I had to get all older kid themed stuff-- Pirates of the Caribbean was seriously all that was out there. But I had already ordered these cute pirate invitations, so I had to stick with it. But Niall still loved it :)
