My favorite kinds of festive events are ones that celebrate someone other than myself. I was definitely that kid who lived for Christmas & my birthday (for the presents and spotlight, obviously). Yet as I have gotten older, I have definitely grown to appreciate days dedicated to others. In reality, I lose endless hours planning details & perfecting plans for some special people in my life. And it's totally worth it.
These days, my Type-A (over) obssesive brain is in overdrive since I'm getting ready to celebate my two FAVORITE people in the world. Even though my hubby had a baby on the way last June, this Sunday will mark his first official Father's Day. I can't think of anyone more deserving.
Waverly Maye & I have been busy and definitely have a few tricks up our (always fashionable) sleeves. Yet since it's possibly my hubby may read my blog sometime this week (although that's a total maybe), let's just say that he will have the day that he deserves - complete with a yummy breakfast, a couple sentimental suprises, and of course, lots of beer.
And speaking of Waverly (as I often do!), our baby girl's first birthday is getting closer & closer. In fact, today's date will make it exactly 47 days away. Make no mistake, in between our everyday lives, holiday hoopla, and packing our entire house for a move at the end of the month ... I am in TOTAL planning mode. I have pretty much transformed what is left of the decor in our house into a yellow, pink & orange hysteria - complete with frames, banners, food containers, & naturally, a sun-shaped pinata. And (who doesn't?), I successfully staged Waverly Maye for a save-the-date on our street.
You may also expect that Waverly has two themed-party outfits & some festive headbands on the way for the occasion. That sweet hubby I was mentioning? He doesn't quite understand my need for a couple months of planning for a one-year old's birthday. Thank goodness he is rolling with it, because I, on the other hand, think it's entirely appropriate. :)
A special thank you to Shapes on A String, Truly Sanctuary, Sleepytime 4, & Sadie Sky Boutique for already working with me on goodies for Waverly's You Are My Sunshine theme. More details to come in the official party post!
