My 1st time making a balloon wall. It’s not perfect but you get the picture. Thanks to my husband for hanging them! I love the look of balloons but HATE them at the same time!

The aftermath!

~ Food~


Special ingredient for the cupcakes


Can you guess what kind of food we had?! I’ve learned that people really don’t care for beans lol

Veggie meal

I tried to look out for the vegetarians but this never got cooked! I see how they’re usually overlooked. I meant well!

organic food

Quick story behind this… I sent a last minute grocery list to Pops, my father in law and he comes back with this…. All organic. I would have definitely bought the “regular” stuff for the sake of the party. Can you tell where the bougie (healthy) eating habits come from? I blame/thank GG! πŸ™‚

Austin and pizza

So I felt bad for the kids and ordered pizza! What’s a party without it. They’re lucky that I didn’t have time to make that too lol.


They were more like muffins lol. But I bet no one knew they had zucchini in them! Thank you to my bestie, Muqita for icing them at the last minute. <– SORRY!

~ Family~


I pray that we ALWAYS have a good relationship! Right now we’re best friends because I’m her food supply! Haha!
