Team Saige.

Wednesday, January 29, 2014

This wild child had a party over the weekend to celebrate her FIVEness and there's something to be said about paying someone else to organize it (this coming from a wedding planner). Our local gymnastics club offers a party package that - aside from snacks - takes care of everything (activities, plates, napkins, tablecloths, balloons)... I seriously couldn't sign on the dotted line fast enough. 

Don't get me wrong, I LOVE planning parties (obviously), but with Christmas, the bridal show, the Durali contract, our never-ending reno and 7 weddings on the books plus engagement season, I'm a bit coordinated out. That being said, it's not a Knol party without a "theme" so here's what we came up with SUPER last minute... a pre-Olympic bash! 

Congratulations gymnast you're going to the Olympics!
Time to suit up in shorts + stripes and join your
fellow teammate
for a pre-Sochi practice + celebration
Sunday, January 25th
North Valley Gymnastics Club

All made possible by 16 homemade cupcakes (sprinkled by Saige), 13 little friends, 2 sheets of maple leaf temporary tattoos and Olympic torch goodie bags made from Dollar Tree finds and skittles (can you believe Dollarama didn't have a single Canada flag?! how unpatriotic of them). 

Aside from watching a baker's dozen of cutie kids tip-toe across balance beams, my favourite part of the day was the NO PRESENT OPENING! Say whaa?! Yup, we stole the idea from another birthday party and asked guests to bring a toonie ($2 coin) instead of a gift which Saige could later spend on the toy of her choice. BEST.IDEA.EVER. We went from floor routines to cupcakes and skipped the whole recycling bag of wrapping paper altogether. I applaud whoever came up with this brilliant idea!

I gotta admit Gabe's geek party was pretty fun, but Saige's pre-Sochi celebration was probably the easiest birthday we've hosted yet. Maybe next year the house will actually be done and we can finally have a party at home.

Okay I lied... my favourite part of the day was not having to clean up.
(sorry for the awful iPhone photos, the lighting was not the greatest in there).

Happy Hump Day!

blogging blahs + birthdays.

I apologize for the serious snoozefest as of late. I don't even have a justifiable excuse like a pregnancy or unfortunate H1N1 contamination, I'm just boring and non-committal these days.

That being said there is a juicy rumour going around town that I am with child thanks to the Fall blog post entitled...

The moral of the story is "don't skim read". If you happen to hear this rumour circulating, please for the love of vasectomies squash it, it's terribly cruel and brings on hot sweats. Apparently there's another spicy rumour out there about me and the details surrounding how I quit my job, but I think I'll save that for later. It's pretty funny. Almost as funny as my life being rumour worthy.

So yesterday Saige turned 5 and I could feel my insides weeping while I pretended to be overjoyed on the outside. I'm all of a sudden not a fan of my babies growing up. If there was ever any doubt Saige was mine, we spent her day playing playmobil, licking cake beaters and eating pizza in our PJ's. How did I get so lucky?

Someone else had a birthday yesterday... turned FOUR! You'd think after 4 years of writing posts I'd be better at taking non-blurry photos of my girl, but no.

Off to sleep my blahs away,

Happy MEW Year!

So long crazy 2013 and hello crazy cat lady?!

Having never been much of a cat person, this new infatuation with all things whiskers feels very odd. I blame Saige and her Elmyra-like obsession with furry felines for this recent fetish... "I'm going to hug you and kiss you and love you forever (Tiny Toon Adventures, 1991). 

I plan on surprising my smitten (almost-5-year-old) kitten with her very own kitty themed hang out -- once we do the musical room thing that is. Saige is gonna be taking over our current master which means she gets the biggest closet of the bunch.

This year I vow to embrace LESS while I continue chasing my dreams. You know what they say...

meow go check out TOP KNOT Events' new blog!
thanks again Paperfelt for my purr-dy new logo.

okay I'll stop
