Guess Who's Expecting!

"Grandma, I have to get my blue for my baby brother's party!" ~Munchface
Yep, the kid was certain her god sibling would be a boy.  She told everyone at her grandparents' home to get ready.  One, she's going to be a big sister.  Two, the baby is a boy.
No, silly. I'm not expecting!  Who is, you ask?  Well, here's a clue:
Have you figured it out yet?

The One Month [FREAK] Out

AHHHH, Islanders!

It's one month until Munchface's eighth birthday and I have a huge confession.

I'm WAY behind my typically obsessive party planning schedule.  By now, I'd have a growing pile of birthday junk somewhere around the house and, well, I don't.  I haven't decided if it's good that I haven't started shopping (as that is my sneaky way of busting the budget) but I do acknowledge it's time to buckle down and get 'er done!

The good thing is this will be her FIRST part-ay at our place so I can finish projects and put them in place *like* immediately.  Plus, I've done so much advanced planning that I am not stressing at all but, goodness, it is one month away! 

Here's the START of my to-do list:

- Design and mail invitations
- Test the music-controlled party light for the space
- Order and fill SWAG bags
- Confirm cake design
- Finalize Munch's outfit
- Finalize layout (will they be upstairs then migrate downstairs for the party or will I contain the party to the basement?)
- Download Playlist

We'll talk more about the rock star party planning this week!  Stay tuned!

Munchface, The Comedian.

Munchface is hilarious.  She tells us all kinds of funny stories.  Her most recent makes me laugh everytime I think of it so, I thought I'd share...

"... do you know Ms. Big ZiZi from the church?  Well, do you know her husband... the one who said the first prayer at church today?... Well, I was sitting by Grandma Lisa.  And.  He said bosom.  In his prayer.  On the MICROPHONE.  AT CHURCH.  He said bosom.  I had to laugh and I had to tell Grandma.  She started laughing... Now, Mommy, I know what a bosom is... He said bosom.  Does God have a bosom? He said bosom.  Like, who does that?"

We laughed about the whole 'bosom' thing for a long while.  She continued her story by mentioning how some of the kids started laughing at her...

"I was in Sunday School.  Someone asked me did I have fun in GA for the fourth. I said yes.  They asked me what did I do. I told them.  Then they asked if I saw family. I said yes.  They asked who did I see. I said I saw my cousin, Boobie.  People started laughing.  Then, I remembered about boobies.  MOMMY, HE SAID BOSOM AND I SAID BOOBIE!!  IN CHURCH!! I SAID BOOBIE IN CHURCH!!"

Boobie is one of my cousin's nicknames. After this realization, she demanded to know his REAL name.  She didn't want to EVER say boobie in church again. NEVER again.
