It’s My Party!!

…My 30th Birthday Party that is ~ but worry not, no tears here!!

This is what 30 looks like 😀

It has been an AMAZING day so far. I got up this morning really early (as usual… I love mornings!) and immediately started baking my very own cake. It’s pink, sugary, sprinkled, and filled with RAINBOWS! Just like thirty should be!

The recipe for the white cake (coloured with food gel) and buttercream frosting is from Wilton, and I made it with their Easy Layers! Cake Pan Set.

As the cake cooled off, I went outside and did a long run in the cold (brr!) to make room for more cake and treats.

When I got back it was time to blow up balloons, snack around, cuddle the kitty, wear a poofy dress, and blast some fun 90s tunes. Which was the most perfect day!

Sugar learned about balloons pretty fast 😉 Eek!

I celebrated my birthday with my family the other day (one of those being a Christmas Baby things!), so this day is just about ME and that’s perfectly fine and fun! I got some hot pink towels, pink chocolate molds, a pink blanket (I think people know me pretty well?!), and my gift to myself was the Polly Pocket 30th Anniversary Set (I’m working on a longer review post)!

I have to say it was a day that was completely different than what I thought 30 would be like even just a couple of years ago (and what society thinks it should be like!) Not sure why there seems to be a view that as soon as you turn a certain age (30 for instance!) that you need to stop dressing a certain way, stop enjoying things, or stop having fun. In my three decades on this planet, I’ve learned not to worry what other people think.

Yes, it’s so cliche, but life goes by too fast to be what other peoples’ vision of 30 is. Just be YOU and have fun on this fun little ride!!

Happy birthday to MEOW!

Today is Sugar the Cat’s FIRST birthday! When I adopted her last April, the shelter told me that she was the only girl born on February 11th, 2018. 😀 I celebrated her birthday this past Saturday by having a great big bash with all her friends.

Here is Sugar the day she came home – almost a year ago! Almost grown into those ears!
Party animal – doesn’t she look thrilled 😉
Party time! Even Hello Kitty made an appearance!

I decorated (guess how long that sweets garland lasted for? SIGH!), baked cupcakes, blew up balloons, and had a loong conversation with a cashier at the party store about my daughters first birthday plans (she IS my daughter – just a bit furrier than usual!)

Presents were found (much more fun wrapped!)

In case you’re curious too, she ended up getting an Ikea cat tube from my brother. Yes, it fit in that tiny little package!

She only had a tiny nibble of frosting – wasn’t really interested in PEOPLE food. Blegh!

Cake was SMASHED!

The cat’s IN the bag!

A great time was had by all! 🙂

It’s always a great time to throw a party! Whether it’s for your human friends or your pet friends.
