Wow, what a week!! I feel like today is the first day I am actually able to relax. Which is crazy, because I have a mountain of laundry I need to tackle. Yesterday was Queenie's birthday party. We went for a Princess theme and asked all her friends to attend in princess attire. Everyone showed up as their favourite Disney Princess and they all looked so beautiful.
I had a blast browsing on Pinterest, at all the awesome Princess party ideas. I took one idea for the center pieces and bought two different sized glass flower vases and filled them with pastel coloured candy. In one I placed some flower and butterfly shaped lollipops in one vase and a scepter in the second. Then after digging in the $.50 bin at Micheal's for about 20 minutes, I found some awesome jeweled flower stickies and an awesome ribbon I used to tie around the vases. The girls loved the center pieces and snacking on the Smarties and Mini Eggs. Everyone had a ton of fun, Emily said it was the best birthday party yet and I loved seeing all those little girls dressed up as princesses.
We've been eating out way to much the past few days, so it's time to get back on track and back on budget. Hubby is off today, works tomorrow and is off Tues, Wed. I'm hoping to get a good deal on ham somewhere, for Easter Brunch. Other than that and a few things like milk and bread, I'll be cooking out of the pantry and freezer this week. Here is the plan
- Chicken and Dumplings
- Rosemary Thyme Chicken and Potatoes with Lemon Dill Asparagus
- Braised Beef and veggies with Noodles
- Veggie soup with fresh baked bread
- Tacos with Spanish Rice
- Easter Brunch leftovers (ham, scalloped potatoes, rolls, asparagus and broccoli, hard boiled eggs)
