Witty Subject

Another weekend under the belt and I am tired.  

Friday night I went to a crop at a local church and didn't get home until 1.  Before coming home I had to stop at the grocery store.  I found awesome little jar candles to use as favors for my sister's emergency shower this coming weekend.  They were only $.84 each.  I'll have to post a picture when I finish with them.

Saturday was my nephew's birthday party.  I felt so bad for him- it was supposed to be a pool party and it was pouring outside.  So we call crammed into my sister's apartment.  It was loud but everyone had a good time.  

Yesterday was cleaning day.  I have so much to do to get ready for this party on Sunday.  A lot of cleaning to do-- and it's difficult with Andy always undoing what I've done.  I *have* to get the house done during the week because Saturday will be the massive yard cleaning.  Anyway, Steve and I did our weekly Costco run then came home and opened up the pop-up gazebo things I bought to make sure they were okay and then cleaned out the back porch.  We were all excited to get the kids to bed around 8:30 for the season finale of The Sopranos.  At 8:58 the skies opened up and it began to pour rain and immediately I realized how much that sucked.  We tuned the TV to HBO and got the message that our satellite had gone out!  ARRGHH!  So we missed the first five minutes.  Oh well. 

1.  Order the cake--I'm thinking a half sheet.  Strawberry and banana filling
2.  Order a corsage.  I think it's cheesy and old-fashioned but my mom wants it so, whatever.  
3.  Order balloons and buy other decoration stuff
4.  Find games and buy prizes
5.  Buy sterno
6.  Finish the favors
7.  Buy cake plates (already bought food plates)
8.  Buy her presents!!!

On Sunday morning I need to:
1.  Pick up the balloons
2.  Pick up the 3 foot sub
3.  Pick up the corsage
4.  Set up
5.  Heat the food

Should I get a babysitter for the duration of the party to help Steve out?  One of my scrapbooking friends has a 17-year-old daughter who is really sweet.
