Today is my girls 11th birthday. Time has moved her so quickly from this little peanut
to a lovely pre-teen. Shhh...don't tell her she's not actually a teenager yet. She really wants to be. :)
It's hard to believe a whole year has passed since we celebrated her 10th birthday with a Monkey Party. I had just started this blog and to this day this is still one of my most viewed posts. I think it is because of this:
The Monkey Cake I made. This is a popular search apparently. It is Martha Stewart's famous monkey cake, and is one of my favorite cakes I've made. I'm all about a themed party. I'm so glad the girl still lets me have them for her. For instance we had so much fun making these party favors to match.
That was a fun birthday.
And you can read more about it here, including directions on how to make the monkey cake and the monkey favor cups: Martha Stewart and Monkey Cakes
This year will be no exception. We have another themed birthday party in the works. Of course this one was a little more difficult to pull off and stretched my creativity. It's always a hard thing when you are challenged to combine aliens, monsters and robots. For a girls birthday party. And are told they must be cute aliens, monsters and robots. I will be sharing our party plans in an upcoming post. It will be an "out of this world" post! grin!
Speaking of birthdays. We have another birthday of sorts coming up. It's the birth of an exciting new venture between my sister, Vanessa at Southern In My Heart, and myself.
We decided to take the saying "two heads are better than one" seriously around here! There has been a lot of behind the scenes activity as we work to launch our new project. We hope you'll agree with us when we unveil our latest blogging endeavour. I'll give you a sneak peek...
We desire to move "beyond the blogging" to formulate lasting relationships between woman in the blogging community. We want to provide a place where women can share, care and inspire one another. So stay tuned for more updates and watch for our launch information! I hope you will join my sister and me in this new adventure. There will still be great recipes available...but also so much more!
Can't wait to....meet you there!
