Saturday was a busy day for me. I had been trying to plan for my mama’s birthday for a few weeks now…but as always, there are the finishing touches that seem to mount on the day of. I had decided that we would do finger foods. That always sounds good in theory, when in reality, a person would be a whole lot better off just buying pizza. Haha.
The menu was cheese ball, hot dogs wrapped in bacon, meatballs, spinach dip, nachos, and three different types of bar cookies (dixies, white chip lemon bars, and double fudge fantasy bars). It seems like there were several other things…but I’m drawing a blank. The thing about it was, I waited until Saturday to really start cooking. I felt like I was up the river, without a paddle, with a hole in my boat. But, never fear, super girl kicked in at about 11 a.m. and all the work got finished.
We had a really good turn out and mom really seemed to enjoy herself…which was by far the best part.
The first gift she opened was a red-ish wig from Aunt Meryl. The girls, Taryn and Rachel, loved it. My uncle yelled out “She looks like Esther from Sanford and Son!” We did get some funny pics of mom in her red wig.
Mom loved her party, and we all got to catch up with people that we hadn’t seen in a while. It was so nice. I’m so glad that mom had a special birthday :)
