Tomorrow we are headed for our first hotel stay since Boston: 9 months ago! Nick is bigger now and I am anticipating a night of little sleep. We'll see if he surprises us. We'll be reading books in dim light by 7pm - ha! We're meeting friends that have a 6 month old that we haven't met yet so I'm pumped. And! We're going to the Brazilian steakhouse up there. I LOVE that salad bar. VEGGIES! I hope I like them tomorrow - I am that place's moneymaker as a vegetarian.
Travel and food for baby?? Nick's food routine is pretty regimented - breakfast is grains and veggies and fruits, lunch is yogurt, dinner is usually finishing lunch or more of breakfast or hummus sandwich - I've also tried pasta, scrambled egg... anyway, for traveling, I bought some jars of earth's best since we are staying in a hotel w/o a refrigerator. It's only one night so that should be fine but - what do you do for travel and food in this case?
About 2 weeks to go
Nick's shirt - I just have to sew this on. I have the Carter's birthday boy shirt in case of a mishap/alternate outfit, and I'm wondering if I can just hot glue this on? hah. I know I'm going to screw it up attempting to sew it. Thanks shellyrm for the blue background all around idea!
3 tiered cake holder, wahoo. The middle things don't look awesome but I couldn't figure out what to cover the blocks in. This idea came from Chari and was a great one - I couldn't find what I needed and wanted to do cupcakes on the bottom 2 layers and Nick's little cake on top. I hope it doesn't tip over!
It is made out of 3 circles of styrofoam, covered in scrapbook paper (top) and wrapping paper (bottom) and the sides were covered with ribbon. Add in 2 boxes between layers (also styrofoam) and cover them in wrapping paper.
Airplane theme taken too far: Arrival sign for door coming in. Departure sign for door leaving.
On the to do list:
Make Nick's cake to test (no sugar)
Bring invite to bakery to get them to match airplane for guest cake
CC Cookies for parent favors
Finish Nick's shirt
Hang up signs
Buy more plates, party cups, and order food!
