Corey’s 30th Birthday

Monday, July 7, 2014

Believe it or not, I wasn’t originally planning on throwing Corey a party for his 30th birthday.  His big birthday present is a trip to New York at the end of July to see his favorite soccer team.  But then I thought about it, and I decided I would feel like a bit of a jerk if I didn’t have some kind of group gathering for him.  Instead of throwing it at our house and going crazy with decorations like I normally do, I decided to make it at a local bar called VBGB Beer Garden (which means that there are a lot of beer options, but not actually a garden I don’t think) and make it a surprise!  Spoiler alert, it wasn’t a surprise.  Because I am a bad liar, and because he automatically assumed that I was going to throw him a party anyway.  Oh well.  We still had a great time with all of our lovely friends.

I kept things simple with some easy cupcake toppers (download here - Birthday Cupcake Toppers) and candle centerpieces using some printables from Oh Happy Day.  I made the cupcakes using this recipe and Megan finished off with the frosting using the same chocolate buttercream from last year.  I can vouch for the deliciousness.  Many thanks to Megan for setting things up so I could bring the birthday boy late.  She’s a gem that one.

Happy Birthday Megan!

Wednesday, April 23, 2014

Whenever people meet Megan and I at the same time, they almost always comment on the fact that we sound alike.  We use all the same strange vocabulary and vocal mannerisms.  So much so that Megan can trick Corey into thinking that she is me on the phone.  There is a very simple reason for this.  I’ve spent most of my life looking up to my cool big sister, emulating her and of course repeating all of her questionable fashion choices (most famously, the pink plaid pants in 6th grade).  I’m sure she is glad that I have grown out of hiding her belts under my pillow so I would be able to wear them to school.  Thankfully, she’s not only a terrific big sister, but also a pretty spectacular role model.  I feel ever so lucky to have her.  Happy Birthday Meg!  I hope you get all the delicious Mexican food, cake, and fluffy kitty cats that your heart desires.  Love you!

Meg’s Birthday Party

Tuesday, April 22, 2014

Corey and I threw a bit of a last minute birthday party for Meg this past weekend.  Her birthday is this week I’ve been so preoccupied trying to plan our California trip in early May that I basically forgot to get my act together until a week ago or so.  Luckily, our friends are the best and were game for a low key cookout.  Corey’s sister Katie was a complete gem and helped me decorate with some small touches here and there.  She made lots of those pretty paper flowers and used my newly purchased star punch to make things festive by basically throwing stars everywhere.  Here are some pictures taken frantically in the last few free minutes before the people arrived.  Let’s talk about how much I need a tripod.  These are so grainy.
