So Big Cutie is having her 9th birthday party next month. The rule in our house is that you may not start obsessively chattering nonstop talking about your party until the month prior. So pretty much at midnight on September 1st she woke me up with notes to discuss her ideas. She is truly my mini-me in every way.
She will be having a Spa Themed party and a wonderful group of women who do parties in our town will be coming to do manicures, pedicures, massages & facials (Mom ~ if you’re reading this, I was totally deprived as a 9 year old, just so you know). After scouring the internet, we settled on this invitation from Tiny Prints. I think my favorite part is “reserve your spa treatment” as the RSVP tag line ~ how cute is that?
So this is where we come to the part of party planning where I know I’m slightly certifiable. I know the name of the two fonts used in the invitation so now that they’ve arrived and I need to make address labels for the envelopes I just have to Google them to upload them and print, right? WRONG! Neither one is available free and I’m sure as heck not paying $49 per font for my 9 year old’s envelopes (even I’m not that crazy). So now I confess that I just spent the past 2o minutes searching all my fonts trying to decide whether Apple Symbols, Apple Gothic, Geneva CE or Verdana are closest to Park Roman (if you’re a font geek and know the correct answer please feel free to tell me!).
This is why I’ve started this blog. Because when I try to explain to my husband tonight exactly what I did with my afternoon and why none of the laundry has been folded there will be some pretty darn justifiable eye rolling.
