Whelp here I go again planning another party. This time it’s a birthday party for a special girl turning 5. As you all know my little princess loves Iron man. She has made special requests for her upcoming party and I am putting my party planning skills to the test… again.lol
Her request list is as follows:
Iron Man cupcakes
Strawberry flavor cupcakes
A baby shark
Party at ChuckE.Cheese (that has been a request since she was 2)
A trip to the ocean/beach
Here is a look at my to do list to make this super girl’s wishes come true.
Invites-check *ordered and should be here for me to mail off tomorrow*
Iron Man décor –
Chose a good “STRAWBERRY” cupcake recipe
Find/make cool Iron Man toppers-
Make the Cupcakes-

Get the camping gear organized-

My daughter’s birthday shin dig is set to occur in 11 days!!!
How am I going to find the time to get my to do list all done? With the fourth of July coming up, work, taking care of 3 kidlets, maintaining a clean environment for my family (home) and taking a mini trip to Oregon this weekend, it seems all overwhelming at this moment. Eeek! I feel a panic attack coming on...
Oh I am also making tons of foody to bring over to a 4th of July BBQ. I am making a whole bunch of special treats which I will post about tomorrow. I am still trying to decide on a yummy side dish/salad, something new and exciting.
Here are some sights/blogs I found to help me out with some strawberry cupcake flavors…
Gimmie Some Oven has a great strawberry lemonade cupcakes w/fresh strawberry butter cream frosting. Sounds dreamy huh?
Ooh ooh oh… and then there is Love & Olive Oil, this site also has a splendid recipe for Strawberry Lemonade cupcakes.
Sounds like I am settled on the cupcake flavor, now to chose a recipe… Any suggestions?
I wish I can make them cute like these ones….
|These Strawberry Lemonade cupcakes are so elegant.|
|These Strawberry Lemonade cupcakes are literally adorable and perfect for a summer girly party.|
But they are going to look more like these ones…
|These cupcakes are pretty much how my Strawberry Lemonade cupcakes are going to look like.|
|Just picture them with Pink/Red and Yellow frosting/cake.lol|
I have been pondering lately and thinking I may be a control freak…
Is this some kinda control issue I have?
I tend to plan things out a head of time, make my to do lists and if things don’t work out as I had plan my whole world becomes a tornado.My goal is to do these many tasks with as much patience as I can maintain. If something doesn’t work out it’s NOT the end of the world Andrea!
I need to print that and post it all over my fridge,calendar, desk and end it on my to do list. *wink*
~A LIFE WITHOUT CUPCAKES IS A LIFE WITH OUT LOVE~
