note: this is a month-old overdue post as i have been summoning up my wits and is procrastinating but i ran out of alibis to postpone it further..
location: jollibee - puregold, malolos city
theme: pocoyo goes to jollitown
this is another milestone in my son's book, his very first birthday!
we woke up the morning of august 31st a little bit late (what with the party jitters settling in, i can't seem to sleep the previous night plus i went home a little late from picking up my son's pocoyo cake and cupcakes from cupcakesforless and having a much-needed, well-deserved mani/pedi which was also a treat for myself since it was my birthday 2 days ago), anyway all i have to do is prepare my son for this afternoon's event, since everything else is set for the party later!i got all the loot bags and other party favors neatly stacked in a paperbag, jared's babybag prepared the night before, the cool diy standee (more of do-it-by-tito, since i had everything done by my bro, ken), after some last minute tweaking from my brother is now stationary in a corner of the room waiting for some party action,and the cake and cupcakes stashed in a corner ready for transport. and yes, i've forgotten about the piñata, where is it anyway? only about 30% of it is finished and we have like what four hours or so before the party starts!okay, before i go into panic attack, took some breath to clear my chest and just relax...inhale, exhale, relaxing now...oh god, where are the cd giveaways!
these cuppies are way too cute and yummy too..ooops, that missing one
didn't last the first hour i brought it home...
it turned out that we have yet to burn a few cd giveaways and attach the layout to them and finish the piñata and buy additional candies for the piñata as well, before we troop to jollibee for jared's party. okay i think that is manageable, there are 6 of us working simultaneously to get all the last-minute works done. no worries, no pressure, right? well easier said than done. when it is your son who's having his very first birthday and you are the one organizing it, i think i have all the right to panic now?!
