Celebrating the Birthday Girl

Today is my granddaughter's birthday, she is turning a sassy 6.  We are celebrating with a Unicorn themed party.  Last night, my daughter and I decorated our eat in kitchen in a plethora of unicorns and pink fufu.

Today will be a trip to Orlando to visit Chucky Cheese, her favorite place to go, followed later tonight with a party at the house.  There will be cake, presents and family here to celebrate.

These are precious days, the kiddos grow so fast and I am grateful that I can share these milestones in their lives.

This week has been catching up on daily cleaning chores, laundry and grocery shopping.  I am feeling the excitement and dread of going back to work.

But, I know that the routine of having to be somewhere every day will be the best thing for me in the long run.  I do not do well with too much free time on my hands and structure is my friend.

I shopped at Ald's, and stayed close to my $100 budget.  I love their frozen broccoli, have you tried it?  It is the best.  Very few stalks, and always fresh tasting.

My husband likes their bread products too.  This is great, as they are much cheaper than the brand name.  Most items he is good with, there are a few that we will still buy the brand name goods.  He is not a fan of their cookies or chips.

Practically everything else we buy at Aldi.  I purchased meat on this trip, frozen chicken breasts, pork chops, stew beef, and hamburger.  After I got home, I fried up the hamburger and separated it into 4 separate containers for later use.

When it is just my husband and my self eating, I can use one of the containers for our meal.  Typically we will have spaghetti, tacos, tater tot casserole or sloppy joes on burger nights. We also use the frozen hamburger patties at Aldi's.  We had a pack in the freezer already and did not need to get any this time around.

This morning, I vacuumed, mopped and straightened up the house for a special girl's birthday party this evening.  We went to Chucky Cheese for lunch and to play at her favorite place.  I had a good time too.  It has been YEARS since I have been to a Chucky Cheese restaurant.  I use to take my kids all the time and we used real money for the games.  Now you pay by a card.  Fancy Schmancy!

List for Tomorrow:

  • Replant caladiums
  • List 5 items on  eBay
  • Give dogs a bath
  • Go to kiddos meet the teacher 
  • Clean out my bookbag for work
I have tabled painting the garage door lime green.  I am not sure if  I can commit to such a large space of lime green lol.  I love my front door!
