Such a Planner

I am pretty sure since about November 15th.....give or take.....I have been planning Zoe Jane's 1st birthday. Not kidding. I love birthdays! I love Christmas and other holidays too, but Birthdays are MY FAVORITE! That is your special day.....all yours! And I want my baby to feel so speical on that day ever year.

This year....we will probably be celebrating Zach and I surviving more than Zoe (haha), but I want it to be special for memories sake.

I am quite a planner. If I see a good deal or something that I think would be great for the party.....I get it! I have bought her dress, the favors, the plates and napkins. I have already been talking to the wonderful Dessert Box (aka my Mother and Sister in law) about what kind of cake we will be having and looking for pictures of what I want. We have picked a date! I am looking more into invitations....not sure if I will make them or buy....depends on time. I love to entertain....and I CAN'T WAIT!!!!!

Please tell me I'm not the only one! Heck....I know I am not....woman thrive on this kind of stuff!

Only 4 more months

No you are not the only one, I think I started thinking about Carson's b'day when he was 8 months or so, then began making purchases around 9 months. It has been so fun thinking about all the details, I am sure people are going to say I went overboard but I don't care, I have enjoyed planning it for him. I can't wait to see what you come up with!

I started planning Maggie's bday when she was (maybe) 4 months old. She's now almost 15 months old and I am working on bday #2 :) Planning bdays far in advance means (for me) that I can do alot more stuff. I like going overboard for parties ... it's fun!

Nope Rylee's stuff is bought and pretty much ready to go. Found the place I want to get the cake since I won't have time to do one and I don't think Zelda will deliver this far. I think I start in March each year for all of them because when I start planning Kayleys, I just start planning all of them,.

You are doing good by planning early!! I tried to plan early... but it didn't work out the way I wanted it to. She still had a great birthday, but the decor and invitations and everything wasn't what I wanted. :-( Oh well... Her 2nd birthday will be much better (I hope)!!!!!

I LOVE parties!! Decorating, Menu Planning, Favor Bags, the whole nine yards. And SAVOR every moment, as they get older, they don't want as big a deal as I'd usually like to pull off....sad for the mama. :)
