My sister's actually birthday was on Thursday and that night we had the "official" celebratory family dinner, friends included. Friday was a low-key pool day and so much fun drinking Mango Madres in 115 degree weather. Now, Saturday was the real party day! All in all, it was an absolute blast!
|We couldn't have the party without shortbread WW cookies!|
|It's me at the dinner!|
|The birthday girl's all important present fro me: Lasso of Truth and the magic bracelets.|
|The birthday girl asked for strawberry cake pops and I "opted" for themed ones - |
in none other than red, blue and gold glitter!!!
|It was a tad bit hot in the room while my cousin and I were setting up for dinner and I just happened to stand right over a fan and my cousin "snapped" the picure! Sorry but, I couldn't resist sharing...|
|My cousin, Amy, was an absolute godsend and helped me "make" all of the decorations and decorate for the party! Don't worry I will do an entire post alone on that. Thank you Amy!|
|Can you tell my sis didn't like her Lasso of Truth?|
|You can't see but my brother-in-law is to the right of my sister and |
he gave me a great BIG smile as she "reacted" to my gift!!! It was an a-ha moment for me! I nailed it. :)

Alrighty, here's a taste of the dinner and decorations. More to come in the second post!
