It’s September. Fall is just around the corner and Nora’s first birthday is in 5 days!
I’m still a little bit in disbelief, but mostly I’m incredibly excited for her birthday and her party, for which we are in full preparation mode. It’s on the 5th, which is 4 days away, but it’s a brunch — at 10 am — so we really need to have everything ready the night before…which is 3 days away. Friday and Saturday are going to be busy, busy, because Chris will be working both days and Mr. V will be here both days. (Gulp. I hope I can pull this off…)
Luckily, my dad is flying in for a visit Friday night, so I’ll have some reinforcements. We’re happy he’s going to be here for Nora’s first and it will be great for him to see her, considering the last time he saw her she was barely a person.
I’m in good shape so far. All the decorations are waiting to be hung.
You’ll have to wait until her birthday for a full view of the custom-made bunting, but everything matches and is in theme!
There’s a mega-cute birthday girl outfit ready to be worn.
Her birthday presents are wrapped, but out of sight.
The menu is planned:
- Tomato and Goat Cheese Crepes
- Cheese Strata
- Crispy Roasted Potatoes and Wilted Greens
- Applesauce Spice Cake
It’s pulling it off without our chef that makes me just a tiny bit nervous. Keep your fingers crossed and stay tuned.
