So this weekend is my little girl's 10th birthday and I am a wreck. She's my one and only baby girl. My Little Bit. My mini me. My Muffin. How on earth can she be 10?!! It was just yesterday when I called my mom and said "hey, so... I think I may be in labor.." and now we are talking about how many boys she can invite to her Luau. BOYS!?!??! Um no honey.
I thought my husband was going to come up of the couch he's been holding down for days when she said boys. Ha! Hubby is a truck driver and Monday he had his first and God willing his last, 18 wheeler wreck. He's in pain. A lot of pain. So it was almost comical to see him try and whip around to look at her.
She lowered her head and batted her big brown doe eyes at him and of course he melted. My husband is Little Bit's step father but he couldn't love her anymore if she was his own flesh and blood. So, he gave in and there will be two boys at the Luau, which in her mind means lots of boys.
So we are Luauing on a budget. Yes, that is a word. Isn't it? No? Ok well now it is. I just decided. We will be making the cake, pig poke cookies and fruit kabobs. THIS should be interesting.
Don't get me wrong, I'm talented. I can make jewelry like nobody's business. If you need something crafty, I'm your gal. But cooking... not.. my ... strong suit. I'll update with pictures as we go so you can see what I'm talking about. It's sure to be hilarious. I can see it now.... (insert flash forward bubble above my head and dream like music)... flour splashed all over the counter, our white pomeranian Phoebe covered in pink, blue and purple icing.... pineapples, strawberries and grapes haphazardly thrown on top of a tray. I repeat... it should be interesting.
This is what the fruit Kabobs are SUPPOSED to look like.
AND the cake I'm going to attempt
I totally have to work on figuring out how to put pictures in this blog. It's a work in progress.
