An Hour In a Day

I am so excited to be sharing my new meme with week with Stasha! I hope you have all enjoyed making your list of 10 things you do in an hour of your day! Don’t forget to link up with me as well. It’s like a twofer!

My hour begins on Saturday evening at 4:30.

1. I got my creative cap on and made an impromptu cupcake stand.

Step 1: Take a cake stand and stick an empty glass in the center, then fill with pretty things.

Step2: Stick pretty plate on top, stick smaller glass thingy in the middle and Voile!

I was a little proud of myself.

2. Make Pizza for little man’s birthday dinner bash.

3. Freak out a little because camera stops working. I was seriously almost in tears thinking I might not get pictures of my final first birthday celebration!

4. Breathe a sigh of relief when camera begins working again and sing “It’s his party, he can cry if he wants to.”

5. Release the babe because he is all done and doesn’t care to wait for the rest of us to eat.

6. Sing Happy Birthday to my boy. Try desperately not to cry.

7. Watch baby boy perform the rite of passage of mushing cupcake absolutely everywhere.

8. Presents!

9. It’s not a big family birthday unless everyone plays with your presents.

10. Say farewell to the spousal unit as he takes off with Miss L to the instacare. Apparently, it’s not a birthday at our house without a trip to the doctor. My girl injured herself at gymnastics practice the day before and after nearly 24 hours was still hobbling and in pain. It was just a bad sprain, but she gets to wear a fancy and expensive boot for 5 days.

Whew! That was quite the hour! I don’t know about you, but I’m pooped! Next week, come back on Tuesday and link up An Hour from your day! Make a list, make it a picture post, an essay, a poem; pretty much anything that represents an hour from your day!!

  10. Happy birthday to your little man! We celebrated my daughter’s first birthday a week ago, so I feel you on being pooped! I didn’t make a cupcake stand, though – that’s a cute idea! We just piled the cupcakes on a big plate, but she still got to smear them all over her face, which is the important part. 🙂

    Happy Birthday to your sweet little guy! I can’t believe he is already one. I am impressed with your cupcake stand. You are so clever. Poor Miss L. At least it wasn’t stitches!!

  21. I’m impressed that you fit in a trip to the doctor’s in that hour! That was a busy hour! Loved the pics of your little guy! Happiness is squishing a cupcake then shoving it in your mouth 🙂

  23. I remember my oldest son’s first birthday — I was taking the cake I made from scratch out to my in-laws — his grandmother’s house. It was so hot the cake slid apart. We had to stop by a supermarket and buy a sheetcake. ha. I’m sure I was traumatized but I don’t remember being too upset.

I was going to apologize for being late, however, this just made my day…it being Wednesday, it was perfect timing to get me over the “hump” of mid-week. Congratulations on your baby turning one! And I hope your daughter is feeling better.
