On her actual bday 2/22, I had planned to get her pictures taken, go to Build a Bear and then get her nails done after naps. Thanks to a lovely stomach virus, I only felt up to hitting the nail salon that day. She was a little nervous at first, but warmed up quickly. She told me, "I wanna go again" as we were walking out the door.
We rescheduled the pictures and Build a Bear for Saturday, stopping by Starbucks while we were out since Buggy kept telling me, "I just can't live without it."
I tried really hard to convince her to make the St Patrick's Day bear, but she insisted on the peace sign bear, with a St Patrick's shirt and Hello Kitty panties. Being the frugal lady that I am, I just have to mention that our Build a Bear excursion only cost us $7.
I love coupons!
Sunday was the big party and while I had visions a hippie chick themed party, Miss Katie knew immediately she wanted nothing but princess decor! It was fun, but just let me say, I am super glad that this was our last party for the year!
Every treat we served was gluten free. It was so cute when Buggy looked at all the treats and went to grab a pretzel but first asked..."This safe for me?"
Speaking of gluten free, I hit the jackpot at Dillon's over the weekend. I spent $44.96, but saved $47.49 and included in that was 10 boxes of honey nut Chex for only $1.29/box!! AND for buying those I have a $3/any purchase for my next visit. I love that Chex has made the majority of their varieties GF and I hear buzz in the GF world that Kellogg's Rice Krispies will soon be GF too! It's about time!
On Monday, we took leftover party supplies and cupcakes to daycare for Katie to share with her friends. I was really happy to have these cupcake papers and toppers that I'd gotten for free so that I didn't have to make any.
Now maybe I'll have some free time to do some projects for myself and try some new recipes!
