Counting down three weeks

So we spent the evening at Las Palmas Park in Sunnyvale where we'll be having Sophie's first birthday party. It's a gorgeous park- towering palm trees, large ponds, rolling fields, and awesome play structures for kids. We reserved a picnic area big enough for 40 people although it's probably going to be closer to 25, if not less.

I ordered her a personalized birthday banner from Etsy (I thought it'll be nice to start a tradition of having something special that we'll be able to use again and again for her many birthdays to come) and we're probably going to get two dozen balloons and maybe a few bottles of bubbles (who doesn't love blowing bubbles?) so it'll be fun and festive. We've sent the invites out and are just waiting for people to RSVP so we know how many cupcakes to order. I decided to go with Sprinkles in the end mainly because I really, really love their red velvet cupcake AND they actually do a vegan version of it so I can get one for Sophie too! It would not be nice if the birthday girl didn't get a yummy Sprinkles cupcake on her birthday...

So there- bubbles, balloons, and cupcakes. A first birthday. In three weeks. Oh goody goody... :)
