March Madness! Busiest Birthday Week Antics!

March was a bit mad, a lot mad, we like it that way! Prepare for this one to be a LONG POST , Birthdays and baby showers kept us nice and busy with things to be organising.

It was my fiancé’s 28th birthday, then the following day it was little mans first birthday party!! then during the week his actual birthday, and to top it all off the weekend saw the arrival of my darling goddaughters first birthday and her party too! 🙂

Full of busy and so many pictures and details I have to share and they are a tad late! OOPS!

Landon’s first birthday party consisted of just a few very close family and friends, as i decided madly to cater most of the event buffet food myself (bar the sandwiches and decorative desserts) and I picked a nice small room that would hold about 30 people. Genius. I couldn’t have had physically anymore people there and it meant it was just a dead small personal event for us.

His party theme was Jungle Carnival. I got stuck between a gorgeous jungle cake i had found, (CAKES-BY-KAREN—– https://www.facebook.com/cakes.bykaren.39) and some gorgeous carnival party decor from Fisher Price on an American website. Anyway we combined the ideas into one jungle carnival party!

I’m clearly going to be quite excited about the cakes and cake-pops and give-aways again! 🙂 here’s a few pics of the venue and the edibles!

Some of the food I made at home was some basic cupcakes, a huge stack of mars bar crispie and lots of other savoury items including little homemade quiches which although i don’t eat I was excited to make in my new mini pink quiche dishes! (SAD MUMMY)

As for our outfits, daddy bears doesn’t count, no one cares about his OOTD, as pregnant as i was it was not easy to find something that looked dressy but not too over the top, so i decided on a plain navy dress, heavily accentuating the rotund protrusion that is THE BUMP, tights and some trusty Kurt Geiger Ellison boots.

Little Guy wore a giraffe outfit to start, because quite frankly, who doesn’t love a baby dressed up as an animal!! And then he wore a Nautica shirt, tie and waistcoat ensemble, with Ralph Lauren Shoes, —–OBVIOUSLY RALPH

It was great to see everyone and celebrate with them our little guy’s First Birthday, couldn’t believe it was nearly a year since I had been in hospital having my c-section! He certainly wasn’t just 8lb 4oz and 24 inches long anymore. He’d grown in since and mischief levels!

When we got home I allowed him to open some presents a few days early! My word had he been spoilt. I wish I could even remember them all now just a month later to post about my gratitude.

Antics of the Birthday Week! 

Luckily daddy bear could take the next day off work, so even if it meant his birthday ‘day’ was daddy free he would at least have had one day in the week with both of his parents together to celebrate. So in true ‘pregnant whale’ fashion I treated us all to a carvery meal at our local ‘Toby Carvery’. It’s safe to say we managed to supersize and eat A LOT.

Of course the trip wouldn’t be complete without a little jaunt to the shops nearby! Where in true ‘me’ fashion i found some fab Ralph Lauren goodies for the BUMP, and Landon got some toys and clothes too! Mummy got a new bag and some hair products which were reduced! YEY!

The next two days consisted of pre-birthday excursions for the little guy! A friend and I took him to the local beach on a sunnier day, shock horror, a sunny day in England. OK! It was 8 degrees i chose to not wear a coat and till this day I regret it! But it looked misleadingly warm! Here he enjoyed plenty of mummys fish and chips! (THIEF), ice cream and plenty time in the park.

FIRST BIRTHDAY-DAY!

The day was finally here! His birthday! eek! A full year the little guy had been causing turmoil in our home! :)The day was pretty chilled, car jaunt with ‘Auntie Charlie’ to, it’s safe to say he was well and truly spoiled, I only wish i’d taken more pictures of him with his presents from mum and dad! However he did get plenty with his toy kitchen and Toy Ferarri ride on!

As if he thought the fun was over the next day on our mummy and Landon adventures he went for lunch and then swimming with another pregnant bud of mine 🙂 To which her boyfriend reminded us that we were little whales going back to our home environment! The cheek!

FINALLY! An end to the week! And the only thing we had left to celebrate was my goddaughter’s first birthday ❤ Blessed to be her god mummy! Her party was all ladybug themed and gorgeous! I know she was spoiled on her day.
