What's cooking this week?

We are a week away from Ella's first birthday party, there is still so much to do! There will be anywhere from 35-45 people (plus about 8-10 kids)! Stephen's parents arrive from NY tomorrow and mine will be here on Thursday. I've got the meals planned for the week but as far as the food for the party....I have not a clue. Okay, I have an idea but nothing has been finalized. I guess I better get on that NOW!
Tonight: Taco Sunday!
Monday: Pasta with leftover Sunday Sauce and salad
Tuesday: Apricot Chicken and green beans
Wednesday: Margherita Pizza and salad
Thursday: Pulled Pork with corn bread, sweet potatoes and cole slaw

We've had a busy, busy day so far. This morning we got up and out early so we could go down to Orlando for Ella's birthday photo shoot. She did great, as soon as I have the photos you know I'll be posting them. We can not wait to see them! She wanted absolutely nothing to do with smashing cake! I was surprised she wasn't at least a little curious about it, whether she wanted to eat it or not. We could hardly get her to be near the cake let alone sit and smash it. Regardless, I'm sure our photographer got plenty of good shots! Ella had a blast running around the park especially when she was barefoot. I think it tired her out a bit...
We just took this sleepy, dirty girl home, gave her a bath and she's snoozing away. I'd like to join her for a nap but there is too much party planning and house cleaning that must be done! One week to go!

  1. She is so stinkin' cute. I just wanna come right through the screen & snuggle her! :)

  2. Gracie hated the cake too. BIG meltdown. She didn't even entertain it at her 2 year party. Maybe 3? Happy Birthday Ella!
