Party Party

So at the end of November was my BFF Sharon's birthday. It's always right around Thanksgiving so she was a turkey baby. =) Of course we had a party for her complete with pumpkin spice cupcakes.

I make these pumpkin spice cupcakes quite a bit in the fall/winter. I love them! I got the recipe from Pam over at Relatively Reagan. These cupcakes are so moist and tasty! I usually use cream cheese frosting from a can or I'll make my grandmother's cream cheese frosting and use that.

We re-used the banner we made for our friend's Matt's birthday back in March. I think it will be tradition now to put it up for everybody's birthday.

My ladies!

Sadly I was not very well prepared for this party and I did not have any candles for Sharon to blow out... This also happened last year on her birthday. But we always look on the bright side and just grabbed my big soy candle and lit that for her to blow out. We're so resourceful, right? ;-)

We also played board games. One was a game Sharon brought called Wise and Otherwise, which was new to me. Basically each card has an old saying on it with the latter part left out and you have to fill in what it might be and people vote on the best ones. It was pretty cool! I love making up stuff so that was fun for me.

In summary, I love parties. =)

Hopefully at some point I will get around to re-capping this past weekend was pretty much completely full for me. I need a few days to re-adjust my sleep schedule, haha.
