Happy Friday everyone!
I have a fairly busy weekend coming up as it is my little boy’s birthday! It’s his last year in the single digits and he’s super excited about being a big boy! We are having a party for him at home tomorrow but tonight is family time. We are taking him to his favorite Chinese restaurant, which coincidentally is owned by a family friend. We get a tiny bit of a discount not much but any type of discount is good! My parents and one of my sisters will be joining us and I think the bill will be around $65-$75 for 10 of us with plenty of left-overs!
As for his party, he asked that I make all his favorite foods. Thankfully, my mom will be over to help me!
On the menu:
- Egg rolls
- Fried Rice
- Lemongrass grilled chicken
- Veggies platter with homemade hummus
- Deviled eggs
- Grilled chicken salad
- BBQ Short ribs
- Gluten free, dairy free chocolate cookies
- Bake Brownies
My To Do List happens to also be a mile long!
Get the kiddies to help with cleaning the house inside and out tonight before dinner. Marinade the chicken & short ribs, make the hummus
- Hang some art & pictures we’ve had laying around for months.
Get cheap party favors at the dollar store. Pack some goodies (cookies & brownies) into the goody bags. Pick up one of my girlfriend’s son to stay the night with us. Order his cake!
Cook, pick up his cake, decorate the house. Have a party! Take lots of pictures of my little guy with all his friends. The party is only a few hours but sometimes we let a couple of his friends stay the night.
Read & study for my classes. This will probably take me at least 4 hours so I’m going to be up really early to try to get this done so I can spend the rest of the day doing other things.
- Run 5 miles & do lots of lunges and squats. FAIL
- Try to cook all my breakfast & lunches for the next week. I’ve never done this before but figure I’d try it if it helps me to free up some time for me. FAIL
I hope everyone has a good weekend!
