I Am A Crappy Party Planner

I have been a bad blogger. I got awarded then abandoned my blog. I really tried to keep up with all of you for a while, but alas, even that fell by the wayside. I won't make excuses for my bad behavior, other than life just got in the way. We are gearing up for a busy summer, so I won't lie to you all and say it won't happen again, but hopefully I will be soooo excited about all our adventures that I won't be able to wait to share them will you!

It is not only you, my bloggy friends, that I feel like I have been neglecting, by my live in person friends as well. You see, I have 3 great friends with birthdays in May. We will call them L, R and S. L and R are turning 30, so big deal celebration, right? I mean they took me to Austin to have a huge blowout bash. So, what are you going to do for these great friends you may ask. Not as much as I would like to. There are a few barriers in the way.

1. We are going camping Memorial Weekend (with the kiddos) and renting cabins as a group, so the money we would have spent on a party for them is going toward this trip.

2. L is preggo with twins, so no bars or drinking for her.

3. S is married to L so he's on a tight leash.

So here's what we are doing. We all went out for lunch last weekend for L's B-day. We are going out to a concert (Stoney LaRue) on Friday for R's B-day, and we are trying to get the whole crew together to BBQ and swim on Saturday. I am also taking R to get her nails done on Friday.

I feel pretty lame in the party planning department (especially considering most of what we are doing was not my idea). What to you all think? Do you have any ideas I can claim as my own? Only R will know the truth because she reads my blog. Hi ready for mani pedi pampering on Friday?

Girl, don't sweat it!
Blogging is very unimportant in the scheme of things and your friends understand about the b-day too! It sounds like lots of fun!

With L having twins and S married to L, she can just join in on our 33rd bash.. and R is going to have a blast going out on Friday.. and since L can't really go then R is going to join in on our 33rd(ish) bash :)

If anything else then.. let me think.. :)

love ya timon!

Well you guys already have that vacay planned so I'm sure they will understand! Maybe plan a little birthday something or other while you are on the trip? I think everything else sounds great!

And don't sweat it! You know your bloggy friends will still be around when you get back. :)

Please give your friend who is pregnant w/ twins my info if she wants to talk!!

Have a great time on your trip. Just enjoy it and try not to worry so much. Manis/pedis sound great to me. Or maybe brunch somewhere. Or you could bake some yummy stuff!

I think the BBQ thing sounds great. I love the laid back atmosphere - good friends and good food. Those who can drink can have a drink if they'd like....

That camping trip sounds like a whole lot of fun! The birthday ideas sound pretty good, too. Seems like being with friends should be an important part of that thirtieth celebration.
That, and chocolate. (Sorry, I couldn't resist)

Enjoy! And happy birthday, R!
