While I love birthdays, I'm not crazy about the planning and execution process that goes into each party. It took me a while to accept this about myself since I have several friends who throw such cute and well-organized...
My husband travels for work sometimes and 5:00 P.M. never fails to creep up on me. Suddenly, I have two hungry monsters on my hands (three if I count my own hungry self!) and a refrigerator with no leftovers....
