My thoughts & snapshots were centered around my daughter's golden birthday.
Fourteen on October 14th.
It was like a gold mesh explosion. I hung it over the curtains, I laid it on the table for a runner, I draped it over the backs of the chairs and tied it with gold mesh bows held in place with gold pipe cleaners.
Bottles spray painted gold held golden roses. Gold curling ribbon and Christmas garland hung from the light. The banner I made from gold wrapping paper.
You can never have enough gold.
Am I right? Or am I right?
Her request for her birthday breakfast in bed was glazed donuts from Kwik Trip and a blended ice white chocolate campfire mocha from Caribou. (She knows the Caribou menu better than I do.) I told her to smile for the camera, but she said "I don't smile this early in the morning." Me either, actually.
She can smile at night though. Her birthday meal request was Buffalo Wild Wings. She wore that Birthday Buffalo hat like a boss.
The next day was the friends party. A sleep over at a local hotel where I get a discount since I work for the owners. Yay for bennies.
I arrived early and decked out the hotel room in gold before the girls got there.
I'm seriously considering lining an accent wall in the house with this gold mesh stuff. I'm kinda in love with it.
