Ep. 31 - Birthdays! How do you celebrate them?
Hey everybody! We are talking "Happy Birthdays" this week! Of course, our mothers and grandmothers didn't give this topic the kind of thought and time our pinterest-generation does now, but who cares?! Haha! It's fun to talk about!
Courtney mentioned the Whatever Blog's Rainbow Cake. Sometimes she uses cake mix to make it and sometimes a homemade white cake. (Here's Courtney's favorite homemade White Cake recipe -- hands down the best!) We both have made the rainbow cake and it's not nearly as intimidating as it looks. Here's Jennifer's version from 5 years ago:
If you don't remember the "jeans story" Jennifer mentioned, you can go back and listen to this episode to hear about it. Check out the video of Charlotte winning the jackpot at a birthday party at Chuck E Cheese!
And yes, Courtney's first daughter's second birthday party theme WAS Sesame Street (she finally remembered!). Here's a link to those characters she created and mentioned. We mentioned going around the table and "filling each other's buckets" - How Full is Your Bucket? is a cute book about encouraging others.
From our "I'm Totally Into..." segment:
Have a great week, mamas!
