Milestone Birthdays…Does this mean I have to start lying about my age?
So I have a milestone birthday coming up in 2 weeks and I’m a bit indifferent about the whole thing, but it still kinda sucks. Almost all of my friends are older than I am so I’m not getting any sympathy from them, just the whole, “It’s about time!” or, “Really? I thought you were older…” comments which, really, I don’t know how to take. Do I look older that I am? I don’t think so. I got carded at the liquor store a few weeks ago. It was a total stretch but it made my day so I didn’t care! LOL. Then you think hmm do I make a big deal about this year’s birthday, or should I just sit at home and sulk?
Well, I figured nahhh let’s have a few drinks (which is funny because I don’t actually drink) and some apps. Hang out for a few hours and make it kid friendly if necessary. Here’s my dilemma. I’m kinda sick of the whole go out and buy apps and pre-made munchies. I don’t know what I’m getting myself into but I kinda want to make a few different ones, just to mix it up a bit. I found a bunch of fun alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages, which should be fun and colourful, cake I figured nah, not going to bother. I tried a few people to see if they could make something and everyone seems to be too busy so there goes the super cute fondant cake out the window, but that’s okay.
Decorations…ya right! More like plates, cups and cutlery so I don’t have to clean any dishes! I’m sure that’s a staple for a lot of people’s parties so I’m not ashamed to be too lazy to clean up after a party and I’m not the only one! LOL. I think that’s pretty much it. So I’m looking for a few good, quick and SUPER EASY appetizer recipes. I mean like the 5 min magical ones, not like cheese sandwich type ones. The fancy shmancy looking ones and some would need to be kid friendly too! Any suggestions would be fantastic!
