My sister's actually birthday was on Thursday and that night we had the "official" celebratory family dinner, friends included. Friday was a low-key pool day and so much fun drinking Mango Madres in 115 degree weather. Now, Saturday was the real party day! All in all, it was an absolute blast!
We couldn't have the party without shortbread WW cookies!
It's me at the dinner!
The birthday girl's all important present fro me: Lasso of Truth and the magic bracelets.
The birthday girl asked for strawberry cake pops and I "opted" for themed ones -
in none other than red, blue and gold glitter!!!
It was a tad bit hot in the room while my cousin and I were setting up for dinner and I just happened to stand right over a fan and my cousin "snapped" the picure! Sorry but, I couldn't resist sharing...
My cousin, Amy, was an absolute godsend and helped me "make" all of the decorations and decorate for the party! Don't worry I will do an entire post alone on that. Thank you Amy!
Can you tell my sis didn't like her Lasso of Truth?
You can't see but my brother-in-law is to the right of my sister and
he gave me a great BIG smile as she "reacted" to my gift!!! It was an a-ha moment for me! I nailed it. :)

Alrighty, here's a taste of the dinner and decorations. More to come in the second post!
