Paris? Oui! Oui!

I'm starting this post with a confession. . . . I'm a procrastinator. A huge procrastinator. If I can put it off I will. I need to wash my hair, "I can stretch it one more day." Laundry starts piling up, "I'm not wearing my emergency underwear yet." Payday means most people pay their bills. Not me. I wait until the very last minute. You would think that the fact that I live with my hairdresser I would never have an embarrassing amount of regrowth. It is what it is. I accept this about myself.

Why am I telling you all this? Because we celebrated Mom's birthday last month and I'm just getting around to editing pics and writing this post. Usually I procrastinate a post so long that I just forget it completely. Not this time. We worked too hard not to share.

If you know my Mom, she LOVES all things French, more particularly, Paris. While we would love a trip to the City of Light, financially, we'll just have a theme party.

I can't take any credit for the planning, that was ALL D.D. I just did as I was told.

 Backdrop for photos! All this work and I wish we had taken tons more.


The birthday girl!


The cake survived the two plus hour car ride in a box on my lap. D.D. did a FABULOUS job!

Why use candles when sparklers are so much more fun!

We had a super fun, long weekend full of laughs and fun! Happy Birthday Mom! We love you so much! You are an inspiration to us and we are so grateful that you are our mom.
