Mother Overdo

My beauteous self seems to be on the verge of anxiety as the first birthday of baby jadon approaches.

why did i waste so much time and effort pondering over, computing, re-computing and thinking of dropping some details so we could spend a certain amount of money? i have never been profligate. but as the day of celebration nears, i am beginning to wonder why i let a simple thing as budget hinder me from availing of so many party needs that could brighten and enliven the party. worse, within this week, i get to read reviews and/or see pictures of the parties with the same theme but with all those trimmings! even if i let my budget go, i still could not get them at this time. argh!

i prayed for rain to prevent drought. i also wanted baby jadon to have it every birthday that he has. wanted baby jadon to celebrate his birthday with rain. just a drizzle. not even a downpour. so, why is the weather forecast showing a scattered t-storm on saturday? it would have been okay had the venue been inside the mall so people would not get wet or would have time to fix before showing up. but the entrance is outside, and without a roof! i really need to pray hard that during ingress and egress, there is not a drop. oh, and i should not forget to pray that the flood would subside so people could commute without hassle. haaay! but friends, don't take me wrong. i don't regret celebrating the birthday in august rather than october as earlier (way much earlier) planned, because it means i get to enjoy baby jadon two more months.

i gotta think positive thoughts. positive thoughts.

oh hey, i am so proud of my invites (patting myself on the back). i have sent it via email to tekkie friends and distributed them to relatives (mostly oldies who do not have emails). and because of limited gigaspace, i have only a few pics to choose from. i had to make do with the available one. i will upgrade either my pc or my celfone (with at least 3.2 megapixel) so i could have as many pics as i want to! soon, i promise myself. but not now, since celebrating a birthday has its price.

so, here's the invite...

<--------- The front page

<--------- The back page

there isn't a party without a banner. so, we would have ordered a tarpaulin. yep, would have. because it will be given to us for free by a generous guy. yey! i will have it in my hands tomorrow, (hoping that we would not have a typhoon, which would prevent me from coming to office and getting the tarp). since this pic was taken two or three weeks ago, it wasn't in the invites. sayang!

here is the tarpaulin

<----- isn't he divine????

i think that baby jadon would someday want to know who his guests were. hence, i made a very special guestbook. (1) instead of address, we put message. we are not really interested where our guests live, but we do want to remember their message to baby jadon. (2) instead of the usual straight lines, the blank spaces are highlighted by jadon's name. (3) we used pictures of baby jadon as a backdrop. and (4) there are pictures of baby jadon from august 2006 to july 2007 in between pages!*** i can't wait to show you the whole album!

this preparation inspires me to start scrapping! with a slow pc and a little creativity, wish me luck!


***I would have uploaded one of the pages, but it wont load and i gotta run.
