24 girls, a birthday party and cooking. Can you say 'mom's a little nuts?'

Sometimes I wonder why I do the things I do.
Savvy begged for a birthday party this year and since I haven't really thrown a big one for her, I decided too!
She is a gymnast and of course you can't invite a couple people from the team, you have to invite them all!
She invited 15 gymnasts, 5 school friends and 4 neighbor friends because they 
aren't all going to say yes, right?
They all said yes.

So the theme was a cooking party.
Seriously, 24 girls cooking.

Again, what was I thinking?
I was desperately trying to find some cheap way of making it a great night, so we made pizzas and decorated mini cakes.
BUT the coolest part was me calling Barnes and Noble, telling them what I was doing and what I needed and them saying...
let me check.
 I got a phone call back saying they found some discounted kitchen kits that were normally $14.99 and I could get them for $2.00 a piece.
WOW and WOW.
This is what they were...
Complete with a cookbook, apron, measuring spoons, wooden roller pin, spoon and chef's cap.
It was an awesome deal. So lesson learned, do your research because there are awesome deals out there!


Someone's excited!
The insanity begins!


It was awesome.
And I will never do it again
(at least not that many girls)
Love my sweet birthday girl!
