  1. You good mama. That party looks AMAZING!

  2. Too cute! Nice work. No matter how "easy" it looks birthday parties are a lot of work!

    Now I want to know where to get those chickent fries!

    Happy Birthday!!!

  3. Anne,

    Does Schwan's deliver where you live? They are a home delivery company. Some of their stuff is pricey, but I really like their vegetables and some other dairy-free items they have.
