How is your week going? Mine is going a little bumpy but it is good.
I know I haven’t been here in a while but since my online store is almost done you will enjoy my blogs more often!
Today’s TBT is about my daughter’s birthday.
I had the best ballerina dream theme plan. I was going to do a very big birthday because I remember that my 8th ballerina theme birthday party was so awesome (will post picture on another TBT blog).
I had the place, the menu, the decorations, the bakery, EVERYTHING!!, but the day of the party I was on a funeral giving the last good bye to my uncle Hector who died of cancer, so I have to cancel all the plans.
The same day that I was printing the invitations to mail them I found out that my Uncle had cancer and it was spreading rapidly all over. He did found out that he had cancer a long time ago but for some reason (that I do not understand) he kept it from his wife, children, sisters, nieces basically from everybody. I will blog about him soon.
That day I decided to cancel everything and Thank God I did.
My daughter didn’t know anything because it was a surprise party so what we decided to do was to take her to Time Square to have some fun. We went to Toys R Us (which is sadly closing), the M&M store, Disney Store and a bunch of other places.
We had so much fun! She took her favorite cousin with her. I promised myself not to post all 500 pictures but here are some.
SHE WOKE UP SO HAPPY SHE WAS EIGHT!
I SWEAR SHE IS NOT WEARING MAKEUP (she made me said that to her dad she is actually wearing my pink lipstick)!
HER FAVORITE LITTLE COUSIN!
I TOOK THIS PICTURE 3098903672846 TIMES AND I COULDN’T GET IT RIGHT (yes she is the princess the only girl)!
THE BIG 8!
PEACE & LOVE
SOME DANCE WARM-UPS JUST BECAUSE WE WERE GOING TO WALK SO MUCH!!
TOYS R US!
We did enjoy Toys R Us closing sales. We finally found a mug with her name on the M&M Store (after like 5 tries), We ate the best warm Nuts and of course we ate the most delicious Hot Dog ever! I mean who doesn’t eat a Hot Dog in TIME SQUARE?!
I can’t believe she is 8! I am so thankful because the type of person she is. She is caring, so loving, so kind. She has the warmest heart. She always has a kind word for everybody and she will defend everybody (specially if they are being bully). She loves to prove people wrong but most important she has love for everybody (even for those who don’t show her love). One of the things that I admire about her is that she is very honest and blunt, she will let you know about her feelings. I wish I can be like that!
Although she loves her mommy she is 100% a daddy’s girl. Her favorite brother is Brandon (the oldest), her second favorite is Luis (the youngest) and her least favorite is Danny (the second), don’t get me wrong though she will get very feisty if you mess with one of them (specially Danny is a mess).
She did enjoy her Birthday Weekend. On the day of her birthday, she celebrate it on her school with cupcakes and goody bags full of candy, in the evening we went to IHOP (her favorite place to go only for her birthday), the next day we ate her favorite pizza and got chocolate cake and ice cream wasted (after my uncle’s funeral). On the third day we went to Time Square. The last day which was a Sunday after we went to eat Bruch at her favorite Buffet we all relax in the living room, we ate all the candy left from the goody bags and watched 3 Harry Potter’s movie (we went to sleep extremely late because they had the week after off).
I hope you have a very productive week.
