11.23.14: November Baby

Hello, dolls! 🙂 Aaah what a week. The first half of my week was pretty stressful because of work. One thing that I realized and understood during my “stressful work days” is why Chefs can come off as pissy or short tempered. We work a lot of hours on our feet, we could spend 6 hours cooking a perfect dish, and aaah don’t even get me started with the yeah, it only takes one stubborn person to piss us off,especially if that person doesn’t understand food — and what we do!

So anyway, this is going to be an easy weekend for A and I (yay!!!) Date night tonight, a short Saturday work day for us…then 2 days off! Aaah DSC_0009A

Work is going to be extra exciting now because I will have one of my good friends working with me!!  DSC_0001A

I can’t wait to work with Frances again. So for the meantime, let me talk about my favorite boy’s 1st birthday party (that happened about 7 months ago #yikes haha)

Baby Roger’s birthday is a week before mine, so I just knew we would be best friends forever!!! Although I must say, he loves A more. haha

DSC_0002AMeet George Roger Black IV, this is the face he makes when he sees balloons.


The welcome table.

Frances’ homemade granola bars for the guests, the witty chalkboard with some facts about baby Roger,and the thumbprint canvas as the guestbook.

DSC_0013A DSC_0017ADSC_0007AI love Frances’ granola bars!!!! I am guilty, I took about 5 bags. haha #SorryNotSorry

The theme of the party was “little monsters”


Best of friends

A and I arrived before the party to help the Roger and Frances with the party. A helped Roger with the food, and I helped Frances set up.

The Titas took forever to set up, the baby got bored.

“Do I really have to change, Mom?”

Baby Roger’s Birthday Cake

Her idea was to have a smash cake, but since baby Roger is like his Mom — nice and quiet, he seemed like he did not want to smash his birthday cake! haha
