When a Plan Comes Together

I love it when a plan comes together. My sweet little Abby wanted a birthday party this year. I knew the chances of us having a birthday party with friends just one month after moving to AZ would be slim... I mean, school is out, and she probably will just be getting to know people!

In the midst of all of the chaos, I decided to let her have an early birthday/going away party. Don't worry, I made it easy. We are going to the "Y" to go swimming (it is FAR too cold to swim outside here--unless you think 58 degrees is warm). We are coming back to the packed house after for Pizza and Cake on paper... easy enough.

I AM pretty proud of myself for the party favors... I was returning some items to Michaels, and low and behold they had these little cuties right at the check out counter for $1 each...
A little journal with pen, some cutie pie stickers AND a little piece of jewelry.. just what every girly girl needs..

Wrap them up in cute little bags with a little ribbon and voila. Party favors.
Done.

Oh, and you like the color of those bags do ya?? Well, last night I went to get my toes done before our foray into AZ, and I found a color called... SEXY.Little orange, little pink, little red... Lotta BOLD, it took a while to grow on me... but now I think it is definitely.. SEXY!

You are sexy indeed; from toe to head. But especially in your head. ;)

Just had and "orange" birthday party for my 11 year old daughter. I LOVE your bags. I am not creative like that. Thanks for the idea for future use!

Oh, and love your toes! I can't go without my toes painted. My feet look yucky without color!

I envy the "Martha" in you. the party favors were nothing to you, but I would NEVER make such cute little bags! Love them.

Darling party favors. Love the toe color too. Now I'm curious about your blog title... are your legs really long and can we see how long they are?

LOVE the color! I am a party planner so this is right up my alley!

I came here via Kelly's swap blog and wanted to say hello. I LOVE Arizona (part of my childhood was spent there) so I hope it will be great!

I love your toes. I want to compare the color to mine. Yours might be a little more orange than mine.

Great job on the party. I am impressed you were able to pull it all off amidst a move.
