I can NEVER write a blog in 30 minutes! Last Friday's post took me all morning. I think I take so long because I'm terrible about adding too many links into my posts--I have to pull up the page, copy and paste the url, add the link, etc. Photos always take a while, too, having to find them, post them, and then move them around to where I want them. I might just try this; although I might not get to it until tonight. Thanks for the challenge! :)

I totally understand! Notice there are NO photos in this post!


Your daughter sounds like mine. How fun! Just imagine how the parties will be in a few years. :)

The best way to make purple frosting is to get purple food coloring at Michael's or a similar craft store (or a real cake decorating store, if such exists near you).

I like the basic Artisan bread in 5 Minutes a Day recipe for easy pizza crust. Actually, I love that book for about a million reasons, but the ability to make pizza is definitely one of the reasons.


BTW, I'm looking forward to seeing the pictures, especially the cake! :D


Post writing sure does take a big chunk of time. I can't do the seven days a week gig. My posts are usually way too long, I think. Maybe 30 minutes would keep things more concise.
As to purple, I second the Michael's suggestion. Do not assume you can get a good purple from simple food coloring red + blue= purple. Not so. It = gray.
Make sure and take pix of the cake! My 2 yr old g-d E is already talking about her (Oct) b-day cake. She wants Elmo cupcakes, just like last year. I tried to talk her into Abby Cadabby, but, nope, she wants her old friend Elmo!

I love that you used e-vites! How very "green" of you. :)
We keep our birthday parties really simple these days. If we do it at the park or pool, balloons are pretty much it. At home, I just pull things from around the house and use them in creative ways to make it fit the child's party. As far as favors, we stay clear from plastic junkies that get thrown out almost immediately and opt for a few eco-friendly art supplies instead.

I'm stopping by through Steady Mom's 30 Minute Challenge. I hope you'll do the same! You can find me @ http://sofiasideas.com/


Hm, 30 minutes? Not sure how possible that is. One needs really good typing speed, and even then, how about thinking time? Often, I do get a short post done in that amount of time, but sometimes the content requires more time and length. I think I will refrain from setting time limits on myself. (Even as a teacher, I did not like to set time restraints on students taking quizzes and tests.) Of course, if I could hold everything to 30 minutes, I might have time to do more...hm...

Frankly, 30 minutes was very hard for me!
