April is birthday month in our family. My birthday is in a week and Big J's birthday is three days later. Today I was telling Melissa that I feel like I've lost a lot of brain cells since moving to Busan [ok, who am I kidding, I'm pretty sure the decline started after having my first child] because I just realized that I will turning 35 this year, not 36 [although my Korean age will be 36, so never mind]. Anyways, we're having an early birthday celebration next week with Big J's friends and then a smaller celebration on his actual birthday with my sister's family [who will be visiting from California]. Big J requested a "superhero" birthday party based on a drawing I did for him a few months ago. Freehand drawing is definitely not my forte, but Big J gave his stamp of approval so I suppose that's all that matters.
The color scheme of black + white + yellow was inspired by this photograph.
The invitations have been printed, packaged and delivered.
And the thank you cards are ready to be written in after the party. Now it is on to decorations + favors. More photographs to come!
Tomorrow Big J goes back to school and this week I plan to work on Big J's party preparations, go on a field trip with Big J's class, do my homework for my Korean lesson, catch up on emails [or try my best!], try out some new recipes, bake some lemon glazed cookies, exercise and spend some time with a friend who will be visiting from Oregon. Looks like it will be a good week! Have a good one! [Happy Easter to those who are celebrating!]
