Cousin K’s First Birthday Party at Play Street Museum in McKinney ( Momimhar posted on November 10th, 2017 )
Few weeks ago my darling daughter and I were invited to cousin K’s 1st birthday party at Play Street Museum in McKinney (TX). Oh how time flies so fast.
There are a lot of fun things going on this summer vacation. Besides swimming classes for darling daughter, birthday parties and special event invitations are keep coming in.
Yesterday, DD got invited to a birthday pool party. It was not a Luau Party. Just a typical kids pool party. Darling daughter enjoyed it very much. As you know, she likes swimming. My dear friends and I watched over the young ones because the pool was quite deep. That is why wearing a life preserver is very important even in a shallow pool. Age-appropriate and US Coast Guard approved life jackets should always be handy, and adult supervision is advised on young children.
As for the party, my dear friends and I had fun catching up while the kids were swimming in the pool. This is the very first time K and I went to a pool party. There were lots of food and we met new friends. It was awesome.
Chayote Squash and Pork Stir-Fry At Potluck 1980s Themed Birthday Party ( Momimhar posted on January 18th, 2017 )
Filipino-American moms got together for a 1980s themed birthday party for our dear friend R four days ago. Most of us grew up in the 80s and 90s and when someone suggested the 80s theme birthday party, we all went nuts. LOL.
Anyway, it was a potluck party. Everyone brought special dishes for all to enjoy. Made some Chayote Cabbage with Pork Stir-Fry.
I don’t cook that often at home. But when I do, I stay in my kitchen until the food is cooked and the place is cleaned.
1 lb. pork (for stir fry)
3 cloves garlic, crushed
1 small onion, chopped
1 tbsp. olive oil
2-3 pcs. chayote squash, peeled and cut into cubes (bite size)
1 beef bouillon cube
1 cup water
salt and pepper to taste
- In medium heat, saute garlic and onion until brown and soft.
- Add pork. Stir fry for about 5-8 minutes until pork is brown.
- Sprinkle a dash of salt and a dash of black pepper.
- Simmer for 5 minutes while cooking in it’s own sauce. Stirring while simmering.
- Add chayote squash, water, and the beef bouillon. Stir to blend and let simmer for 5-10 minutes or until the vegetables and meat are tender. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
- Serve hot with rice.
Everyone had a great time at the party, I think. Especially when we started the disco and karaoke in the evening.
K’s 6th birthday celebration was amazing. She has been wanting to go to Sweet & Sassy and have a walk on their stage/runway in the store. Obviously, she wanted to have a fashion show there. She told me that she wanted her birthday held at Sweet & Sassy. My dear husband and I talked about the plan and he said book the party ahead of time to avoid the hassle of December party rush.
So here’s K and her dear family and friends at her 6th birthday party Fashion Runway at Sweet & Sassy in Garland (Texas).
Besides being a salon and store, Sweet & Sassy offers party options for kids. You can choose from six party packages here. In addition to that, you can also get add ons to the party package you have selected. Goody bags, Make-your-own Spa items, or a Limo ride are some of the options that you can customized. I added goody bags as giveaways to our guests. The girls loved it because they got to pick the items they like.
The hostess and the crew were very friendly and lively. Their cheerfulness kept the children engaged in all the activities during the party. There was no dull moment. What added to K’s enjoyment during her party was the music played. Her favorites: Shake It Off by Taylor Swift, Can’t Stop The Feeling by Justin Timberlake from the movie Trolls, and one that I can’t remember…sorry. 🙂
I think it was a great party. K said she had an amazing day. I hope our guests had a great time, too. Thanks for the time and, also, for the birthday presents.
