A big day

It's a big day in our house today.

Maddie had a birthday...

And I got my award...
For those of you who are dying to see what a cheapskate can buy for under $65 (shoes and jewelery included)...
It was a lovely day, all in all. My presentation went smashingly well (despite the HUGE pressure of presenting in front of a room full of professional communicators), there were no technical glitches with the multi-media part of the presentation, and Maddie was happy with her pink cupcakes.
(I think I deserve Supermom of the Year award, too, for pulling off made-from-scratch cupcakes with pink icing AND sparkles for her whole grade 1 class! It's probably a little guilt, though, for being in India over her 6th birthday. Oops - guess I just lost Supermom status.)

You look smashing. Glad everything went well and I'm sure Maddie would still call you her 'SuperMom'!

Both the clothes and the cupcakes look good.

That photo of Maddie with you below her sure makes her look like she's your daughter! Maybe one day the roles will be reversed and she'll be standing up there and you'll be the support person. Congrats again.

I am TOTALLY impressed with the outfit, very polished and professional but without losing out on personality. Congratulations on the award.
