Donut Stop Believin'

How is it even time for this???????  HOW IS MY SWEET BABY BOY ABOUT TO TURN ONE???

I just don't really know what to say about it, except that I am terribly terribly excited (and also tremendously sad.  Let's be real.)

Our plan for his birthday this year is to gather with his biggest supporters, eat obscene amounts of donuts, and celebrate a life that might not have been.

We might sing a little Journey, as the title of this post suggests.

There will ALSO be, for the intrepid souls brave enough, a one mile Donut Dash-- 5 laps, 4 donut pit stops along the way, and a pretty sweet donut medal for those who cross the finish line.  So much silliness and so much fun!

I was going to send out an Evite, but it occurred to me that there are many people who have been our biggest supporters for whom I do not have an email address.  If you are able to join us that day, send me an email or a Facebook message and I will give you the details.

Less than a month! Inconceivable!

And yet, two very important things coming up before that:

1) THE GARAGE SALE FROM HADES.  It has consumed my life for the last month.  Something bit me and I decided I needed to get rid of 4000 pounds of junk from our house.  And my dad's house.  And my sister's house.

It all goes down this weekend.  I am not sure we will survive. But if we do, we are taking our hard-earned dollars and spending them all in...

2) DISNEY WORLD!!!!!!!!  One week.  Cannot wait.


  1. What a great idea! Can't believe that you miracle baby is going to be one! Love the invitation.

  2. Your energy puts me to shame. How do you do it ALL????? Enjoy the good times and yes, CELEBRATE a dear and precious life!

  3. So now I have Journey's don't stop believin' in my head. Apparently, that's all it takes. I am an 80s girl through and through.

    Love the donut theme (and the Journey reference) and the whole idea. Just awesome. I wish I could be there but Calgary to Georgia is a bit of a commute. Count me among his supporters anyway and I will have a Tim Horton's donut in Parker's honour (man, I am tossing out Canadianisms right and left tonight!).

    Enjoy the Love that comes with this special milestone.

    Corinne (and Sam)

    I'm back!! Little Miss Secretive Writing Project is complete, at last!! {Lord willing. He calls the shots!!} Oh, it feels so good to be back!! ;)
    "Our plan for his birthday this year is to celebrate a life that might not have been.". This touched my deepest emotions. You know what? Birthdays are milestones. No matter what the year. Whether it be one. Or in my case next year, 30!! Birthdays are milestones. Especially when you fought for the advancement of your age!! ;-D
    I cannot join you for Parker's birthday party. Sadly. However, I will be there in spirit!! You shall feel my presence. It will be creepy!! You're welcome!! ;)

    Happy Mother's Day, Friend!! ;)
