Friday Night (In the Morning) Fab Five: How Many Candles?

Before we get the Fab Five, here's a video of Toot's birthday. First, I forgot to record us singing to her so I had to get everyone to sing again. :P Second, she was so invested in this cupcake that I really think she could not have cared less what we were doing. lol

And on we go!

Welcome to another Friday Night Fab Five where I list 5 fab things for the week. Since my birthday is in 5 days I thought I'd highlight 5 things (more specifically 5 things from Etsy) I am currently drooling over and sure to add to my wish list this year. (The good thing about having a birthday in October is Christmas is so close you can use the same wish list for everything. :P) I'm also posting this week's Five in the morning instead of tonight because later on I will be posting my party post for Vanessa's Halloween blog party.

So without further ado, I'm pleased to present:

  2. LMAO, that is the best video ever. Her face is totally priceless. I love love love it :) She's way too cute.

  3. Oh my gosh, Toot is so stylin' in the white fur and pink satin ribbon. Your right she does not care less about the singing, just don't move the cupcake.

  7. First off, Maggi you have a growing star in Toot! she is not only beautiful, but able to play up to the camera as well.. I see a future already! I love your birthday wishes and don't you think once in our lifetime, we should be able to throw and recieve the exact birthday we want!! I do!

  8. I really wish I could see that video of Toot, but I assume its a youtube link because it's just blank for me. Youtube is blocked here at work.

    ANYWAY, we both have birthdays in October! I just celebrated mine this past Tuesday. And you are SO RIGHT about the wish list - I love that I make one, and it works for both my birthday and Christmas. On top of that, you are still surprised because you don't know which gifts you will actually get for your birthday. And by the time Christmas rolls around, you've forgotten what you put on the list in the first place :-).
