Kierstyn's Birthday Money Breakdown

Remember The Meredith Birthday Party Plan 2010? Back in March when we implemented this, I was already dreading September. Why? Because I just knew that Kierstyn would want to plan a huge, labor-intensive, creative party (that girl has been making big plans since the day she was born!). She had 6 long months to plot and plan ideas for her birthday party--eeek!

But you wanna know the CrAzY thing? She decided not to have a birthday party at all. Of course we had a birthday cake in M'boro with cousin Mia. And then she took our whole family out to the Japanese steakhouse for her birthday dinner (her favorite!). On Friday (yes, 2 weeks after her birthday) she decided to have a good friend spend the night. We got a cookie cake, ice cream, M&Ms, and a movie. That qualifies as a "party," right?
Easiest birthday party of the three. Who would've guessed?!

Kierstyn's birthday money breakdown:
cake w/ Mia $15
dinner @ Ichiban $60
cookie cake $8
ice cream $4
M&Ms $3
movie $5
--------
$95

...and the girl has $105 spending money left over!

Way to go Kierstyn!! Looks like with age she has learned a thing or two. That is my kind of girl. Love all the posts lately-- the mirrors, Kierstyn's new shoes, and I can't wait to see your whole outfit. I have to admit I had to look up what SYTYCD was. :)

Amazing ~ NOTHING this gal does should surprise me ~ NOTHING. . . she is so capable. . . just amazing, full of surprises, always learning and growing! You have taught her well. I can just imagine her wheels turning in her cute little head on how to spend her remaining $$$ and in my imagining I imagine that she is thinking of spending that $$$ on someone other than herself. That's our girl Kierstyn!! We love you!!
