It's A Bloggiesta Weekend!!!

Bloggiesta started on Friday, but I am just now joining in. In fact, I meant to have this intro post up earlier this week, but life has once again disrupted my plans for writing on this blog. I have been in the midst of planning and executing a Superhero Birthday Party for my now 5-year-old!! All in all, it was a complete success . . . even the Superman birthday cake that I didn't have the appropriate colors for or the necessary talent!! Thank heavens that preschoolers are easy to please!!

With the party complete and the majority of clean-up done, I now have the time to devote to a little blog housekeeping and catching up on my many planned posts! I will be spending the majority of tomorrow (Sunday) in working on a few things, including my formatting project that I started earlier this week in preparation for this little fiesta.

Without further ado, here is a long list of goals for the next 24+ hours (in no particular order). I do not know how much I will realistically be able to finish, but I hope to get a good chunk done and at least, have a good list made for myself where I can work on little things here and there after the Bloggiesta weekend!
