Zeenah (officially 7 now) is beyond obsessed with Unicorns…..I think she counts unicorns in her sleep!!
Before we move to Canada (December 2016 ) she was so distraught about not being able to celebrate her birthday with her closest friends…I could totally relate to her as its such a big change mixed with so many emotions. I couldn’t bare the thought of her never forgiving me of depriving her with one last big bash. I tried to ignore it as much as I can but as the departure date was getting closer I decided to do something…..
So what did I come up with…..A “fake” birthday off course!!! As my house was chaos of boxes half unpacked and couldn’t bare the thought of planning a full fledged birthday I decided to actually give in and have it somewhere….. it was a mix of Unicorn and Spa.
I booked a full Spa birthday at Sparkle Nail Spa in Discovery Mall. It was a full day of pampering Zeenah’s closest friends followed by lunch at Chillis and obviously her Cake.
The girls were all pampered from head to toe! Nailpolish, hair, makeup and fancy tattoo art. I found the cutest thing when they all were attempting to carry Zeenah…..and she loved every moment of attention.
No birthday is ever complete without a family group picture….this in particular I love because you can see my mommy in the background!!!
She made sure I made a Unicorn topper and decorated with Rainbow Meringues……
I think I did good in Making Life Memorable twice over for that matter when it comes to her 7th Birthday!!!! Stay tuned for a post about her “Real” birthday with her New friends.
One of the nicest things since I’ve moved to Canada is that I don’t have to work so hard on recreating a celebratory atmosphere for the girls. Everyone celebrates too!!
With Easter around the corner everywhere I look are bunnies, eggs and chicks….So much to choose from that I end up feeling extremely overwhelmed and the fact that I still don’t have my usual plan. I’m going to miss my usual Easter egg hunt in my garden with my playgroup peeps!
Yet there’s so much to do around here I hope that I venture out to at least one event!
We did get to go to West Edmonton Mall and were surprised to see the bunny photo Op….I really felt like i was in one of those movies….My version would definitely be a “National Lampoons” one!
You can get yours done at West Edmonton Mall until April 17 at the Centre Stage, Level One, in front of Hudson’s Bay
Mon-Thu Noon to 7pm
Good Friday & Sunday Noon to 5pm
The girls loved all the fancy decorations on the stage and getting some cotton candy must have been another highlight too!!!
So If you haven’t already and you’re in Edmonton I suggest you get hopping and start Making Life Memorable!
