Party and Giveaways

What thing do kids go bat ish crazy for? Balloons. My child needs a balloon every time we go to the store like her little life depends on it. I always tell her that she gets balloons on her birthday and today isn't her birthday. Well apparently she thinks she's hit the jackpot of all birthdays. Party City sent Adrienne a... wait for it... 50 inch Giant Gliding Hello Kitty balloon.

This thing has weighted feet and "walks" with her. The enormous Hello Kitty is pretty amazing for even an adult like myself. Where to put it? I have no idea. The good thing about this helium balloon is that it can be deflated and refilled when needing another 50 inch balloon. Cause, one just never knows these things. The website says it's pretty durable, which is another plus for when Adrienne wants to give Hello Kitty massive hugs. Or dressing it up, or trying to fit one of it's feet in her stroller, etc.

These pictures came out so dark. It looks like we live in a cave. It's because it has been storming practically every day. No Seattle, I don't want your weather. Anyhoo, I wish we had this balloon for her birthday last December. The theme was Hello Kitty and you can see pics of it here and here. I'm sure this Hello Kitty balloon will make an appearance at many birthdays to come. Also, if you are drinking this early in the day, why not make a drinking game out of this post. Go back and re-read this. Every time you see the word "balloon" take a sip. Cheers!!

Now, giveaway time!! Party City has also provided me with a $50 gift-card to their store.

  4. As a Muppet fan I would have to go with Big Bird...Those pictures are adorable. I remember the mylar ballon era. We used to deflate them and tape them to the wall of their room like wallpaper. (never had one anywhere that big though) I remeber a Kermit the Frog balloon (See Muppets again) that was on the wall for several years.

  5. Being a lifelong fan, I'd have to say Hello Kitty, too :D such a cute idea!!

  9. I almost bought the Dora one for my Cinco de Mayo party... couldn't force myself to spend $20 on a balloon though, as legit as it was. Maybe one day, when I'm not a broke college kid.

    My favorite is DEFINITELY the Pooh Bear :) it's nice to know they are durable because how can you NOT just squeeze Pooh with hugs all day??
