We hit Party City on Saturday with my mom. We needed birthday party supplies for Molly's 2nd birthday - I don't consider this a break in the 40 day plan as it is for a 2 year old's birthday party - well actually supplies for 2 parties. One at home and one in Maine.
While we were there, my mother saw a clearance rack for mylar balloons. The rest is history... BIG history.
Yes, these balloons could be in a Thanksgiving Parade.
