Socialite Maisie

What a day yesterday for my little Maisie Miao Miao as she had one fun filled busy day.  First she spent the morning at the gym for TOPs practice then it was home for a quick shower and change before heading off to her first of two birthday parties, both at nice restaurants.  I’m telling you, Maisie gets better and fancier invites than her parents!  The first party was at The Melting Pot celebrating April’s 6th birthday.

IMG_2121eThis was one very fancy party with the children starting the celebration with fancy yin & yang drinks.

IMG_2122eOh yes, they all enjoyed their special drinks.

IMG_2124eThen before the chocolate fondue there were crafts where the children made cute foam doorknob hangers.  Maisie decided to make one for her friend “K” which I guess was appropriate as “K’s” birthday party would be Maisie’s next social engagement later that night.  The children enjoyed two different fondues, yin & yang and I think s’mores but honestly I was too busy enjoying the yin & yang in front of me to even take pictures at that point.  The party and the chocolate fondue were delicious good fun and Maisie really enjoyed her first fondue experience and loved being at the party to celebrate April’s birthday.  Happy number six April!

One long day filled with three fun activities and lots of good food made for one tired little girl.  Maisie actually fell asleep really quickly last night and had sweet dreams remembering her fun-filled day. 

New recipe coming tomorrow over on Cook Lisa Cook so be sure to check it out in the morning.  Since last night we enjoyed delicious Asian food for dinner and I’m still thinking about that salad, today I decided to feature my Oriental Chicken Salad here on the blog.  Click on the picture to be taken to the recipe.

  1. Maisie really is quite the socialite! Glad she had a fun day.

  2. Oh my gosh, Ro and Ree would LOVE those drinks!! Going to have to Google it now and see if I can find any instructions.

    Happy weekend to you!

  3. My goodness, I would have enjoyed both of those parties myself! I have to ask, what is a yin & yang drink? It looked scrumptious!

    Lots of cuties at those parties. ;)

    The yin & yang drinks are from the Melting Pot. I think it was liquid vanilla ice cream and then something chocolate. They used a mold to make it. Then topped it off with some chocolate topping. It was fun to watch them make it - it's actually very labor intensive - and they had to make over 20 of them.

    Lisa, you took great photos as usual! So glad you all came and had a great time. I know April was so happy Maisie came. I'll try not to have the stomach flu for next year's party - twice in a row was omre than enough for me :)
