Well, a Gleek-tastic time was had by all. I think I am fully recovered.. my livingroom has not. I’ll get it all cleaned up eventually.
So, Friday night, we hosted 4 of my Teen’s friends from school. They seemed to have a fantastic time! She was sooooooooooo excited! We got the hopped up on sugar and fed them pizza! The Slushie cupcakes were a big hit!
Cupcakes, cookies, doritos, and candy!
Then they spent a couple of hours playing on the Wii. One of the girls brought the “Michael Jackson experience ” game. They danced around to MJ songs for a while then played “Just Dance 2” and danced some more! The best part was the Toddler just dancing right along with them! It was hilarious!
By the time they left, I was exhausted! And there was more to do in the morning!
Saturday was party #2 with my family and it was the “Gleek-tastic” extravaganza!
I pretty much went all out. Take a look:
The “Gleek-tastic” banner
Top view of the Glee cake
- The Glee Cake!
- Cafeteria style lunch- Chicken nuggets, mini hamburgers, grilled Cheesus an TOTS! We even had “school lunch tray” plates.
- I even made some high school-ish posters
- The view of some decorations from the stairs
The best part of the whole day was that she had no idea about the Glee theme. I banished her to her room while I decorated. She came downstairs and was thrilled! That was what it was all about.
The surprises didn’t stop there. My BFF came from Vegas to surprise her. And if she hadn’t gotten enough from us already- (along with my BFF) got her the gift of all gifts…….
- The Cruz Tablet.
And my devious little mind decided that she needed it wrapped in a real book. A real hollowed out book! HAHAHAHA! My dad took care of that part of the project. It had to be a book that she’d have no interest in at all.
- PC’s for Dummies- Windows 95
I was hoping for something in another language.. but that will do.
Turn to page 17!
She was so thrilled! And she wants to download about a million books!
The perfect gift for my bookworm who reads about 4 books at a time.
Oh, and I think her other favorite gift was the Red Converse high tops (like they wore in the Superbowl episode of Glee) that my brother-in-law got her.
Everyone seemed to have a good time. My Toddler and my niece had a blast playing together. My dad complained about the Glee playing on the tv all day, which was just kind of funny.
So..despite the Bieber-ific bathroom, my new Teen had the best.birthday.ever.
I couldn’t have asked for more.

I know I have a million things to do right now, but I wanted to share this while it is still making me giggle! 🙂
I mentioned in an earlier post that I thought it would be funny to Bieb-ify the birthday girls bathroom as her early morning birthday surprise, since I believe she is the only
12-year-old 13-year-old girl on the planet that does not swoon over Justin Bieber. I have been teasing her a lot about taking her to see his movie “Never Say Never” since it opens today. So last night, I put Operation: Bieb-her-bathroom into action!
Her bathroom door. It reads "Happy 12th Birthday AGAIN!" And the decorations were left over from her birthday last year.
Her mirrors.. what she saw as she walked in! The mirror says "Have a Bieberific Birthday!"
moving to the right... more Justin!
The shower doors... I put a purple table-cloth behind the doors. For some reason, I associate purple with the Bieb.
The back of the door... it's really 360 degrees of Bieber-ness!
And the last little bit..
- Her early morning presents!
She had not idea what was in store for her when she went in to pee. SHe thought the stuff on the door was it! It was AWESOME! I couldn’t stop laughing! It was so hard to keep my poker face until she went inside.
The look on her face was PRICELESS. Well worth the $10 I spent on Justin Bieber magazines.
She was super excited with her “I’m a Gleek” wristband and t-shirt! Of course, she wore them to school! And she’s been dying to read “Beastly” and the Glee novel. I bought just because. I don’t know if I’ve ever mentioned that she is a total bookworm. Well, she’s a bookworm. She reads and reads and reads and then reads some more. She will read 2 or three books at a time, which I don’t understand, but whatever works for her.
She is going to be even more excited when she gets her big gift tomorrow!
We got her an eReader. Its pretty darn cool. It’s more of a “tablet”… I wanted to get something that would be more functional than just for books. Oh, and here’s he BEST PART….
We are going to wrap it in a hollowed out book. (compliments of my dad).
I’m so evil. But its going to be Legend…… wait for it…… ary!
I can’t wait!
Well.. I have to go make frosting, then put it on the cake, pick up my hubby at the airport and then do all the other million things on my list!
