Hi. My name is Meg. I’m mom to my curious little girl, Holden, and my handsome little man, Gatsby (I was an English major).

oh, bother. was created out of my struggle as a working mom in a Pinterest world. I’m a DIYer wannabe and creative design appreciator, but I usually find myself falling a bit short in the execution. You’ll see.

You can also find me on TwitterFacebookPinterest, and Instagram, or hit me up at ohbotherblog{at}gmail.com

the most magical freaking birthday party that ever freaking was

the most magical freaking birthday party that ever freaking was

You guys, Holden just had the most amazing, Pinterest-worthy birthday party ever… and I barely had to do a damn thing! We have this adorable new play space in Downtown York called The Curious Little Playhouse. We joined as monthly members when they opened in April because I love having a place to take the kids to get out of my hair, I mean the house.

I told them Holdy wanted to have a *small* unicorn birthday party. Well, holy crap, did they deliver… on everything but the small!

They took care of EVERYTHING, including the beautiful decorations. All I did was bring McDonald’s, because that’s the kind of classy gal I am (and actually I didn’t even do that; Flippy did!)

Oh and, hello, they brought REAL FREAKING UNICORNS for the kids to ride!

I mean, seriously - could I look like a more legit mom?

Everyone had so much fun… including me because it was super stress-free.

And then, because clearly this girl is spoiled enough, we asked partygoers to forego presents and instead bring art supplies for Holden to donate to Creative York, a local art education nonprofit.

Seven’s looking pretty good so far, kid!

Happy Birthday, Holdy!
