Having a Party!

The party season is getting into full swing around our house. My son's sweet bride-to-be graduates from the University this weekend, so we are having a little lunch at our house with her family to celebrate. Now, if I can only get party-planner extraordinaire (the Hub) to let go of the reins, I could get it organized. For some reason (maybe I haven't done very well at gatherings in the past??) he wants to do everything for the party. Anyway, it's going to be fairly casual, so am not too worried, but he suggested coleslaw and baked beans -- ugh -- not yummy, in my book! And there will be 6 little kids -- they don't want to eat coleslaw and baked beans -- heck -- I don't want to eat coleslaw and baked beans! Bring on the chips!! Bring on the cookies, bring on the cupcakes!

And then the pre-wedding festivities get into full swing with bridal showers on May 17 and on May 25, bachelor party on May 24, a bridesmaid luncheon on May 30 and the rehearsal dinner on May 30 with the wedding on May 31! Just look at these darling invitations I had made for the rehearsal dinner -- are they just too cute or what!!
Maddy says she is very nervous about being a flower girl and having people look at her. When the other little flower girl is visiting on Saturday, I'll have to remember to have the girls practice a little bit. I'm sure they will both do fine! And you can probably guess, I am still working on the beautification process. Yes, it does seem to take a while and some things, like eyelashes, spray-on tans, pedicures, etc. need to be re-done. Beauty doesn't come cheap, does it!
