What it takes to plan a Party

Today I have been overly planning Andrew’s First Communion party that is THIS SUNDAY!

First, I started with the guest list, which includes family and so far is up to 31 people! Next, I started my weekly planning. Each day either cleaning, ordering, or buying something. I have a lot to do before Sunday, and if I spread it out between the days, hopefully I won’t be AS overwhelmed at the end of the week…..

Planning for the party:

  • Monday: work, clean off Andrew’s desk
  • Tuesday: Work, pick up basement (dad mowing grass!)
  • Wednesday: 8-12 work. Target run. Order sandwiches. Order pictures for bathroom frames. Bank.
  • Thursday: Sams, party city, chairs and tables from mom and dad’s, pick up around the house (deep clean Fri)
  • Friday: Clean bedroom, basement, living room and green room. Spray tan
  • Saturday: Pick up cake, sandwiches, trader joe’s flowers. Clean Bathroom and Kitchen. Make chocolate covered strawberries.
  • Sunday: FIRST COMMUNION! (mom picking up balloons) Pictures at 12:30 🙂

You might be asking why my dad is mowing the grass, well besides he is awesome! The weather is looking like rain for the rest of the week! And since I work, he is going to cut it for me. I’m one lucky lady 🙂

Hopefully the meterologist are wrong this time 😉

When I got home from work, I attacked my first task: Cleaning off Andrew’s desk

I’m surprised I didn’t find anything alive under everything haha. Looks much better now!

Question for you:

TO DO LIST: love them or hate them?

Naps are a life saver

I hope everyone is having a great start to their week. My tuesday started by walking Andrew to school, and then I headed back to bed. The past week of workouts, and late night talks with Mr Flowers, I haven’t been sleeping at all how I should. I know that when I don’t get sleep, I started eating junk, and then I don’t have the energy to workout.

Luckily, after my short nap, I hit the road for a 12 mile bike ride.

It is still incridibly hot and humid, but I got the job done.

   

I am also addicted to this book. I can’t put it down! I highly recommend it!

Andrew also has been obssessed with his new spinjitzu toys. (thanks ya ya! haha)

I also made stew for dinner, it was amazing! Recipe soon!

Question for you:

What did you have for dinner?

Do you like to take naps?
