January is a crazy month for me this year… At the end of the month my brother is moving, as I’ve mentioned before. : (
But, before that I am throwing him a huge ass party. This is the first party I’ve ever had where everybody RSVP’d yes! HA HA. My brother and his family are loved. The party is bringing many out of town relatives, and lots of locals. We are looking at 80 or so people coming to my house!! I changed the format to an open house to spread out the people’s arriving, but I have a feeling there will still be many, many people here late into the evening.
I have asked several people to bring appetizers, and desserts. I got lunch meat trays, and I am making taco soup, buffalo chicken dip, and a few other random appetizers. I am also making break and bake cookies, because every time I make them at a party they all get eaten. My mom is making buffalo chicken sliders, meatballs in that grape jelly/chili sauce, and little weinies in the same sauce. We are also having a sheet cake.
I am excited to see everybody, and slightly nervous they won’t all fit in my house. HA HA.
I will be sure to take pictures of the event!
Tonight for dinner, we had three of my favorite things. Grilled pork tenderloin. Roasted Brussel Sprouts. Roasted potatoes/roasted sweet potatoes. It was SOOO good with my favorite addition – Mott’s cinnamon applesauce to dip the pork tenderloin in… I know, I am weird.
Starting tomorrow I have to get my butt in gear cleaning the house. That’s the not fun part about having a party. I have all the linens cleaned for my guest bedrooms, because I have people in all 3 guest bedrooms. I just have to make the beds and straighten up those rooms. I am waiting to clean the bathrooms until Saturday morning so we don’t mess them up again. Thursday, I am doing the big grocery shopping for the stuff I am making. I am trying to decide if 2 space heaters is enough for our 3 season room, or if I should look into renting a heater. Although, with this many people, guests might want a cool spot!
Well, I am off to relax. This week has already been crazy. I spent 4 hours at the hospital yesterday after school, as my gramma is in there feeling under the weather.
So far, the last few days, I have done well at not bringing work home. Now, I just have to work on not bringing guilt home that I am not bringing work home. HA HA
Peace out- Beth WA
