How to Host a Stress Free Party (From the Archives)

Hi friends!

Holy moly Thanksgiving is next week!!!!  How did this happen.  The past few years we’ve hosted at least one Thanksgiving at our house but this year we’re taking a break.  Which is nice in some ways but I do enjoy hosting.  I’ve got it down too so that I’m not a crazy stressful mess before (or when) the guests arrive.  I shared a few of my top tips to hosting a stress-free party last year and am re-sharing again today in case you’re hosting Thanksgiving or a party soon!

Celebrating My Mama with a Surprise Party!

Celebrating My Mama with a Surprise Party!

Good morning!

How is your week going?  We’re having a good one.  Busy but really good!  The Love Nugget has really been enjoying the summer camp he’s going to this week and I’ve been enjoying a few hours to myself 🙂  Win, win for everyone!  Yesterday we ended up taking the morning off from camp though because we had plans with friends to go to Michael David in Lodi for a picnic/play date.

Third Annual Favorite Thing Party!

Third Annual Favorite Thing Party!

Less than one week until Christmas!  I know, I know, everyone is posting about it and repeating it over and over again but I just can’t believe how fast this month has gone by.  I swear December was the longest month ever when I was a kid!  What happened?

I was feeling a bit overwhelmed last week when we were planning to have half my family at our house tomorrow to celebrate, then some of The Hubby’s on Tuesday then the rest of my family on Friday.  Since today is jam packed and I’m teaching two classes tomorrow morning I was freaking out a little.  However, I took some of the stress off my plate by saying no to Saturday.  Learning to say no has been a big part of my de-stressing and when I woke up at 2:00am with anxiety over getting everything done by Saturday, I knew I had to say no somewhere.  Now that I have I’m feeling much better and ready for all the festivities next week!

Summer Entertaining with Blue Diamond!

Summer Entertaining with Blue Diamond!

Fun.

Barbecues.

Friends.

Entertaining.

Excursions.

Four words that pop into my head when I think of Summer and that we pleasantly enjoyed this past weekend.  We invited a few friends over for dinner Friday night and surprisingly pretty much everyone made it!  Summer is always so hard to find dates where people are free as it tends to be everyone’s busy time of year.  So we were pretty happy when we had a house full of friends over for a yummy abalone dinner cooked by my amazing hubby 🙂

Ka-Chow! The Love Nugget Turned Three!

If you have a little boy around the age of my son you probably know what Ka-Chow means.  If you don’t it’s Lightning McQueen’s favorite saying as he races across the finish line.  My son is obsessed with Disney Cars so it seemed only fitting to have a Cars birthday party!

Good morning!

Ummm can you believe Christmas is in ten days!?!  Crazy how fast it snuck up this year.  We just decorated our tree last night but haven’t finished the house quite yet.  Moving had definitely set us back but it’s just one year…

Speaking of the house, we are beginning to get a little more settled in.  Not yet finished unpacking but close. Our goal is to have it done by next weekend since we are hosting Xmas this year.
