So, I think I am pretty set for the party on Sunday. There are a few items I’ll buy tomorrow (mostly produce), but I think I have everything I need. The thing I’ve learned in all of my years of hosting birthdays and holidays is that no one ever eats at parties. I have way too much food, which means way too much leftover food taking up my precious refrigerator space. I tried to trim things down this time, so we’ll see how I did. I guess a lot of the time I just feel guilty since  our family members drive anywhere from 1-2 hours to get here, so I overcompensate by trying to stuff them full of pasta salad, LOL.

I still have to wrap Lulu’s gifts, though. Since we live in horse country, maybe someday she’ll ask for riding lessons, but for now I’m very glad she’s happy with things of a much simpler (and less expensive!) nature.

  1. I’ve found the opposite to be true ~ at the parties that we have, people tend to eat quite a bit! But they eat more appetizers than they do main dishes, if that makes sense. We always end up with way too much food, too, though. Hope her party today went well!
