Entertaining This Week :)

We are trying desperately to fit everything in before we get "the call."

Last night, we hosted our youth Bible Study group for a cookout (turned to pizza party due to the a.m. weather). We said goodbye to a couple of them that will be moving away this fall. But it was a great evening - so relaxing! We even enjoyed a new game - Flapdoodle. It's a hilarious game that gets you to do some pretty embarrassing things. :) It was so much fun! These kids have blessed our lives tremendously and we love them!

This weekend, my sisters and I will be hosting a family shower on Saturday morning for Ashley (Elliot's fiancee). It's a brunch at my house but each of my sisters is pitching in something. I can't wait to have everyone! Saturday night, we will have Stephanie's personal/bachelorette party - also at my house. We came up with what I hope will be a fun theme - wine, cheese, and chocolate. We invited her closest friends and we will shower her with those fun little items. :) I hope it will be a great evening that she always remembers!

In preparation for all the festivities, we will be:
-steam cleaning the carpets - they are horrible!
-putting together favors
-planning games/activities
-making food
-cleaning bathrooms
-shopping for last minute things

I really do love entertaining and planning events! I can't wait for it all to be here even though I still have much to do! I'm off to get busy... :)

The parties sound like fun, but the prep less so! (from one helping with it :)

Hope you don't mind my following as you wait for #3. I'd like to read more later about how it happened unexpectedly!

I know, I'm starting to get that frantic feeling of the calm before the storm :)
