Hostess

in Deep Thoughts

You know what? Sometimes, a girl just needs a little hiatus. Life has been crazy, but I’ve still been loving every minute of it.

I sit here at 5:30 on Tuesday night waiting for my Stella and Dot party to begin. I don’t host {anything} often, so I am a little nerve racked. Naturally, I am not a good hostess because I have so much anxiety around the situation. I freak out that no one is having fun and that I need to put on a clown outfit and entertain everyone. No matter what I do, this happens all the time.

I cleaned my apartment. In  my eyes, it’s spick and span, but I just know that my sister, Melanie, and my mother will find something that is not clean. Where is my younger sister Valerie when I need her? I’m sure she would back me up. {I did not inherit the “clean” gene.}

In order to relieve some of my anxiety, I will consider other parties I’ve been to and compare. I realize that my party won’t be much different so I really need to chill out. Don’t you agree?

I much rather attend parties rather than host them. Unless it’s a pajama party with tons of wine and no expectations. {Is it too late to change this party into a wine and pj party?}.

Anywho, I will let you know how this goes. I’m excited to see friends!

Cue the clown! Just kidding, it will be great, cause you are great and we will be swooning and squealing over the jewels and no one will notice the cherrios you swept behind the door.

Wish I could be there! I stress out too when hostessing, but I’ve learned that your guests have a much better time if they see you relaxed and having fun too. So pour a glass of wine and take a deep breath…everything will be great!

Sorry I missed what I’m sure was a fabulous party! Good news from the doctor though :o)
