Didn’t know I was going to make a pettiskirt for the birthday girl, but one minute I was browsing Pinterest (you know how that goes) and next thing I knew, it became an absolute necessity for Addie’s birthday party.
Okay! Back to the list of to-dos. Why do I get so sidetracked? It’s because I plan too far in advance. Every day, I just keep adding to the “it would be really cool to do such-and-such” list. Seriously! I have a problem. I get an idea stuck in my head and think I just can’t possibly NOT do it. Then, come the couple days before the party, I absolutely, totally, 100% FREAK OUT that I won’t be able to pull it together. But, somehow, it works out. And please note that the “somehow” always involves my husband, my mom, and my sister doing WAY more than they signed up for. I’m so lucky to have them support me in my episodes of full-blown insanity!
So tell me, How do YOU plan parties? Are you calm and organized? Do you wait until the day before? Do you let someone else do the planning? Do you plan out every detail and execute it exactly as planned? Who helps you? Do you get a little crazed like me??
