Troy even came home from work early one day this week (we’ve all been passing around this stomach flu/cold) and stated in disbelief, “I don’t think I’ve ever seen the house like this!”
I’ll admit, amongst birthday celebrations and meetings for church responsibilities and work dinners and preschool group and doctors appointments, the mail, toys, dishes, and birthday remnants were strewn across the house.
And the very next day I was asked to host an elegant soup course for a progressive dinner with all of the ladies from church.
If you could have seen our house on the day of the party at 7am compared to 6pm, you would have been amazed at the transformation. Complete with all the typical “stuff” in between; groceries, flu shots, and appointment scheduling, yes, even I was amazed that it all came together. That doesn’t mean that I wasn’t was mopping like a mad woman ten minutes before the first group of ladies arrived.
In all of the rush I only remembered to capture the tablescape (look familiar to Thanksgiving?). There have been a lot of those lately. Event hosting always seems to come in spurts for me.
