I am not a party planner.

Grayson's birthday party is on Saturday. If there is one thing I have learned about the process of planning a birthday party, it's that I am NOT cut out to be a party planner. Nope. Not at all. Here are some other things I have learned along the way:

  • I am a huge scatterbrain. I have about 10 projects started and only 2 things complete. 
  • Modge Podge is a pretty fun invention. I'd never used it before until a couple weeks ago. It's great!
  • DIY-ing can still be expensive. Michael's & Hob Lob will steal your money right out of your wallet!
  • Speaking of Hobby Lobby, am I the only one that almost always has to buy a random treat (ie: circus peanuts or poppycock) when I am in the check out line? 
  • Hot glue is a dangerous, dangerous thing. I should know this since I used it all.the.time in the classroom...but, alas, I forgot. I have burned myself approximately 14 times this week. 
  • Monogrammed sugar cookies are SO cute! However, I will have to use G's future college tuition to buy them. Note to self: become a baker.
  • Apparently I like to add more stress to situations. For example, I thought this week would be the perfect time to finally make drop-cloth curtains for our big kitchen window. Um, those took 3 hours on Sunday. That also meant getting Ben to hang a curtain rod and hooks on each side of the window. As if we have nothing else to do!
  • lastly, I need to win the lottery so I can hire a party planner. the end.

I can't wait to see pictures of all of your projects. And I can totally sympathize with having one million projects...right now I have fall/house/nursery projects ALL going on at once. And when I don't feel like doing one I'll start another!!! I did completly finish my front door wreath and fall kitchen menu though! :-)

Are we the same person? :) I HAVE to buy something at the register- always! And as for the Michaels/Hobby Lobby "low prices"... it only makes me buy more!!! Agh! Can't wait to see pictures of the party- I am sure it will be adorable!
