Party Planning is So Hard

I have been thinking a lot about our End-of-Year party, the most important party of the year for the school.  It just happens that Ty is the faculty adviser for this committee so I sent out an email to all of the committee members for a kick-off meeting after school today.  I am such a ditz sometimes, though. I managed to get all of the emails wrong except Ty’s, so it ended up being just him and me there.  LOL!  I thought pretty much everyone had Yahoo.com for their email, but it turns out almost no one does.  Lesson learned.

We had a very productive meeting, except that Ty was not as supportive as I had hoped about my ideas for a VIP area for the popular children and he thought that the step and repeat might not be quite what the school is looking for.  We decided that we should both think hard about good themes for the event, and get together with the whole committee to discuss it next week.  Phew, this is hard work!

 

At least we both had a cocktail and a few laughs, but meetings are mentally taxing.

Cari stopped by later to discuss the meeting and themes over a glass (or three!) of wine, and to let Starling and Amber play for a bit.  Those two girls are just so precious together.  They never stop laughing.

These two and their dance routines!  I think Starling might actually be a gifted choreographer.

Cari brought Starling home to spend the night, so I put the boys to bed early.  They had a busy week, and were pretty worn out by 6 PM.  I’ve invited a few of Röbert’s college pals and their wives over for a little impromptu barbecue out back tonight.  It’s a tiny bit chilly, but I think with a bonfire and a few blankets out there we can probably cuddle up and keep warm.  I hope the music and laughter doesn’t bother our neighbors too much.  After all, the Sullivan’s bedroom window looks right over our yard and the Wozinski’s can be pretty prickly.  But who could wish ill on a few happy couples just enjoying dancing under the stars on a beautiful spring evening?

    It’s so demeaning when the popular kids aren’t allowed to let their beautiful-people superiority be treated with respect and a tiny bit of recognition. It’s not easy for them to mingle with the general population without a place to relax for a few minutes.
    Your cookout sounds fun but I do feel really bad for Karen. I know Karen is a snake, but you have such a kind heart and forgiving nature, maybe you could allow her to come over with all the other couples too. You know, so she doesn’t feel alone.

      I have some other ideas I am working on for the popular kids, even if they don’t get a VIP lounge.

      That is a nice idea about Karen. You know the old, keep your friends close thingy might pertain here. Maybe Röbert and I can stop by before everyone gets here to invite her to join us, but I am afraid she might feel really out of place being so much older than everyone else there.

    I can’t imagine why the school would object to a step and repeat. It’s such good training for later in life! I hope Starling and Amber will have suitably fancy dresses, makeup, and shoes. I can’t wait to see the pictures! Will they be arriving by limo? Maybe they could have a VIP pre- or post-party.

    I jus t hope Cari can find a better brow specialist for Ambur before the party because her right eyebrow looks a lil off in that photo. Some beuticians have out dated attitudes to hot wax and children but I say you have to be cruel to be kind and the sooner our lil gals learn that there are some small sacrifices 2 be made 4 beauty the better i say

    WTHeck? Your party ideas are amazeballs. Ty is just being a man, right? I mean, your ideas are on fleek. Men are just so clueless about what is in and what is not in, and it’s our job as women to “school” them, amirite? (LOL on my play on words – SCHOOL them, since he is a teacher. A HOT teacher but hello! who is looking?) Anyway, you have some great ideas that I am SURE the committee will back up once you get them together. Speaking of, I thought everyone used yahoo too! GUESS NOT!! I mean, come on in to the 21st century ladies – right?!!

    And *swoon* your cozy night under the stars sounds so cozy. I so wish I was nearby so I could have scored an invitation! I am single but I am sure I could have rounded up some poor soul to accompany little ol’ me to my new friend’s party! But I digress. I am sure it was a heavenly night under the stars. You are such a good hostess.

      I have been pinning away on Pinterest so I will be well prepared for the next meeting. I think that The Great Gatsby or maybe Diamonds are a Girl’s Best Friend would be terrific themes. With Cari as my co-chair it is truly going to be an afternoon to remember for the children.

    Aw, Starling is thinner than her new friend. You must be so proud on the inside, but are, too classy to even point it out here, of course. Feels good to know your girl is superior, even if you would never directly say it to the other girl’s mother’s face, doesn’t it? Amber is very pretty too; she will be an excellent minion for Starling, who clearly is a leader. So much charisma, she really takes after you.

      Amber is a lovely little girl and I never even noticed her weight. Honestly, I am just so happy that Starling has another girl who shares so many of her interests.
