Party Time!

Three hours until the guests will start to arrive…and I’m actually feeling like we’re ready to rock this party!

Today has been a whirlwind.

It started off with a 3-mile run, during which I ran alongside some of the Girls on the Run participants. Today was their 5K race and they were so cute—and rocking their race! Definitely something I’d like to volunteer for in the future. Bravo, girls!

After my run, ABS and I got to work. We went to the grocery store, I baked up a storm (peanut butter fudge, cookies, and more delicious treats), he cut the cheese (hehe—we’re so immature), I sliced the veggies, and eventually I felt like we were in good enough shape to run out.

I headed downtown to French Connection, hoping to find a last-minute party dress.


But I did hit up KMart for some more decorations!

So, now that we’re ready to unveil the apartment for our guests, I thought I’d take my “virtual guests” (you) on a little tour of the casa.

Bedroom is downstairs, let’s go upstairs…

Yikes! Those pictures are crooked!

Brenda Walsh wants to come to the party, too!

My bright bathroom

OK, tour’s over! Time to do a last-minute liquor run and get myself ready.

Thanks for stopping by!

Check back tomorrow for the party recap.
