Party Prep


I hope everyone had a happy thanksgiving, and got good deals on black friday! I didn’t celebrate black friday but props to those who did!

Yesterday’s lunch was very important because it was a leftover turkey sandwich. NOM STATUS

So so good..Stuffing, cranberry sauce, turkey, and a little lettuce (just to keep things healthy..HAHH)

Yesterday my mom and I headed out to do another major shopping trip for our party tonight. People at the grocery store were looking at us like we were crazy, I mean who fills up TWO shopping carts of food the day after thanksgiving?! pretty much no one

We are expecting to have roughly 50 people (parents and a lot my friends and my brothers friends) its should be fun! Here are some sneak peek party prepping pictures!

  1. WOAH, what a great looking party! That mac n cheese looks delicious! Invite me? 🙂

  2. I love parties and often THINK that I’ll love to plan them, but I get overwhelmed and stressed pretty easily. If others are helping, it’s not so bad. Looks delicious!

  3. I like menu planning, but I’m not good at all the other details. My mom is the best party planner!
