Last Minute Party

Two weeks ago as I was unsuccessfully reentering the world of parenting from my 2 week trip to Israel with no children, I realized that if I didn't have people over to keep me awake, I would fall asleep on the floor at 4pm and my children would run wild over my sleeping body.

So, I hurriedly texted a few friends for a totally last minute BBQ.

berry Lemonade, target paper plates and paper straws make an afternoon bbq into a party!

In my attempts to make it "fancy" for my daughter, we searched the pantry/party closet, and came up with pretty paper straws, nice paper goods from Target, and a pink tablecloth.

Enter this pin,

and I was all set.

Strawberry lemonade was a *huge* hit (I would have added basil or rosemary had it been for adults only), and we cooked up some hot dogs on the grill and called it a day.

Plus, I managed to stay awake until 7pm, a real accomplishment:)

I do this all the time for some extra motivation when it comes to cleaning the house! Works like a charm!

Looks like a fun party! I would do the same thing... have a party to keep me moving and awake!
