Wiping the sleep out of my eyes
Guess who's been busy? Yep, this girl.
I have been so busy that sleeping has fallen to the bottom of my list.
My mom told me yesterday, that I "didn't look as tired" and that "I must have gotten some sleep." Apparently that is the nice equivalent of saying that the last time she saw me I looked like total crap.
I can always count on mom for telling it like it is. Thanks Mom.
What can I say, I was tired. So tired, I wore glasses most of the week to hide the bags under my eyes. That's a little pro tip I learned while working 14 hour days at the Nordstrom Anniversary sale in college. Throw on a pair of glasses and not only look smart, but WAY less tired.
This week, I'm refreshed. Kind of. It's only Monday. Lets not get ahead of ourselves.
Really what I meant to say was- sorry I haven't posted since LAST Monday. I know I kind of made a 4-post-a-week-minimum-rule for myself. Sorry I broke my own rule. I think I'm apologizing to myself at this point.
Lets get down to the root of the problem.
Why was I so tired?
Well. Party planning is tough business.
Yep. Now, is the time you can feel sorry for me.
Mini violins and all that right? Yeah, I figured. Even Chris has given up on feeling sorry for me. Not that he ever did.
You see. I plan events for work. Then I plan events for life. I only get paid to do the former. Sometimes life and work intersect in the most awful fashion, and I end up double...triple...quadruple booking events for myself. Woops.
The last 3 weeks have been event-tastic. 3 charity events (1 planned and 2 attended), 1 baby shower planned, 1 HUGE work contest launch, 3 contest events planned (which I couldn't even attend).
NOW do you feel sorry for me?
Yeah, me neither. I bring this on myself.
I love me a party.
I really do. I love all the small details and I love the when people enjoy themselves. Then I love to look at the pictures!
To prove to you how busy I was, here are a few pics from the various events.
You can't have a Cupcakes & Clothes baby shower without glittery cupcake name tags. Right?
|Do these remind anyone else of sorority recruitment????|
|I'm pretending that I meant to do dots-stripe-strip-dots. Woops.|
|Who can pass up a brownie pop in a bud vase?|
|Gotta have cupcakes.|
|Adorable. I didn't make them. I wish I had.|
|Glasses at an event when working. Bunnie, not working & looking well rested.|
|I didn't win this. But I LOVE putting baskets together.|
|Dessert dash. Delicious.|
I'm certain I'm not the only one running around crazy busy this time of year. Commiserate with me. I'll feel sorry for you if you feel sorry for me.
