(Followup from last post: I forgot my digital camera - unfortunately no shots from the night out seeing the band. We had a great time though, and it was wonderful to see my old friend!)
So, my daughter's 2d birthday party is Saturday. Her actual birthday is Wednesday, but we're having a party for her this weekend. The theme is fun - it's a Garden party! She loves flowers and butterflies, so that is the decor. I'm pretty excited about it, because that's a pretty fun way to decorate. I mailed out all the invitations to the usual invitees - all 70 of them. Only 10 have RSVPd. So either I'm going to have a house full - or hardly anyone.
This for me, is a predicament. If you've ever been to a party at my house, then you know that I cook enough for an army no matter how many people are there. But I'd hate to prepare for 70 people to only have 20 show up. Yet since I don't know how many people I'm expecting, I have to assume that I'll have 80 - because you never know! And I clearly wrote on the invitation "Please RSVP and let us know if you'll be joining the celebration". I don't understand why people don't respond. Am I supposed to assume they're coming? Assume they're not coming?
My parents are actually going to be attending this party. They haven't ever been to either of my children's birthday parties, so this is a relatively big deal. Visit them on my blog roll and razz them about it, would you?
The menu for this shin dig is up in the air....clearly a bbq, we'll be sure to have the usual suspects of burgers, dogs and sausage. I've found some really delicious chicken burgers that I'll add in, some linguica, and of course marinated steak, pork and chicken. My mother's home made cole slaw recipe, potato salad, regular salad, corn on the cob- and I think - I'll make a batch of chili too! I know it's going to be 100 degrees this weekend, but hey - doesn't it just sound like I need to have some chili too?
In the area? Come on by on Sunday for leftovers!
