Hey there, Happy Holidays and junk! I've been having these weird headaches, I think they have something to do with my sinuses but I'm not really sure... so been a bit tired and out of it but here I ammmm. Last weekend my fiance and I threw a housewarming party, I of course, drank too much wine in anticipation and felt a little fuzzy throughout it but I sobered up enough for us to play Apples to Apples and overall it was a good time. I've been dying to get my hands on Cards Against Humanity btw, it sounds right up my foul mouthed/dirty minded alley. It was nice seeing everyone and everyone gave the place high praises. I've never planned a party like that before, my previous experience was just having people over for drinks and pizza, this was somewhat the same but felt more "formal" I guess. My nerves were on high alert the day of the party, I always have this fear that no one will show up or that everyone will have a super shitty time. So in anticipation I cleaned the house and organized over the course of 2 days, I wanted the place to look as perfect as I could make it look and it might have been a bit of overkill. I get why so many people turn to entertaining magazines, party planning is freakin' tricky business, I felt so much pressure to make everything perfect and make sure everyone was having a good time. All that aside, I have to say how amazing it feels to be in a place that feels like home though; a place I'm comfortable in, a place I'm not ashamed of, a place I want people to see, and a place where I'm with people who don't make me feel bad about myself. I can't wait till every room is in order but 5 out of 9 rooms ain't bad progress. Only one room has been completely taken over by boxes but we need money and furniture to complete it, all in due time my starfishes, all in due time (this is what I say to myself when I feel stressed out thinking about it). I am especially excited for the future of the patio room in the warmer weather, I have sparklified wine guzzling plans for it, basically meaning I plan on throwing up a ton of Christmas lights and drinking copious amounts of wine within its walls. I might have mentioned these plans before, maybe, probably... most likely. Well, I wanted to share a few pictures of the current progress of the house, the living room/dining room area is the most put together at the moment so onward to the show...



I'm at my Moms celebrating Christmas with my family at the moment, I got a lot of cute stuff for the house that I will share pictures of soon. I hope everyone has a blissful day.

Your house is looking really good! I've never thrown a house party but I know I'd panic. It seems fun at thought, but theres so much detail and work to do and I would worry about every little thing. I want to come drink too much wine with you and play that dirty-minded game.

Thank you so much. Throwing a house party is full of panicked moments, hopefully the next party I throw I'll be able to relax a little more (and hopefully I'll also put down the bottle of wine a little earlier...). Making food for a party is really stressful too, I ended up just giving up and making simple party food, I didn't notice many people eating it though. I'd love to have you over for wine and dirty minded games!
