6 + 4: Pancakes and Pajamas!
I wanted it to be short and sweet because... December. Everyone is so gosh darn booked during this month (including ourselves!), I didn't want to make anyone uncomfortable coming to our shindig. So 10:30-12:00 was slapped upon the cutest Etsy invitation known to man, and it was to be so!
Okay and really, I'm using this post as a big fat excuse for doing what I really should be doing right now: laundry folding, house cleaning and dinner prep - the usual Monday routine. I spent yesterday EXHAUSTED. We didn't get out of our jammies until 2:00 and then headed to my parents' house to drop off the 6' tables they let us borrow for the party and then just ended up chillin' there there through dinner time. I was so sleepy I ended up getting a headache! After we got home, I got really frustrated that the kids hadn't cleaned their rooms all day (something I was asking them to do since the morning time), so Chad took over while I angrily scrolled through Instagram on the couch (hahaha!) - what a Grinch I was being! Then Chad and I decided to complete Christmas shopping on Amazon, only to discover that my tiredness didn't really leave much room for Fun Nicole. "Wait, so why does Carter need to get a new hockey stick from Santa? He already has a hockey stick, he hasn't grown 3 inches in one year. Don't you think he'll be sad to get something he already has? He's on the verge of 6, not 15! He won't care if he gets a slightly larger wooden stick!" - clearly I needed sleep hahahaha! So today I'm trying to uphold maintenance. I know if I skip even one small thing from the to do list the residual tiredness from the party will create Monster Nicole tonight soooooo better get moving!
