ready to relax

My second day home...aah, it's heavenly to be back. My kindergartner has been home as well, as school is out because of parent/teacher conferences. So during the day it's just been the 3 of us again...hanging out, no schedule, no place to be or to run to. Love being around the little people here. They make me so very happy. I hope and believe they feel the same way about me.

How about that label on the bottle above? Don't worry, I took this picture a couple of nights ago, not 5 minutes ago. But this weekend we're going to be all about relaxing. Kicking back, hanging out, having FUN. No worries or cares. We're having our neighborhood dinner club over tomorrow night, but do you think I'm feeling concerned? No sir. We're staging it like a tailgate party - complete with the grill on the driveway, tiki torches lit, burgers and brats served out of the back of our car. I've asked everyone to dress in support of their favorite football team. Lots of die hard fans around here of all different schools, so it will be a real variety show. We also have 2 glam European couples, I think they may come dressed for their favorite European football league? There's also one guy coming who played high school football with my husband, and his wife tells me that he's wearing the high school jersey to the party. wow.

I've told all the couples to plan on extra long shifts for their babysitters tomorrow night. We're not wrapping things up until the cows come home!

First of all congrats on finishing the project and appreciating everything- so nice to be able to look at the other side and know you are happy where you are- we all wonder sometimes yes?

Second- the wine is sooo cute- I think that will be my new hostess gift.

Third- Your weekend tailgate style gathering sounds super cute and fun!

Have a great time!

Have fun!! We should try this here! But we have a hard time finding fellow Buckeyes (Go OSU) in Penn State Littony Lion country. They just don't like to party with us (especially when we WIN!!!).

I saw that brand of wine in a store & wanted to buy it, but they only had it in white ( I only drink red). That name is a hoot!!
