So yesterday I hosted a potluck dinner party for 6 mommies and their kids. I had the whole thing planned to be held in my building's club house, which has a huge space for kids to play, a kitchen and a dinner table. I figured it would be easier to have it here instead of my apartment.
You know there's a huge twist coming, right?
But first, a look at my outfit - I bought these tights months ago and finally found where I put them! I love how the outfit is pretty basic but the tights add a touch of sass.
Ok, here comes the twist -
Yesterday MORNING - that's right, I got half a day's notice - we received a letter informing us that our building would be closing the clubhouse effective immediately for 3 months of renovations. Uh...what?! I was told "no problem" when I asked to use it!
So I had a few hours to do some extreme toddler proofing in my main room (the kids ranged from 6-18 months), dig out my huge folding table from the storage closet and get my apartment dinner party ready!! Oh, and finish cooking all the food I had to make!
Cardi - gifted, Tank - Banana Republic, Skirt - Express,
Tights - Charlotte Russe, Shoes - Calvin Klein
The kids had a blast and all the moms had a great time so everything worked out and the party ended up being a success but it was a LONG day. Not to mention an even longer night of cleaning up flung macaroni and cookie crumbs ground into the carpet! Ah, another glamorous day in mommyhood. :)
And no, I didn't wear the shoes the whole time - I switched to my slippers after everyone arrived. I'm not completely nuts! ;)
