I plan to send myself this email around the first of December 2012, when those pangs of decorating start to hit for Maeve's third birthday party.
Dearest Jackie 2013,
Here I am, typing on Wednesday, still in recovery from the overkill that was Maeve's Second Birthday party this past Sunday. As the streamers still hang and the cupcakes are slowly being devoured, I just wanted to offer you a friendly reminder:
You are not Martha Stewart
even though Pinterest gives you the confidence boost to make you think you are.
Maeve and Moira will not be scarred if you lessen up on the party planning crap. Your friends and family will still love you even if there is a lack of homemade *gasp* lemon squares and only limited decorations. You can actually enjoy the time before the big day, with cuddles and time playing with the girls.
Enjoy your time, don't fret over it.
Who the hell am I kidding?
Good luck in 2013, biatch!
This party rocked and you know it!
You're going to need a lot of luck to out-do yourself for 2013, so I assume you've been pinning and researching! You get an extra day this year since it's a leap year, so no excuses.
Enjoying the after glow,
Just for the record, I do not think myself Martha, Kate Landers or any of those chicks who plan the out of this world birthday parties on Lifetime or Bravo.
I'm just a stay at home mom with too much time on my hands...at least that's what Bryan tells me.
Love links is now "Yeah, Write!"
