Planning a Party – by guest blogger Epic Dad

Planning a Party – by guest blogger Epic Dad

Hello, All! While I take a brief hiatus from the blogosphere (I miss you! Call me!), please enjoy this post from my fellow blogger, Epic Dad. Maybe it will inspire you to throw a bash. If you do, be sure to let me know if you use any of these tips! Also, check out Epic Dad if you get a moment. His tag line is “Be a legend. Have an adventure. Be a dad.” Love that. Enjoy! Michelle photo credit: Sam Ilić via photopin cc Hosting a party always scares me.  I remember the first time we had people over to our house in graduate school.  We were serving burgers and potato salad to 15 guests and I burned the burgers so they came off the grill resembling the chunks of charcoal they were cooked over rather than the delicious patties I had hoped for.  That was five years ago and we’ve hosted a lot more parties for a lot more people and here are nine things I’ve learned.

Guest Blogger: Cute Banker Speaks! He Grills! He Makes Suggestive Comments about Giada De La La!

We’ll get to that.   I had a pretty fun day today and I just finished barbecuing and having a couple of drinks… do friends let friends blog drunk? Well, I’m not drunk but after four years with two kids, a couple of beers is a party.   I had a weekday off today and, after the kids miraculously went down for a nap, I decided, rather late in the day, that I would barbecue. My latest barbecuing venture,...

This morning, my son announced he was writing a book.  He hired me to transcribe it. Fortunately, I can also publish it, sort of (although, I imagine actual book publishers will be knocking on our door momentarily). He chose “Tree Laughy” to be his nom de plume and set to work. I left the background decorating choices in this shot so you know you are not alone.  Or, maybe so I can feel I’m not alone.  Does anyone else have the Small Child Chaos motif? What with a couple pairs of new shoes, and the jury on the malevolence of socks still out, Blisters have been a big topic around here lately.  Art imitates life even in the preschooler set because his book is called Lulu Got a Blister. This is an actual, word-for-word transcription of my guest blogger’s story. (I believe it may be a sequel to an actual, printed book.  Please let me know if we are in violation of any trademark laws. Clearly, Lulu gets around –...
