Let Summer Begin Party

I haven’t gotten out much this year. Being sick all the time hasn’t been great; it’s been kind of depressing. So a few weeks ago Chris and I decided to plan a get-together with a small group of friends that we’ve seen too infrequently since I got pregnant.

One of the best parts about small parties is you can go a little bit crazy with the invitations. I loved the look of this invitation, but if I had to make even a dozen of these beauties, I would have probably died. Fortunately I only had to make a few, and in the end I was happy with the final look instead of resenting the very sight of those super intricate, darling, pom poms.






In his single days, Chris loved to throw a Let Summer Begin party. He bought a bunch of burgers and a bunch of soda and invited his friends over. Easy peasy. This time we picked out some pre-marinated tri-tip and kabobs, some sirloin, some rib eye, and we bought a case of Juice Squeeze. It was the perfect party for a 22-year-old bachelor (who also happens to be a master griller) because it’s a simple party: just excellent food and dear friends. It was also the perfect party for our weekend since I am of no help whatsoever.

  4. I am seriously impressed by all of the things you have managed to do while being sick. I kind of just became a hermit...part of that was probably because we moved mid-pregnancy and I knew no one, but still. You are doing awesome :) and you're almost done! Hooray!

    1. I defintiely FEEL like a hermit, that's for sure. And I seriously cannot believe that you moved mid-pregnancy. That is my nightmare.
