Welp! I'm going to chalk that one up to a random fluke. Or at least, a virus with a super long incubation period. (Please, Universe, don't smite me! Let's just move on, mmmmkay?)
I woke up this morning at 5:54 a.m. when Becca got up to go to the bathroom. She went to bed at 9. Took no nap yesterday, went to DANCE CAMP and still was up before six. Oh well. It didn't bother me too much today because my mind is spinning. I figured I could get up and get a cup of coffee in silence. I was even a good wife and made John a breakfast sandwich to go as he rushed out the door. I answered a few emails and made my To-Do list.
Last night I was put on the spot. I agreed to host a Mary Kay party for a friend. I'm not a real Mary Kay person. I mean, it is fine. But I am just not that into it. I'm doing it for the friend, not for the products.
As she was asking me, my mind started saying, "I love having friends over. I enjoy hosting parties. It is a great excuse to get people together." I started running through my repetoire of heavy hors doueeerrrrrves (don't feel like googling the spelling) and desserts. Drinks and fresh flowers....
But, then the consultant told me not to serve wine until after the skin care demo.
Party with no wine?
Does not compute.
I am seriously at a loss. Who wants to be trapped at a party where there is a big demo and no wine? Why can't she just set out a ton of samples and give a two minute spiel? Then the people can mingle and talk and play with products and get a little tipsy and then BUY STUFF! Maybe that is just how I do it.
Anyhoodle. If you have any heavy hors doooooooorrrrrves or dessert recipes you think are a must, let me know. Especially if they contain WINE.
