I guess some might say I have some obsessive tendencies, I think I am just slightly type A. (I am not worrying about my birthday; 29 is not worth noting. And for my 30th, I dont want a party, I want Lasik!)
I am of course in the early stages of party planning, and this will probably be my obsession for 5 or 6 months. All of my plans require a patio in the backyard....so I am going to be giving up my spring break to put in a paver patio. The leading idea for A's party is a painting party. The leading idea for J's is a beer tasting.
Again, these may change, or I will obsess over making those two ideas into the best I can. I have not ever really thrown a big birthday party. A's 1st was just family and close friends. Her 2nd was at My Gym (I did nothing). I have never had a party for J. So, this will be a new experience for me. All this planning and looking has sparked major house envy and yard envy.
My game plan (so far)
Step 1: Major cleaning of entire house over the course of 5 months. (No, my house is not filthy, but if you are having a party, it has to be perfect!)
Step 2: Put in a paver patio.
Step 3: Clean up backyard.
Step 4: Pick perfect party idea.
Step 5: Execute party plan.
Sounds simple, right?
