Are you finding yourself in your jogger pants a lot more in this season? Are you about to lose it with the kids? I know you love them but 24/7 with just the four walls of your home weeks on end can start to feel closed in. A panic starts to set in…What can you do to help shift the energy?
Have a Party!!!
I know it might sound silly to have a party just for yourself but trust me when I say it creates so much fun and energy! You get to dressed up and cook fantastic food creates spice and a change. None of us can go on summer vacations or out to eat or hug our friends so in order to keep things from being very much like the movie Groundhog Day we do a themed party every week! So are more elaborate than others. Some we celebrate Walt Disney life and watch movies while eating pizza! The kids go all in on it.
Having a reason to dress up also helps you feel better! For us we have done a party almost every week-end! We dress up, put on some cologne and we do our hair. We take pictures like it is a party and we show up for us! just getting dressed up shifts the atmosphere! My daughter loves fashion and she is so going to be Next in Fashion, just wait and see. But for her the wardrobe is the party! It always involves pink lipstick and jewelry.
What do you celebrate in a time like this? How do you create theme’s? Our list is pretty simple. I am sure you could go bigger and brighter but sometimes celebrating can be hard in seasons of world turmoil so we are learning to celebrate and party over the little things.
Here is our list:
- Derby Day (The original one and all it’s history)
- B-day’s during this time (We will have two)
- Movie Marathon Pizza Night
- Seniors (college kids, high school, and our kindergartener!)
- Earth Day
- Flag Day
- Mother’s Day
- Cinco de Mayo,
- Friday’s! Just because!
Incase you want to do you own Derby Day Party here is my Cucumber Dip Recipe!
- 1 very large English cucumber
- 1 (8-ounce) package cream cheese (softened)
- 2 tablespoons grated onion (sweet)
- dash of salt (or to taste)
- 1/8 teaspoon black pepper (freshly ground)
- 1 tablespoon Chosen Food Mayo (traditional)
Grate/Shred the cucumber and put all ingredients in a bowl. Mix well and then put in fridge for 20 minutes. Serve with carrots and crackers.
Happy Celebrating Everyone! I look forward to being invited to your parties soon. When we all get out of this it is gonna be one epic event! In the Meantime, Cheers! You look Fabulous!
