Last Friday, Scott & I had a bunch of friends over (about 50 total - including kids) for a dessert night before taking off for school.
I was planning on making a sheet cake & chocolate chip cookies for the night, but was too tired to even think about doing this without taking a nap first. Of course, I didn't set my alarm (thinking Scott would wake me up), & in typical Liz fashion, my nap lasted 2 to 3-ish hours instead of the 30 minutes I had hoped for. I woke up with only 30 minutes left until everyone was supposed to arrive. I panicked, but when I went downstairs, Scott already had things ready for me, so I didn't have to stress over getting anything done. (He's always so thoughtful.)
Enjoying the beautiful weather: it was so fun having people finally use our backyard.
