house party

Friday was busy and productive... it makes me look back at pre-kid days and wonder why I didn't get a ton more done!! Lol. Now any day without a toddler attached to me is taken advantage of! Friday was no exception: the kitchen floor was washed, the counters cleaned, the bathroom cleaned from top to bottom, the laundry put away, the office cleaned and decluttered, and my bedroom straightened. Plus I put together beef stew, cut the veggies into matchsticks for my root veggie slaw, roasted pumpkin seeds, and baked pumpkin muffins from scratch. Oh, and I made us chicken salad for dinner. This was with taking the time to shower, and eat both breakfast and lunch.

It was worth it too. Our "open house" party was a success... and a ton of fun.
