I'm a very inexperienced hostess, my parents didn't really have parties or stuff like that, and I don't guess I've really paid much attention when I go over to other's houses.
I had a small breakdown wednesday night, after I realized that I had volunteered my house for this.
However, the house is cleaner than it has been in ages, there is good food in my kitchen, and one of my friends is coming over a little early to help me with last minute preparations.
I even had time this afternoon to go buy a quick Christmas tree and hang some lights on my front porch. The christmas tree is silver garland with blue lights, and the lights are the old-fashioned ones that get reeallllyyy hot over time.
I think I'm ready.
