Gettin' It Done

Don't you just love when stuff starts to come together.IMG_1770 Today I came home to huge progress on our second bathroom. So huge that I'm feeling really confident about it being mostly done by this weekend. This is a really good thing because I took a leap of faith and invited a whole lotta people to come over and break the fast on Saturday.
I am thrilled with the way the first bathroom came out but this one is even more personal because there were more elements to choose and I flexed my creative chops just a bit more. Watching everything come together has me so excited that I just had to share a tiny sneak peek.
Anyway, back to the company. Last week I was concerned with having enough guests to justify cooking a turkey and this week I'm looking forward to a house full of friends. How many? Ummm... I think we're gonna order 4 dozen bagels to feed all of us. As long as it's sunny it will be a fabulous day.
IMG_1776All my friends know that I love to entertain so not being able to throw BBQ's and other gatherings for the duration of the construction has been so hard. I am barely contained with excitement about this weekend. Of course getting there is half the fun. I can't cook Friday night because we'll be observing the start of Yom Kippur. Thursday night I MUST go see the Harlot so there'll be no cooking till I get home - maybe. Wednesday we're going to a Nationals game. Friends of ours have season tickets and they gave them to my DH as a birthday gift. Doesn't that mean we have to go? Tuesday night is meet the teacher night for Stinkerbelles class. This means that the trick will be to clean the house and do all the cooking between now and Saturday afternoon without blowing off any of the other stuff. Hmmm... what are the odds that something gets forgotten.

Yeah, forward progress and entertaining friends, it doesn't get much better, does it? Well, except for perhaps that cheesecake in the previous post ;-)

Alas, cleaning and cooking cannot be done off-site, since I'll be at both the Nats game and the Harlot event with you this week and would be happy to pitch in were it possible.
