I am hosting thanksgiving this year at my house... which means 20 people at my place for dinner. I have SOOOOOOOO much to do and NO time to do it! I'm at work today and have a meeting after work, UGH...But oh well, I don't have to work tomorrow or Friday so I can bust my tail tonight and tomorrow morning and sleep in friday!

Garlic Mashed Potatoes
4 cheese Macaroni
Sweet Potato Casserole
Green Bean Casserole

-Sweep and Mop hardwoods downstairs
-Vaccum upstairs rec room and bedrooms

-Do the MOMMY cleaning on each of the kids rooms
-Attempt to organize pantries so I can FIND what I need for cooking
-Organize tupperware cabinets and Bans and baking dishes so I can find what I need easily tomorrow.
I am now exausted and retire!! I love hosting and having people over, we have a big family that all live close and unfortunatly we have the most space so 90% of the time we end up having to host. Dh's family and my family are awesome and they are bringing a lot of the food for tomorrow and MIL is coming over about 3 hours early to help me set up and get food together.
Oh and tomorrow night we are revealing our christmas lights (We have A LOT of them! LOL)
Wow it sounds like a tun of work! But just remember, it's not the perfection of everything it is the being together with those that you love. Don't stress to much, and I would get DH on the job! Also see who else would be willing to come over and help you out. Because that sure sounds like a really lot for one pregnant lady to have to do by herself!
Below is my weightloss ticker. This is not for the pregnancy weight to come off as it has pretty much all came off. The rest of it is just what I've been wanting to loose for a while now to get back to my healthier weight!
