Where has the time gone?

My softie is 'due' tomorrow for the swap! Eeeek!!! I have spent the last 2 weeks completely moving my in-laws who lived in their house for over 20 years. I am so happy that they are starting a new, clean chapter in their lives, but man that was a lot of moving and purging! Of course the move was the week before Olivia's birthday party. Just the thought of having 60+ people at my house is cause enough for panic, but with much planning and preparation, we were able to successfully pull off an amazing party that was compared by many to a wedding. I am so proud to be able to celebrate my little girl's first year of life with (almost) all of our family and friends. The party went off without a hitch. The rain waited until Sunday so we all stayed dry and warm. Yesterday I didn't know what to do with myself... I didn't have any moving, unpacking, party planning or errands to run! I enjoyed the morning visit with my in-laws watching Olivia play in her new playhouse thanks to her favorite Auntie. We watched the football game and Beauty and the Beast. I haven't watched that much TV combined in the last month :) I now feel rested and recuperated. Tonight I will finish cleaning my house from the madness of everyone being at my house and finishing my softie. I will post pictures of the party after I upload the pictures (another thing on my to-do list for tonight) and of my softie before I send it out. Well a sneak peak at least. I would hate to spoil the surprise for my partner!

Time has a mind of its own when you're a mama, doesn't it?! It sounds like you got it all done though!
