    I'm pretty sure we have most things done that can be accomplished ahead of time. We did have some rain and had to pull in some outside props and lights that we JUST put out on Sunday, so that will need re-doing. Otherwise, just a few random bits and bobs and some more substantial work on our costumes, but still easily manageable between tomorrow and Friday. I am taking Friday off, and coming home early to clean tomorrow. I can't wait for Saturday! I hope everyone enjoys the rest of their hectic weeks. Don't get too stressed, if it doesn't get done, it just doesn't. Your guests will surely appreciate all the hard work that you did do, and probably won't even notice if something is missing. Enjoy!

    Lisaloo, great reminder there about not stressing if it doesn't get all done. Most of my guests really couldn't care less, they just want to come party but I am the one who always wants it to be perfect!
    Have a great party everyone!!

    It's comforting to see that I am not the only one who is down to the last minute on things. My party is the 22nd as well, and I'm also pretty stressed. My costumes are ready (doing a costume change this year) I'm ordering pizza and wings as the 'main food' so im not having to worry about that. inside decor is 95% done

    Issues--- ALOT of strong wind lastnight, so I gotta redo all of the outside, what a mess!!! Luckily, it should only take an hour or so.
    I still have to make 'dirt cups' (i didnt want it done too early because they might start to dry out (the cake part)
    I STILL have to find prizes for the costume categories, which is-
    sexiest
    scariest
    most original
    funniest
    overall best
    ----I just don't know what to do yet...I was thinking for sexiest, since itll be a female, a pumpkin candle??
    But I don't know what to get the others.

    I do still have to buy the alcohol!- I don't like to get the beer to early or else it goes 'skunky' i guess, I don't drink beer personally.
    All the liquor and mixers

    Also just got one more prop, and i had forgot about it so now i have nowhere to put it! Everything is full already.

    Cleaning is my main concern....got laundry all done yesterday so saturday after our showers i can do one load of everything and itll all be done.
    Gotta scour bathroom, which i did a few days ago, but i want it freshly cleaned
    still have to move our AirConditioner! *which my hubby was sposed to do about one month ago, u know how men are!* :P

    But im not as stressed as lastyear ..Lastyear i was decorating 10 minutes before our first guest showed!
    THis year, Im taking friday off so that I can be WELL prepared ahead of time. If a dedicate the rest of today when i get home (4pm) all day tomorrow and all day satuday until 6pm, when i put on my costume, I hopefully will be prepared. *fingers crossed* though because I just found out his brother isn't going to come and help because he has to wait for his g/f to get outta work and pick her up..

    48 Hours UGGHH! Got scene setters up today! Lots of phone calls - still haven't gotten wood for the bonfire - hate to have to pay for it, but looks like I will have to this year, however if I do pay they will deliver. Heading out to the garage to get some stuff done. Deep Breath!

    Arrrr...today is the day I've been dreading - food prep day. I'd rather clean my whole house, twice, than bake a cake. Off to...well,...bake a cake......

    Have a productive day everyone!

    Why am I sitting on my butt in front of the computer? Off for the mad dash to get as much done as possible so I can have a easy day tomorrow (Yeah Right)

    I really hope I'm not jinxing myself and speaking too soon, but... I'm feeling really good about this year! It's our 10th annual party and everyone is really looking forward to it. My Hubby really stepped it up and we've got the whole inside of the house decorated. (that feels good!) I'll get off work early today and go home to decorate the patio, and clean again.

    Last night we had friends over for pumpkin carving and silly 80's movie-watching:

    These are just a couple of the amazing pumpkins they carved! My whole table is full of Jack-O-Lanterns! But the entire floor is covered in pumpkin guts and seeds. We had fun, LOL! I was too tired at 12:30 last night to clean it up, so I'll do it after work today.

    All I have for tomorrow is food set-up and ice buying. I HATE buying the ice. I don't have a good reason for it, I just hate doing it!

    Good luck everyone! I can't wait for the pictures to start showing up!

    Take a deep breath everyone. It will be great! I can't wait to see the pics and hear the details. We have one party down and the Boo Bash next week on the 29th.
