So I messed up. Majorly.
I am Chairing a fundraiser in October for the second time and the Underwriting Dinner is this Saturday. During the summer I tried to balance keeping posts coming every day, entertaining the kids and planning this dinner and event in spurts throughout the day. I made the mistake of saying “September 30th” instead of “August 30th” when I first booked the caterer and we never really chatted about the date again. It was only when I sent them an email confirming what time they would be arriving on Saturday that the mistake was realized. And that they had a 250 person wedding this Saturday and weren’t sure what they would be able to do for us. So I started crying. I was so angry at myself for missing this. How was I going to find a caterer to feed 50 people in only a few days? This sort of mistake is unlike me and I was in a panic.
Thanks to this amazing caterer, they were able to figure out a way to provide the dinner for our 50 guests while also catering the wedding. They completely bailed me out of my mistake and we are all good to go for Saturday. I could not thank them enough on the phone and their kind gesture to fix my mistake means I will forever use them and refer them in the future.
I tell this little tale not to get any sympathy but to just be honest in that sometimes as moms we really are juggling so many things and every now and then, a ball drops. It just happens. And it is okay. We are constantly trying to tell our kids that perfection is not obtainable but then we forget to remind ourselves, expecting everything we do to be perfect. It just won’t be. This situation has reminded me that I need to SLOW DOWN. I need to stop rushing from one responsibility to the next and take a breathe. Should I have caught this earlier? Yes. Is it 100% my fault. Absolutely. Is it a major issue in life? Nope. And so I have moved on. Sometime you just need to chalk it up to a mistake and forget about it.
I went “Back to School” shopping with Baby Girl and this dress was one of my favorite items we picked up. I wish it came in my size.
Have you shopped the Nordstrom Clearance Sale yet? There are so many goodies.
Love this Cleobella bag for Fall.
I am a huge fan of Asics and love these retro black ones.
Thanks to Hurricane Marie, the waves in Orange County have been insane. There are so many cool videos out there but here are just a few.
We haven’t made these in so long and thinking of pulling them out for the holiday weekend.
Do you wear any of these after Labor Day? Truthfully, I do not wear many of them ever.
I was sent this anti-aging neck creme and am really liking it. Remember, it is not just your face you need to worry about.
Big News: She is NOT a cat. And Goofy is NOT a dog.
There is a major kimono sale going on.
Happy Holiday Weekend.
