What are you up to this weekend?
(This post may contain affiliate links)
We're hosting this month's Spaghetti Saturday. I'm really looking forward to it
On the menu? Iowa sweet corn, BLTs, potato salad, and one of our all-time favorite cookies
This month will be one of our larger parties. With everyone back from summer vacations, we're expecting 25 to 30 people. It'll be fun to catch up
I also tucked invitations into the pool bags of a couple of the water-walking women, and they said yes(!) It'll be funny to see each other when we're not all lathered up with sunscreen, our hair is brushed, and we're not wearing swimming suits
Plus, this will be Harry & Sally's first Spaghetti Saturday. Admittedly, I'm a wee bit nervous. They'ree pretty shy around strangers, and potty training (while we've made huge strides) isn't quite a hundred percent.
Something tells me we'll do just fine
Whatever you're up to, I hope you have a good one!
