Exhaustion never felt so good

So my husband is now 30. And Saturday found us celebrating in a big way.

We have a one-bedroom apartment so we made the party an open house (so people could come and go - we don't have space for everyone all at once), and it was so much fun!

The party included a 124-lb. dog, a 2-year old who danced like a robot, video games, and lots of love and laughter. Ben and I were both exhausted that night but in such a good way.

Want to see a few pictures?

Oh this thing? Just the craft that I almost had a panic attack over, but was actually fun to make. Hello, balloon wreath! (More details coming soon!)

The "wish" station where people could write a wish for Ben's 30th year.

Ah, the life of Dude - it's rough indeed.

We've had friends over before, but never this big of a group in a party setting. It was exciting to be able to invite everyone into our home (one that's not super tiny and seems like a dark basement), and to know after they left they had a great time.

Do you like to throw parties or are you better with small groups? How was your weekend?

That sounds SO awesome Becky! I know how much work you put into planning this and looks like it was totally worth it. Way to go! I love that picture of you and Ben too :)

This looks like so much fun! You both look so happy in that photo! I am glad Ben had a great part - good job on planning it!

I like to entertain, but kind of prefer smaller groups of 8-10? Or my family which is 17... If I had more room, I could handle more people, of course. I like that open house approach as it solves the space issue. Great idea!

This looks like an amazing party! I love the balloon wreath, that thing is awesome! An open house is such a good idea if you don't have enough space for everyone at once.

I like to have parties but I get pretty stressed doing them so I don't do them often. I was just thinking I need to have another one soon- I just need an excuse!
