Let the Craziness Begin!

I can't believe how much I still have left to do for tomorrow's party. We have the food ordered, but not the desserts. I still need to order some dessert trays and I am hoping I can still get them ordered this late in the game. Not to mention I need to grab about 3 or 4 lbs of shrimp and get all the drinks and make a few gallons of my amazing Sangria and get my eyebrows done, and pick up a package at Fed Ex and..... Maybe I should stop there! I think the to do list is growing as much as the guest list. I don't know how we are going to fit all these people in our house! We are not a formal couple, so we didn't want to have something at a hotel or venue - so a good old fashioned house party seemed perfect. But now I really worry about how crammed my house will be. At least for the first few hours - I think most people will leave after a few hours and that is probably when the real party will begin! HA! Did I mention that my husband still hasn't talked to our neighbors to let them know we are going to be having so many people over and music going and everything? We definitely will have to extend an invite to the neighbors when we let them know - so that is more people! It is going to be insane. But I know once all this work is done, I will get to relax and have a good time celebrating our 15th year of marriage with several friends. I can't wait for that! Since we are having everything catered, there isn't going to be the worry of stress or cooking involved so that is good. Sorry no Spanish food tomorrow night!

Oh wait did I mention - I DON"T HAVE ANYTHING TO WEAR!!!! I have no clue what I am wearing. I wanted to wear jeans and a cute top - well in the town I live in, there is nothing! I would have to go to Orlando to try to find something decent. I just don't have that kind of time. I am so frustrated over what to wear - nothing seems to work. I don't know - maybe I will break down and wear a casual dress or something. It is my party after all! HA! Any ideas or inspiration on this one are appreciated! Let's not even get into the fact that somewhere in there I have to squeeze in my pedicure and manicure. Oh Boy! Can I please multiply myself?

Here is a swatch I did a few weeks ago. I keep thinking of this color and was thinking of wearing this one tomorrow night with a purple pedi. What do you think?

This is Sonia Kashuk Smoke and Mirrors. I showed you this one on one nail before, but I also swatched it on one hand. I have been dying to use this one as a full on mani. I am trying to decide between this one and RBL Killa Red. (which I have shown before and will feature again during my upcoming Rescue Beauty Lounge Nail Polish Week). I guess it will depend on what I find for an outfit.  What do you think? Any other ideas? You ladies are great!
