For Olivia’s baptism, Jill and I are currently debating on whether or not to have a big party afterwards with aunts and uncles and cousins and friends, or to keep it simple with just immediate family and godparents. Of course she wants a small gathering while I want to invite everyone from the Chicago metropolitan area. So I think this is as good a time as any to re-hash my old Wife/Husband party planning checklist from last year. Now you might say, “hey Brian, isn’t this just a lame attempt to re-blog one of your old posts rather than, oh I don’t know, actually coming up with new material?” To which I say, hey go eff yourself. It’s hard coming up with new material every day. Be thankful for what you get.
And yes, that’s exactly what this is. So enjoy. Again.
