... and we are hosting for the first time, which means there are a lot of statements like this floating around our house this weekend ...
*digs out dusty "fancy" cutlery set in the basement*
"I didn't like this gift at the time, but now I'm super grateful for it."
"On a scale of 1 to 10, how important are cloth napkins?"
"Do we have enough large plates?"
*makes note to buy more Corelle at Walmart*
"Are paper napkins acceptable if they're Thanksgiving-y and kind of fancy?"
"WHERE DOES A PERSON BUY TABLECLOTHS THAT AREN'T $40 each?!"
"Can you make them?"
"Out of WHAT? PINK CHEVRON FABRIC?"
"We're going to need plates for dessert, too, aren't we?"
*counts small plates*
"I already feel the walls closing in around me."
"Shit ... we don't own a gravy boat, do we?"
