Although I have been a mom for almost 18 years, I am still not used to having my plans changed. I mean c’mon, with 6 kids, and a Husband who has been deployed as many times as we have kids, you would think I would be used to being flexible right?
In that sense, I planned a nice evening for a few of our Adult friends with a Wine & Cheese party, I did my shopping at Smart & Final. I may be missing sleep, but not common sense 😉
I shop at Smart & Final a few times a week, the prices are very low, there is no membership dues, and they accept coupons!!!
So off we went to shop for our fun evening…
I was so excited, we spent way under $100!!!
Now, back to not being used to having my schedule messed with, guess what happened the morning of our Wine & cheese party?
My 8yo Daughter broke her hand during school, not a hairline fracture, we’re talking about her wrist, broken 🙁
Let’s say that she had the giggles from the pain meds 😉
SO, after being all day in the hospital, she didn’t want to go home and go to bed, she asked if I could please not cancel the wine & cheese party, so we turned it into a “get well” get together for her 😉
We made another quick trip to Smart & Final, after all, Mommy was going to need some extra wine after this 😉
We bought shredded cheese and more supplies and we made homemade pizzas!
though it wasn’t the day I had planned, it was nice to be able to relax at home after such a terrible ordeal, eat some good food, and enjoy some “happy drinks” 😉
Is that awesome or what?!?!
So c’mon, do the Smart thing;
All opinions and suggestions are my own ideas, no other children were harmed in the planning of this party, said 8yo will be sporting a flashy bedazzled pink cast on Wednesday, thank you CB for sponsoring our shop.

I have always wanted to attend a wine and cheese party, but your idea to change it to a get well dinner for your daughter’s broken arm was just amazing. you are a devoted mother !
sorry about your Daughter.
She is a natural smiler I see.
You did an awesome job with your post, I saw the link on Twitter. I just love the way you did the whrrl story.
I came by from Twitter, I just love your blog. Your writing style is fun and captivating, and your children are absolutely adorable. The way you changed a grown up wine & cheese party to make your Daughter feel better is just amazing. The prices at Smart & Final are really good as well, and I appreciate you showing the world, I know that most often than not, the bigger stores get the spotlight.
Great job Lily!
what a great post and slide show!
I love how you turned around such a tragedy into something cute and fun. you are a great mother!
