Meet Regina and Al. Their friendship and respect for one another all started at a fundraiser before a Phillies baseball game in 2019. “I watched Regina give a beautiful speech at the event about her recently diagnosed son, Shane,” recalled Al. “I thought to myself, ‘My friends at Cure SMA need to meet this amazing mom and get her involved.’”
Happy December! I’m two days away from a “Star Wars” marathon that I’ve been planning for months and have been dreaming about for years. At least 10 people are coming, which doesn’t sound like a lot, but it’ll be the biggest party I’ve ever hosted. I’m excited, but also nervous. I’m honestly relieved that we’ll be watching movies the entire day.
If it were just my best friends, I would be fine, but there are several people coming that I’ve never even met. It’ll be interesting for sure. I have another party on the weekend of the 13th, but that’s just my annual holiday gathering with my friends, so I’m not as worried about that. It’ll just be a chill hangout.
Do y’all have any tips for hosting with SMA? I’ll take anything!
Always provide pizza, and your guests will be happy. 🙂
But, like DeAnn said, don’t stress! When I host parties I ask people to bring either an appetizer or dessert. Then I go shopping for the main dishes (burgers, dogs, pizza, etc.), drinks, and cutlery. This obviously won’t apply to your movie night but I always make a playlist on Spotify to have playing in the background too.
