Does going to the movies alone make me an introvert?

Are you an introvert? Or an extravert?

This question has always confused me.

I’m not shy.

If there’s a party or something fun happening I’d like to be there. (Please invite me!)

I don’t normally have a hard time making friends.

Usually I’m pretty confortable in social settings.

But also…

Ask me my favorite way to spend a day at my discrepancy?

Alone. Probably a cafe or beach or shopping will be involved. There will be books, perhaps music, a nap, my computer (no internet necessary).

And maybe, maaaaybe a friend.

But probably not. Probably I’ll be on my own.

Does this mean I’m in introvert?

I used to go to the movies alone sometimes, on purpose.

Introvert?

I love hosting parties.

Extrovert?

Anyway, who cares really. It is what it is. I think I’ve written on this before actually, but lately I just keep seeing things online about being introverted so I suppose it’s on my mind a little.

And to be honest? Tonight I just didn’t feel like writing and so decided I would write the first thing that popped into my mind.

So there it is.

Introverted or extraverted, that is the question.

But it doesnt’ really matter, right? At the end of hte day, we all need people… adn we all need to be alone.

STOP.

 

Q for you: Are you an introvert or an extrovert? Does it really matter?

Simple

 

I said I was going to keep it simple.

Last year since it was Levi’s first birthday (a big deal for us, more than him) I went all out. Crafting, decorating, baking.

I think I had planned the whole party in my head months before it ever came. Not becuase i was eager for him to turn one, but because I just love throwing parties.

And knowing that “two” is not as big a deal as “one” I had said I’d keep it more low key this year.

I’ve done that… sort of.

At lease far few people are invited this year. That counts, right?

We’re having a cowboy theme party. It actually all centres around an adorable pair of aligator skin cowboy boots that my mom for got Levi while I was still pregnant. She found them in a thrift store and couldn’t pass them up. Indeed, they are too cute.

And since he’s about to grow out of those, I needed to do something to send them out in style.

So cowboy theme it is. (And seriously, Ryan and I love any excuse to dress up hte kiddos in cute gear. Ha!)

I have been crafting, dreaming, cutting, glueing, plannng, etc-er-ing. Yup, I’m excited.

I will probably always be “that mom” that just loves to throw a good party. it’s not that I’m an over-acheiever or anything like that… it’ just that I enjoy it. Truly. I really dig this sort of thing.

So this year’s “simple” really just means that I tried to keep it simiple… and I tried to invite less people. (And of course this year is much more abotu the kids than the grown-ups!)

Party day is tomorrow and I’m ready to get my bandana on.

Can’t wait.

By the way, is it weird taht I’ve already picked a theme for Judah’s 1st birthday party? I’m thinking circus…. We’ll see.

STOP.

Q for you: Are you a planner? Do you love hosting parties as much as I do?

Love,
A
