I actually haven't done an Outfit of the Day post in a while. These photos were taken in semi-darkness with flash so sorry if the lighting is a bit weird! (Watch the video on my thought process styling this outfit here.) Yesterday was Family Friday, where my family comes over to our house for dinner and Jonathan and I cook for them. Last night's dinner was a huge success thanks to this recipe on a great food blog I follow! Our pizzas all turned out great, despite our lack of proper baking trays (we had to cook some of them in a casserole dish) and everyone had a lot of fun putting their own toppings on! I really recommend this if you're having a family dinner with not too many people (we were five people total). It ended up being quite messy but everyone seemed to enjoy themselves and the pizzas tasted delicious!
I only wish I had been a little less stressed during the whole process...sometimes I feel I am too highly strung. I've always been a perfectionist and I tend to obsess over the tiniest details and end up not enjoying myself at all because of course, nothing is perfect and life is messy and full of accidents. Example: when I was preparing food yesterday, I was reaching for a chopping board and I accidentally knocked over a large bottle of Diet Coke, which fell on the floor and into Albi's water and food bowls, spilling water and dog food everywhere. I screamed and started crying, although my initial thoughts were to smash everything in sight...yeah, not exactly a "normal" reaction to a small accident in which nothing actually got damaged or destroyed. *sigh* I really wish I could relax a bit more and not get so worked up about silly things like that!
On the other hand, my fiancé is the total opposite of me. It takes a LOT of work to get him stressed...he's just so mellow and relaxed all the time which I'm a little jealous of. It's a good thing though, because that way we balance each other out!
Are you the uptight or the relaxed one in your relationship?
