I threw a party


I know; I can't believe it either. I think I might be one of the most social people I know. I will go anywhere, almost anytime, but I never like to be the entertainer. I feel too much pressure! Is everyone having fun? Is anyone being left out? Is my house clean enough? Do I have enough food? Is it time to start an "activity" or is everyone having fun chatting? Am I super fun, or super lame?

Last night my friend Marisa and I threw a fabulous--if I do say so-- party. Everyone we invited came and there were 12 girls (no kids!). Poor Matt! We did a homemade ornament exchange, white elephant gift, and had lots and lots of delicious food. I laughed so hard I was crying. I might just be more open to hosting these things a little more frequently now. I think everyone had fun...
I took so many pictures of Rachel laughing. I just couldn't get enough.









Two Chinese calenders? Pretty random, and pretty funny. The white elephant gifts were awesome. We had classic, super tacky, random, weird---the best white elephant exchange I have ever seen.
What a fun group. We're making this a yearly event...but next year, we are also going to incorporate ugly sweaters.

Wish I had been a fly on the wall. But I was busy with two little squirts!! So glad you girls had such a great time. Laughter is so good for a person!

I was actually present at the party that you hosted (& even though some would say I'm biassed because I did kneel down on one knee, by the side of the "Warm River" & ask for your hand in marriage, I thought that you hosted an excellent party!
