This week has been full of parties.
Party One – Chris’ Birthday. We had a crab boil.
Seriously, if you’ve never done a crab boil before, you haven’t lived.
It is such a fun, interactive thing to do with your family/friends. And the cleanup involves no dishes, rolling the entire mess up in newspaper, and throwing it away when done. Learn how to do a Crab Boil here.
We had a ball with the kids eating seafood off the table and celebrating Chris’ birthday. There was a cookie cake involved as well.
Need I say more?
Party Two – Mr. Wonderful’s work party.
Mr. Wonderful changed jobs this year, and for the first time ever, we got to clean ourselves up, wear fine clothes and go to a fancy Christmas Party. Be still my heart. That man in a tux makes my heart just go pitter patter.
The food was fabulous, and we actually got to sit with Jason and Lindsay. I met a bazillion new people. It was nice to step out on the town together, even if it was bitter cold.
Here’s a randon thought…why do men always get to wear nice warm tuxes while we wear sheer sequined outfits anyway?
Party three – I hosted a home party of a couple different products – Pampered Chef and Scentsy.
Bill needs his own cooking show. He kind of took over.
And he was funny.
Party Four – Conner’s birthday.
Wait…TWO cookie cakes.
And 7 or 8 boys stayed at my house until 5 P.M. the next evening when I told them there was no longer any food left. They wiped it all out.
Teenage boys would eat Spam if you put it out on a plate.
Party Five – Dinner’s for Twelve.
There was a whole lotta kissin goin on.
Come to think of it, there was no mistletoe either.
This is a monthly small group from our church. There’s always a theme – Fall Harvest, Tailgating, Around the World.
This month was Appetizers – Sweet & Savory.
There was plenty of both. And it was all amazingly wonderful.
The parties were fun. The week was insanely crazy.
By Sunday, all I wanted to do was curl up in a ball and watch the Hallmark Channel for hours.
Come to think of it, I did.
