Tis the Season

We've done some serious partying at our house this year. Which is probably the reason I've stayed close to bed the first half of this week (well that and I have been getting 3-4 hours of sleep at night, so I try to catch up during the day).

But back to the fun stuff, partying! Who needs their fancy Nikon? My iPhone is the only way I take pictures these days.

My sorority alum group had a fun Tacky Sweater/White Elephant Party a while back.

Having fun with the bump

With some of the gals I advise with at AU.

I also coordinated our groups annual trip to the National Christmas Tree preceded by Cocktails (or in my case club soda) at POV- the roof top lounge at the W. It was really fun!

My junior league committee also had a fantastic party for the families we work with.

Our party coordinator and volunteers with some of the kiddos.

Among awesome gift bags, we also let the families add to their libraries by giving them hundreds of books!

Excited readers!

Last, but certainly not least. Josh and I hosted our annual holiday open house. Being the true prego brained lady I am, I totally forgot to snap pictures that night. I did take some during clean up the next morning.

Josh wanted to make jambalaya this year and boy did he. We joked he made jambalaya for 80, but our 50 or so guests had no problem finishing the extra large pot off.

We also served a lovely veggie platter, spinach and artichoke dip with crackers, cheese fondue, bruchetta, hot onion dip, bacon wrapped jalapenos, meatballs, and my aunt Sugies sausage balls.

This year I only made a few hundred cookies vs my 1,000+ last year. The always favorite Oreo balls were a hit.

Also a hit - homemade lemonchello brought by one of Joshs co-workers.

The bar was still in great shape the next morning-ha!

Hope you've been able able to share in the merriment of the season!!

Lots of Love,

So sorry I missed your party. So much to do before I made the trip to PA to celebrate the holiday with my family. Maybe I can make my way to DC to enjoy a brunch or lunch with you and Jenn!
