Days weeks months....

Where does the time go? I have a project list so long I can not even look at it anymore. Parties slowed down for a while but are now picking up, Thank You!

HOLIDAY PARTY - we did a girls PJ nite, BEST idea ever. Each woman loved wearing their most comfy clothes. I made Merry Berry Martinis and an antipasta platter, yum. We played Holiday Trivia, Grinch Exchange and an Ornament Exchange. One wonderful woman gave each of us a ball ornament with everyone's last name and the year, I see a new tradition of making the ornaments at the party. We already have a hostess for next year, can't wait.

VALENTINE'S DAY PARTY - instead of going out to dinner, we're having a Fondue Party at one couple's house. We're doing cheese, bread cubes, veggies, apples, steak, chicken, shrimp and chocolate strawberries, delicious. Each couple is to bring their wedding album/photos as we all are newer friends and did not know each other when we all married. I have planned a fun renewal ceremony for each couple. I'll play the minister using funny snippets of information and I have a fake big gem ring for each woman and a veil and bouquet, thinking of ideas for the drop drop. We'll play a famous couples trivia, valentine pictionary and the newlywed game(need new questions as we just played for NY eve). Looking for a few more games. Created an ipod mix with great hits such as
