As we enter the holiday season, we have quite a few dates that we’re entertaining. We’re hosting Thanksgiving and also dinner with Ryan’s family on Christmas Eve. I’m also contemplating a New Years Eve pot-luck. I’d probably throw in a few more dates if I could afford it… I’m so excited to have a home that we can entertain in!
I’ve also been hosting scrapbook nights at our house… we have a full basement that we’ve been using. Tonight was the second scrapbook night and I spent the day getting the house ready (even though no one spent much time in the upstairs of the house) and preparing to have snacks and drinks while scrapping. It occurred to me, while I was stock piling ice cubes into Ziploc bags, that perhaps I’m into this whole “scrapbook night” as a way to just have girlfriends over and to socialize. And well, what’s wrong with that? It fulfills my desire to entertain in small increments.
I always have a great time with the girls whenever we scrap. We always are laughing at something or another, we always have great conversation and we even manage to throw together a scrapbook page or two! I love this little “scrapbook group” we’ve molded into and I love that its made up of many friends from many different circles and we all mesh together so well.
Tonight our group consisted of Lori, LeeAnn, Jane and my friend/co-worker Gina. We had a great time listening to Dave, O.A.R, Hootie and the Blow
shitfish and other Pandora picks, mopping up Gina’s spilled margarita, stuffing our faces with leftover Halloween candy and chit chatting about tv, kids, husbands, friends, blogging, and life in general.
Thank you, ladies, for a great social tradition that I truly cherish!
