Late Partying

Good morning, party people! Did anyone else notice that half of the work force is off this week? I didn't have to slow down on the interstate this morning, and that never ever happens. Or maybe they weren't successfully dragged/drug kicking and screaming to work this morning like I was. Party foul. 

Why am I tired? Because this happened...
And any time we get together, it means it's a late night!

Saturday I started out the day in the stands cheering for my baby and the Rebels basketball team. We won again!! 26-11 this time. From there B rode with my dad to visit my sister who is in college about an hour north of where they currently live. Then she spent the night. 

My rush began at this point. My schedule was run home, dress up, run to Target for a present, bridal shower at 2, get downtown by 4, get back to Atoka (about an hour from downtown) by 6...yep, I may have scheduled a little too much for myself Saturday. I ended up getting to the shower LATE (surprised? nope, me either). Since that was late, the rest of my day ran late as usual so I had to cut something out. I missed the Memphis blogger meet up and that totally makes me a loser. I was really looking forward to it, but I didn't want to get to dinner as late as I would have been and then have to leave at a strict time to make it to my BFF's Christmas party. 

So I rushed my little late self from the shower, to Target again for a Christmas bag, fought the holiday traffic, witnessed a 6 car rearender pile up, and headed back to TCounty. About 6:45 I am hauling it into the neighborhood and I round the corner to see only my BFF and her hubs' vehicles....
I ended up being the first guest to arrive. That happened about two months ago too, so maybe I'm starting a new trend. Or my friends are just going to continue to lie to me about times. Whatever. 

From there we had an amazing time laughing our rears off at each other and teaching my friend Natalie how to hashtag. I swear, I wish I had a recording of some of the conversations we had....or maybe not! I ended up coming away with a nice huge mason jar thingy with spout like this...
And my friend Mandi took home the gift I brought....Magic Mike! And yes, that is Mr Tatum himself in the background of our group picture you see above. Amy hadn't see the movie yet, so we popped that bad boy in!
It was such a fun night with friends! I am so glad that we keep this annual Christmas party tradition going. This started with a girl Christmas party each year where we would dress up, play games, be crazy, and usually head out to someplace where we could dance afterwards. This group of friends got me through SO many ups and downs in the last 10 years and I love them dearly!

I commented on Lora's blog, my husband and one of my BFFs are always late so I normally tell them a different time than the true time! hahaha

I'm glad you guys had a great party!

2. I find that pic of all of hilarious because I am trying SO HARD to not look as drunk as I am. Fail.
3. I'm glad you were the first to arrive. is it weird that I don't remember you actually leaving?

Don't feel bad. We've been lying to my mom about what time events start for years in hopes that she may be on time. : )
