Holiday Parties with my Girlfriends

This was a week of "girlfriend parties" for me. Thursday night was our Bunco Party with a Yankee Swap of gifts.

There were handmade scarves...
Girls hiding their gifts....
...girls "stealing" gifts from others...
...and lots of wine......and too much food...
And Friday was my "girlfriend happy hour" that I host yearly. Above is my dear friend Joni.
Friends from all walks of life....
and again, lots of food and wine (so much that I never took photos when everyone else arrived!)

There's nothing like a gathering of girls - lots of great stories, laughs and giggles!

I am happy to say that I am finished shopping, wrapping, baking, entertaining (until Christmas day, when there will be 12 for dinner) and I get to enjoy the week before the holiday by just relaxing!

Are you all ready?

  3. It sounds like you've had a lot of fun so far, Patti! I'm all done, too. Now it's just preparing for my son's arrival this week and going over the menu. We'll be going to my daughter's but I'm making a few things to add to our meal.

  4. I just need to wrap and prepare for our out of town son's arrival (he's always hungry) ;o) Girlfriends are such an important part of our life. Merry Christmas to you Patti!
