BUT - before all that happens:
I had a really fun New Years Eve party! I love love love my friends!! They are great people and it's such a great mix of personalities that blends well together. I adore them all.
Blackberry brandy slush!!!You can find the recipe here.
This is by far my favorite drink and if you were at my house on Friday night, you would have witnessed evidence of this, as my glass was never empty for long!
I think there were about 15 people here at most, which was a perfect amount. Some left, then some more came. I saw some people I rarely ever see, which was wonderful. One of the CRNA's I used to work with at the hospital came with his lovely wife (she's a social worker-you have to love her just from that info). Some work people came. My bestest pal J-Mac made it. Young Natalie's sister and husband came (they were a ton of fun!).
Since I was so busy with a full drink in my hands at all times, I didn't get a lot of photos myself, but thankfully, Denis and Natalie took some too.
Andrew was with us at the beginning and wanted to play Mafia so we had a few rounds of that, which is always fun when you have over 10 people. We did lots of chatting it up and then played some rousing games of Spoons - the best game in the world. It was a great night, and I'm not just saying that because I drank twice as much as normal! Others agreed!!
Like these folks:
|Could they be a cuter couple?? Rob-Bob and Courtney.|
|Adorable!! Mike and J-Mac.|
Our Canadian friend Denis brought a remote control for my camera, which was a TON of fun and which I MUST buy soon. We worked really hard to get a photo of us popping our poppers at midnight...and the only photo that came out as an action shot was one where I look like I'm being attacked...but disregard my scary face (and this makes up for posting the funny pic of J-Mac up above).
|Denis, Jeff, my hideous face, Michele, Courtney, Phil, Rob-Bob, Natalie|
Bring it on 2011...I'm ready for some more fun!
