Party like a rockstar, only quieter and with finger foods.

So I went to the family Christmas party last night.  Matt was under the weather, so I went solo.  I think it says a lot about my husband's family that I would go to their party without him.  They're awesome.

Matt's Aunt Flora won a stripper pole as a door prize.

I ended up with a pair of breast-shaped stress balls.  Which, beats massaging my own mammaries to relieve anxiety - not that I have been, but still.

And I ate a ton of fatty amazing hors d'oeuvres.  And I didn't drink.

I am home now, and prepping for my party I'm throwing with my friends.  That one has me excited.

Honestly, I've decided what I'd really like to do for my Christmas present is throw a party for New Years.

I don't think it will pan out, but that's the truth.  I don't need any "thing" really - except to be surrounded by people I love, laughing.

So, you know buy-in and a Kroger card for snacks.

I found this the other day, and it's how I'm feeling:


Now, to make some pumpkin dip.
