My Party!!!

...my party was Saturday. Matt did a great job cleaning the house all day Friday! I did a couple things but according to him, I didn't clean so I'm giving him all the credit-thanks Pretty for your help!

I think I ended up having 15 people from all my walks of life! Some were from work, some blogger friends, some college friends and some family. My friend Jenny couldn't remember which house was ours. She knocked on the door and someone said, "Come in!" So she did and then realized she was at the wrong house! My neighbor pointed her in the right direction and told her to tell us hello. HA! I only snapped one photo of the evening-oops!
OH! I totally forgot to take a picture of all the food! I was worried we wouldn't have enough but we ended up with plenty, Matt was a very happy camper when he got home on Sunday from the farm to all the leftovers.

We had the 31 lady in the basement, she was the "quieter" side of the party because really people just went down there to place their orders. My friend Stevie ordered all 9 of her bridesmaids (including me!) tote bags with our initial on it. I can't wait to get mine...in April 2012!

Haley was there as the waitress. She did a good job taking everyone's coats and getting them a drink. After everyone arrived though, she got an earache so she went to my room to lay down. She wanted Emma so I brought her upstairs but Emma only wanted me so she cried. Here's a picture I snapped of them, as you can tell Emma was NOT happy.
She was passed out sound asleep by the time they left. Overall, I would have to say that my third party ever at my house (the first being 5 years ago and the other being outside when we had the pool) was pretty successful. I was kind of bummed though because I didn't get much time to chat with anyone individually and some of the girls I hadn't seen in FOREVER!!! Oh well, the good thing (well depends on how you look at it!) is that all the 31 stuff comes to me so I'll have to deliver it to the ladies and hopefully have a chance to visit and catch up then.

Thank you everyone for coming and ordering! I'll do a follow-up post when I get the stuff I ordered. What'd everyone else order or what'd you do this weekend?

Thanks for having us over! It was fun. I'm just patiently waiting for my beer bread! Then we'll have to have another party to eat it!

Glad the parties went well! My SIL had some cheese dip from Tastefully Simple at my nephew's bday this weekend. I swear there was crack in it.
