Tim's Christmas gift to me was to let me redecorate our den. I never felt like it was cozy for some reason.
So... that picture was "before".
We had a big party at our house last night. I have been stressed about it and busy preparing for what I thought was going to be about 50 people but turned out to be more like 35-40. We had Macaroni Grill cater and I had seating for everyone. It was SO FUN!
I didn't have anywhere for the boys to go...so I just put them in bed before the party and they slept through the whole noisy thing. I am so glad they are good sleepers.
I put Angela in charge of taking pictures. I found some pretty interesting ones on my camera.
We had a raffle for a bunch of fun prizes like teeth whitening, a couples' relaxation massage at their house, free babysitting with dinner gift certificates, etc...
All the money went to our local crisis pregnancy center. We raised $520!! and we had a lot of fun doing it. I had the 2 pregnant girls draw the tickets. I thought they might be "lucky". ;)
Tiramisu!MMMMMMMMMMmmmm. I am eating some as I type.
Angela, Me, Kristy, Ginny.
That is Ryan. He is married to Ginny. He said that she is freakishly strong and told me to arm wrestle her. He is right. She is freakishly strong. I thought I was strong from carrying Lake. I was wrong.
So, then, Angela and I had to arm wrestle. It was a tie. We never moved for what seemed like an hour.
****Well, I think it was a success! We had a ball. I can't wait to take the money to AAA.
Steph, I LOVE your new den!!
Well, I loved it before, but now wow!! Really nice girl!!
Looked like a ton of fun.
So glad you guys raised all that money for AAA. I'm proud of you, a party with a purpose :)
I LOVE IT!!!!!!!!!!!! That girl taking your pictures sure was weird.
But where is the picture of you and Ginny arm wrestling?? C'mon, now, those were some funny shots.
Thanks for the marvelous time. I think the most amazing thing of all was that your boys slept through the whole thing.
Oh, I HATE that we had to miss! Our kids were sick, then I got sick too. :-( Just when we are getting involved in the class this would have been a great opportunity to fellowship with you all. I'm glad you all had so much fun, and your house looks gorgeous!
Love your new den, especially the polka dot fabric! What a fun party, and YUMMY Macaroni Grill!!! The picture of Tim and Ryan...Tim looks like he's all of about 20 years old!
I think I can see my throat in that picture. Why couldn't my number have been called before that? Ha!
Thanks for hosting us! We had a blast. I hope we did not wear out our welcome staying that long.
I was looking at your pictures and I saw an old friend - Ginny! We were sorority sisters in college - small world! I love your den!! Who makes all your curtains, pillows, etc? If you say you, I am coming down for you to teach me :) Glad you guys had a good time and what a wonderful cause!
Thanks for hosting the party! We had a great time!
Hey - this is Ginny, who is Pumphrey's?
Stephanie, we had a great time at your house - it was a fun pary. Hope to see you soon.
Love the new stuff. The curtains and the dog pillow ottoman are great. Come help me!!!!!!!!!!!
again...just as i said when you decorated at the beach...i wish i could fly you over to just do mine!! :-)
Your new room looks wonderful!!!! Great job!! And you know I love that chair:) I'm actually working on a sofa (yikes!) so it is taking awhile (during the holidays!) but I promise to share pictures soon.
Your party looked like such fun!
Dude, sorry we missed the party! We've been going crazy for the past two months--travel, sickness, travel, sickness... non-stop.
