Who Is It?

Okay, so I haven't posted in a while.

In my own defense, I was VERY sick last week. There's a terrible cold going around and I definitely had it. Might have been the worst cold I have ever had. Rylee was sick too but we're on the upswing currently. We both still have some congestion in our heads but things are looking up.

Saturday evening (thank goodness) I felt well enough to attend the Tango Christmas party with my husband. It was held at Fuse this year. Cocktail hour on the roof top (pool side during the winter, thankfully we were in a heated tent!) and then it was on to our room for dinner. We watched the Christmas video during dinner. Every year they make a Christmas video with a bunch of different skits and funny little "episodes." Rylee was asked to be in it this year. I had to take her up there last week (whilst sick) and coax her into saying different thing with M&M's. She did really well and her part was HILARIOUS. As soon as I figure out how to make this dvd into a quicktime, I'll post it here.

I choose the salmon for dinner and honestly, I wasn't that impressed. It seemed to be lacking something, there were no sides accompanying it and mine seemed to be a bit cold. I did enjoy my dessert choice though. I had french toast with sugar roasted pecans and tahitian vanilla ice cream. It was pretty delicious. I also enjoyed the plethora of alcohol we were served. That's always an extra special treat at the Tango Christmas parties.

Sunday we got up and headed out to Ikea to return an easel and pick up a few other things. I got some black and white napkins for the party, a serving dish, some dark brown cones (decorative) and we also bought a new chandelier for the entry way and a new fixture for the hall.


Super glad we got around to replacing that, the old one was awful.

We also did a little party decorating as well. I'm trying to get as much as I can get done in advance in possible. We hung pretty snowflakes from our ceiling and cleaned up the garage. We've turned it into a "lounge" area.

I purchased a few really great items from some Etsy shops recently that I'm dying to share with everyone. Can't do it just yet though, I wouldn't want to spoil the surprises!

I'm ALMOST done with my wrapping. I just have one gift to wrap for Rylee (the biggest one) and a few of Rodney's! I love wrapping presents though so I'll be sad when I am finished!

Hope to be back with the quicktime soon!
