The past couple of nights have been filled with friends and laughter. I’m so thankful I have such great friends so close by.

Thursday night, Erika came over and we played a game of Life!

Ultimately, I won, but she did end up with a sweet tree house at the end. (Have you played this new ‘Extreme Life’? It’s pretty funny).

HOUSE PARTY

Last night, I hosted my second ‘House Party’ event. The first one was for Febreze back in the summer.

This time, the party was provided by Jolee Jewelry!

I turned the event into a dinner party for the girls.

  Since last week was our anniversary, we celebrated by going back to New England (where we got married) and doing a little roadtrip.

We flew on a redeye flight, and the sky was gorgeous as the sun was rising! Look at the moon!

We landed at 5am, so we took the T across the city to Harvard Square to get our rental car.

Early morning city:

Guess what we rented!!!

A Smart Car!

It was actually pretty roomy for all our luggage!

Our first stop (after grabbing some Dunkin Donuts Coffee) was to visit my lovely friend Shelby, who just had a baby, Harper, a couple of months ago!!

I miss my friend!

Harper was as adorable as I expected.

Love!

Irving held her for a while and Harper actually fell asleep in his arms!

But she loves her Daddy!

Later we watched the World Cup Semi-Finals

Irving was so excited tired that he fell asleep on the couch!

Looks like everyone was a little sleepy!

So Shelby and I took full advantage of the quiet house and played a game of Blokus!

We had such a great time visiting with Shelby and her beautiful family!

Fun Fact: Tiffany Theissen just named her baby Harper too!!

 

Oh my Manicotti! June 5, 2010

We had quite the little impromptu dinner party last night. It all started when we saw we had one bag of Manicotti in the pantry that we wanted to use.

So Irving whipped up some cheese filling to stuff them with…

And then we realized that we had WAYYYY too much filling for just one tray of Manicotti… in fact, we ended up with FOUR trays of it…double stacked!

IMG_3895

So we solved the problem by inviting 15 of our friends over dinner. It was such a great time!

IMG_3892

Ma nicotti (x4)!

Make-You-Own-Caesar-Salad Station:

Our friends also brought Homemade Bread, Veggies, Green Bean Casserole, Garlic Bread & Wine!

Janet brought over an AMAZING dessert! It was gone in like 10 minutes once we cut into it!
IMG_3901

With that many people at our house, we had a fun game of “Apples to Apples” going!
IMG_3903

We played in teams, which was SO much fun!

Erika and Timmy won in the end!

Then we played a few rounds of “Left, Right, Center”. We had some helpers rolling the dice for us! So cute!

We have great friends, thanks for coming over and entertaining us!
