New Friends and Great Memories

Friday night Matt and I went to a Christmas party hosted by MckMama. Yes, both Matt and I. And you know what...I am pretty sure he had just as fun as I did...no lie! Of course he was a little hesitant at first about the whole bloggy friend thing but being such a great sport he said he would go anyway. We had an awesome time. I already knew a few girls there but considering a lot of people (especially the guys) were meeting each other for the first time, it felt like we all had been friends forever. Or at least awhile.

There was massive amounts of desserts, wine, sparkling juice, awesome live music, tons of laughter, many funny stories and great memories.

So you want to see all the great memories we had? Yeah, me too. Unfortunately I was having too much fun and forgot to take pictures. I got one. I didn't even get one of the group shots but hopefully I can get them from some of the other girls that did.

Here is the one shot I got. Me with my friends Sarah and Jolene and my new awesome friend Mama M. Her Bestie Tara was there too and everyone loved her. (Hi Tara!!) :)

And look, we all must have got the wear a black sweater memo. :)

I think we decided that MckMama needed to have us all over once a month...or a couple times a year...or at least an annual Christmas party.

Thanks Jennifer for the awesome party!

Hi Laura,
Your family is beautiful and your blog adorable. I was a late arrival at the MckGathering but still had a great time. What a wonderful group of people.

I can relate to your holiday decorating post. I've been blogging about that for the past week.

I goofed up the URL I wrote on the sheet everyone took home with them. It's offcamerawithtrish.blogspot.com if you want to check out my post on the party.

I wish you and your family a blessed Christmas!

Mama M. said...
