Hello World

Well this past weekend was another super busy one, which, of course....I loved!!! We had our 3rd Annual Friendstivus, which was a major success, aside from the fact that a lot of people ended up not making it out (boo)! I get that life pops up but have the decency to call, or even text! Geesh... what happened to manners? It could very well be my life karma for being the worst RSVP'er in the land, so I better stop ranting now!
Friendstivus is our way of getting together with our nearest and dearest during a busy holiday time! We usually laugh too much, eat too much and drink too much, aaaaaand.... this year was no exception! Our theme was Pajama-rama! Let me explain something...I have yet to meet someone as passionate about theme parties as I am. Usually whomever I suggest a theme party to, ends up looking at me, thinking 'is this for real or is she joking?' It is for real! I just absolutely LOVE theme parties! Needless to say, I was soooooo happy when Katie loved my idea!! She very well may be my party-planning soul mate. Everyone pretty much had a blast... I mean come over in your cozy PJ's, eat yummy breakfast and wash it down with bloody marys or spiked hot cocoa? Yes, please!!!
Here are some pictures to prove it!

Begin Kinect craziness now!

The remaining bunch of crazies decided it would be a great idea to enjoy a tiny fire pit outside in 20 degree weather!

Olive is a trooper!

Today after surviving a 5 hour meeting (bleh) I began preparations for our 3rd Annual Frienstivus!
Friendstivus is the Bogle's (us) and Bernie's (bestie's) way of celebrating the season with our friends. We host our friends for an evening of delicious food and debaucherous fun!
This years theme is pajama party. We are serving breakfast for dinner to fit the bill! We are also having a mimosa bar, spiked hot chocolate bar and a bloody mary bar- can't forget the booze! Oh, and there is also 'milk and cookies'- minus the milk. We think after drinking hooch, milk might be a little icky. There are lots of other goodies in store, too! I am making egg burritos, hasbrown casserole, nutella cookies, pumpkin spice cookies and some fudge! YUM! I could seriously whoof down a burrito right now, I am so starved. Hopefully the hubs will be ready to start date night soon... I've already started with a glass of Cupcake Red Velvet (fave).
Happy Friday!

It's been soooo long!

I have been a horrible blogger BUT am really wishing and hoping to get better about it! I absolutely adore reading others blogs so I have no problem keeping up with that. When I sit down to open up blogger I always intend to write, but feel stumped. I enjoy reading the blogs that I do for so many varied reasons, but mostly because you all are fab writers! Whether you are writing about products you love, the life you are living or nothing at all... I love it! And then I get writer's block... I just don't feel as creative as you all. I start over thinking it and then it just sucks all the life out of blogging.
I need to get over myself. That is pretty much all there is to it. I need to sit down and blog. I have got to just let it be an expression of myself and not worry so much about if I am up to par with the creative juices you all express! Because I am not up to par and that is A-OK! It's me!
