Deck the Halls!

I have definitely fell of the "blogging" bandwagon, but for good reason. I have been so busy with Holiday Market that I haven't had a second to think straight. I am so glad it is over and that I don't have to think about it again until May...and then I will be the CHAIR, rather than the CO-CHAIR, which scares the living crap out of me. To think I have to be solely responsible for the entire auction, considering how complicated I discovered it all is, is terrifying. Oh well....I will be fine. I guess I just need to get pregnant so I have another excuse not to work! haha, just kidding...well - kind of.
Here are some pics of the Opening Night Gala, where our company bought a table for all of our friends. It was so much fun!
Kristi and Monique came up for Holiday Market Girls Night on Friday. We got to take a limo to the event, it was a blast.
After four days of being at the convention center from about 9 to midnight everyday, I was really excited to see my step mom on Sunday and start to get my Christmas up!
She is so amazing at holiday decor. She used to have a flower shop in Bella Vista and so she is very talented at arranging things. I saw a $350 arrangement at Sign, Sealed, and Delivered in Bentonville. I sent her a pic and she stopped by to see it so she could replicate it. She did such an amazing job, I even like hers better.
I am so lucky
I don't think the pics our work justice, but here they are.
PS....if anyone has any fabulous, signature dishes they make for the holidays, I would love to have the recipes. I need some unique recipes for a party I am having
ciao for now

Your tree and table decoration are FABULOUS!!
I want to see it in person. I think Sandy needs to go into business again. Glad to hear your silent auction was a success. Lola is sooo cute!
Happy Turkey Day!
Love you,
