9 years!!!

I can't believe that it's been 9 years since the first Girl's Christmas Party....I am pretty sure I was at the first one....a long time ago....and have been fortunate to be part of many of them over the years. This year was awesome, once again, even though I opted to not participate in the gift exchange. Admittedly, this is always a blast, but I'm trying to downsize, and while the gifts were so much fun, I really don't need anything else!!

A few of the girls have done some great write ups (Kara, Shaunna, Courtney), and they include the best of the I'm going to be super lazy, and just borrow their work. :)

One thing I will add though, is on Shaunna's comment regarding meeting people that we hadn't met before except through blogs. I knew most of the girls already, and follow their blogs, but tonight was the first (I'm sure) for me and Kara. I was standing in the kitchen, when one of the girls I hadn't met yet, said "Oh my gosh, it's "All Things AP!"....." and then not 2 minutes later, after she walked in....."and that's Kara!!!". It was so different to be on the other side of the fence, being the one that is known for these silly things called blogs. I can remember back when almost a year and a half ago, I went to meet Amalah, someone who's blog I'd been reading for a while, and never met (and never commented), and how neat that was. So, thank you to my new friends, for making me feel special. :)

I'm so glad you could come to the party before you left town for the holidays!
