Yesterday was AWESOME!

So, as you read (https://upsanddownes.wordpress.com/2009/12/17/help-drowning-in-holiday-madness/) my schedule, it indicated that yesterday was quite busy…and boy it was!  BUT…SOOOOO productive and awesome!

BANGED.IT.OUT.

1.  Verizon wireless- OH HOW I LOVE THEE!  Wow, definitely NEVER thought i’d say that!  I went into the K of P store thinking it would be the usual- “it’s you not the phone” thing, but TIM at Verizon HOOKED IT UP!  My phone WAS actually messed up and they are sending me a new one!  NO need to re-read… yes, they are actually sending me a BRAND new bberry, it was NOT my fault (for once) AND the experience didn’t make me want to bang my head against the wall!  Wootwoot!

2. Onto Pier One I went!  So I quickly banged out gifts for Husband’s 3 secretaries (they are not all his but are all equally helpful ;-)) AND some REALLY cute stocking stuffers

The morning (day) after…

So last night’s party was a blast!  It was intimate and lovely!  A wonderful time…here are some picture highlights!  

Because of the snow (and the subsequent Philadelphia Snow Emergency), our usual menu had to be altered, as Chic-Fil-A and Philadelphia Soft Pretzel were both closed.  Therefore, there were some new additions to the menu, which turned out to be delish!  

Homemade baked ziti  

Total cheesey yumyum!

  

Funfetti cake (decorated by yours truly, who doesn’t necessarily excel in cake decorating) nicely decorated 😉  

The cookies surrounding it are plain Stella Dora cookies (Husband leaves those in the package hehe) that I iced for more excitement

  

And onto more icing, iced cookies (chocolate chip AND sugar)…and for those crazy people who don’t like like their cookies iced, I left some plain.  

another yumyum...and addictvie too 🙂

  

…I know what you’re thinking.  Yes, I was icing-happy.  But i think it worked ;-).  Here are some pictures of the table and decor:  

Food, glorious food!

  

The bar…the drink was peppermint martinis by the way, which were (adorably) garnished with mini candy canes.  🙂  

  

Fire was a roarin’  (thanks Husband!)  

  

I think Oscar is getting annoyed by my constant camera usage…I wonder who else is… 😉  

  

Anyway, it was a great time.  

I am currently watching Sweet Home Alabama.  I just love that movie.  I made a spaghetti squash and am waiting for it to cook.  this time, instead of halving it and putting the halves face down on a baking sheet (sprayed, of course), I sput them in a deeper pan like this…  

  

…face down with a cup of water in the bottom (for one hour on 350.) They fit perfectly!  

  

 Anyway, I will let you know how it turns out.  I am planning to do it “Italian Style” (with tomato sauce and cheese)…yumyum!  

So, I’m feeling bad out the passing of Brittany Murphy, age 32, today.  She was in three of my favorites, 8 Mile, Clueless, and the one with Ashton Kutcher (I forget the name)…anyway, RIP.   

  

OK, until later…
