It’s Lauren’s  birthday tonight and her man Scott invited everyone out to Donn’s Depot, Lauren’s favorite bar to celebrate. But before Donn’s we joined  Amy, Chris and Eric for dinner.

Since the new year started it seems as though everyone has been so busy. I haven’t seen much of these guys so it was awesome to see everyone.

What a cute couple.

And have I mentioned that Amy is preggo.

All in all it was a good night. I think Donn’s Depot might be my favorite bar now too.

Lauren and I got to talking the other day and comes to find out that she loves the Kardashians too. The season premiere is coming up so we decided to start it off right by getting everyone together and watching it over a few martinis.

Thing is, Lauren and I are the only die hard fans and I’m pretty sure no one else has even heard of them besides Ray since I make him watch it with me. They’re probably thinking we strategically put on this event as another reason to drink, which wouldn’t be completely false, but still we love the Kardashian’s

Dondra brought a friend. He was nice dude.

And guess what else, I finally got that damn ornament that Lauren bought me when we went to the Caswell House a while back. So cute.

Dondra brought some delicious bread that her mom made. Thanks Miss. Wilson again for being the fantastic baker that you are. Yeah, I’ll have to say it was another fabulous night. Oh, but I think we all could agree the worst part of our night was watching Jersey Shore. Serious? Lauren, stop watching that garbage.

Because of the Seinfeld we have so many fun terms and labels like Soup Nazi and Festivus Party. I almost feel bad that I wasn’t a Seinfeld fan. I could have learned so much. I mean, before today I would have never known what a Festivist Party was, hell I thought I was going to a sushi rolling party; I could have sworn that’s what Lauren said it was. I even got on FaceBook and boasted the news to everyone, “delicious, fun and entertaining,” I said.

Nope, not a sushi rolling party. Awe well, not the biggest fan of working for my food. But there was a lot of delicious food, even sushi. And I even got to roll my one, my first one ever.

And I finally got to meet Chris, Amy’s man. Yes, he exists. The whole time I thought he was just a figment of her imagination.

Me and the girls.

And yes there was even a pole, but instead of passing it around to bitch and gripe to our hearts content we put it to better use and used it as a stripper pole, so much more productive.

What a great night. Happy Festivus to you.

Tonight Amy asked me to assist her with a wedding at Angel Springs. I love weddings, I love Amy and I love helping my friends so how can I say no.

Turns out tonight the bride and groom are both cops. Well at least we know this wedding wont get busted if it gets too rowdy, all the cops are here getting fucked up. They ended the ceremony with the song, “Bad Boys.” Love it.

Tonight we are headed to the Caswell House, not really sure why we’re going but Lauren invited me and I’m sorta under the impression that it’s work related besides as soon as I heard free drinks I stopped asking questions.

I can’t tell you how whimsical and jaw-dropping this place was decked out. Talk about getting into the Christmas spirit. Every ornament and decoration was on sale and for a good cause because part of the proceeds are going to something good, I forgot exactly what but like I said it was for a good cause. The tree Lauren is standing next to in the photo above is hanging upside down and they managed to still make it look good. Ridiculous!

There’s some really great deals tonight, like this $5.99 Ho. Man don’t you just love Christmas?

So as amazing as this place was I still walked out empty handed. I just didn’t want to purchase a bunch of holiday crap that didn’t have a place in our very simplistic home. These days I’m done with wasting money.

Lauren did end up buying me an ornament of my choice and I picked the only robot one they had. I don’t know what happened to it but it never went home with me. After shopping for um, work related things we met the boys at The Pour House and ended the night over a few pitchers of beer playing washers

SocialFly is working the Central Market, Deck the Halls with Delicious Event tonight. The event will be taking place upstairs and not in the exact grocery store. I’m excited because Central Market is centered around food which means there will be lots and lots of samples of scrumptious, decadent treats and an open bar too. Yay!

My girls finally arrived  which is good because now I can leave the boys to work while I roam around and explore.

As always the booth is jam packed.

But we still manage to make it in for a couple rounds of photos.

It was a good night.

Thanks Central Market for having us.

Boy this year I might have bit off more than I can chew on Halloween. First, Cowboy Harley is hosting a fundraiser on Halloween called “Ride for the Girls.” All proceeds will go to breast cancer survivors and I couldn’t be more happy to lend in my hand. It’s been a while since I’ve done some volunteer work. I used to do it all the time and for some reason I don’t anymore. Shame on me.

Michelle Bromley worked the front desk, taking food orders, shouting them back to us and taking in the money. Amy, Dondra, and Julie worked on selling the raffle tickets.

And the rest of us worked the food line. That’s Lauren and her mom. They’re cute.

Scot stopped by to pick up a top hat he’s borrowing from SocialFly. He’s going to be Slash for Halloween.

Dondra stayed up the night before making a shit ton of cupcakes.

And kudos to Dondra’s mom for making all these cakes.

Lauren and Amy are too cute.

I worked the line serving up the food, giving everyone big portions of everything because people like getting their money’s worth and I like making people happy.

And lots of costumes out today.

But this little dude won the prize when it came to the cutest costume. Seriously, there was a costume contest and he won.

But this lady here melted my heart. She’s a breast cancer survivor and ended up winning the raffle ticket money prize and gave it all back to the fundraiser. What a good soul.

It was a good day to come out. Rudy’s donated all the delicious food and Cowboy Harley even gave away a motorcycle today. I entered in the drawing and pleaded to the universe that I should win but in the end they never called my name. Oh well, guess it wasn’t meant to be. I mean I don’t even know how to ride a damn motorcycle.

After the fundraiser I had to rush off to Memory Lane because SocialFly Photobooth is booked for a wedding tonight. I get there right on time because the boys are just about done with setting up which means less work for me to do.

Here’s their wedding cake, a freaking Dr. Pepper and a flat one. I love this couple already for their spunkiness and Ray loves them because he loves Dr. Pepper.

I love coming back to Memory Lane because being here always reminds me of the day we got married, definitely one of the best days of my life.

It wasn’t as amazing as our wedding but it was definitely nice.

So I am officially the “Professional Scrapbooker.” Oh, it’s a real title and I take my job very seriously.

Alright, now that the weddings over we’re heading out to Amy’s party. This is when I start to get kinda bummed out. It’s not that I don’t want to go to Amy’s party, I definitely do. It’s just that the whole day has been work, work, work not that I didn’t enjoy it but it was still work and now that I finally get to let loose the night’s almost over and so is Amy’s party. It’s Halloween, one of my favorite holiday’s. I always look forward to this time of year because it’s the one time I could count on myself to be creative and make a mind blowing sexy outfit out of nothing and it’s also the one day out of the whole year where I don’t have to hear my husband cry for showing too much skin and this year I don’t even have an outfit. I suck.

Seeing Amy drink out of that big ass goblet definitely brightened my mood. And I love Lauren because she’s just always happy to see me.

Had to take a photo with the only other Asian here.

Scot took his wig and hat off but I’m sure his outfit rocked.

But the best costume tonight was the ferocious lion.

He was so effing cute I couldn’t leave him alone. I kept snuggling with him and making him strike poses with me.

And Ray got so jealous. He wanted to take some photos with the dog too. Look at him come in, “uh, excuse me, would you mind if we took a few photo together?”

Look the dog is so not feeling him at all. Maybe he only likes the ladies.

And I’m still mad at Dondra for taking off her green makeup. She makes the best Shrek’s wife.

Look he totally looks like a stuff animal. I can’t get over it.
