Last night the hubby and I went to my last EVER work Christmas party. It was bittersweet!!
The drive there was an event itself!! We dropped the chicks off with the Hansen clan and took off! We decided to take frontage road to bypass rush hour traffic. As we were flying past everyone I was thinking... "haha, suckers!". That was my first bad! We were cruising along about 3 miles from the last on ramp and the road closes! We had to turn around and drive all the way back. (now who is the sucker! bummer!). On the way back some guy gets behind us and starts following way too close!! The hubbies road rage began flaring, the guy flew around us and slammed on his breaks! We had to swerve to not hit him! Now that got hubbies blood boiling! After we almost got in 2 accidents because of this guy he finally turned, Thank goodness! Now we were Christmas party bound!!
When we got there we first ate dinner, I am not sure who catered it but it was DEL-ISH!! They had some of the best pulled chicken type stuff, and steak! For sides we had a YUMMY green salad, rice, a roll and veggies... mmm! For a 'free for me' meal it was FANTASTIC!! My mouth is watering thinking about it!!
For the activity they had Common Cents Casino Parties come! I have always wanted to learn how to play Craps, so as soon as I finished eating, I hurried to the only Craps table there! The dealers (is that what they are called on the Craps table?) were SO nice. They taught me and the hubby how to play! Hubby was up to almost $10 grand! But with only 15 minuets left to play he bet it all on one roll and lost it!! Thankfully we were only playing for raffle tickets! I am not sure how much I ended up with, but I got a bunch of tickets!
When we finished playing we had a raffle. I put some tickets in a few prizes, not expecting to win anything! I had never won anything at a raffle in my life, so I was just putting tickets where ever! GUESS WHAT!?!? I won! I only got a $25 AMEX gift card and a bag of Reeses minis, but hey, at least I got something! I am not complaining about FREE money!!
The drive home was MUCH less eventful, but was good! I don't think I could have handled much more, I was tired and ready to go home and go to bed!
I didn't think about taking any pics there. I am fairly new to this blogging thing so I was not thinking about posting photos at that time! Sorry, just close your eyes and image it!
It was a blast, and the hubby even enjoyed himself, which does not happen often! So good job Benita for planning such a fun, and delicious night!! I will miss you Logoworks!!

I found this blog that a friend recommended and I love it!! It is dana-made-it.com. This woman is so creative, she makes all sorts of things and gives full instructions on most. Oh, and did I mention its all for free!!
I found a tutorial on her site for a dress that you make out of a mans dress shirt! They were adorable so I had to give it a try! I went home that evening and made KayLee this dress!
It turned out well and was a lot easier then I thought so I made one for Kacie too! The picture of Kacie didn't turn out that well, but you get the idea!!
Not only are they adorable, if I say so myself, but they have sentimental value, since they are Dads shirt !!
You all really need to check out this blog!! So inspirational, haha!!
