A few weeks ago I invited a few friends over.
I asked them to bring...
We all brought things we would like to sell, and we all bought things others had. And let me tell you...there was great stuff! If it fit in your trunk...you could bring it. And there were choices galore...new purses, new clothing (Chicos), jewelry, oval three tiered antique table, party sized drink decanter...like a very eclectic indoor estate sale.
After we shared ice cold mint-limeade (I'll post the recipe below, good stuff), italian creme cake, warm chocolate chip cookies...ok, I'll stop. There was fresh fruit to be figure friendly, unfortunately I think we added fresh strawberries and grapes on top of our non-figure friendly delights ;p. (Yes, we girls did just want to have fun!)
And then the real giggles started, a fresh take on a white elephant exchange (involved something like truth or dare ;p). I will tell you, I took many other photos - but if you have ever seen a pic of someone laughing so hard they look contorted and not so attractive...enough said. So girls, I will protect you the best I can.
We are definitely doing this party again...we may have just started an excuse to get together (frequently)...and come home with more junk than we left with!
....and the recipe I promised...
2 liters of chilled diet Sprite
6 large limes squeezed - allow some of the slices to float in the container
1/3 cup mint leaves
Easy, simple, deliciously refreshing (and pretty, too)!
