Ok, Fine

Ok, FINE. I concede that there are excellent movies beyond It's a Wonderful Life. I loved a ton of the movies you guys suggested - and I would totally watch them if I had any spare minutes around here - but they are not must haves. It's a Wonderful Life is a must-see. That's all I'm saying.


Last night my BFFs and I had our "Girls Night" Christmas Dinner. Trying to come up with a theme of some sort, we decided to twist the "Ugly Christmas Sweater" party into the "Ugly Dress" dinner. And, because we had a really bad impulse purchase at TJ Maxx about 2 years ago.... we came up with these little numbers:
Yeah, that's really all I have to say about that. We were each to put our own unique twist on them to make them our own, which you can see we all did fantastically. Although I would like to comment on the fact that mine is the shortest by about 4 inches - and I'm the tallest person by about 1 inch. How'd that happen?!

I guess you get what you pay for at TJ Maxx. Especially when silver lame fabric is involved. Yeowzers.

But my BFF hosted our litte dinner party - she's amazing, as usual. Even though she left for a cruise at 6 AM today, she had the whole house decorated and beautiful... how gorgeous is this tablescape?
Yeah, my BFF is pretty amazing... that's all I'm saying.

Much champagne and wine was consumed, which made my group gift all the more entertaining:
Yep, I bought us Twilight Scene It. And then we proceeded to decide that figuring out the board game component was too confusing so we just played the DVD part of the game. Screaming out the answers. Hilarious... and also a wee bit depressing. We are lame, but it's ok - we all liked it.

----------------------------------

How's this for an abrupt change of topic? If you follow me on Twitter you know I got Forever21 order and am trying to decide if I like the items I ordered.
My informal twitter poll said that #2 and #4 were winners and the other 2 should go bye-bye. I really wanted to love the other two... but the tank top is too big and frankly too long - so it's out. And I love the white sweater dress but I guess it's a bit sheer. Oh well.

So now I'm off to get stuff ready for the post office so I can get that done before heading out to the mall for the day. Somebody please remind me next year that working retail for the holidays is always a bad idea. I had forgotten.

Hope everyone is having a fabulous Eve of Christmas Eve!

Love the silver dresses! You guys dressed 'em up well!

And as for the last post about It's a Wonderful Life, I love that movie. My mom claims that it's the greatest movie of all time, so she'd definitely agree with you!

I plan on buying the Twilight Scene game for a little bit of Christmas fun :-) So therefore you are not lame. The ugly dress party looks like a lot of fun, I love parties with themes. Hope you have a Merry Christmas.

Hahaha, those dresses are adorable! You guys made them really fun.

Also, I know you said it's not your house...but I love the saying on your friends wall behind the tree. So cute. I may have to show my mom because we're re-doing our downstairs and she is all into that kind of stuff lately.

Glad you had a good night!

I can't order b/c I look a mess when the stuff actually comes in the mail. I'm impressed you look so cute. I ordered a shirt and skirt from F21, and it looked totally ridiculous when I got it in.

The ugly dress party looks fun!

The silver dresses are a hoot. Great tablescape. Your friend must be one of those organized types ;-).

I actually like the white cowlneck sweater. Too bad it didn't work. I recognize the art deco style bracelet on you w/the lame dress.
