Christmas Parties Round #1

This past weekend, Blake and I attended 3 FABULOUS Christmas parties! It was a whirlwind, but we had a blast! I LOVE to get all dressed up and go this was the perfect weekend :)

Friday night started at my boss' house. The Armstrongs have a gorgeous home and opened it up to all of the reps in our district to celebrate a fantastic year! My boss, Lisa made peppermint martinis...yum yum! I definitely need to learn to make those! and we had some really great food and great fun!

Dru (OKC rep), Lisa (fabulous boss), Rachel (FW rep), me (Dallas rep)
Michelle (Dallas rep), Jessica (Houston rep)

And with spouses....poor Greg (Lisa's hubs) was taking all the pics

After we left the Armstrongs in Keller...we made our way over to Lake Highlands for the annual Gittemeier Christmas Party! Now these people really know how to throw a party! Tons and tons of our friends, beautiful decor, hilarious conversations and yummy drinks and food! Thanks for a great night!! I think we rolled into bed around 2:30-3:00!!!

Here is the beautiful hostess, Tricia

After some much needed sleep, we got ready for the Galderma Casino Night! I really think my company throws one of the BEST Holiday parties, ever! This year it was at the Omni in downtown Fort Worth. There are AMAZING door prizes (we are talking trips, flat screen TVs, etc), blackjack tables, craps tables, loads and loads of food, a photo booth, and one of the best cover bands ever! They go all out and we had a great time!

Thanksgiving 2009

We had a fantastic Turkey Day with the Parkers this year! Thanksgiving might just be my favorite holiday. Its so great to just relax, eat yummy food, visit with family, and watch football! So much fun! I love that we get to celebrate at my parents beautiful lake house. It is so calming and quiet out there. We watched the Cowboys victory, enjoyed the beautiful weather and went to see the Blind Side- if you haven't seen it..go now!!! It is an amazing movie!

Melissa and Ryan with their little munchkin on the way - I can't wait to be an aunt (again) in April!

Wish I gotten a pic of the whole family - we were just too busy enjoying each other to stop and take a group pic.

A visit to the Wine Country

Back in October, Blake and I were invited to join some friends in Napa for a few days of relaxation and vino. Of course we accepted immediately and had the most wonderful trip! Our good friends from Atlanta, Matt and Paige, set up the entire trip. They had all of the reservations made, dinners set up, a limo for the week, etc! We literally just showed up and enjoyed ourselves! We adore the wine country and we adore the Camps - so it was just a perfect trip!

Enjoy the pics!
