I Love Christmas Parties!

This weekend was filled with Christmas parties and fun! Saturday night, we had our 2nd annual gift exchange with my three best friends from elementary school. We went to dinner, exchanged gifts, and had a slumber party. As always, it was a great time and we stayed up late hanging out and talking. Beth, Rachel, Alli, and Me Crazy pic!

Here are a few pics of each of us with our gifts.

I loved all of my gifts. They know me so well. I got a cute dress, a gift certificate to get my nails done, headbands, a bottle of wine, and a 2012 calendar/planner! Thanks girls!
Beth got two books, a purse, "We know we belong to the land" Oklahoma t-shirt, funny napkins, and a bookmark.
Rachel got an OU hoodie, scarf, candle, bottle of wine, calendar/planner, and bangles.
Alli got a bottle of wine, scarf, calendar/planner, "Mrs. Schoonover" hanger, and picture frame.



As you can see, we all must have been pretty good this year! Pinterest was a huge help while Christmas shopping this year. Two of the three girls have a Pinterest and they had a board with things they wanted.....it was a LIFE SAVER! Thanks to Pinterest, I was able to find and order the OK t-shirt and book for Beth. I also ordered the "Mrs. Schoonover" hanger for the soon-to-be bride, Alli. She had that and the "house divided" picture frame pinned on her Pinterest. If you're on the look out for a bridal gift, I highly recommend you order from TwoBroadsDesign on etsy. They were very easy to work, reasonably priced, and very quick.

Friday night we had our annual corny Christmas sweater party! I found a sweet, velvet two piece jumpsuit at the thrift store, complete with a wreath turtleneck from Wal-Mart. Aaron didn't have a sweater so we dug through my dad's closet and borrowed one of his.Alli wore her mom's maternity Christmas dress and I'm not gonna lie, it was pretty cute!
Part of the gift I brought included stick-on beards and mustaches. I bought them for the sole purpose of taking awesome pictures!
Makes me laugh every time.

I love my friends! The two boys in the back are having a little moment...they love each other!

Thanks Brandi and Lance for hosting the party, I had a blast!
