As I said I took Friday off and I am SO glad I did because as it is we were up until 2:30 AM Friday night working on stuff for the party. I can't imagine how late we would have been up if I hadn't been able to work on things during the day.
I spent most of Friday shopping for all of the food and grabbing a few last minute things for decor, as well as cleaning. I also stopped by Ross and found some new skinny jeans which I adore! They are so comfy and cute!
Adam worked on the lights on the house, and here is my sad attempt to get a picture of them, it is so hard to get a good picture of Christmas lights!
Saturday I slept in a little after very carefully calculating how much time I thought I would need to get everything done. I just knew if I tried to go through the whole day and evening on 4 hours of sleep I was going to be a very unhappy camper. I felt much better after getting a decent amount of rest and did the rest of the cleaning, finishing touches of decorating, and finished making the food.

Finally everything was ready and people started to arrive! We ate tons of food and talked and saw people we hadn't seen in ages, such a lovely time!
I got these super cute towels and stuff as hostess gifts.
My BFF and I stayed up late talking and eating cheesecake which was fabulous! After she left it was time for bed but it took me a while to get to sleep, I was just so keyed up from the party!
Sunday was a really lazy day, we went to Chili's for lunch and shopped a little, then came home and watched Christmas movies and ate leftovers.

It was wonderful, and now I need another weekend to recover from my weekend.
