    Diary of a Non-Cook(ie) Party

    Another December, another yearly tradition. I introduced you to our Cookie Party tradition in 2016, but Lil and I have been attending it for over two decades. It’s been going on for three to four decades, from what I’m told. So, it shouldn’t be a surprise that it happened again this year.  I wanted to make something, but the party landed on a very busy weekend. The night before, the Guidette and I hosted our holiday party. I knew we’d be up late and tired from all the shenannegins of throwing a party. To be fair, I didn’t do much, she did most of it. I was just there co-hosting,…

    Rose & Thorn [29]

    301st post, whaaaaaat?!? Rose: Tie between L’s first kid’s fun run & the cookie party… Thorn: Missing out on some ZZZZZ’s! Nothing really crazy going on this weekend, well anything out of the ordinary December weekend. It was busy, but nothing I couldn’t handle 🙂 FRIDAY Such a busy, busy day at work. Especially since we had a division wide meeting right before we left for our holiday party. I get to plan these events, so I’m always running around making sure everything is ready to go. We hosted the lunch at the same place as last year, but next year I’m switching it up again. I was even able…
