I wanted to share a couple of pictures from my annual Girlfriend Charity Party from last night.
I do a party every year and invite all my girlfriends to come. Everyone brings a beautiful grab bag gift where the proceeds from buying this gift go to a charity. I am always amazed each year on all the beautiful gifts everyone finds that are not only amazing gifts to receive but they give back to wonderful charities.
I have been doing this party for many years and each year I look so forward to gathering my best buds together and sharing a evening of fun, good food and drink and most of all sharing our love for each other. In this world it is so nice to be able to be blessed with the wonderful gift of friendship.
I have known most of these ladies for almost all my adult life and I feel so blessed to call each of them friend. They are a special loving and caring group of women.
This year was really special for me too because both my daughters were able to come to the party and invite their best buds to join us. It was fun to have my friends and thiers all enjoying each other's company.
|We always have the best appetizers. Everyone brings their favorite appetizer to share.|
|We play games and laugh and just have a great time. Everyone wears their favorite Christmas PJ's. You need to be comfy to have fun and eat and eat and eat some more.|
|These are a couple of my best buds. Val won the contest for cutest pj's with her Cat in The Hat Christmas Pj's. They were too cute.|
Now I wanted to annouce the winners of the Give Away.
Let me start by saying I loved, no LOVED reading all your loving acts of kindness. They were all so beautiful and heart warming. It is amazing all the beautiful souls out there in blogland that take the time to care so deeply for others. I really loved reading all the stories.
I put all the names into a hat and picked them out. I was so touched by all your stories I could not stand it so I ordered a few more of the junk totes to bling up so I could give more away. That is my act of kindness to all of you. So the talented Amy sent me out some more so I could have more to give away. When they arrive I will bling them up and get them out to all of you that got your names picked.
Thanks to each and everyone of you for sharing your beautiful acts of kindness. I wish I could have given each and everyone of you a tote. You are all loving caring people and deserve to win. So to the 9 lucky ones below please send me your mailing address and email to my email below.
