Hello Everyone. Happy Sunday.
I had my annual Girlfriend Charity Christmas Party last night and here are some pictures and a fun surprise to share with you.
Let me start by saying I have the greatest group of bff's ever. I host this party each year to celebrate our love and friendship.
My daughters now as young adult women are part of the party and invite their special bff's to come. It is fun that they want to be part of this wonderful tradition.
Now on to my surprise.
Not sure about you guys but I hate being surprised. I just have never liked it. My hubby Terry knows better usually not to surprise me with anything. Nope just do not like it.
Well that Man pulled off a good one last night!
I know a lot of you know Diana from Nana Diana Takes A Break Blog. I have known Diana for the past few years and we have become very good friends. Diana lives about 4 hours north of where I live in the Chicago burbs. Diana has a beautiful home in Green Bay Wisconsin. We are always saying let's find a half way point and a day to meet up. Like with most well intentioned plans we never seemed to come up with a day for a meet up. That all got remedied with Terry surprising me and having Diana come in for the party.
Here are some highlights of the party. I promise I will not bore you with a lot of pictures.

|This is my fun friend Pat trying out her spa gift! Pat was feeling her Zen with her new spa items.|
