Hi..The first Christmas party was a blast..
My slo-pitch team women all got together and went to the community Drugstore Ladies Night. Actually they are having 3 of them and last night was the 2nd one. I used to work at this drugstore..so I'm friends with all the staff.
I had a lighter lunch to compensate for some extra calories but I ate reasonably..had 3 drinks, supper was ham, scalloped potatoes, corn, salad, a ww bun and a tiny piece of strawberry shortcake.
The table was set with lots of take home stuff which included a lined plastic reusable slurpee cup, a christmas ornament, a 3D pop up Christmas card, and a candle holder and some soap. A reusable shopping bag was handed out at the door and it had another compact shopping bag, a calendar with a $10 off coupon for next year.
We played some games and our table won and we each got a pair of earrings :)
Then on to the shopping (yes drinking first then shopping..haha) Our ticket cost $20 and then when we went through the check out we got $20 off our purchase (plus my friend bought my ticket for a Christmas gift :) ) So I bought a gingerbread house cookie jar that was $20 so free, then I bought a few more things. There was a 50/50 draw and other door prizes that I didn't win, but I was happy with my haul..then we finished the night off with a stop at the bar..
When I weighed in this morning I was the same weight as the day before..woohoo
Merry Christmas to everyone and may all your Christmas parties be Merry
