December 9: Party

 Today's prompt from Reverb10:

Prompt: Party. What social gathering rocked your socks off in 2010?
Describe the people, music, food, drink, clothes, shenanigans.(This prompt by the lovely Shauna, who hosted an amazing cupcake party and probably wanted an excuse to write about it).

I can't think of anything I did this year that was nearly as fun as Shauna's cupcake party looks, but I did get to host my sister's bachelorette party at my house.  The girls met at my place. I made a pitcher of Pomtinis. Both my sisters raise their eyebrows when I suggested them, but they were quickly guzzled down and praised by a crowd that included several bartenders.  I put out homemade pizza and lots of nibbly things. We barhopped all night and I woke up with a huge hangover. I was wearing a black dress and a white denim jacket and flats, but sometime during the night was convinced to switch shoes with someone wearing a surprisingly comfortable pair of four-inch heels.  Too bad that I gave them back.  I wish I knew what brand they were.  Our designated driver was pregnant so we all got home safely.  The bride charmingly managed to throw up mostly out the door and only got a little vomit in our minivan/party bus. 

By the way, it's my 40th birthday today, though I have to work so it will be a relatively calm one. I'm going on a trip with my husband later in the month to really celebrate.


  1. So cynical re my prompt choice! :P
    Comfortable four inch heels, I never knew such a thing could exist!
    Hope you have a wonderful birthday... calm is good, I reckon :)

  2. Happy 40th Birthday, Jen. It used to be that forty was a milestone into the "older" years, but I truly believe that it is now the new thirty! Enjoy--you're in the prime of your life, and I'm old enough to know, because I'm way past forty!

  3. Happy Birthday! That party sounds like fun!

  4. Have a wonderful birthday, Jen, and a great year to come.

  5. happy birthday jen, like they say like begins again on 40th. have a wonderful birthday.

  6. Happy belated birthday!
