Party and Vacation

Well, all in all we had seven people over, and I’m pretty sure we all had a good time. The party was supposed to start around 9, with the exception of two friends showing up around 7:30 instead. Any guesses on when the first guest popped in? 6:30. We were still washing dishes! Hahah, the next guests showed up at about 7:30, and another shortly afterwards. So we told the last guy that he might as well come.

The night was fun in general, even though I never did have any time to really get ready! We all had a blast, we played the game of things, and one of the girls had to leave. So afterwards we all moved into the living room and played some Taboo. Of course this all happened while we ate and drank. The evening ended around 2 in the morning, and everyone made it home safe, sound and legally since we had designated drivers.

So, what did this mean for day one of the boyfriend’s week off? It was pretty much wrote off. I went to a boudoir shoot with two of the girls from the party, we had a lovely model! Spectacular to work with. I also got to take a few pictures of a local musician, he has an amazing voice. I actually got picked up and brought to the location of the shoot by a girl who I know, but not well. Remember, it’s tough for me to make friends! Haha, but she’s really sweet and nice. After the shoot, she brought me back and we just sat in her car and talked for a while. It was nice, and she said that next time she came to a party, she would probably spend the night so that she could drink a little more with us. Also, she said she wanted to hang out again sometime. Good news! We did this before, but we never ended up talking until our mutual friend brought us together again, so I guess we’ll see what happens. I really would enjoy a female friend to have around (closer than the three hour drive that I currently have between myself and my only female friend!).

Then I came home and slept! I never ended up sick or anything, just tired. Really, really tired. This meant that there was no cleaning today. I do feel a little guilty, but I guess I’ll have to make up for that tomorrow. I may actually go over and organize the desk/office area tonight if I get ambitious. Luckily, we tidied the whole place up pre-party, so it’s not like there’s a lot to make up in the living quarters.

Off I go! Time to do… something at least.

Makeup and hair test!

Tonight I decided to try out some ideas on hair and makeup for tomorrow night’s semi-formal get-together.
All in all, I must say I’m pretty pleased with what I see there.
I did a blue smokey eye, and a curly up-do.
I just bought the shirt from Walmart tonight, and I must say I am super-pleased. It is really comfortable while still looking classy enough for a little semi.
I need to add some accessories, maybe some arm bands and probably silver earrings to match the chain on the shirt.
While I was out, I also bought Taboo, some glasses and a few other things too. I’ll try to take a few seconds out of tomorrow’s prepping to take pictures!

Check me out on instagram if you want to see them where they’ll come out first @3toa10life!

Wish me luck!

There’s a party in my future.

This may not be considered really upgrading your life to some, but to me… it’s a pretty big step.
My bff will be coming down to town for a weekend, and last time she was here we had a little gathering with friends, drinks and games. It was a blast! You see, I am so.friggin.shy. So much so, that I don’t have many friends. So I’m inviting the friends that I do have, plus some of the friends that my bff has down here, and having another party. This one a little larger. We have 5 people confirmed, with the potential for 11 or so. I think if I made it up to six or seven people that would be fantastic, lol.
I love the thought of entertaining, but usually in this house it consists of having two guys over and them playing video games with my boyfriend all night long.
First I need to clean the house, then I’m going to pick up some new glasses for the drinks, followed by maybe another new board game. Like taboo or something. We currently have the game of things, and I strongly recommend it!
The party is only starting around 9 or so because the kids will be asleep in bed at that time. There shouldn’t be so much planning involved in this, because it is such a small group, but we have so much to celebrate! Today is my 7th anniversary, my bff just found out she got the apartment she wanted!
I think to me, this party or at least all parties I’m hosting in general will help me out. I gain confidence, I meet new people. It’s just a really fun time to sit down and unwind with friends! Everyone can use more of that. So Saturday’s post will likely include the prep and party coverage!

I’ll give you guys updates on what I’m buying through instagram so follow me @3toa10life on instagram!

What are your favorite party games?

Wish me luck!
