Party. What social gathering rocked your socks off in 2010? Describe the people, music, food, drink, clothes, shenanigans. (Author: Shauna Reid)
I love to party. I love to pretend I am a rockstar. I really love this prompt. Even though it is hard to pinpoint THE party of 2010.
There was the 10 day long party celebrating the birth of me. That was fabulous. So many different events and so many friends to show they loved me. From hitting up First Thursday downtown and soaking up the art and fashion and wine and jazz, to the road trip to Edmonton, to a night of Punk Rock Bingo, and finally ending with a surprise birthday party thrown for me from the girl I have adopted as my soul sister.
Speaking of that girl, she married her other best friend this year. And I was part of that special day and all the preparations and parties leading up to it. Her stagette was filled with yummy sangria and a quick pole dancing lesson. Her shower was held over a tea party where dress code demanded hats and gloves. Her actual wedding day was non-stop laughs and filled with love.
Halloween was an amazing party weekend too. First up was my childhood friend's stag. Where I witnessed first hand how mean boys are to each other on stags. The next day, I switched up costumes and learned how to two step the night away at the local country bar. And the following week, I celebrated my childhood friend's union with a beautiful woman who I am excited to have as part of my life now too.
This weekend is their housewarming party and dress code demands the tacky Christmas sweater. I'm super stoked! Last night I worked on my sweater and remembered how much I love my hot glue gun to really jazz things up! I hope I win a prize or at least win at pictionary!
A year of celebrating. A perfect prompt to remember that 2010 was mostly sparkler awesome with only a few fizzled fire works. I also realize that I barely described the sights, sounds, etc. that this prompt called for....but my blog, my way.
