Small Girl, Big Ideas

So, Call Me Maybe?

My husband is a truly lucky guy. He has a wonderful group of friends that have been close with him since grade school. They are pretty inseperable, and despite never living closer than 4 hours to them, they have become my close friends too. We were excited to throw a little get together in Akron, a 'dip' party to be precise. Eveyone brought a different type of dip - we had beer cheese, guacamole, salsa, spinach dip, buffalo chicken dip, some sausage dip, and even a yummy dessert style dip. We exchanged gifts and had a great time. I wore my red dress as it's a really comfortable piece, yet pretty festive too!

  13. I love that you've been able to have them as friends too. As I meet my boyfriend's friends I hope that one day I'll be close with them too. Kind of just brings everything together, you know?

  14. This dip party idea sounds like such a fun idea! And you're lucky the two of you have such a tight knit of friends. I have 4 best friends but it's hard to get us all under the same roof! And lovely little party outfit- those colors are so fun paired together. And I like the little sparkle your belt added. it was the perfect touch of pizzazz :)

  17. A dip party sounds amazing- so many good ones! I love the sparkly bow belt with the red dress, especially with the sparkly nails too. I think you have just convinced me to look for a sparkly belt of my own! Also, as for the ginger cocktail, I totally do not remember what kind of liquor was in it! I do however know that it had pieces of ginger candy on top, which was the perfect finishing touch! :)
    Happy New Year to you!
