Although I arrived a bit tardy (I had to split between two parties that night, of all things!) but got there in time to taste some of the awesome hors d'oeuvres (bacon wrapped dates! cheese!) and made sure to help Mrs Thimble stuff red velvet mini-cupcakes into our mouths with reckless abandon...
Mmmmmm, tasty little suckers!
It's always a blast to meet up with Weddingbee ladies in real life. When you throw in a dash of holiday cheer and few glasses of wine, well, it's even better!
From left to right, that's Mrs Pug, Mrs Swan, Mrs Lobster and I gigglin' together!
Even the husbands got in on the action, looking sharp and showing their holiday spirit...
We finally managed to get a group shot, although by this point Mrs Bluebell had already left (with good reason- She brought her delicious 5-week-old bambino to the shindig, which is why I have so few photos because I was too busy cooing and aw-ing over him!)
Anyways, here's the shot of us looking pretty normal...
And here's the shot where we all coincidentally burst into carefree, completely spontaneous, totally not-rehearsed, "candid" laughter (except for Swan, who seems to have her own "Blue Steel" agenda, ha!)
Let's see, from left to right, that is Mrs Thimble, Mrs Swan, Mrs Hamster, Mrs Dahlia, Mrs Pug, Mrs Ribbons (who just moved to Brooklyn, holla!), Mrs Lobster and yours truly (Mrs Trailmix)
It was such a fun night, Mr and Mrs Dahlia get mad props for continuing the tradition of stellar food and drink, so thanks and looking forward to the Bee Holiday Party 2011!
