It is going to be a crazy week ahead for my schedule and I don’t know if I am going to be mentally, physically or emotional prepared for all that is chalked up on the calendar. Starting Wednesday, I have 5 straight nights booked and I can only hope I have enough energy for all of them.
Day 1: after work meeting followed by dinner with a major business partner
Day 2: a going away fete for my best friend Beth
Day 3: Beth’s last day at work (insert sobbing) and my sister’s 2nd Annual Christmas Party
Day 4: Ryan’s company holiday party
Day 5: My niece Makenzie’s 4th birthday party at Chuck E Cheese
(2011 Christmas Party: games / wine / friends / delicious food / holiday cheer)
If Gina’s Christmas Party it is anything like last year, I am guessing that we will drink entirely too many bottles of wine, get ultra-competitive over some board games and laugh into the wee hours of the evening.

Saturday is my husband’s company party and I am still unsure what I will be wearing. I was set on this dress from BCBG but it is no longer available. I loved the idea of the emerald green dress mixed with my gold corso como pumps and gold accessories but now I am back to the drawing board.

My niece Makenzie turns 4 here in a couple weeks but we are celebrating early at Chuck E Cheese. A few games of ski ball, a slice of pizza and a handful of rambunctious children will surely make for a fun Sunday.

And this girl here… my bestest friend is departing from the company we have worked at together for 5 1/2 years. I can still remember the outfit I was wearing when I met Beth, one of the first times we hung out (it was the lacrosse game on July 4th) and the thousands of memories we have made along the way. I think a part of me is leaving the company too on Friday.
