Prompt: Party. What social gathering rocked your socks off in 2010? Describe the people, music, food, drink, clothes, shenanigans.
When I thought of this post, I started thinking, I don’t really go “out.” My favorite social gatherings involve my family and the game Monopoly which we are all addicted to. We have “house rules” and winning the game is the ultimate victory in my household. We even developed a “game board” which is a large poster size post-it note that sticks to the wall and we had a “Home” section for my family and a “Visitors” section for our friends and family that stop by. Over the summer, when I was on vacation, we would often play Monopoly until 4 or 5 in the morning! In 2011, I’d like to build on that.
My favorite game is Taboo, and I would love to play that with a group of our friends. We also like to play records, and I’d love to host a dinner party or two with good music (I’ve always secretly wanted to learn to DJ).
In 2011, my best friend and I are going to work on a “Girl Conference,” which will be a big social/professional gathering for women that we know to reflect, set goals and have fun. If you’re in the Chicagoland Area, we’ll tell you all about it!
