A Night Out

We had my Company Christmas Party last night. I couldn't decide whether I really wanted to go, but I used the occasion as an excuse to get my hair done. I hadn't done anything with my hair since I went to a Jazz game last season (6 months ago?). I think that qualifies me as "low maintenance". (Although I have had my moments.) It turned out good and I didn't end up making any changes to the basic style.
Dennis used the occasion as an excuse to get some dress up clothes. He went to JCPenney's and picked up a NICE jacket for $35!!! He also got a pair of dress shoes and a new shirt. He has to go to award dinners for work pretty often so this stuff will be nice for him to be able to have around.
Here's me in the car, I'm heading off to pick up my man who is at work, again. Have I mentioned he is a workaholic?

I can't hold the phone further away, so you get a closeup. I wore a turtle neck, a sweater, and black dress pants. Last time I went to the party I was cold! No bare arms or legs this year!

And about 45 minutes later it was dark and I picked up this handsome man. A couple of pics cuz it's hard to see in the dark:

We had a nice time, and I even won this cute penguin. It was the centerpiece at our table: He's made out of hat boxes. I have officially, today, started decorating for Christmas. This is it so far. Impressive, huh?

That's my kind of decorating! Easy to put up, easy to take down.
Right on!

whoo hoo! (thats a whistle) You guys looked pretty sharp. I am sooo jealous you got your hair done. One day I am going to actually schedule an appointment and get mine done. It's only been a little over a year. I hope you had a nice time at your party.

How is the tree decorating? Dalton is not worried anymore about Santa coming. Far Far Away Grandma told him that she would make him a new stocking, since we misplaced his, As Dalton would say "isn't that awesome?"
