Nothing Fancy

My mom's family has had their fare share of crap thrown at them through the years. I used to LOVE going to family parties -- the family was just a lot of fun. Teasing, jokes, stuff like that. I always picked-out special outfits to wear (since I was the only girl for a fairly long time -- my favorite aunt Ruth would always tell me how cute I was).

Now, that parties don't seem to come as freely. It's a bit o' work to get everyone together, but I must admit we still have a pretty dang good time. HOWEVER, people seem to feel like they have to pull-off a gourmet meal, or have some big deali-o, but I think we have finally learned our lesson -- that it's the people and a bag of clearance M&M's that make a party -- not the fancy planning.

I think it's that way with most parties. I have found that I love to get together with my girlfriends, but I have totally lost the pressure of feeling like I need to invite everyone and their dog (I can't have a good time if there are too many people at a party -- call me crazy), and I can have it potluck and people can bring bagel bites for all I care. :)

Anyway, just a little something I learned....
