The Christmas Parties

Party, party, party. This time of year, I meet myself coming and going to Christmas parties. I don't even try to buy an outfit for each one. How many this year? Let's add them up:

1. Companies I work for = 2
2. Hubs company party = 1
3. Dinner Club party = 1
4. Neighborhood parties = 2
5. Husband's boss's party = 1
6. work associates parties = 2

I'm coming up with 9. I am only counting the ones I am actually going to, just in case you were wondering.

This Saturday night was the hubbies work party. It was held at a large hotel in downtown Houston. Its a large company. So large, there were 3 huge buffets, a casino, comedy clubs, acrobats, gospel singers and HUEY LEWIS AND THE NEWS!!

I hate taking pics with my phone but its all I had. Huey ended up walking over to my side of the stage, and he looked at me and smiled. HE LOOKED AT ME AND SMILED! Even the lady in front of me turned around and said, "He looked right at you!!"

That's because my hair looked like this:

How could Huey NOT have picked me out of the crowd with my ethereal crown of gossamer strands??? Besides, the man has YEARS on me people!! I am YOUNG in his eyes. I believe he is 58 years old.

He cannot carry a tune in a bucket but the man is a great entertainer. He was funny and involved the audience. He really seemed to be having a good time. We were all singing along to every tune. He was a hit machine in his time, and I knew them all.

This picture is from the bar as I went back for my 2nd (or was it 3rd??) cosmo. Must have been third cuz Huey only got better and better as the evening went on....And, I didn't even notice my stiletto heels mutilating my toes anymore! Vodka is a wonderful thing.


  • Fun FUN! My party is this week and hubs' party is next week but we have no Huey Lewis. That's awesome.

    p.s. vodka is always good for what ails you ;)

  • Oh my gosh! I was about to ask if you were at the same hotel I was by the description (intercontinental), but I would have so KNOWN if Huey was at ours. There was a huge party next to ours with a band and great music, and I sooo wanted to dance but ours was casino and no one danced. Blah. Got my hair 'done up too...too bad there was no Huey to appreciate it. HA!

  • Now that I think of it, I have NEVER gone to a Christmas party! I think Floridians are too laid back for that jazz. Kind of a shame, I rarely get reasons to dress up.

  • And how many holiday parties did I get invited to? NONE.

    If I were skinnier and blond, I'd go as your double.
