I was so glad to see my bloggy friends Becky @ Week99er, Billie @ The Mixing Bowl, & Betsy @ The Everyday Warrior last week. Our gathering just reminded me how we are just now getting over the busy-ness of the holidays & getting into the full swing of settling into 2017, & how the Michigan winter cold & short dark days have worn on me. It’s just been too long since I have seen all 3 girls.

Becky treated us to this delicious gluten-free chocolate cake with strawberry filling, specially-made Fifty Shades white wine, & goodie bags filled with a shirt, chapstick, a little clutch pouch purse, & the Fifty Shades Darker book.

We had fun laughing during the Fifty Shades of Gray DVD & we wondered along how the new Fifty Shades Darker will be when it comes out on Valentine’s Day.

This is a great time just to catch up with your friends at a simple & fun home party! I’m challenging myself now to have one to catch up with everyone more often in real life….not just scrolling though social media.
