Day 271: Confusing Holiday Party

What an awesome, jam-packed Saturday! I kicked off my morning with 11 miles as part of my half-marathon training group. Even though I’m lightyears from where I used to be, I’m starting to feel really good about my running for the first time in a while. I can’t wait to see what my half marathon in March brings! After my morning run, I headed over to the barn for some much needed horse time. I’ve been unable to ride for a while since my weekends have been so jam-packed, but it was great to get back into the saddle.

Tonight we’re headed to L’s work ‘holiday’ party that’s been pushed a few times due to the ‘snow’ in Atlanta. It’s always fun to get dressed up and meet the folks L talks about at work. Last year they had a casino-themed party that was a lot of fun – especially when I beat L in poker. This year the party is apparently ‘interactive’ themed, so I have no idea what to expect. Imagine my surprise when we walked in on a ‘murder mystery’ theme that involved six of the hundred people at the event. At least the bar was flowing!

This dress was a hand-me-down that never quite fit me right. This past year, I finally bit the bullet and had it altered – boy, am I glad I did! It’s now my favorite cocktail dress! Someone needs to invite me to a wedding or L needs to take me out to dinner STAT.
