They spent HOW MUCH on Christmas decorations?

Geo and I are going to my Christmas Office party tonight. It starts at 6-ish and ends whenever my CEO feels like it should end. Did I mention the man loves a party?

It's at the Union League in Center City. We are talking jacket and tie for Geo and something more than jeans and a sweatshirt for me.

Oh boy.

I didn't think it would be all that at first. Then one of our execs, who is a member along with his dad, told me that the UL dropped about $30K this year on decorations alone. GULP! I decided to reread the invite.

Butlered hot hors d'ouveres. Top shelf open bar. Sit down dinner with a choice of some kinda chicken caper lemon or a fish called tilapia. Geo got the chicken; I got the fish (we're gonna plate share when no one is looking). More drinks after dinner and whatever else is happening. To top it off, our CEO reserved a block of rooms at the Inn of the League. Needless to say, Nana and Pop-Pop are watching the baby until tomorrow.

This ought to be an interesting night.

Wow. That is a definite love of the party.
I think that may be more time with the office folks than I could handle.

Hope you had fun! We had a big party weekend, too, with three parties in three days. (Can you say "hangover," boys and girls?)

While we didn't go to any parties with $30 grand decorations, at one of our parties, a drunken host knocked over his own Christmas tree. :o)
