Holiday Parties!

I sometimes dread going to parties.  Even though I appear on the outside to be a very social person and anyone that meets me would categorize me as an extrovert, I definitely have hermit-like tendencies.

When it comes down to the actual leaving the house part, I always want to bag it and stay home in my comfy pajamas and watch a little TV in bed with my husband.

But thank God I don't because nine times out of ten, when I actually drag my sorry bum out the door and go to the party or night out I end up having a blast.  

This is especially true during the holiday season.  I'm already exhausted and anxious with the holiday to-do list and then to get dressed up and make it out in the freezing cold just seems like too much sometimes.  But then you get there and it's warm and yummy and everyone's in a great mood.  And I wonder how I could have wanted to say home instead of coming.

So next time you want to cuddle up on your couch instead of going out to that friend's holiday party, I say put on your best duds and go!


  1. I love it. Especially since it reminds me of the story about how you met your husband!
