Look what happened now...
Hope your week is going well. I hosted "Girls Movie Night" last night and am moving rather slow today. This time we did actually turn on the TV! #Progress!
No movies, but we did watch the BBC Sherlock season 3. It was awesome! One of the other girls hosts a Thursday Night Horror movie marathon, (this is what my friends are really like, lol) and we were discussing next movie night we will marathon True Blood season 1 and see how that works. She has some teens at her extravaganza and doesn't get to watch a lot of the more "adult" (read sexy/nude) horror stuff. Not that True Blood is all that scary, but it is a wonderful slice of small town southern life- with Vampires thrown in for good measure. #InMyOpinion
Anyway, back to last night...
As you may know from all my whining lately I have been working non stop. I did plan on cooking a lovely buffet dinner, complete with gourmet touches for the ladies. In my mind I envisioned a pretty themed table, fancy garnishes, fresh fruit in some crafted watermelon bowl and other homemade wonders. :o #Perfection for my best buds..
Then, as is often the case, reality sat in
and I knew I was screwed. I didn't have time to go to the market & since Rick had just blown in & then zipped out, THERE WAS NO FOOD IN THE HOUSE!
So what does a smart, career woman do?
She has the bloody thing catered!
Oo la lal #FancySmancy
I went with a sensible sandwich tray from Schlotzskys.
One lady brought cupcakes (from Sam's) and another brought cake. So we had plenty of food!
They were all happy to eat sandwiches and even looked at one of my work projects. (In my attempt to explain why I have been MIA & so lame lately. #FML)
We watched Sherlock and visited and ate some more and laughed and ate some more. lol
Sandwich tray (plus bottle of hot sauce, lol) to feed 5 was $26. + tax approx $30.USD. So it was a great price and for good, fresh sandwiches. (Not to mention more healthy than Pizza.)
They didn't leave until 4:00 a.m. (OH MY GOD!) so I guess they had fun?
I'm headed home now for a nap.
Catch you later-
