It was a wonderful success! I had so much fun...! I'm so glad that Amanda didn't get upset that we had "broken" into her backyard to fix things up...! *laughs* That would have been NOT good if her neighbors were wondering what we were doing and call the cops on us! *laughs!*
Brandy [Amanda's co-worker] was the one who was able to get her way for a time by asking her to go to the school with her [Amanda's a teacher] to do some school related whatevers...and so that gave us some time to go to her house and decorate...we decorated her backyard in a lot of Christmas lights and cleaned her chairs so we had somewhere to sit...we took some sidewalk chalk and made a dance floor...and waited. My wonderful sister did a lot of the cooking and baking...along with other's who brought other awesome tasting food.
|My sister made the yummy cookies...Allie made the Oahu fruit tray and the traditional jello for the housewarming!|
|Oh! This bread was AMAZING! My sister found it on PINTEREST! And did her own version of it...and oh my goodness...it was amazing good!!|
|Lots of yummy food...we're just waiting for Amanda to arrive!|
The company was a lot of fun. The food was amazing good! The games kept us laughing non-stop...oh goodness...[The Psychiatrist is the funniest game EVER!!!]. We all found out that since Amanda had moved her she literally only had ONE fork...only one of anything...can you imagine cooking with the limited utensils?! Oh goodness! *laughs* So it was fun watching her open her housewarming presents.
I know what it's like to be away from home, away from everything you were comfortable with and from everyone you know. I know what it's like to step in a place were you know no one and you don't understand that different culture and way of life in the new place. It's a horrible feeling of homelessness. I hope Amanda starts feeling at home here. I love it here...and I think that Amanda is a great friend. I'm glad that I met everyone. And I'm glad that her party was a success.
