Well...it was a hit! The holiday party that I was planning for the Advocates (Spouse) Support Group was on Thursday and was quite a success, even after about a DOZEN last minute cancellations. One of those cancellations happened to be my own husband - so I know that most everyone had really good excuses. He had a huge grand round presentation that he just couldn't finish in time. So he had to bail. He thought I was going to divorce him, but of any group of people at a party, I knew I wouldn't have to explain why he wasn't there. Just say Ground Rounds...and people get it. I was a bit bummed about other people that couldn't come, as I knew how great it was going to be and really wanted them to enjoy it too. The wives work all year trying to support the hubby doctors, and we really needed a nice night to ourselves.
It was at a nice country club and we had butlered hors d'oeuvres, a delicious dinner, OPEN BAR, and desserts. The food was great and the staff was super friendly. Thank you Made-From-Scratch Events! It was a delight to work with you!
I really want to thank some of my friends who knew how important this was to me and supported me through it all! To my friends who watched my kids while I got my hair done, helped me set up, came 9 months pregnant, came without their husbands or brought husbands even if they didn't feel well...it truly means a lot to me! You girls rock!!!
Here are some fun pics! I think everyone had a good time - and it was nice to see people out of "mommy" clothes!!!
