Holiday Party

To kick off the holiday season, my girls decided to throw a party. It's happening right now. In my house.You're invited -- pull up a chair!

Normally, Romy and Michele sip tea but, for this grand occasion, they're pulling out all stops. The beverage on tap is Angel's Envy, a Kentucky Straight Bourbon Whiskey, aged in port wine barrels. It's pricey but has a smooth, delicious flavor. Can we get you a glass?

Things could get crazy around here. Are you going to any other holiday parties?


 
 
(P.S., I think Romy looks like Suzanne)
(P.P.S., No sponsorship here; I just like the stuff)

  1. I would love a little sipping glass of that bourbon, thank you! I've got a couple of work parties, some friends are having a party, and we're throwing a NYE party. And off to the theatre tomorrow night! Many opportunities for dressing up!

  3. Ha ha! My husband would love that. Me, I'm a champagne and vodka gal.

    We were planning on a couple of parties but I have an unexpected trip for an illness in the family so I won't be making them. I was getting excited about dressing up...ah well.

  4. I actually do like a good whiskey every now and then, I might toss one back with them!

    No parties for us, too hard with the toddler and all!

  5. Like Suzanne, if you've got either Champagne or a good Polish vodka, I'm yours! Couple of parties planned but not too much debauchery!

  6. So fun! :) Do you collect Barbies, Ally? I don't presently, but they're certainly a love that has stayed with me since childhood and I suspect that if I had the room and budget to do, I might get back into collecting them again one day.

    Lots of fun family events on the docket for us this December, but no mega parties and that suits me just fine, as I've never been the type that feels at home in the midst of such (I'm shy, introverted, like a quiet setting, and can't drink due to medical reasons, so thumping parties and me are a bit like oil and water, lol!).

    I hope that you have a super fun filled holiday season with your girls and loved ones alike.

    1. I'm glad you'll be enjoying the holidays, Jessica. Family events are fun. Time to re-connect to those who've known us the longest.

      I wouldn't say I "collect" Barbies but I own two (these) and wouldn't say no to another. They make me happy -- but, in the back of my mind, I get a little anxious about them because I was taught I'm not allowed to play with girl-things. I half-expect one of my parents to come into my room and scream at me. Hard to shake that sort of stuff...

  7. I'm strictly a beer or wine person ... Got sick once on Canadian Club rye whiskey, celebrating turning drinking age - bleagh ... that was many, many, MANY years ago. I also drink non-alcoholic beer. I am a plebian, I'm afraid :)

    Your girls remind me of my love of doll fashion when I was younger. It's the strangest thing, I had not thought of myself as interested in fashion until I discovered fashion blogs a few years ago. Even then, I couldn't really understand my interest. Certainly to look at me I do not seem like I follow anything to do with fashion. Recently (when the Christmas toy catalogue arrived in the mail) I remembered how much I loved doll fashion, and then also remembered how fascinated I was by the regular catalogue clothing as a young girl. Sounds like I'm not very in touch with my thoughts, but those things were so many years ago I had forgotten about them; my clothing choices became more and more utilitarian and conservative as I got older. I'm enjoying becoming acquainted with this part of myself again, and as I mentioned in a recent comment, I have just started to realize that even if I don't/can't wear certain items in public, you've helped me to consider at least wearing them in private for the sheer enjoyment of it. I'm grateful to you for that!

    1. What a lovely, poignant story! You're experiencing something I did as well -- re-connecting with our earliest childhood desires. In ways that go beyond conscious thought. Our attraction to things can't always be explained.

      Doll fashion for girls (I'm guessing) is about our innate identity and idealization of our desires. Real clothes publicly worn by an adult are completely different: they're social declaration and efforts to fit into a world that isn't always hospitable. For many, clothes are camouflage.

      I'm glad you, like I, am able to play with the concept of fashion. I find it immensely fulfilling.

    2. Yes, to all of what you said. I'm glad you understood my ramblings :)

  8. Mmmm...sounds delicious. Drinks certainly make the holiday stress a bit more manageable.
    Suddenly I want some dolls in my life to have parties with. I do have a birthday coming up!

  10. I've never even heard of that bourbon. I have to say, where alcohol is concerned, I am often swayed by cool names and neat labels. I'll take a glass!
