Ornament Exchange and A New Blog For You!

Hi loves, Happy Tuesday! I had such a blast last night at my dinner club's ornament exchange, I could not wait to tell you about it. Our dinner club was founded three years ago by girls in my church who wanted to try new Ft Lauderdale restaurants while meeting new people. I am so grateful to dinner club because it allowed me to find a core group of amazing girlfriends in Florida! Here is a picture of one of our larger dinners. 
This year's ornament exchange was held at a new tapas restaurant called M Bar on Las Olas. The girls shared plates like gnocchi mac&cheese with truffles and brussel sprouts sauteed in a soy sauce. Since I am still sick I just ordered a flat bread and these crispy carrots (seen below). They had the best dipping sauce (a mustard aioli).

After eating it was on to exchanging our ornaments! Here are some snapshots of the girls... 

I picked Anne's ornament and it could not have been more perfect as she brought a moustache ornament! If you remember my husband grew a moustache a few months ago and I threw him a "stache bash" birthday (here). He loved the moustache ornament for our tree!  

 Stephanie opened the "mystery" ornament that we found out was mailed down from one of our dinner club members who has since moved to Atlanta! It was the leg lamp from A Christmas Story - perfect! 

Ashley selected Katie's ornaments which were a fork and spoon, so perfect for dinner club! 

Vicky picked Steph's red and green festive ornament! 

And Katie picked my ornament! 

I could not finish this post with out introducing you all to one of my dearest friends and new blogger, Katie (seen in the above picture). Katie blogs over at In The Orange House.  She is hysterically funny, crafty, an amazing cook, and incredibly authentic. Here links to some of my favorite posts from Katie's blog:  

Be sure to head over to In The Orange House and say hello to Katie! 

I hope you all have a wonderful Tuesday!
