PJ Game Night

So my friend Carrie and I hosted a PJ Game night at my house to get our Visiting Teaching a fun way this month...and I added some additional ladies just because they're fabulous. Turns out some of the ladies were able to get their visiting teaching done too.

We played my brand-spanking new Apples to Apples game. It was fantastic. Thanks for the suggestions bloggy-friends.

I made Ina Garten's hot chocolate. It is divine. I used the Ghirardeli chocolate bars you find in the baking section.

My gourmet friend Carrie made a cranberry, caramel, pecan tart...from scratch of course. It was heavenly. I made the mango, orange zest Guittard brownies...and Amy brought perfect little Christmas cookies. April supplied salt & vinegar, and Kim brought these adorable mini-bread bowl with spinach dip. I also had some Naughty biscotti, tea biscuits and crab rangoon for snacking. Did I also mention Carrie made fresh cream for the tart - which we also used on the hot chocolate? YUM... mmmm. Everyone brought great company...and light-hearted fun.

We had a rule ...that died out after a few of us danced... that whoever was the last one to place a card down in the game ... they had to do a silly dance. April and Kim were awesome with their silly dancing.

It's nice being around women who aren't pretentious, who are centered and who are fearless. Plus, PJs... comfy cozy... I do hear that those that weren't in PJs... actually sleep in the nude. heheheh
