Olympic Gymnastics Blogger Party

Last night, I invited over a few of the Columbus bloggers that I'd hung out with before to watch the All-Around Gymnastics finals.  The girls showed up around 8:00 PM and stuck around until after midnight!  Thank god I took today off of work because I'm not sure I would have been able to get out of bed on time to leave for work at 7:00 AM.  Even though I only hang out with some of these girls a few times a year, it's always a good time and filled with lots of outrageous stories and laughter.

Red, white, and blue balloons outside our house

The "GO USA" banner was my arts & crafts project of the week

Lots of delicious food especially the Olympic rings fruit pizza Lindsey brought

I love a good theme party and nothing is better than red, white, and blue for the Olympics (with sangria of course)

Kerri Strug even made a guest apperance

Magnificent Seven circa 1996 (yes, we're wearing my race medals)

Another group shot

Love this one!

Such a fun night!  For me, a sucessful party or get together is determined by how many pictures I take.  If I'm having a great time, I usually forget to take pics or don't have time.  I'd say based on the few pictures I took last night, it was a success!  Thanks for coming Emily, Alicia, Brittany, Holly, Lindsey, and Lindsey!
