Double Post Day! Happy Hour Time!

So I'm hosting a Fall Happy Hour at my house this Friday for my work friends and I'm super excited about it! I LOVE hostessing and entertaining!

Here's what's on the menu so far:

*Buffalo Chicken Dip with Chips
*Veggie Tray with Ranch
*Fruit Salad - grapes, bananas, watermelon, strawberries, blueberries
*Pasta Salad- pasta, balsamic vinagrette, celery, olives, tomatoes
*Spinach Dip in Bread Bowl with pieces of bread to dip
*Cucumber Cream Cheese bites (it's a piece of pumpernickel bread with this italian seasoning/cream cheese mix on top with one slice of delish)
*Hummus and Pita Bread
*Possible Deviled Eggs if I have enough room in the fridge
*Bowls of Mixed Nuts
*Tzatsiki Sauce with pretzel chips
*Pumpkin Bread
*Brownies for dessert (possibly cupcakes too)
*Beer, Wine, and a non-alcoholic punch made with sprite and some different fruit juices

I'm so excited!! I'm going to be cooking a lot of this on Thursday night and I actually took a half day on Friday to go home and get it all ready before they come over right after school!

Mmmm it's going to be soo good!! :)

Whoa. I thought we were making dinner Thursday? And isn't that A LOT of food? My goodness!

Also I thought you were visiting D this weekend? I'm so confused!

Yea, you're right! I'm cooking/preparing a lot of it after Grey's/dinner with you guys when I get home (crazy I know) and then I have a half day on Friday so I can get more done then too.

And yes, once again crazy, I am going to Dan's this weekend. So I'm kicking everyone out and cleaning up no later than 8:30 or so so I can be on the road to VA by 9pm. Again, crazy I know. I'm excited about it all though, this is the kind of stress I enjoy! :)
