Yes. I know. I said I would never do such a thing. I don't care. I'm trying to save myself $500, so that I can pay off my credit cards :)
Do you remember this dress?
(ewww...my legs look soooo creepy here for some reason?)
(very itty around the waist, which I am currently NOT)
Yep. I'm done with worrying about what people may say. You know why? Because I'll say "weeee weeee" when I put that $500 towards my credit card, and dance all the way to the bank :)
Anyway, I figured that the holidays were over and it would not be hard for me to eat like a bird for a few weeks. Thus, allowing me to fit into said dress.
Our Non-Cooking class last night was filled with very rich, albeit delish, foods. I cleaned each plate. AND.....tonight is Daisy's Annual Cocktail Swap. Yes, Cocktail Swap. Do you remember this from last year? Rather than a "cookie swap", Daisy has a "cocktail swap". This year's theme is "Another Year, Another Cocktail". Last year's cocktail was surely the Dark 'n Stormy. This year I'm looking forward to having another signature cocktail.
I'm taking a punch that the lovely Annie, from Classic Annie, shared with me. Thank you so much, love!! Here, I'll share it with you as well :)
Annie called it "Diane's Punch". I re-named it "Southern Berry Punch". I'm tacky that way, I know. I hope Diane doesn't find out :-o
1 fifth Southern Comfort
1 can frozen limeade concentrate
1 can pineapple juice
1 bottle cranberry juice
2 quarts of champagne or 7-Up (champagne please!)
Serve chilled, and garnish with orange slices
Annie suggested we take everyone's keys at the door. I'm not sure exactly what that means we should expect, but I'm excited :) And to think....we've got multiple other cocktails to try as well!
Daisy has made my favorite Buffalo Chicken Dip. I will, undoubtedly, camp out next to the food table and eat the entire bowl of Buffalo Chicken Dip. This will not help my 8lb weight loss.
I wonder if it's possible to let a dress "out" to allow for 8 additional pounds? I mean, I sure would hate for that Buffalo Chicken Dip to go to waste tonight :-/
