Party time!

So the party last week was a success! It all happened because Haley and I have had plenty of email conversations about how we need to get together and perhaps the "recovering Continentalites" as she calls them. So enough is enough, and we decided to have a little smoothie party with our old college buddies and I decided to host. We also thought it would be a good idea to invite our friends from outside the Continental realm so we could enhance and expand our circle of friends. As fate would have it, one of my friends (Carona) was having a pizza party that same day and decided we should merge our parties rather than have conflicting parties. As you can imagine, all these people inviting all sorts of people made for quite a large group, and my little living room could hardly keep us contained!

Thanks everyone that came! It was great to see some old faces and meet some new people. We will need to have another one of these soon. Maybe at Haley's place so more people will fit comfortably, huh?

One other tid-bit I wanted to share about the party. We played one of my favorite games. What you do is get everyone a piece of paper and a pen or pencil. On the top, yo write a sentence. You pass the paper to the left, and now you draw a picture of what the sentence says. You fold down the paper so you can no longer see the sentence, and pass it again. Now, you look at the picture and write a sentence of what you think is going on in the picture, then fold down the paper so the picture can't be seen, and continue. Below are some of the best ones from Friday. I almost died laughing.

Thanks for hosting it, Garrett! I think despite the eclectic group of people that it was a success. My roommates enjoyed themselves a lot and Jenny in particular LOVED the picture game we played. Well done.

Next time we'll have it at my place... I know everyone has their own halloween activities going on, but maybe a party mid-november?

PSH. I wish I lived in Utah.

Garrett, you better get those pictures figured out because I was so excited to see them and then wound up severly disappointed when there was nothing there.

Haley Greer said...

Bon, we wish you did too. So tell Brooks to get over his silly school ambitions and come on home! :)

The party was awesome - thanks, Garrett and Haley, for making it happen! I loved the picture-sentence association game - definitely a keeper. And it was great to meet some new people. I'll look forward to the next one!

Thanks for hosting the party, Garrett! I liked it. Your smoothies were tasty, and I am quite a smoothie connoisseur. I hope you can load the pictures soon, because some of those papers were hilarious!

It really was quite the evening! Thanks for hosting and those smoothies and slushies were super duper. I agree with Haley, we should have another party at her house one time soon. I would even consider hosting one after that! :)

Tyler and Cassidy said...

These cartoons are hilarious!! Tyler suggested that we play this game tonight - but I don't think it would be funny if we just passed the papers back and forth ;)

Garrett, I'm so glad you saved the pictures and posted them. They're so funny! The party was a blast, too. Thanks for hosting it and the fab smoothies. Wario rocks!

Bonny said...

hah! those are funny! I can't decide which one is my fav...

musicgirljen said...

Those were awesome! Such a touching story of the goldfish and the duck... And yes, the smoothies were absolutely fabulous. I'm thinking I may have to hire you for my next party.

garrett said...

Glad everyone had a good time! And smoothies are my specialty, so just let me know if you need my services at your next party! ;-) Cas, you should definately get some friends together and play this game. It's one of my all-time favorites!

The party sure was great! I guess just one of the perks of being an EX-continentalite is that we get to have fun stuff like that!!! I love the scanned pictures of the game. Thanks again GWard!!!!!
