Flashing lights...lights...lights

My mom loved awards shows. WE loved award shows. We watched them all. TOGETHER. We would make food. Fill out ballots. Watch the ceremonies. Cry at the speeches...and the in memoriam clips. Laugh at the jokes. Have a great time.

Last night I gathered some friends over for an Oscar Party. I made BBQ pulled pork in my crockpot for sandwiches. Made a delicious spinach artichoke dip (Q is a super fan). Put together some crab wontons with homemade sweet and sour sauce. and had Emily supply the items needed for build your own ice cream sundae.

We all sat around and talked, watched the Oscars, and ate some delicious food (yeah, me!)

I was satisfied with all the winners, was thoroughly entertained with the dance numbers, laughed heartily at the hosts, and loved NPH and his opening number.

It was a fantastic night! My mom would have loved it.

P.s. the only bad part of the evening...
When you are taking something out of the over, try not to rest the top of your hand of the top of the oven....ouch!!

I loved watching awards show with you and your mom. Loved the ballots too. Oh and the eye rolls when someone was talking too much was pretty good as well!

My Oscar party was not so exciting! I'm glad you had a great time with good friends and good food. Good job initiating activity. ;)
