January Cure -- Day 7 | Get Your Get-Together Together

Day 7: Thursday,January 10
Assignment: Plan Your Get-Together for the Weekend of February 1-3

I have to say that it is nice to feel like I have some of these covered!

I love having people over but it isn’t something that we doas often as I'd like. At the end of the 2012, I made the commitment tohaving people over more often this year and we already have some fun plans inplace for this month, including:

  • Saturday, January 19: Jurassic Park Movie Night
    I will share more details after the party, including photos. Oh, and I hit the dinosaur jackpot in the dollar section at Target today. Super excited for this one.
  • Monday, January 28: Girls’ Dinner
    Years ago, seven of us had weekly girls’ night dinners on Mondays. We gottogether every Monday. Seriously -- ALL the Mondays! We did this for years and itwas always a highlight of my week. Well, life has since brought a lot of changes -- moves, new jobs, promotions, law school, new relationships, marriages, children -- and ourMonday night dinners fizzled out in the process. There are four of us still livingin the same area and I contacted those ladies last month to ask if we could try toregenerate our Girls’ Dinners and plan to get together for dinner one Monday a month. I offeredto host the first and am having two of the ladies over for dinner at the end ofJanuary. I hope that this will mark a new tradition and that we also think ofways to include the other ladies on occasion. I mean, we have the technology…

As for February, I am doing a 5K mud run with some ladyfriends on February 2. I signed up this past fall in a moment of potentialinsanity and I’m not sure how it will go since I haven’t trained much. Nor do I run. I willreport back after I survive the event. Then, the following weekend, we havefriends visiting so we will be running around town with them and also spendingsome time at our house.  

Back to today’s assignment… Even with all of these plans already in place, I wanted to feel like I was actually doing today’s task so Ie-mailed friends about a dinner and game night in February or March. These arefriends who we get together with every 1-2 months and it is our turn to host. Ithought this was the perfect opportunity to get it on our calendars.

2013 is looking fabulous so far with regards to having friends overto our home! I plan to keep this up for the rest of the year – even if it isjust have another couple over for dinner every few weeks.
