I am one of those people that is really into celebrating birthdays.
I want to do something really fun this year for my birthday. Last year I got the flu and my birthday dinner at my mom's house had to be canceled.
I thought about a couple different options for this year. December birthdays suck for planning birthday events. I really really wanted to get a limo again. On my 30th birthday Mr. R and I and 3 other couples took a winery limo tour. I had almost talked myself into booking it and justifying the $300 cost. (I have had a couple good promotions lately that I've worked on that should earn me about that much in commissions.) But that money should really go towards the cruise.
Then I thought about getting a hotel room near a club so Mr. R and I can go dancing. I LOVE to Dance. But again, after $80 for a room plus food and alcohol, it really adds up. So... I've decided to throw myself a party!!
I'm planning a game night at my house. So my goal is to figure out what games to play, some food to serve, and a couple fun drinks to have while not spending more than $60.
One game I know I want to play is a card game called Pass the Trash. It involves everyone putting in $1 bills and the winner gets to take the whole pile. It's fun because it doesn't cost much and it's exciting for the winner to walk away with a little extra cash.
Hmmm...Do you think I could get anyone to play Mall Madness with me? :)
Anyone have any ideas for some fun appetizers that are easy to eat while playing games?
