Last night, some of my friends and family got together to wish me good luck when I leave for Illinois. I now have just under three weeks 'til I go! It was extremely warm (99 degrees) when the party started, which allowed the sweat to flow freely :)
First I want to thank my good friends Mark and Ashley, and Rich and Andrea who hosted my party:
Mark and Ashley
Rich and Andrea
Many, many thanks to these two couples for all their efforts in planning and preparing my party!
The cake was made by Ashley and Heather and I think that it turned out quite well!
The food (hot dogs, hamburgs, potato and macaroni salad, veggies and dip, chips, fruit, ice cream bars, cake) was delicious and enjoyed by all
My sister Heidi set up a station for people to sign a guestbook and take a card with all my information.
I enjoyed spending time with family and friends, it was a wonderful evening!
