student spouse christmas party

{christmas in the city 2010}

Here is it! The picture you have all been waiting for! The Student Spouses Christmas Party (Christmas in the City) photo! Last Wednesday night 35 student spouses got together to celebrate Christmas. Meredith, my co-chair and I had a BLAST planning this party. Our event was held at a downtown loft in a room called the chandelier room. And as you may have guessed it had two huge chandeliers imported from Italy. OH MAN! I wanted to take them home with me.  had a crazy hat theme, if you couldn't tell, hot chocolate grown up style (these are called ski lifts see below), a photo booth, speed gaming and door prizes. 

I have been honored to spend almost the last year being the Student Spouse Representative with Meredith. We have been able to really dream up any social out little hearts desire and run with it thanks to our amazing leaders.  It has been so much fun to create these events and see friendships created out of them. And it is so great to have a "second family" here to go through pilot training with.
