I'm going to a team supper at my SO's job and possibly going to my office party (even though I'm on leave since july, I've kept in touch with everyone). I'm waiting to see how I'm feeling (contraction-wise and all) before I make up my mind.

We have one this Saturday to go to and I have no clue what I'm wearing. Thinking I'll have to buy something to wear because I have zip as far as dress clothes that will actually fit. I'm going to try and spend as little as possible because after New Years it'll probably never be worn again. I'm not a dress clothes kinda gal

Dh's Squadron Christmas party is coming up on the 15th....have no clue what I'm going to wear yet, but I'm excited about buying a new dress and shoes just for the event=) Other than that....no other parties to attend because I won't have day care.

I have a few but none of them are formal so I'll just wear jeans and a nice top or sweater.

my office always puts on a super fancy party---think like a wedding reception on steroids during the holidays.....everyone wears gowns / suits....that type of thing. I'm just wearing a pant suit that's super streatchy....I love going to the party because it's kinda like a prom for adults....excellent dinner, dancing, amazing prizes....open bar--not that I can enjoy that this year, but oh well. It's still a really fun night out with the hubby.

I think we are having a party at work this Thursday? maybe?
Either way I'm not going, I'll just make them save me food since I work later that day anyways

And we've successfully gotten out of the family christmas party every year for the last like, 4 years. The bratty grandchildren really ruined it for us one year [and they are a year younger than me, not exactly little kids] and we haven't gone since.

We've decided not to go this year. Hubby's work has a HUGE sit down lunch with the whole company, but they don't have high chairs and trying get our plates with two small children is hard. PLUS I'm pregnant this year. THEN there is a much smaller party with only 20ish couples at the guy's house that runs the whole place that night. We aren't going to that this year either. Its a lot of standing for many hours and we just decided we'd skip both this year!

I WOULD have worn black leggings with a tank and cute sweater cardigan over it!

I have one for my work this Saturday but I'm not sure if we are going or not cause we have a SIX HOUR Childbirth class that day (10am-4pm) & then the party is at 6pm and I'm not sure I'll be up to going after the class.

If we do go, it's so not formal (it's at a bowling alley so formal wouldn't be very comfortable), so I'll just wear a a cute sweater & jeans. This will be the first time in 7 years that I'm possibly not going.

thank you jaidynsmum for my siggie!

My work Christmas party is Friday. I don't know what I am going to wear. Possibly just jeans and a cute top. I also have a Christmas party Thursday for a mother's group I belong to, but DD has been really sick this week, and it is probably best if I don't take her out. I'll probably have to miss that one.

We usually try to get together with our friends too, though nothing is exactly planned yet for that.
