Friday night I rushed home from a very busy workday to attend our church's Christmas party. It's always a chili cook-off, and this year I was a judge.

|We're a crack team of judges!|
That task necessitated tasting no fewer than seventeen chilis!
It ended up being a very long night, because I'd also volunteered to head up clean-up afterwards, and that place was a disaster after the party. We didn't finish up until midnight.
The very next night we had to drive all the way to Baton Rouge for David's work party. His employer has offices in Baton Rouge and New Orleans, and they alternate years with location hosts, so off to the capitol we went. First we voted in the Louisiana run-off elections, making us the best-dressed couple to vote.

I always lean a little conservative for work parties, obviously, and found this year's dress at the Salvation Army. It's a little glittery, so it's party material, but it's not too short and, with a scoop neck and long sleeves, is pretty covered up.
How's your party schedule this Christmas?
