The Dierolf's 5th Annual Christmas Party!

Last night marked our 5th Annual Christmas Party! I can't believe we've had five of these parties since Brett and I have been married! I really had no intention of starting an annual holiday party, but it just happened... and I'm so glad it did. It's always fun to have all of our friends get together every year and do the traditional food, white elephant game and group picture.

The white elephant gift exchange is always my favorite. Brett received a can of frosting and I received a "My Little Pony" set. Guess what's going back into the holiday exchange next year? Yeah, we keep all of our horrible gifts for the next year. Haha! There has been this pickle catapult going around since the very beginning. So funny!

My best friend, Jen, and I wore the same outfit... yet opposite! It was totally unplanned too! I wore a red dress with green tights, and she wore a green dress with red tights! I was cracking up. Especially because she's my best friend and we complete each other. It just makes sense, right?

As always, I adore my good friends. One of my biggest new year's resolutions is to only surround myself with the best people. The friends who are the most kind, passionate, and who mutually care about the relationship as much as you do. It's not worth wasting your time on people who don't make an effort back, and I'm definitely realizing this more as I get older. Life is too short to not be with the people who want to be with you and spend time with you! Love the ones who love you back.
