Tea Party

Tonight I went to a tea party.  It was for my sister-in-law Erin's 25th birthday.  I thought it was a brilliant idea.  Especially since she suggested dressing up if we wanted to.  You give me the option, and it's pretty much a given that I will. ;)

There was a whole array of herbal teas, as well as apple cider and cocoa.  My mission in Russia turned me into a tea drinker, so I always like trying new flavors.  We sipped our drinks and supped on cucumber and radish sandwiches whilst partaking in most engaging conversation. It was jolly good fun.

Here are a few (unfortunately less than stellar--I still need to figure out some of my camera settings) snapshots of the evening.

Laura's face absolutely cracks me up in this one.  She was in the middle of a conversation when she suddenly realized there would be photographic proof that she wore that dress.
 Heather is telling a funny story. . .if you couldn't tell.
And here I am with my mother-in-law.  I was a little disappointed when I got home and realized I didn't get a picture of my whole outfit.  It was rather fabulous, even if I do say so myself.  I had gloves and a matching purse and everything.
PS Heather decided this picture should be titled Mrs. Nesbitt.
 Here's the birthday girl opening presents.  Happy Birthday toooo yooouu!
 And here's a random picture of our feet.  Because I decided fancy and incredibly impractical footwear should be celebrated on an occasion like this.

Happy Birthday, Erin! Thanks for making it a fun occasion we could share with you!
