'Tis the Season - NEAWP Holiday Meeting

Please pardon the silence... we've been a little busy in NEAWP world. Yes, Colin Cowie came to Austin and we all (barely) survived the "Chic in the Heart of Texas" conference. It was awesome and thanks to everyone who came, contributed and made it happen!!

More conference posts to come, but if you didn't catch the Colin Cowie party pics, check out these fabulous shots taken by Anthology Photography over on the BZ events blog. Thank you sooooo much to Laura for capturing this awesome evening!!

The NEAWP December meeting was our second annual gift exchange. It was a beautiful and festive meeting hosted by the AT&T Conference Center (thank you, Amanda + team!) with lovely decor by the fabulous Premiere Party Central team. Chris Bell and his Belltower Trio entertained us with sounds of the season while we enjoyed a delicious lunch and some well-deserved down time!

Thanks to everyone who brought donations for Coats for Kids and to Barbara for dropping them off!

Amy's question to the group -- what are you thankful for this year?

Some of the answers:

* That we survived 2009...

* NEAWP (awww... thanks, John John!)

* New baby nephews + healthy twins (congrats, Dawn!)

* Being involved with great charities -- Glimmer of Hope, Meals on Wheels, etc.

* Completing a marathon (guess who?!)

And so many more! We are a thankful bunch :)

Our yummy lunch -- very festive!

We can't get enough of our favorite Delysia Chocolates!! These make a great holiday gift or the perfect no-cook addition to your dessert displays. Check out their yummy holiday flavors.

Happy Holidays to everyone! Enjoy the break and we'll see you in January.

Remember to check the website for meeting notices. No more Evite!
