Everyone loves a Boston girl. This is the story of one Boston girl's adventures in the city, in blogging, and in getting through those crazy 20-something years.

I'm a writer by trade. And by passion. I'm a lover of food, friends, and all things Boston. I listen to music pretty much 24/7 and idolize Martha Stewart. I love my job(s), my life, and this city. Follow me on Twitter! @Susie

party in the u.s.a.


The thing I love about my family is that we’re all about the parties. Anything we can celebrate, we will. And so, my very favorite parties are those that occur around the dinner table with my family, celebrating birthdays, holidays, and more.

I know. I’m an old woman. I’d rather sit around the dinner table at my parents’ house, eating steak and birthday cake and playing board games. And yes, I refer to those occasions as “parties.” What of it? But wait, there is always wine. Lots of wine! And sometimes even martinis. And occasionally even champagne. So, therefore, yes, I believe these events do qualify as parties. Take that.


Other than that, in January 2010, we celebrated We are not Martha’s 2-year anniversary and had a superbly fun party, complete with lots of people, tons of food, a glorious cake, and a full bar. No board games were involved.


But there were super fabulous gift bags:


Happy faces:


And SO SO many of our friends, family, and fellow bloggers. So, yeah I guess that was the party of 2010 for me.

Hopefully 2011 brings many more “parties.” And a whole lot more board games. Bring it ’11.

This post was in response to #reverb10, with prompt: Party. What social gathering rocked your socks off in 2010? Describe the people, music, food, drink, clothes, shenanigans.
