Are you ready for some BUNCO?

How does a homeless woman host bunco? I originally was supposed to host the August meeting, so Jeana was kind enough to switch with me. That turned out to be a true blessing because we moved out of our old house the Friday before that month's bunco on the following Monday!

Then when September rolled around, we were still living in temporary housing AND it was the day before we closed on our new house AND right before school pictures (that I'm responsible for running at our school). Yikes!

But yet again, another sweet friend came to my rescue. Laura volunteered for us to use her house, and she was so sweet to help me get everything set up and then cleaned up afterward. And the rest of the bunco gang indulged me and my football theme! Because I didn't have the time or the kitchen to prepare the meal this time, we had a "tailgating" menu: fajitas from Rosa's!

I did manage to bake a cake!


We went all "Sporty Spice" and wore jerseys or team T-shirts for the night.

We had a great time! I had just three regrets: 1) that everyone couldn't be there; 2) that I didn't get a picture of everyone who was there; and 3) that I forgot to give all the girls their party favors! So KB, if you're reading this, tell your wife that I have a little something for her!

Bunco was great, the food was great, I love my pen and pencils and I am filling my organizer with coupons as I type! ;o)
Your new house looks fabulous! Can't wait to see it in person and I'm thrilled you guys are home for good.
Always love living a burnt orange life vicariously through you. Thanks for sharing with us non-UT grads!
