One of my favorite party events...the oscars! every year for the past 7-8 years (can't quite remember, I know i missed one year when I was in Hawaii, but we held a mini-oscars at Jenny's :) I throw an Oscars party. I always find a fabulous dress (either old bridesmaid or great find from goodwill, etc) and go all out with the snacks, booze, prizes and ballots. It's a lot of fun and over the years, I've managed to get a few of my friends to dress up with me :)
This year, Maggie was in town and graciously offered to host at her swank condo (with the really big TV). It was very successful and she was a fabulous co-hostess.
Queen of the kitchen - but don't worry, I helped clean up!
