First annual game night

lLast night Mat and i hosted the first annual game night at our new home. We don't have a dining room table yet but we all still gathered around our coffee table and had a great night playing games for hours!

I planned the night with a Mexican fiesta theme. I made my mando deluxe nachos and some tacitoes, Linnea's seven layer dip and had tortilla chips. We made margaritas and had Corona for the guys. To finish it up i had a margarita cake for dessert. it tasted pretty much like an orange pudding cake, pretty yummy! everyone seemed to love everything so we didn't have any left overs except for some dip that i polished off today!

We started the game fun off with a rousing game of apples to apples. probably the all time best game for groups. we could seriously play it for hours. We stopped our selves before we did and played a few others. Scene it, loaded questions, channel surfing (which got pretty competitive and we had to end the game quickly)and our made up cranium version of Pictionary.

over all i think the night went well. the only thing that disappointed me the most is that the friends who i would have thought would have enjoyed the game night the most weren't able to make it due to other plans. i hope that if i make this a monthly on going thing all of my friend will at least be able to make it to one game night! Our next we have decided to make a Jamaican themed night... think Jamaican jerk chicken, red stripe beer, and reggae music!
