PR people know how to party. Or at least the PR people at Edelman Atlanta do. Our annual holiday soiree was a few short weeks ago, and it was quite the night out. Everyone got dressed up (Tim tried on five different outfits before making a decision), brought their dates and sipped on cocktails at the start of the evening, but by the end of the night we were all on the dance floor dancing to "Baby's got back" and learning the "Teach me how to dougie" dance. I haven't laughed so hard in a long time. It was a wonderful thing to get a group of type A professionals out of the office and into a room together. Just add liquor and a DJ and we had the ultimate dance party - soul train, dance offs, circle formations, hair flipping, whatever, we did it. Once the official party ended, the group needed more so we relocated to a bar in the highlands and made it home in the wee hours of the night. Thank goodness for the late start on the Friday morning after, I needed the extra sleep to recover!

Tomeka was the best dressed (in my opinion) - she's an AU grad :)

Timmy hearts Abby and Abby hearts Timmy, although we missed Dustin very much!
I am a Midwestern girl turned Southern who keeps busy with a career in PR. Mid-twenties, I just bought a house in Atlanta with my boyfriend Tim. The house is our labor of love. But, needless to say, we always find plenty of time for fun.
This blog is our story about balancing it all while making the most of our houseof20something.
