2. I wanted to give an update about the MAD HATTER'S tea party I went to this week. Well, first, I TOTALLY missed the theme. I was thinking it was a cute name to encourage the ladies to wear hats, so I arrived in my cute dress and tea hat. WRONG!!! It was a theme based on Alice in Wonderland. People had on crazy hats. One lady wrapped a bunch of packages and cut a hole in the bottom package to wear it on her head. Another, made a hat with a bunch of computer stuff on it (disks, cables, thumb drive), and another had a bunch of fake tulips on top of her head. So, I had a hat, but was disappointed that I missed the theme. I had low expectation for the food portion of the tea (I thought it was just a buffet at the officer's club), but the food was amazing. It was not like a tea...in fact there wasn't even tea. It was catered by an Italian restaurant here, and it was very good. When I first arrived, most people were standing in small groups talking. It was hard to find people to talk with. However, I did talk to some ladies during dinner and made some connections. There is a group that scrapbooks on Mondays. :) I also spent a while talking with Kristin, who happens to live off base pretty close to me. She has two little boys. She invited me to a Bible study on Tuesdays (one that I was already planning to attend), and then she called me yesterday and invited me to lunch. God is so good in providing me friends so quickly.
