“Stock My Bar” Party was a success

Back in Sept when I moved into this apt.  I decided not to have an apt warming party right away, I told my friend Ja that I wanted to wait for spring.  So that I would have some time to get the place together.  I told her how I wanted to find & refurbish a BAR.  Which I did you can see that here.  I came up with the idea that if I found & refurbished a BAR then the apt warming would be a “STOCK MY BAR” party, where instead of housewarming gifts you/people would bring a bottle for the bar GENIUS RIGHT!!

I like to think so…. I mean take a look for your self at the results…

I had my daughter & her best friend(coincidentally another Jamie so now i got 2 of them) go out at 8.30 am on day of party and pick (steal) me some flowers from the neighbors I think they added the finishing touch to the place.  Don’t you agree
