NAS: LAST one before the holidays!

Ah! I can't believe it's already the LAST post before our break!  Time sure does fly by, huh?!  Ok, as an early Christmas gift to you all, here is a little something from Morgan and I:


Eeeeeeek!!!! What do you guys think?! WE ARE SO EXCITED FOR THIS!  Please, please email us if this is something you are interested in!  There will be more information to come, so make sure to get on the email list for all the latest deets!

Annnnnd now... here are some of my thoughts on surviving parties/events as a singleton.

Hmm... the first thing that comes to mind: OWN IT.  I mean, we are single... we may be THAT person at the party, but really?  Who cares?!  There are many reasons we LOVE being single, so just try to remember those things when/if people go down the road of asking whyyyyy we are still single.  Maybe come up with a few responses to say when people ask you about your dating life... like what?  Hm, I am not too sure.  Quick things like, "Oh, it's ok! I am really enjoying all the traveling I am doing right now!" or "I love my life right now, and I am trusting the Lord and His timing." or "It's none of your business, ok? Sheesh!"

Ok, maybe not the last one. ;)  But, I think you get me.

Also... if things get awkward, just start asking people about themselves!  People love talking about themselves... their job, their kids, they house. Whatever. It depends on if you know the crowd or not as to how specific you can be, but really, for anyone, turning the convo back to them will keep it going.

Be sure to wear something you feel comfortable in.  There is nothing worse than going to a party, especially if you don't know that many people, wearing something cute, but super uncomfy.  Pick out something that you love, and get some new accessories!  You will already go to that party feeling confident, which will come across in conversation.

Have fun!  Yes, it's nerve-racking to go to these things by ourselves, but it's nothing to get too worked up about.  Enjoy being with your coworkers, family, etc.  Because at some point, when we are in a committed relationship (or community), we may not always be able to attend such things.  So enjoy it! Meet new people! And again, have fun!

What about you??? What are your tips for surviving parties/events as a single person??  Link up below!

And, that's it, ladies, until January 14th!!  I hope that you all have SUCH a wonderful Thanksgiving and Merry, merry Christmas!!!  I will continue to pray for you all.  Please pray for me, too.  Especially today, as I am traveling to SPAIN!!!!!  I am hanging out with my good friend Morgan and her hubby.  It's going to be awesome... and I will be sure to blog about it when I get home.

Don't forget to email us about our girls weekend!!!!

  1. AHH! I figured that video was just going to be about us doing a Google Hangout (that we totally should do to)! And it's somewhere I can drive and don't have to spend $500 to fly!! Next summer is my summer of travel so might as well add another trip to my list :)

    Have fun in Spain! Can't wait to hear all about it!

    We had similar tips for attending events which makes me feel good that I'm on the same page as others :)

  4. Great ideas, Jen! And not just about surviving the holidays! Jen Fulwiler is organizing a similar thing, but for moms, and I was so jealous, because it sounds exactly like the kind of getaway I'd want to do! And I am so glad you and Morgan have come up with this idea! I for sure am emailing you soon!

  5. Love the idea of wearing something you feel comfortable in. Nothing like "dressing to impress" then spending the whole evening adjusting and tugging because the outfit is just not you.

    So looking forward to this weekend, really hope I can make it.

  6. Dude, the comfy clothes tip is genius. How many times have I "sucked it in" for a whole night, only to be miserable because I couldn't relax?!

    HAVE SO MUCH FUN IN SPAIN!!!!
