Ladies night...Pokeno fun

Thanks to one of my sweet friends I started joining some of the sweetest ladies for monthly 
Pokeno nights. It's a night where we can eat, fellowship, laugh, drink and play Pokeno. It is such a fun game and so easy....we throw in tons of prizes making it even more fun. I have horrible luck but have managed to come home with a few fun gifts:) 

How we do it: each girl brings a $20 gift....whoever wins a hand gets to pick a gift. Once all the gifts are opened, we do a few rounds of stealing gifts. Each person puts in $1 for the loser pile and $5 for the winner pile. Our final game is blackout and whoever wins that round gets the winners pot. The loser pot goes to whoever never won a hand. If there isn't a loser we save it in an envelope for the next month....whew that sounds like a lot but it is so fun. I highly recommend. The perfect excuse to have some girl time and hopefully go home with some cash or a cute gift. If my friend Kaiti sits by me I inevitably don't win (hello ADD, hello talking and laughing too much);) But so worth it. The $20 gift can be anything...jewelry, cash, gift card, candles, skin care, home decor...you name it we love it! The hostess for the evening provides dinner and drinks...the perfect combination for a fun evening. 

I hosted this month and did easy ham and cheese sliders. We had just gotten in town so I needed something quick and easy. I reference my blog all the time so went back to see what I fixed last time and couldn't find it on the blog so I'm throwing in some of those pics.
