You may also remember that Donald and I discovered we have a conflict today and almost had to cancel the party, but my girlfriend Sissyfriss Sockmonkey jumped in and agreed to host it for me. This all worked out beautifully 'cause today is the day Sissy's book group was meeting and they all agreed it sounded fun to have a full fledged tea party. And it should be great fun!
But poor Sissyfriss is a nervous wreck. She always throws really lovely parties, but gets awfully nervous beforehand. She's asked her best gal pal, Lou Lou Skiptoo, to come early and help her get things ready. Sissyfriss and Lou Lou have been very best friends since the cradle. and oh my - do they have stories to tell. Whew. The trouble these girls have managed to get themselves into . . .
But. they're grown up ladies now and all that silliness is behind them.
They're both here and I'm leaving!
Things are like 42 whirlwinds around this house!
These gals are busy bustling about and I hear the tinkle clink of dishes and wine glasses (wait - - - - WINE GLASSES!?!?) coming out of the china cabinet.
AND the dessert caterer has arrived! How Lovely! We've used these folks before and they do lovely, scrumptious desserts!
Donald and I are on our way out the door, but I hope some of you will stop in and enjoy the party. And I promise to post pictures as soon as I get home.
I did manage to get Sissy and Lou Lou to sit down long enough to snap a picture of the two of them. They are adorable!!
(wine glasses? It's a TEA party . . . .
oh my . . . .
it's going to be fine fine fine
I am not going to fret about this
gonna be fine
wine glasses?? . . )
Well, okeey doke.
Donald and I are home, and things look as though a good time was had by all!
Poor Sissyfriss and Pitiful Lou Lou must have worked awfully hard 'cause they're both sound asleep on the bed and snoring to beat the band!!!!!! (don't tell them I mentioned the snoring, okay?).
From the number of wine bottles we found in the trash, it is no wonder they're sleeping and snoring. big sigh.
They left the camera out for us with a note that neither of them are very computer savy, so would I mind loading their pictures, so I'll do that. And I'll try to include a few of their little notes they left me giving some party highlights.
Sissy and Lou Lou enjoyed the desserts we had when we threw ourselves the Meanderings and Muses Milestone party to celebrate having 10,000 visitors. They enjoyed them so much, they hired the same dessert caterer. I'm sure hoping they saved us some!!
From these pictures, I'd have to say it looks as though there was a good turn out! I recognize some of Sissy and Lou Lou's friends and wish I'd been here to visit with them. I see Harley here saying "Hey!" to Benjamin.
Benjamin hasn't been by to see us in forever!
While Sissyfriss was welcoming guests and mingling, Lou Lou Skiptoo took care of putting out dishes for the dessert buffet
This is Maudie with Lou Lou,
and this is Victoria
and these are just a few of the goodies they're having
and here's a couple pictures of some more of Sissy and Lou Lou's guests
From the looks of these pictures, I'd have to say we almost had the makings of a Teddy Bear's picnic here.
Ahhhh - and here's a clue as to where some of that wine went . . . . . . .
And after Sissyfriss Sockmonkey and Lou Lou Skiptoo said their final goodbyes to their guests, they did what all girlfriends do after a party.
Sat down for a chat about it.
and chat they did.
They had themselves a "Post Party Replay," complete with giggles, snorts, and another glass of wine.
And they agreed that it was a fine fine party, and that everyone had themselves a gay old time.
And then they took a nap.
