My 81st Birthday Bash

Somehow I went from turning 30 to being 81 because of a picture and comment on Facebook...the party was still great. A bunch of our friends showed up, although it was bit chilly and mosquitoey, so only those who ventured out to the deck where I was sitting got to have their pictures taken (missing people include: Jason, Maria, Warren, JJ, Julia, and Mikey).

Alex sent me away for a loverly massage (thanks!) so he and Stacey could decorate the house.

I came home to the door all decorated and pretty and "30" stuff everywhere in the house.

We had to mix our slushy martinis up - apparently it takes two people to do this. These are the best inventions ever - you buy them at Linens 'n' Things of all places, add the al-co-hol and some water and freeze them for a few hours. Instant blender drinks without the mess of the blender!

Then my lovely cousins arrived and brought with them the evening's entertainment.



What party is complete without a BeDazzler? Not this party, obviously. We all had to try BeDazzling something.

the BEDAZZLERPretty please can I open the BeDazzler?

nate and stacey don't look too impressed with meNot sure what I'm telling Nate and Stacey, but they don't look too impressed. Probably something to do with BeDazzling them?!

nateNate says: No, I don't think I need my jeans BeDazzled tonight, thanks. Besides, I don't really think the BeDazzler should be mixed with al-co-hol. It should only be operated below .08.

Clean up time...interesting how the cheese plate looks like it's been attacked, the pizza boxes are empty and in the garbage (no you can't see them in this picture), there are a few chips in the bowl, and the watermelon, raw veggies, and broccoli are still abundantly present...hmmm...go figure!
