A 3-year Anniversary Celebration!

Last night was the 3-year Anniversary of the first time our little group got together to play bunco!  I can't believe it's only been 3 years.  So much has changed in that time.  Weddings, babies, break ups, new relationships.  It seems like 10 years ago when D sent out that first evite for bunco.  I didn't even know what bunco was at the time :)

Daisy was our 3-year anniversary hostess, and she suggested that we celebrate with another cocktail swap!  So, it was a Bunco/Cocktail Swap Celebration.  Truth be told, we did more cocktail swapping than we did bunco playing :-o

(Daisy made monogrammed martini glasses for everyone)

(she also included a lei, a pink flamingo stirrer & a copy of the cocktail recipes for everyone)

(the girls)

(The Voice of Reason, me & Ms. Bling)

(Louis spent the day at The Klub, so he was already exhausted.  i think all of the estrogen was more than he could handle.)

(Ke$ha & Daisy)

(i <3 this picture for some reason)

(i was the biggest loser last night, and i won a fabulous prize.  Ms. Bling was the biggest winner, and she also won a fabulous prize!)

(in celebration of our 3-year Anniversary)

Tonight TEN and I have been invited to a dinner party where a private chef will be cooking for us in a friend's home.  I'm quite excited.  I do hope he doesn't cook any fish. 

I don't like fish.  I like seafood, of course, but not fish.  Everyone says to me "oooh...but you haven't had MY tuna (or my salmon, or my ________), after you eat that you will LOOOOOOVE fish".  Only it hasn't worked.  And I'm tired of trying.  It tastes too......well.....fishy, actually.  I do like shrimp & lobster & scallops & crab & even things like alligator.  Just not fish.

Anyhoo, if the fancy pants chef cooks fish I'll just try my best to eat it and smile.  Because I know that is the proper thing to do.  Or perhaps I'll smuggle it into my party pocket and bring it home to Louis :-o

Tomorrow I'm off again :)  And the weather for Smalltown, VA is this:

I plan to spend my day at the pool.

Have a lovely weekend friends!  I'm heading out of town for a few days, but I've got a few posts scheduled to let you know what's on my mind :)

I have never played Bunco, but my cousin does (who lives in NC.) My sister went to visit, they got smashed and had to walk home. Ha.

Not a big fan of fish either.

I have never played bunco either but it's big in the neighborhoods around town. Maybe if we ever get in a real house in a real hood then I'll get some friends and play.
The dinner party sounds amazing!! I want to go!
Also, are you taking every Friday off this summer?

I've got no idea what Bunco is?! But then I am from the land of beer pong and flip cup; where games only involve drinking...(all ages, as well)!

Have a fabulous long weekend (I'm off too tomm..laying by the pool uninterrupted!) and enjoy your feast tonite :)

I had no idea what Bunco was until I googled. How fun that you guys have been playing for 3 years. It always looks like so much fun!

Do you work on Fridays at all anymore?! :)

Looks like a fantastic time - love the goodie giveaways -AND I LOVE Louis' pic - he looks so delightfully contentedly exhausted with his little lei!

I have never played Bunco. I know some of my neighbors get together and have played once in a while, I always seemed to have some other engagement.
Have a great weekend!

This looks like such a fun event. I wish I lived near you so I could participate! I've only played bunco once. It took me a while to "get" it, but when I did, I had a lot of fun!

looks like it was some anniversary party. Enjoy that sunny weather tomorrow. I wish I had the day off

you have so much fun with the people in your town! laughing at the "ke$ha"

First, you look fabulous! I'm in love with the white dress, I've been on the hunt for one for a while (which I know I've bemoaned to you before). Looks so crisp and fresh with that goddess bronze you got going!

Second, I love the lei on Louis. It kind of made my morning!

Third, I agree with the fish although I eat it anyway. It's my penance for being in love with a Rhode Islander who could eat fish and seafood every night. The only thing I do like enough that I get excited about is a fresh salmon with a grilled pineapple, jalapeno, red onion salsa that I make (although in fairness the recipe was for pork chops instead of the salmon but I don't really eat pork).

Fourth, I adore you. I love you and you made this week so much better. You are some kind of angel, no doubt.
