Don’t get testy–party pictures are here!

Ep9d A good time was had by all.

Ep9a_1Maybe too good of a time.

And before you start saying, “Wow, that June sure learned some photography skillz overnight,” all these photos were taken by my friend Laurie, who had a 200-foot-tall camera with her.

Ep9n People were very good at following the theme. Here is Laura with Dry Sack sherry.

Ep9r And Hammy with In Heat Beer. She added the word “not” to every bottle.

Ep9s Melon balls, hot peanuts, mozzarella balls with cherry tomatoes.

Ep4 Laurie made cake balls that were to die for. Here is mom. Holding the balls.

Ep9p Here is also mom, scolding Jessica for no reason.

Jessica is going to this boot camp thing? She gets up at 4:50 a.m every day and works out with this trainer. Anyway, she has to write down everything she eats and they give her a graph of her fat and calorie intake. She said last time she came to my house the graph shot up dramatically and that last night was “another 3,000 calorie night.”

Ep9o Winston didn’t care about his figure.

Ep3 Neither did Francis. Believe it or not, he stayed in his angry chair all night, even though people were in that back room. Everyone emerged with their blood still inside their body, which was a win.

Ep8 People enjoyed my decorations, although one friend said he was here for about half an hour before he noticed stuff hanging from our ceiling. Observant.

ShakeItPhoto Photo Jackie O called. Wants her dignity back.

Ep5 I failed to tell you all that I got my hair cut. I did not tell you because I think I look like Justin Beiber. But people last night told me it was cute, including Carpool Queen, here, but we all know she lies like a rug on a regular basis. Carpool Queen made a BRIS-kit. Get it? It was delish.

So I’d say the party was a success.

Ep2 Edsel was properly feted.

Ep9i Now, who’s gonna come clean this shite up?

At one point, I was sort of hot, in a "she's 27 and probably a 7" kind of a way. Now I'm old and have to develop a charming personality. Guess how that's going.

    Thanks for the sweater info. I’ll be headed up to Bebe this week. A convenient place to shop since it is in between two of my favorite stores, Sephora and White House/Black Market. I can even take my hubs along since the Apple store is right next to Sephora and once he walks into that hallowed place, he will not be heard from for hours.

  36. AUHP-If anyone could have stolen a kiss from Francis, I think it would have been LauraL. She actually extended her finger to him and I was shocked he didn’t snap it off, he just sniffed. She just has that charm factor. Knowing the risk she’d be taking, I encouraged her to try again. Cranky Francis would have no part in allowing this random act of kindness on his part to be captured in a picture.

    Too bad Edsel and Winston weren’t fed the day of the party and had to try and inconspiculously sneak some food that evening. Too bad they weren’t successful trying to be inconspicuous.
    A big YEA! to your friend Jessica for keepin’ it going at boot-fricking-torture-camp. Hopefully your mom was scolding Jessica that cakeballs are not necessarily a bad thing and that it is okay to include it in her food journal; her trainer won’t even notice it. That’s a lie but man, it would be great to have Laurie’s cake ball recipe.

  43. AmishAnnie, the cake balls were really Oreo cookie balls. Quite easy to make. Take a pound package of Oreo’s and put all but three cookies in a food processor or blender to crush finely. You could also place them inbetween wax paper and use a roller pin. Add 8 ounces of room temperature cream cheese to the mixture.
    Roll into balls and place in the fridge for at least one hour. Remove and add the sticks. I then melted a package (2 pkgs would be ideal) of Baker’s semi sweet squares.(You could use white chocolate or milk chocolate) Dip the balls and place in small muffin papers. I place the balls in papers just to make the clean-up and transportation easier. Wax paper works too.
    After dipping the balls I tried to then dip them into a bowl of jimmies, but that created too much of a mess.
    One of my favorite foods of the evening were the stuffed mushrooms….Mmmmmmm.
