Anda One Anda Two

This is my 93rd post. Time flies when you're having fun and believe me when I say I have been having a ball! I'm planning a party for my 100th post and I am aiming for Valentine's Day. I want to tie it into my Mother's birthday as well. Helen Louise was and always will be my first sweetheart. Mother was born on February 19 and since she loved a good party, I'm throwing it in her honor.(BTW, does anyone know why we say throwing a party? Just exactly where are we throwing it to?) Mother also loved giving and receiving gifts, so I'll be planning a giveaway as well. I'll be doing posts on my party as we go along towards to the big 100, but you can expect your invitation around the 7th of February. In the meantime, be thinking about your attire (I'm thinking formal) and who your escort will be. Mother would have liked either Elvis, Tom Jones or John Travolta to have escorted her, but I'm thinking Sam Elliot, Johnny(don't even ask which one), Jay Bush or James Garner. We don't have to tell Cat Daddy, he already knows if one of the above show up and asks me to run away with him, I'm history!!! Don't you go feeling sorry for him....he has his own list. So get ready to make plans to attend. Oh and before I forget, as you post a comment on this and all future party posts, your name will be put in the champagne bucket for the giveaway!!! So get your dancing shoes ready, polish up your mambo and let's get ready to rumba. Cha Cha Cha!

Johnny Depp? Johnny Cash? Johnny Carson? Johnny Jump Up? Johnny Appleseed? Johnny Come Lately? Come on...which Johnny?

So I guess this means the Paris trip is on!? 100 posts. How many months have you been blogging?

Helen Louise must have been one special lady...because she has one special daughter! She was a very pretty woman and it is so sweet of you to honor her in this way!

I will be bringing Johnny Depp...so it better not be him! I would have brought Paul Newman, but I think I'm a little late for that one! But I could bring Robert Redford instead...he may be looking his age but I bet he could still make my toes curl! Oohh, did I just say that?

Well, I am ready for the champagne bucket!

Thanks for sharing the beautiful photo of your dear mother! I'm sure any party YOU throw is going to be unforgettable!!! ~Lori

Frippery said...

Can't wait for the party! My mom's name is Helen too. Another link in the soul sista chain. I'm thinkin' Johnny Depp since all the other hot Johnnys are no longer with us. Can I dress up my dress form instead? (She has the shape to wear the things I can't) Hope there is room in the bucket for libation as well as names. Hugs, Pam

Anita said...

I love all the lovin' you're giving your momma. Being a momma is hard work- and when we're just girls, we sometimes do not appreciate it so much. Now that I'm walking a similar path as my momma, I think she did just fine :)

So there's a reason to party! And champagne- soooo fun! Toss me in and I'll be watching- only 7 more posts to go to 100! Wow!

OH GOODY.... a party! I'm definitely up for that. Can't wait for the invite AND the 100th Post! Happy Sunday!

Vintage Sue said...

I'm bringing Sam Shepard to your shindig! I bet he'd be up for some junking, too..... XOX

David said...

I love the picture of your mom. She was a very pretty lady.

Deborah said...

Your post are just too cute!
You have a sweet-looking, lovely mom.

Throwing a party, huh? hmmm, I'm going to look that phrase up...never thought about where we should 'throw' it.

If you only knew how much I love champagne...will you be serving it?!
