OK y'all, here we go with Post #99! Only one more to go. Never in my wildest dreams did I expect this party to be this much work!!! I know y'all are wondering what took me so long to post today. I really wasn't being mean or lazy....I was just finishing up all the last minute details.Now in case you are just joining in, let me quickly try to bring you up-to-date. Beginning with my 93rd post, I have been making preparations for my 100th Post/Giveaway/Birthday Celebration. If you have left a comment on these posts, your name went into a champagne bucket. Some of you clever girlies have earned extra bucket drops by dropping my name in some of the most clever and imaginative ways I have ever seen. Some have earned extra entries with cute suggestions that I have stolen, I mean borrowed to make this even more fun. This brings us to the dressing up! If you dress yourself, a mannequin, a dress form, your husband, the dog(think tutus, FringeGirl) or even a picture of someone else and post it tomorrow, I'll put your name in again. You can thank Pam for that idea.
I've started my A-List of attenders on the side bar based on the R.S.V.P's from my last post. If you'd like to be included, just leave me a comment and Baby, you are in! The red velvet rope will let you pass in as a VIP. If I've left anyone off or you can't make it, let me know. Doesn't mean you can't come...just these guest will get the royal treatment, like the best tables.
Everybody on the same page now? Onto new business. As you know, Ms. T, Maggie the Cat, Lisa and Mindy have let my secret out. I was trying to just be ordinary Debbie, but now the whole world knows I am Talking Trash(or at least all of Texas)! Y'all who are not from Texas have probably been thinking, who cares? Well, the news media for one. I have been bombarded with telephone calls and e-mails requesting interviews. But I have decided to give y'all the exclusive dirt. Feel free to ask me any question you would like and I'll be answering them tomorrow in my Big Ol' 100th Post! Since I'm from Texas, you know you will only get the truth from these lips!!! So ask away!
It sounds like the maids have finished vacuuming, so I think I'll pop into the closet and start making a final decision for tomorrow.
What do you think of this? I thought those would be the perfect dancing shoes.
I didn't realize I owned so much pink! I didn't think pink was my color. Obviously I was mistaken. Oh by the way, the bidding for Cat Daddy ends tonight at midnight. Here is your last chance! The bid is now 1 frito chili pie, a plate of chocolate chip cookies, peach cobbler, six pack of long necks(make those Shiner Bock, please), a honey baked ham, potato salad, deviled eggs, bourbon balls, tamales and hot sauce.(Thanks to Cat Daddy, the menu is complete!) The winning bid will be announced tomorrow!
This is a pretty dramatic number, but I know Harry will be wearing a black tuxedo so I wouldn't want us to look like one person instead of two.
This is pretty groovy threads, but not low cut enough for me. I say, if you got 'em, flaunt 'em! And since for once, the girls are where they are supposed to be instead of two days behind me, I'm gonna flaunt 'em. Heck, I may even be dancing on a table!
This is a dreamy dress. Yards and yards of tulle! I may just have to be wearing this one when Cat Daddy comes home tonight. I need to remind him that I'm still the mama kitty in his life even if I am selling, I mean loaning him to the highest bidder!
I've come to the conclusion I have WAY too many clothes in my closet. E-mail me next week if you're interested in any of the dresses you've been seeing here. I think I need to sell some and buy more! Doesn't that gold brocade coat scream "Barbie"?
This is the cutest little sweater and if I pair it with....................
this darling lace dress, I think I may just have................
This!!!! How cute would that be. But, girls, I'm not going for cute. Uh Uh!! I want drop dead gorgeous! Going through my clothes has worn me out. I think I need for Calgon to take me away.
Ahhh! This is more like it. This is the life of a socialite.
Did I remember to place the "Do Not Disturb" sign on the door? Oh well, too late now. I see y'all have decided to come on in. Please have a seat. You'll have to take turns as there is only one.
Time to start getting ready for my Cat Daddy to come home. I've been neglecting him with all the party prep work, but I plan on making it up to him. Wink Wink!
I feel pretty, oh so pretty. Join me. I feel pretty, oh so pretty. I feel pretty and giddy and gay. Paris H. ain't got nothing on me!
Helen Louise always told me to put on the jewelry I wanted to wear and then take one piece off. Sorry, Mother.....I want to wear it all and all at the same time!
I've got to do my nails. I'm thinking Jungle Red, my favorite! Oh dear, Chris just called and said he wouldn't be able to make it. Something about a new show starting on Biography Channel and rehearsals. Oh well, his loss and Harry's gain!
I also want to tell y'all one more thing before tomorrow morning. Remember when I said my giveaway grand prize was going to be over the top. Well, I wasn't kidding! I'm making the grand announcement tonight. The party will be over tomorrow night at midnight and then I will put my dainty white hand with freshly manicured jungle red nails into the champagne bucket and draw out the lucky name who will be receiving this in the mail:
Can you see what it is? Look closer. No, it's not Big Bertha, although she would be a great prize to receive. Look real close. Now Scream!!!! Yes, my dear sweet friends, it is an original, one-of-a-kind Laurie of 2Chippys JUNK NECKLACE! I love you all so much for your kind, witty, funny comments and for always going along with me on a joke, trip or just when I'm rambling. I wanted to say thank you in the best way possible and I think this necklace is it. Laurie was just featured in Porch Magazine for her unique pieces and this is your chance to own one. They are (3 words kiddies, say it with me) Fab U Lous and so are all of you. So let me know if you're coming, ask any questions you want me to answer, dress and post and let's have a good time!
I have one more request of y'all. If you have time, please go over to Moonlight Hollow and leave Malisa a comment. She needs some love and prayers and I know y'all have plenty of both to give. Thank you a lot from the bottom of my heart.
