Friday Mishmash

One of the Texas taglines is "It's like a whole other country" but I don't think they meant that literally...however, Google Maps seems to think that the town of Frisco (near Dallas) is actually located in Uzbekistan:
Since I've been to Stonebriar Centre, I guess I can say that I've been to Uzbekistan?

The war over Jeff continues.  Henry had the unmitigated gall to lie next to Jeff, which meant Kip had to take the top of the couch.  He was shooting daggers at Henry, who acted like he had no idea Kip was even there:
If looks could kill...

I was one of several hostesses for Cary's bridal shower last weekend - we had so much fun putting everything together, and I might be biased, but I think it came out so pretty:
We had a brunch, with a cereal bar, donuts, mini quiches and fruit.  I broke out my Fiestaware and love how festive the tables looked!
CC pouring milk onto her "suicide" bowl of cereal...remember how, as a kid, you would take a shot of every flavor of soda from the fountain into your glass?  She did that with all of the cereal.  I think having Cap'n Crunch, Froot Loops, Cinnamon Toast Crunch, and Cocoa Puffs brought out the kid in all of us!
We played several games and then Cary opened her gifts - this picture made me laugh when I uploaded it later, because there was an errant roll of toilet paper in the background!  Yes, we designed wedding dresses out of toilet paper, and created a backstory for each one.  My team did a Vegas dress for the bride on her seventh wedding!

It's Memorial Day weekend here in the United States, which means Monday is a holiday.  We have plans, so I'll be back on Wednesday - hope that won't mess up those of you who know what day it is by my posts, LOL!  Have a great weekend!

  1. I just went to a bridal shower on Sunday and played the same toilet paper dress game! I love planning parties and can't wait until it's my turn to host a shower for someone ( perhaps my sister someday???????)

  4. We shop at Stonebriar regularly...it's kind of a long drive, but I never realized it was all the way to Uzbekistan! Have a great long weekend.

    1. It's interesting how smooth the transition is into another country, isn't it? ;)

  5. Yes, the shower decorations look like they were chosen for a fiesta ware party! So fun. Also, I love the food you chose--fun and yet relatively simple.

    Also, it seems you were surrounded by unusually tall women at that party--what was up with that :)

    The war over Jeff is totally hilarious. I think it needs to be a regular Friday feature.

    1. I just didn't get a picture with CC and Loretta at the party - they are my short friends. One of these days we'll have to do a line up shot, shortest to tallest, after a run. There's over a foot difference!

      The cat war would be a funny feature. It's pretty hilarious in real life - wish I could think of some good thought bubble captions for the pictures.

  9. Your cats are hilarious. I never got too daring with my suicide sodas--I think the "craziest" I ever got was mixing Dr. Pepper and Diet Pepsi! Haha.

  12. I never had a bridal shower. They do bachelor parties here but hardly ever showers. Yours looks like so much fun and the tables look so colorful.

    Hope you have a great day today. We are having a holiday too here so am enjoying a day off too.

  14. Love how the shower turned out! And when I was doing WW way back when I used to eat Kashi Go Lean with 1/4 cup of Lucky Charms - so delish!
