Friends Luncheon

Hi All,
I really have enjoyed blog hopping during this holiday season. Another thing I love is getting to host and attend get togethers, during the holiday! Today I had two long time girlfriends over for lunch.
I also wanted you to see my new movable kitchen island. I am keeping all the coffee, tea wine and cutting boards on this side, along with some utensils.
This side is where the spice rack are.
The dining room is ready for our luncheon. Spring mix salad with raspberries, pecans, apples and gruyere cheese, warm artichoke dip with bagel rounds, coleslaw, port wine cheese and crackers, fresh orange slices, wine and chocolate cake and coffee for dessert.
Here we are. Susie(in front) and I were majorettes together in high school and Susan to my left was a cheerleader. We still love being together, after all these years :)

What I Have Been Waiting For...

Good Morning All,
Here is the view from my chair, and Cocoa's, too! Can you see the whiteness outside!!!
Yes, we have our first snow! Excuse the wire fence. It was to hold the dogs in during construction.
Hope you are all having a good day!

Some Christmas Cheer!

Hi All,
Sending some Christmas cheer your way from some of my favorite TV shows... (yes, I know I live in the past, lol!)
The girls, Mary and Rhoda decorating the tree, in that great apartment!
Bob and Emily Hartley from The Bob Newhart Show...
Who can forget these girls. Love them!
Darrin #2 and Samantha from Bewitched. I loved that house!
You can never go wrong with Andy. I never get tired of watching this great show.

Help!!!

Hi All,
Anyone else finding problems with editing or publishing a post on Google Chrome? The only way I can do this now is go to Safari, but the words are bunched together in places.
When I go to edit my post or publish a new one, I get a big mumbo jumbo of words and symbols. Yikes! Anyone got a fix for this??? Please and thanks...

Tennis Girl Christmas Party!

Hi All,
I hosted our Tennis Girl Christmas party this year. We always have so much fun!
The Den is ready for cocktails and appetizers...
Pomegranate-tinis, yummy...

Lunch is served. We all bring something to eat. I made the dessert, a pumpkin torte.
Back to the den for present opening!
After opening the presents, we played Apples to Apples. We love our game time!


Love my girls!

Christmas Trees!

Hi All,
I am loving to see what all of you are doing for your Christmas decor. So inspiring!
Love my tree in the new den... (Now I need to start the wrapping!!!)
A closer look. I did all red and gold...
I found the ornament pick at Jeffery Allen, yesterday. I will go after Christmas and see if I can find some more on sale.
Here is my other tree in the smaller den. This one is filled with special ornaments.
One my son made with Popsicle sticks at school. Awww...
There is my sweet boy nestled in that shredded wheat wreath he made, so many years ago...
All my tennis ornaments hang here, too!
And my sweet baby girl, who is 25 now. She made this one in school. I love them so!
Wonderful keepsakes...

I am joining...
