Will the $25 per person cover drinks, meal, and tip? Make sure you take all of that into account if you go that route. I agree that going dutch (while it's a common phrase) isn't probably the best wording for a more formal invite. I like your idea for the invite though..sounds really pretty. I know when we did the funeral dinner for my Dad, we bought the meal, but it was a "cash bar" because we weren't going to pay for a huge bar bill on top of dinner for around 100 people. That doesn't cover the dinner part though. Sorry I'm rambling but it might inspire a thought (brainstorming I think we called it in school). Hmmmm.....

I am grateful to be not so cranky tonight. However...I did not go downstairs to see the mess Tom made. He was cutting large branches for his smoker downstairs. He is making smoked fish (salmon and trout) for Christmas. Last time the mess stayed there for weeks until I swept it up. We shall see!

Not much else going on. I have the kitchen ready for baking tomorrow and a few last minute gifts to wrap on the craft table, and that's about it. I have to make a Penzeys run in the morning.

Good Morning from rainy and very cloudy Orlando........................... It is pouring outside right now and I think it is to do that all day. I am glad that today is an inside day, other than the Buca's dinner tonight. We took a taxi to the outlet mall yesterday and it was great weather to be outside. Got some new shoes, a sweater, some socks and some clothes for baby Arlyn. Had a meeting in the afternoon and then I was working in the hospitality room again last night for a couple of hours. Then a group of 6 of us went around to 9 or 10 other state hospitality rooms--had a great time as we were "playing" Mission Impossible" taking the service elevators. The regular elevators have two types--one section goes to floors 1-10 and then you need to take another set from the main floor to 11-22. BUT, we found out the service ones go to all floors-so that is what we used. We were trying not to get caught or thinking we were going to get caught, so we kept humming the Mission Impossible song. I know it is corny, but we had fun.

Today is a luncheon and then another session is the delegate assembly that I need to be at to check the delegates in, help count the votes, etc. Buca's reservations at the Pope's Table is at 7:00, so we will leave the hotel around 6:15. Our group is a bit smaller this year, 13 right now going. The entire group from WIS is about half of the number last year--I am sure it is the economy as well as the convention is about a week later and getting close to Christmas.

Hope you are all having a great start to the weekend--Make it Awesome!

Barb, I bet it's still warmer than the 7 degrees we are currently at here in Waukesha! Sounds like you had a fun night, and I would have loved to be playing mission impossible! Too funny!

I have to run to Penzeys quick this morning and then it's time to get baking. Hopefully Tom will have cleared out of the kitchen by then.

Vikki...your card was beautiful and came at the PERFECT moment! I love the sentiment...it really made me feel so much better the moment I read it. How did you make that fold? I cannot figure out how you did it. I have a corner punch..but it would never make it up the high on the card. Spill girl!

These cookies are SO yummy! I used everything but the coconut because we don't like the coconut. YUMMY! I use the medium cookie scoop from Pampered Chef. My double batch made 50 cookies using that scoop. Just looked online..it's a 2 tablespoon scoop.

Kerriann, sorry I didn't convert the measurements for you...

they sound delish - I'm saving the recipe for a future date. I'm not doing any baking this year. I gotta get some weight off before the surgery and having sweets around the house wouldn't be a good idea. It will be bad enough having any leftovers from the three holiday dinners I'm cooking.

Hello Girlies,
it has been a nasty damp and rainy day here, but a good day to stay home and snugged in!

Barb, that is too funny about mission impossible. we all need to get away and be silly sometimes, its fun!

Laurie, that recipe sounds delish!

i mostly did the chores around the house today, nothin big just the usual.
and played in my room some.

not sure whats for dinner, no idea today!

Robert went to help friends with their cars, all 3 were down for different reasons. luckily the main one had only run out of gas!!! the gage is broken and she didnt know. so that one was an easy fix. not sure what the others were, he'll say when he comes home.

young Rob is out with friends doing thier shopping, he called with questions and said the mall is crazy busy! i bet!

I like to avoid the malls at this time of the year. Too crazy for me. I love black Friday shopping, but even they I stay away from the malls. It's mostly because of the way people drive in the parking lot. NUTS!

The cookies are really good. Even Tom was like...oh yah!

Three batches of cookies done, two to go. One more tonight and the English Toffee Balls tomorrow along with the friendship bread and the black bottom cupcakes. Then I need to make up to of the plates right away. Mom's neighbor gets a BIG one for all the help he and his family give Mom thru the year. We also send them a gift box of apples. The kids LOVE the apples. Mom will probably want hers right away too. That's fine.

Then I have a little time to do the others.

I still have not gotten around to rearranging my stamping shelves. I will tomorrow.

Good Morning--we had a great time at Buca's last night. We had more than enough food, but were still able to order the dessert platter of four huge items! Off to a breakfast meeting, working the voting both for a couple of hours, final general session, annual meeting with each of the states giving out their door prize (hope this is the year I win one) and then the final awards banquet tonight. I leave tomorrow afternoon, so I will be online tomorrow morning. Have a wonderful Sunday!

We could send her a set of measuring cups and spoons from here,
I am having a real hard time converting CM into INCHES.
I'd mess up a recipe sure thing!

Found out why it froze.. SOMEONE (I won't mention any names) forgot to plug int he heat tape!

It is called the lattice technique
The link to the instructions are in my gallery for that card! I'm so glad you liked it!
I am so in love with those colors lately!

we are very windy today, so no raking moms yard. i feel bad cause it looks so messy, and i worry about her slipping in them if she goes in the area. but it will get done asap.

i ran into micheals real quick while we were out, and got one of MS new punches, had a 50% coupon so it was only $9! its one of her punch anywhere punches, its got a magnet base and you snap the top of it off and place wherever you want, snap it back on the base and punch. kinda cool. i think fiskars actaully had them out first.....but she has prettier choices, and better coupons LOL...........

Funny! It's a good thing I am too broke to buy gifts, or he just wouldn't be getting one! Not even COAL! LOL

I swept, vacuumed and picked up tiny pieces of black tape and insulation for the past 2 hours almost! grrr. it sticks to everything so it is in my shoe basket, on the cat beds, stuck to the front of the couch. OMG I am steamed!


Enough.. no crabbies today I swear!

Speaking of CRABS I am craving seafood, thanks to Kerriann! I can't get that Lobster tail off my mind!

I am done baking, and well, I am glad about that. It all turned out good, but it just was enough.

I'm tired, and mother nature is being evil to me. Oh well.

Good Morning SCS Friends! Today is my final day in Orlando--my shuttle leaves for the airport at 12:30, so I have some time to enjoy the last of the warm weather. I am about ready to pack up and head down for a leisurely breakfast and then some time to relax, hopefully outside and maybe get a bit of sun before heading back to the reality of snow tonight in Wisconsin................................

It has been a great convention and the banquet last night was wonderful--an AD from Wisconsin was inducted into the Hall of Fame and he is not in good health right now, so it was a great honor to see him on the stage (with his son helping him) We then watched a very exciting Packer game--almost best the Patriots!

I am to be back in Wisconsn around 8:00 and there is some snow predicted for late afternoon--plus some freezing rain overnight. Fun Times!

I am sure to be back later to check the threads after breakfast--have a wonderful Monday!

Have a safe trip Barb. Snow changing to freezing rain overnight should make for a fun drive to work tomorrow.

Will be back later.

Vikki your package should arrive today or tomorrow.
