We’ve got the fire going so come on, enjoy the music, movies, games, food and do whatever you want to do.
Ok… here we go.
First, my PJ’s. I usually sleep in BEARS pj pants and a long-sleeved BEARS shirt, but out of respect for you… and the fact that I don’t wish to be set-upon by a flock of Vikings Fans (unless, of course, they look like Dylan Bruno or Richard Armitage… then I completely surrender ALL clothing..)
Im spending some of my meticulously squirreled-away money, and springing on a new pair of pj’s. Aren’t they ADORABLE???? (they’d better be, they’re on sale for $106.00!!!)
I will, of course, have my jeans, Keens (shoes), and Bears sweatshirt, as well as a parka, snowpants, boots, raincoat, and bathing suit with me, so I’m completely prepared for MN weather. Which is alarmingly similar to Iowa weather.
Every good campfire demands good food.
I make a MEAN dutch-oven cobbler, so save me a little space next to the fire, and allow me to steal some of those red-hot coals. I’m planning on Black Forest, which is dark chocolate cake (I know, it’s supposed to be Devil’s Food. I hate devil’s food. deal), cherries, fudge topping, and whipped cream. I may substitute ice cream for that hot/cold contrast.
I cannot survive without my nippy bottle, so if you don’t have any, I’ll bring some…
You asked for Tunage… I figure that there will be lots of people talking and carrying on around the campfire, so background music is good. But it should also be stuff that you know. Finally, I’m not into heavy, loud stuff – not for a campfire, anyway – I prefer something mellow and laid back. So I’ll be bringing two of my favorite mellow and laid back cd’s:
They’re also “beachy”, so it will help us stay warm… generating images of sand and surf.
If it gets cold, and that fire just doesn’t cut it, I also have some movies that I’ll be bringing. Here are two, I may bring more. If I do bring more, they will be of the Family-Friendly Action/Adventure variety (Indiana Jones 4, Sahara), Romantic Comedy (How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days), and Just Plain Funny (Liar Liar). But these are the two definite ones that are already packed. One that will appeal to the guys, and one that will appeal to the girls. But both are suitable for all …
You can’t beat “It goes to 11”, and “INCONCEIVABLE!!!” We’ll be quoting them all night long!
That’s what I have packed so far. I may grab a few more things on the way out the door.
OH… by the way… Hot Rod will be spending the evening with his grandparents, so I can have a little adult time, but do you mind if I bring Cruise? He’s ALWAYS up for a party!!
yes, those are Hot Rod’s underpants in his mouth. (and yes, they were clean. He grabbed them from the laundry basket!)
Here are my items for the PJ party!! HAPPY ONE YEAR ANNIVERSARY!! I’m looking forward to the party!! I’m bringing my favorite Chicago Cubs boxers and t-shirt to sleep in…
One of my favorite CD’s for our listening enjoyment (Bob Marley – Legend)…..Hopefully a little Bob Marley will put us all in the spirit of warm weather.
One of my favortie DVD’s (Girls Gone Wild)
I’m bringing some Miller High Life for our host because I know it’s your favorite
I’m also bringing some Corona and some limes
Last but not least…..some flaming hot Munchies to munch on.
I found a picture of me when I was younger in PJ’s : Hope that will work 😉 DM
