That is the question.
Not that I don't like to party, because I totally do.
And, I even love to host parties (I like being appreciated and recognized as awesome).
But, Hubby does not.
Every time I suggest that we consider possibly thinking about maybe hosting a little get together for a birthday or a holiday he huffs and puffs and attempts to blow the house down, thereby rendering it unsuitable for party hosting.
I'm not sure what his beef is with parties exactly.
Obviously I do all of the planning, prepping, and general hosting of the party (you know, so all the glory is mine).
All he's required to do is smile, talk to his friends, and drink beer.
Is that hard?
So, I recently proposed that we host the 4th of July festivities at our place.
I even suggested we do a potluck type deal (totally against every fiber of my being since then others would be entitled to some of my much awaited glory) to reduce food cost.
But, with money saved, suggested we get one of those moon bounce thingys for the kids (and for me and BFF before and after the party) that you can get from Silicon Valley Party Rentals. They deliver it, set it up, and do all the work, so how hard can it be?
So, even though he hasn't totally agreed to this shin dig (he will, I know he will), I decided to check out my other options for backyard inflatable entertainment, and you would not believe some of the awesomeness you can have blown up these days.
I mean, let's forget about the rugrats for a moment. We can get a mechanical bull!
A MECHANICAL BULL!
Antelope Valley Party Rentals has this gem for your backyard bucking party pleasure.
But, of course, he is categorically opposed to the inflatables. Something about not wanting to witness BFF & me jumping around in a drunken stupor and possibly breaking some kid's arm.
Okay Officer Killjoy, then what about black jack, craps, or poker tables?
We could get one from Northern California Party Rentals and then we could recoup the cost of having our friends around.
Oh? Is that against the law? Oh well, maybe we'll use "pretend" money.
Or, maybe we'll go with the monster slide.
It looks so freakin' FUN! Although, I'm not sure it will even fit in my yard.
What-Ever, Hubby, you better get on board because this is SO happening (if you agree, so say yes, okay? Please?)!
(Someone please tell me why we don't have this place in Maryland; just discovered you can only get these if you live in CA, Reno or Las Vegas,NV! For some reason when they said "we deliver" I thought they meant everywhere. Idiot! Well, that blows; Maryland doesn't have any fun stuff. Guess I'll have to try this place instead.)
