I'm sensing a theme here, how 'bout you?!
Yep, we really are having the 2nd Annual Happily (un)Haunted Halloween Party @ Casa de Dummies this Saturday and you're all invited!
Pu-leez! I'm nice (okay, I'm sorta nice), but I'm not that nice!
I'd love to have you all over another time, though. Right after I win the lotto, buy a huge mansion in the Hollywood Hills, and have an entire staff of chefs, maids, and party planning geniuses on hand to take care of it.
Then I'll throw a funky-fresh shin dig and invite each and every one of you 402 followers (and other skulkers who I know come here to read, but for whatever reason don't like to leave comments or follow so that I can actively stalk you back) who have been with me from the beginning (or shortly thereafter).
Sadly though, it's just me, Dumb Mom, no waiters, no maids, no award winning chefs. All I have at my disposable is a handful of dude-made decorations (see above), a few fun costumes, and BFF, party planner extraordinaire.
That's right, I have a party planner.
And, she's sorta awesome.
But, she doesn't have a full wait staff, an accomplished kitchen crew, or people to set up and tear down the awesomeness she creates.
Maybe one day.
But, not today.
Which means that all of her amazing ideas require her (and me, unfortunately) to endure back breaking, time consuming, the-end-product-is-da-bomb-and-you-better-recognize type of work.
So, needless to say all of my Blog Land buds are not on the guest list IRL, but don't fret you will get to experience the awesomeness through the blog (and eventually through her blog as well once I quit holding all of the photos hostage so she can launch the darn thing).
Let's get this party stared by sharing the invitations she made.
Are they not the cutest, (un)haunted little things?
Feel free to be jealous, I'm totally used to it by now.
But, let's not get carried away with that. I need some help coming up with the menu and jealous people are unhelpful people.
So... If you're over it, any slightly-envious-creative-masterminds want to share some easy-for-a-Dumb-Mom tricks and treats to make a party (with 23 children on the guest list!) even more Happily (un)Haunted?
Giving away two copies of the movie Extract starring Jason Bateman and Ben Affleck. Contest ends 4/2/10.
