It is NOT a PARTY unless the COPS show up! Happy 1 year Sparkversary!


Voted Popular Blog Post: View All Popular Posts

Sunday, January 01, 2012

Thanks to EVERYONE that came to my Goal Party yesterday. It was great! Spark peeps are the BEST! I said PARTY like you mean it and LIVE like you mean it. You guys know how to party! emoticon emoticon emoticon


Thanks to MOUNTAINMERMAID and PYNETREE and JBLOSSOM for bringing healthy snacks and wine to share. emoticon emoticon


Thanks to LINDAJO621, NORAB52GOOD, JUST_TRI_IT, NEVERORNOW, IRISHBEANERGAL MTULLY, MISSY455, MAPEGASUS, MANDYSFITAT40, and KELLEEH for staying to help clean up all of the confetti they brought...it looked like Times Square in here. emoticon


We had a cutest PJ contest...it was a 3-way tie between CHEEKY1000 in pink plaid PJs and MAY2459 in blue snowman PJs and OLDERANDRT in Minnie Mouse flannel PJs, Wow, Spark peeps have great taste in PJs. emoticon



Somebody put RUARUGBYNUT2 in the hospital bed, then raised the foot and head of the bed, so he was stuck. I think it had something to do with the JUNK FOOD he brought. emoticon



Thanks to REDRENNY for helping with the car keys...no problems there. Everyone that consumed alcohol (mostly in MODERATION) spent the night. emoticon



Everyone was well mannered. Nobody made a mess or broke anything. Good thing we live in the country though. In the city, the neighbors may have called the law for the noise. You guys know how to have fun! I had a friend in college that had a party philosophy...it is NOT a Party, unless the COPS show up. I said that to a cop once...man, he had NO sense of HUMOR.
emoticon



Someone brought me a hostess gift of IRISH WHISKEY CHOCOLATE...WHOA that was DECADENT. Irish AND chocolate...what's not to love? emoticon



At midnight we ate black eyed peas, beer bratwurst(pork), and sauerkraut for good luck. We will eat the leftovers again today for more good luck. You can't have enough good luck. And the PARTY continues today...WHY...because TODAY is my 1 YEAR SPARKVERSARY. emoticon



Do you have a family tradition of eating certain foods on New Years day? Feel free to bring your favorite dish to the Sparkversary Party today. Thanks again, to EVERYONE! emoticon



Spark on!

    That was the motto where I lived when I was eighteen. If the cops didn't come up and make everybody quit fighting in the yard, go to bed and pour out the booze, nobody considered it a party.


Bad thing was, I had a six month old baby, my husband worked seven days a week, and they were always calling US to straighten everything out before the cops got there.

Fun times......NOT!!! :)

    We ate black eye peas yesterday with our pork & sauerkraut. I always ate sauerkraut and pork growing up, but the black eye peas was something I never heard of until I met my husband.
I even make my kids eat a spoonful even though they hate them, lol!
Happy New Year!!

    Your party was lots of fun last night and the best part for me was waking up without a hangover or upset stomach! Party on!I will bring a loaf of my Polish grandmother's favorite New Year's bread made with lots of eggs and raisins in it and one hard-boiled egg still in the shell on top and home made unsalted butter.

    I think I went the wrong house, b/c when I knocked on the

door, standing there in my Lucky 4 leaf clover emoticon PJ's

they laughed and closed the door. . emoticon I was not having much luck at all.

So I went to the next house and they said they would call the police if I did not get my silly green PJ's off their property.

Sadly I went home but it looks like the party was a huge success.

    HI TRISH
Great party last night, MOUNTAINMERMAIDS canopy,s were delicious and it was good of IRISHBEANERGAL & the others to help clean up CHEEKY1000 PJ,S were a bit loud i must admit and a great night had by all as i recall, i must say though i might have slept a bit better had it not been for the folded bed, i think TURTLEBEAR had a hand in it the cheeky little tinker.
You have done fabulous in such a short time top Sparkie in my book & a lot of others by the amount of response to your page you get, keep it up Babe and i cant wait for next year,s party
YOU ROCK!

    Sounds like a great party. I hope that someone released RUARUGBYNUT2 from the hospital bed.

We have a veggie tray, shrimp ring, smoked oysters (for me only), meat and cheese tray with crackers (this year mostly whole wheat ones) and a fruit tray for NYE and we will eat the left overs today.

I just love back-to-back parties!!! And, I know what you mean about it is not a party until the cops show up! My DH and I gave a pool party in our younger years that got..interesting...and the cops showed up twice! Fortunately, they had a sense of humor and only came because of complaints by residents (apartment complex) about the music and skinny dipping by some of the party goers...LOL!!! (NOT me! I would never show my fat self at that time!)
So, hmmmm....I made turkey today to keep it somewhat healthy. I will bring over the leftovers to go with everything else you have. And, of course, a little something to sip on....
