Pizza Party and 50th Post Giveaway

I can't believe this is my 50Th post already!!
In the trend that I see happening, I will be having a little blogging giveaway. YAY!
This cute glittery Eiffel Tower. I purchased it from one of my favorite shops in Ventura,
B on Main. It is really cute and sparkly. Made with German glass glitter.
Just leave a comment, and I will enter you in my little giveaway. Leave me your blog info and or email info, so I can get a hold of you, when you win. I will draw a name on Friday. Good Luck!!


Now on to the Friday night pizza extravaganza!!

Here is a picture of our neighbors Mike and Bruce. We were laughing about the fact, they both had almost identical shirts on. Up above is my friend Joan, with her husband Bill, next to my husband Mark. Joan is my walking buddy. We have know each other for about 21 years, since our kids were in kindergarten.

Here are some pictures before, and during the party.







I realized afterwards, I never took any pictures of the pizzas. Well, I was running around so much, and working so hard to get all of the pizzas done, I forgot to take pictures. Take my word for it though, the pizzas were a big hit. Everyone enjoyed them. We had a lot of fun.

I had a little trouble working with the dough, because of the humid day we were having. But it all worked out in the end.
The next night, we went to a concert in the park. We saw Steve Tyrell. (Guess what we brought for our picnic)?? Steve Tyrell was really great!! He is so entertaining. He sings standards, and Frank Sinatra. He has a really good band too.

Remember to leave a comment, to be entered into my giveaway.
Have a good Monday!

The Eiffel Tower is really cute. I have been checking into crafting with glass glitter. I hear there is so much more sparkle.

Oh wow, your table settings looked great! I hadn't realized when you you'd initially said were having a pizza party that YOU would be making all the pizzas! It's a lot of work, but it looks like it was really a hit.

Now have a seat and put your feet up a little-- you've earned it. :-)

I love that tablecloth! I've been wanting to buy a Steve Tyrell CD. I found him on Amazon.com when they suggested him..probably because I've bought Frank Sinatra, Michael Buble, and Tony Bennet CD from them. I love his voice.

Normally I do not comment on give aways for the same reason I won't pick up loose change on the ground - I figure someone will get a kick out of finding it and that gives me a secret pleasure in knowing someone is going to be happy when they see the dime/nickel/penny lying on the ground.


THAT BEING SAD (so much for altruism!) I LOVE the Eiffel Tower - you could say I am a tad obsessed. So count me in!!! :-)
