Busy Saturday

I have this birdhouse planter in a corner of my deck.

I have had it for years, but this is first year that a bird has decided to use it for her nest.
How exciting!

I went to Joanne's today and they had 80% off their Garden Gate line.
80% off!

I bought 8 basket planters with liners and 2 bird feeders.

I do love a good sale.

My BIL and SIL are having their 25th anniversary today. They booked their party through me at the hotel (for those who are new to my blog, I am the Banquet Sales Director at a hotel). They are going all out with 140 people-- full appetizer table -- 3-entree buffet -- full dessert table and host bar.

It should be very, very nice.

It BETTER be very, very nice! I get so nervous when we are doing parties for relatives. I really shouldn't because I know we are the best facility in town and everyone will work hard to make sure the event is a success. But still I know if any little thing is wrong I will feel like it's all my fault. I'm especially worried that the Chicken Roma will be dry--you know how easy it is to get a dry chicken breast. I've talked to both chefs and we decided that a nice white sauce would give us extra insurance, so that is what I suggested to my sister-in-law. She agreed. I am crossing my fingers that it turns out good.

Off now to shower and get ready for 4pm mass, then off to the party.
The first thing I will do is head to the bar for a cold glass of white zinfandel to ease my jitters.


  1. I'm sure the anniversary party will be a smash!
    I only got 50% off of the Garden Gate stuff at Joann's yesterday. Darn! I didn't buy hanging planters, but little metal fences and old-fashioned looking plant ID pokes and a ceramic dish to use as a ground bird bath.

  2. Chickadees are SO adorable!

    How lucky for you to have a tenant.

  3. Wow, you really did great at that sale!! I'll have to go see at our stores if anyone has started sales on their garden stuff!! Have great fun at the party and I'm sure everything will go well!!!!
