Do You Bunco?

I love my Bunco
We play once a month,
and when there's a
It's Party ON!
If you haven't ever played,
you might look into
starting your own group!
It's a dice game, with
12 players...(you can
talk, and play, no strategy)
Some groups
play with their husbands,
others, like ours, are just
The main thing is, choose
who you know will be fun
and a good fit for your group.
We plan on playing together
The word is out, on how
fun our Bunco gals are,
and we have people asking
to be subs...we actually
have 13 players, and if
we all show up, then many
times, the hostess is just that...
(and sometimes, that's a blessing)!
Check online for Bunco rules.
We each pay $6 dollars to play,
and have money prizes...
The hostess provides dinner, desserts
& sometimes other giftys too,
(that's totally up to her)!
We're a party group, so many times
we go all out for holidays!
Our hostess for Valentine's Day
is also our group creator,
I call her our 'Party Gal',
here are a few pictures of our
Valentine Party!
~Wish you could have been there too~

~a candy bar~

~you could decorate your own cookies~
I forgot to take pictures of the three tables...
they were beautiful, adorned with silver chargers, all set
with hearts sprinkled about, and a heart shaped
box of chocolates in the center of each place setting!
Also a pretty jar with conversation hearts at each table!

I know, I know, I'm terrible about taking pictures...
Jeri (our hostess), also had the most incredible
Panini station set up in front of this area...
with several different types of cheeses, meats,
olives, onions, tomatoes, condiment's etc.
...and what, four different salads!
(OMGoodness, an electric Panini iron, 
and a timer...)

~these are our Birthday cupcakes~
(Each month if someone has a birthday, Pam, 
who we also call the 'Cookie Lady' makes
cupcakes for the birthday girl)!
Oh, and the jar lids you see,
belong to small jars of vanilla ice-cream 
(she'd fixed ahead of time), 
just waiting for the hot fudge topping!
...and this, yep cheescake!
I mean really?
Jeri really goes over the top, don't you agree?
We were waited on, and pampered like you
would not believe!!! There was so much
more, but you get the idea...
pure enjoyment!
I also forgot to take a picture of the bar,
I won't even go into that...too much to tell!
We love you Jeri,
thank YOU, for such a fun
Bunco Party!
We also had a Valentine exchange,
yep, I told you, we looove our parties!
We're pretty much like little girls when
Valentine Day rolls around.
Our hostess with the mostest,
had a bucket ready for each of us...

Over flowing with love, from our
Bunco Girlfriends!
Laughed & Giggled, 
as we went through our loot,
(because the little girl in us
always come out),
 yes it does!!! 
Thank you for visiting my blog,
I'd looove it,
if you'd leave a message!!!
Always, Debbie~

Her First Valentine Exchange!

Remember the day,
of your
'very first ever'
Valentine exchange?
Such a sweet
A couple of weeks ago,
my Granddaughter Lulu,
 and I, worked on her
first ever, Valentine project
for her kindergarten
Valentine exchange...
For the girls,
I drew a 'Sassy' Lip pattern,
for the boys,

Easy, quick & Fun!
We traced the amount we needed 
onto fun foam,
then I cut them out, 
as Lulu punched the holes
and inserted the heart suckers! 
I ran off her Valentine message,
and we stapled them onto the suckers,
and TA DA, they turned
out adorable!
Lulu loved them!

Finished Valentine!
She could hardly
wait to hand them out!
What fun we had making these!
There she is, Miss Sassy Lips!

I ~mustache~ you... 
My friends,
wouldn't you agree,
that she looks adorable
either way?  
Happy Valentine's Day
Thanks so much
for visiting my
blog, I really appreciate you
stopping by, and would
looove it if you'd leave
a message!
Always, Debbie~
