Simpatico: Ahhhhh!!!


Just the life and times of a silly girl, her dachshunds and all things Southern!


I am getting ready for my next 'event' (seriously I am a girl who LOVES to entertain!) on May 29th.

We used to have an annual Memorial Day "Drive-in" until a couple years ago. We would start about 9 or so, right when the sun was setting, have lots of movie food -popcorn, hot dogs, nachos-, and watch a family friendly movie under the stars and the smoke from tiki torches! So this will be the first one I have had for the neighbors and friends in a while.

Right now the menu is up in the air, as I am girl on a budget -read cheap- and Reed hasn't told me who is coming yet, besides the normal family/friends. Also, I am in remodel mode which makes my budget even tighter for entertainment.

Current projects:
--I have stripped the wallpaper in Reed's bathroom and haven't put up the new (cannot find the blades I bought Friday for my x-acto knife and refuse to purchase more!! -_-). I have new artwork for that room which is still awaiting the painting of their frames.
--Have a new duvet planned for my bedroom.. haven't purchased a thing, but feel I must do it prior to the party as this is the only room that would be half finished.
--I have a chest of drawers in my extra bedroom which needs refinishing.. have the stuff, just haven't started it.
--For the outside, I must to clean and strip my deck -le sigh-, seriously clean and redo the insides of my gas grill or throw away and purchase new, have planned a really cool drop cloth painted and sealed rug to break up the space (none of the materials have been purchased) and de-weed-i-fy my back planting beds. Oh, yeah, and I have planned out some really cool seating, which I need to build.... you know... in two weeks!

Its gonna get rather bumpy... just sit back and ride it out with me!
