I just noticed the number of people in our group and we are now 300 in number! I've had such fun with this group and am so pleased to see it grow -- more room for more friends. We need a party to celebrate. I'll bring the balloons -- big clusters of round balloons in pastel colors (in honor of spring). What else do we need?

I just sent out an invitation to 160 of our group. I didn't want anybody to miss this party. I'm just about to pop open my Tupperware container of canapes! What's your favorite? Maybe I have something you like?


message 13: by Casey (new)

Casey Anybody like cheesecake? That is my FAVORITE!!! ;)

JanetTronstad Author Tronstad | 2759 comments Mod
Oh, canapes! That sounds wonderful. In the mini-bite area I love the tiny quiches. Not sure I have a favorite canape. I love when there's a variety though so I can pick and chose.


message 15: by Terri (new)

Terri (terrie) | 735 comments Lyn, you miss one is me. I got it anyway. I am here to celebrate with great friends here.



Cheese cake! Bring it Casey!

Heidi | 985 comments I think I will bring mini pigs in a blanket, you know, those tiny sausages wrapped in dough? I hope everyone likes those, they are a favorite of mine :) We have so many wonderful looking goodies here already, yum! I am going to have a bit of everything! I am happy to say chocolate is bothering me less these days for some reason, so bring it on! ;) Thanks for bringing all of these great things everyone, and thanks for all of the pretty decorations Janet!

Heidi -- speaking of decorations, I think I'll add some shiny streamers that blow in the breeze -- in pastel colors as well to go witih the balloons. If we have a breeze, I'm thinking we on a grassy hillside somewhere warm.

Oooh, how pretty! I like the setting too! Can we have a stream or lake near by as well to dip our feet in, or for those daring enough, to take a swim in? We could even have parasols and take a nice row boat ride and take turns looking pretty and rowing, lol :)


message 21: by JanetTronstad (new)

JanetTronstad Author Tronstad | 2759 comments Mod
Oh, let's have a small lake for swimming or toe-dipping. And I love the parasols! And the boat ride -- although I don't think we should have to row. That's what we have the gorgeous men for who are with us.

Ausjenny | 4955 comments Did I mention I hired a chocolate fountain?????


message 27: by Barbara (new)

Barbara | 518 comments I'll bring a fresh fruit salad. The lake and the boat ride are great ideas. I love to be around water. I agree with Janet that we should be able to relax in the boat. What if we had a godolier take us around the lake, kind of like we're in Italy?

Yes, I usually don't think of marshmallows, but I would like it that way.

Ausjenny | 4955 comments Carla If you look in the far corner there is a salad bar with very healthy foods.


message 35: by JanetTronstad (new)

JanetTronstad Author Tronstad | 2759 comments Mod
LOL, Ausjenny -- You mean that far distant corner we can hardly see from here? Just the walk over would be good for us.


message 36: by Ausjenny (new)

Ausjenny | 4955 comments Yep that one. its by the low calorie deserts too but hey the cute guys are there too.


message 37: by JanetTronstad (new)

Debbie | 53 comments OK, for some reason, the comment that I posted last evening isn't in here - cause I'm here and I brought ham balls and I'm having a wonderful time eating and boating. And now I'm looking at all the handsome guys (I'm only doing that so I can help out any of the single gals out there! teeheehee!)

JanetTronstad Author Tronstad | 2759 comments Mod
Debbie -- of course, looking at the handsome guys is always a public service we undertake on behalf of our sisters :))


message 44: by Angela (new)

Victoria Bylin (victoriabylin) | 198 comments Wow! 300 strong! That's fantastic . . . Since we're celebrating with dessert, I'll bring cheesecake. For 300 people, I figure that's . . . 50 cheesecakes! Let's see . . . that's about 40 lbs. of cream cheese, 800 oz. of sour cream and a lot of sugar and vanilla and graham cracker crums!

LIH readers are the best around!


message 48: by Ausjenny (new)

Ausjenny | 4955 comments All this food is making me want to go on a treasure hunt to get rid of some of the excess energy and guess what the guys are coming too.
