My son is having what he calls a pre-prom man party this weekend. That translates to having a bunch of man-boys here roughhousing in the pool, watching violent movies, playing video games, being loud, and eating food faster than I can get it made and put out - fun :)
Have I mentioned that I have some great kids? I am so proud of every single one of them! I'm more than happy to host this pre-prom man party weekend. The guys all met up and took their dates to dinner and a movie last night. They are headed to the beach for the afternoon, and then back here for the "man party."
I'm scrambling around this morning to get the house clean, laundry done, mail and bills taken care of. Grocery shopping will be next on the agenda, and then start preparing food for the party. I'm going to make hot dogs on the grill complete with poolside topping bar - chopped onions, sweet relish, jalapeno relish, shredded cheese, a big pot of chili, chips and sodas.
I'm making an Italian sub platter for later in the evening and picking up all the goodies for a late night ice cream sundae bar. Hopefully *fingers crossed* that will hold them until breakfast. Sound good for a bunch of teen boys?
Speaking of parties, today is Armed Forces Day, a day to pay tribute to men and women who serve the United States armed forces. Memorial Day is coming up next. I thought today would be a good day to feature my Patriotic Pinboard at Pinterest for some Patriotic ideas, and also to link up for SuzieQTpies Scraps of Life Saturday Pinterest Party.
