More Party Pics...enjoy

I forgot to thank someone very important: Thank You Lenny for putting up with me while I stressed out over this little get together with our friends. I Love You!

Party In Paradise 2009

On Saturday, June 20th 2009, Tori MacArthur and Jonah Mayes hit the stage. They performed 4 songs together and then everyone at the party was treated to an amazing surprise. Jonah left the stage and it was just Tori and her guitar. She launched into the first of her songs a little shaky but managed to hit her stride by the second. She finished her set with The Best Day by Taylor Swift and then Jonah joined her onstage for yet another surprise. They performed Tori's first original titled Maybe You Love Me Too. I have to admit it brought a little tear to my eye.
Party in Paradise was a success because of the many wonderful people that helped me pull it off and I'd like to take the time to thank everyone involved:
Tori MacArthur, thank you for sharing your talent with the world and my little party. I love you!
Jonah Mayes, many thanks for your humor, talent and patience.
Muzz...and the rest of the band: thank you, thank you, thank you
Greg Holman, it just wouldn't be a party without you there. Thanks for being the best D.J. in Dallas
Dave Fitz, thanks for the awesome sound, Chris Boshell, thanks for kick ass lighting!
Arthur MacArthur for grilling some awesome cheeseburgers.
Lisa, Greg, Liz, Marc, Jeff, Sharon, Victoria and Rick you guys remind me what true friendship is...Thank you my friends.
To everyone who came to our little redneck beach party....thank you and I hope you had a great time!

It was Tori MacArthur's 3rd time to perform at our parties and she just keeps getting better. She sang 5 songs with Jonah Mayes joining her on the acoustic guitar.
We had a costume contest with trophies going to Jeff "A One Night Stand" Trimpe taking funniest, Gloria the Voodoo Priestess taking scariest and a Sexy Witch winning best overall.

Nice costumes!

We had our 4th annual Halloween party this past Saturday and I'm pretty sure all of our guests, living and dead, had a great time. Everything went as planned with a few setbacks including some sound issues and the ever present power outages. Greg, who volunteered to be our D.J. did a fantastic job as usual and Jona & The Jayhawks rocked the house.

It takes quite a bit of preparation to put these parties together, as I am sure most of you know. Lucky for me some of my pirate friends came by to help. One Eyed Willie and Capn' Drumsticks are ready to party!

Today was the first day of winter for me, I know, it's only fall but if the temperature drops below 70 summer is over as far as I'm concerned. Since I work outside and had to endure a little chill today, I couldn't help but look at the pictures from this past beach party. It actually warmed me up a bit. I look forward to throwing next years party, but first....Halloween!
