Okay gang. I want everyone on their best behavior today. We have some new guests arriving any minute. Some of them are new to my neck of the woods, and I really want to leave a good first impression. As you know, I did some re-decorating on the sidebar last week to clear the clutter for them. Today, I did some tidying up and prepared some refreshments. I hope they like diet coke with lemon as much as I do. If not, I do have my next favorite drink, Perrier, stocked in the wine fridge. Oh yes, we will be serving wine for the early evening and evening guests. And, if they prefer beer, soda, or lemonade, well, that is ice cold and waiting for them, too. As for food, I have prepared some hummus and pita wedges, an artichoke dip in a bread bowl, and a platter of brie and gouda with crackers. I've also decided to have a sit down dinner which will include regency beef tenderloin, out-of-this-world-scalloped potatoes (both from Southern Living) and blue cheese walnut spinach salad (from Rachael Ray). Molten chocolate lava cakes will be served for dessert courtesy of Southern Living as well. I want everyone to meet and greet the new guests with all the graciousness you have extended me since landing on my little slice of the blogosphere. Oh, gee, I wonder if I have time to go get a new outfit and shoes. Probably not. At least I got my hair restored to its natural color a couple of weeks ago. And, I've been moisturizing.
Ok girls, go pretty up because all the Saucy SITStas will be arriving any minute.
Oh, oh, and one last thing, don't forget to sign the guest book.
PS. I forgot to let you know which rooms my guests will be visiting for the day. Please be sure to mingle in and around them at your leisure.
No More Freakin' Solicitors, Please!
