lots to do, lots to do…

Well Mr. Miller turns 40 in a week and we have lots to do around here.  I was planning a surprise “Pirate Looks at 40” party but he found out about it.  OH we are still having the party but now his wife or should I say “the woman to blame…” has a few tricks up her sleeve for Saturdays festivities.

I have about 80 people coming to a Margaritaville Party in our backyard.  Mr. Miller is feverishly finishing the great project of 2010 and I might say it looks amazing.  I am busy making all the napkins today.  I found 2 twin flat sheets at Wal Mart for $3 a piece and was able to get 44 napkins out of each.  My lovah is working overtime on finishing these.


Mimi helping me on Sunday with some of the errands.  We found Tiki torches to line the walkway to the “Tiki Bar” for $1.49 at Party America.  Can’t beat that price.

Did I forget to mention that I had a tooth pulled yesterday on top of everything?  So sorry I was a little out of commission yesterday.   Leave it to me to cram a lot into one week.

The Deacon, Pops, Grampie and Grandma will fly in on Friday and I already have their to do lists.  Mimi and Poppa will arrive on Saturday with my Key Lime Tarts and the Potato Salad.  Aunt Erika and Uncle Randy will get here Saturday to help transform the backyard into the “Tiki Bar”.  All of this will be done by 5 pm because well you know the song, “It’s 5 o’clock Somewhere” and they are coming to Margaritaville for Cheeseburgers in Paradise and to Blow out their Flip Flops.

It will be a great time, now just to get everything done!


  1. Awesome! Love your theme! Wishing Mr. Miller an early Happy 40th!

  2. And I need to add...Sorry about your tooth..I hope you're feeling well!
