-Outdoor- White Elephant Martini Bingo

Yessir! For the first time ever, Martini Bingo was held outside on our patio! All our prayers and dances to hold off bad weather worked in spades - we simply couldn't have asked for better.

And once again, our Martini Bingo enthusiasts made the evening wonderful. It's a riot to look up from the Bingo tumbler and see all our friends trying to focus on their cards without spilling! You guys bring great stuff as well - what was that alligator thing? Someone said it was a birdfeeder? A special tip of the hat to Lissa Sharp for sharing her decadent Lemon Drop recipe. --No less than 4 tsp. of sugar in the 6 oz. glass!!!!--

Here are some photos of the event:

We worked hard to light up the patio!


Ray, Bill, Ann-Marie, and Lauralyn share a laugh!


Ash takes a turn a callin'.


Can you believe it? Rob won the Zippy round AGAIN!


This year's winner of the pot: Toni Marie! Yay!


Tipsy hosts!


Very special THANK YOU to my sister, Jen, who helped setup in the frantic hours beforehand, AND helped clean up in the tipsy afterhours. Couldn't have done it without you!

See ya'll next time!
