Newbie party started!

Good day, or evening depending where you are! 
We are here today!
 As I was hoping we would be,
 because I have some unfinished business to take care of..not sure what it is, but I just know it is something.
Yesterday in the midst of our continuing clean up, I decided it was a good day for a little impromptu end of the world party.  So I had Alex invite some his friends over for pizza and ping pong, and I also invited some of our friends over just for munchies and drinks.

FUN, FUN, FUN...those are always the best parties, the ones not planned.
I am just sharing  some pictures of clean up, our anniversary, and my pretty roses.
I have not much creative to share with you these days...
I see a slow down in the future, which is fine, perhaps that will give me more time to actually be creative and come up with some fun stuff for you.
Newbie parties will continue throughout the summer...those are a MUST!
Date night for our Anniversary celebration.
 It was so FANTASTIC! We went to Zinks in Charlotte, NC. Great meal, great conversation, and a lot of laughter. 
Love you Mike! XO

Beautiful roses, I love this color.
The chips and guac dip looked so pretty next to the roses.

Mike working hard in the yard...
Jack helping Mike..I know Jack is in desperate need of a haircut..the boy loves his hair.
Did a little smores last night with the kids...
This is what it looked like in the morning...
And this is what it looked like by the afternoon.
We never did get to planting new trees yet.
Enjoy the Newbie party.

I think your end of the world party sounds wonderful!! Impromptu parties are the best kind, I think!!
My 11 year old has curly hair, and it is SOOOO overgrown!!! But, like yours, he loves his hair! Must be the style, but I think they look so cute!!
Happy Anniversary!!

Hi there! Thanks for hosting the party. If there is a way to go back into a post that has already been posted and add a link, I'm unaware of it. I did, however, add your button and link to my "Link Parties" page as soon as I linked up to your party.

First of all, congrats on your anniversary.
Second, you look gorgeous with the new haircut!
Third, I would like to thank you for hosting the Newbie Parties! I have participated a lot of times, and have "met" so many interesting and inspiring individuals, it's amazing! Today I am taking part with my first DIY home decor post, nothing fancy like you or the other lovely ladies do, simple things, that brought a new air in our home this spring.
Well, that's from me, I wish you a happy start to the new week.

Great photos! You and Mike look adorable ~ and I'm so glad you had fun. "Dates" are so important I think ~ adult time that is so precious in a relationship. It's a great example to set for kids too. The roses are exqusite ~ love the color! Jack's hair is just as cute as yours...I don't blame him for not wanting it cut. :-) You guys did a wonderful job on the clean up. Have a great week my friend!

Keep the faith, Debbie! I know those comment confirmations drive you nuts, but hosting a newbie party probably means you get more than your share of people who haven't figured that out yet.....We new bloggers of the world appreciate your hosting parties just for us to get to know our blogging bros and sistas!

Hello Debbie,

Happy Belated Anniversary! What a lovely photo of you and Mike on your anniversary date night. Those are my favorite color roses also. I prefer roses in the yellow to salmon color range or white. No red roses for me!

I love your fire pit. What a great place to relax with family and friends.

I think Jack looks adorable! I remember when my boys went through the long hair phase. My oldest had hair longer than Jack's. It drove me nuts, but I was selective in what battles I chose and that was one I decided was not worth the battle.
