gets bigger every time I do it..
Y'all KNOW that makes a lot more
Right? you care?
You just keep signing up and making
all kinds of comments
and you KNOW
I am going to throw some of those

I hope that I got everyone seated.
IF I missed you, please let me know!
I checked the names twice
but you know how it is with us blondes
(especially once our hair turns white)

Here's what we started with---

Seated at Table #1/BEAR IT AT THE TABLE
We have Kay G (who changed her mind when someone else sat down with her at a different table-)
Susie, Linda C & not to be the 
Linda LaCarte plopped herself down,
Cristina, Liz, 
Bobbie (whose hubby calls her TeddyBear--shhhhh-that might be a secret),
Kathy, Janet and Jane
(just so you know- Jane is here because she thinks the name sounds NAUGHTY...
Bear/Bare...ummm...Jane...never mind)
Jean- a little late but here at last..
Phyllis (Hi Phyllis-nice to see you),
Krishna, Tanna, Lauren, Kim, Candy, Carrie
Nancy (who wants the bears removed) & 
Judy (she wants black faced sheep)
Lordy- what a table that is--
Maybe Judy can bring some black paint and make the bears LOOK like sheep?

Table #2-BABY I'M BLUE
Sally, Bethany (who wanted to sit at another table but 
thought it looked too cold!)
Merle (she's from Down Under so may be standing on her head-not sure how that works),
Diane, Snowhite (yes you have a celebrity at the table)
and Sheila!

Cindy and Katie (who was afraid to offend someone so almost didn't sit anywhere)
Susan and Ellen (who always emails me on the side)
One of these days I am going to "out you", Ellen
AND...poor Debby Ray I put her at the wrong table so shove over girls-here she comes!

Moving along we have:
Shirley, Ricki, Patti, Penny,
Sugar- and everyone needs a little SUGAR at their table,
Laurie--now let me warn you- IF you sitting next to Laurie
her eyesight is not all that great (no secret) she talks about it-
BUT she may drink out of YOUR cup or just swig her own cup of
painter's water by mistake (instead of her tea)
Linda(ItsyBitsyLinda), Cecilia, 
Cathy-she FINALLY made up her mind,
Fran, AnnMarie, LaDonna, 
SueZK , Karen Ann,
Pam Kitty, Connie and sweet LV.

On we go:
Here you will find Sylvia, Debra, Gina, Sandi,
Carla, Roxy, LaDonna, Gert, Jan, Leslie, Connie
and I only see one real smart aleck-Missy.
Everyone else is pretty normal (it seems)
AND I had to move Julie over here, too,
because I seated her a the wrong table- duh...
AND I forgot poor Cheryl!!! so added her here...double duh.....

Shifting to 
Okay- so KayG WAS here and moved already...sheesh
Left are: Carol, Stacey, Lisa, Debbie(Lakehouse),
Amy, Karen, ckrut and Jettie.
Give Jettie a little extra space-she just had hip surgery. and for Lord's sake- DON'T BUMP HER!

Next up:

Sweet Jenn, Louise (my card making friend) Nonie,
Kimberly, Vee, Kris and 
Oh, Lordy-it is Ron and I just know he is bringing
RUM to pour in Kris's Diet Coke and that table
will be A MESS-trust me!

You will find-Nancy, Ellie, Dianna and Wendy.
They should have a nice conversation
because the table is not crowded full.
I love this table and, honestly, they are
 than most of us....
You ARE quiet, Nancy, Right?
I know the other three real well.


You might know that there are 
a couple of TROUBLEMAKERS here.
Tete likes the table but wants me to move it inside.
Hello.....Do I look like a moving company?
Adam likes the cold and so does Lauren,
Sweet sweet Rose, Gay and BJ...
Oh-and Bethany WANTED to sit here
but chickened out because of the cold.

So...I hope I didn't INSULT ANYONE

I guess I am going to have to make this
a monthly feature.
I have even more fun reading your comments
than you do playing along.

Guess I best post tonight being as it is
the last day of January!
Thanks for commenting and choosing.
I'll be back...
that's  a threat promise!

Debby Ray said...

Hey girl, you sat me at the wrong table...but that's OK...I'll party with anyone! :D

Nonnie said...

I posted earlier and it said it published, but I never saw it. So, here I am again. Looks like my pick was a good one and should be interesting with so many there, including your friend Missy.

Junkchiccottage said...

Oh my Table Number 7 will be the most fun table lol! Ron and I will be dancing on the table by the end of the party! Loved all of these tables and I would be honored to sit an any one of them. Happy New Week.

LV said...

At least, I did not have to sit by myself. Most of the things you share are fun. Once in awhile, folks gotta get sick tho.

At Rivercrest Cottage said...

Di, you're bad! It was fun to see who liked the specific tables. Don't think I could ever do frozen.

Tete said...

LOL and yes, you are a moving company...I hear about your tubbing things up all the time and dragging things here and there. I know you can do it...or...are you too old? Bwahahaha!

Cecilia said...

Haha, always fun to read. Thanks for the entertainment!

Chatty Crone said...

I love this - did I miss where you were sitting?

Anonymous said...

Lisa said...

Kay G moved? Well Im seated between Stacey and Debbie so it wasn’t me!
Table #6

AnnMarie aka Vintage Junkie aka NaNa said...

Lots of fun! Now if you could throw a HUGE party and actually make all of this happen in PERSON, that would be FUN!! Thanks for all the hard work putting this together....we deserve it!

coffeeontheporchwithme said...

Diana, you are so much fun! I do get excited when I see one of these posts from you. Thanks for getting us all seated. Are you hiring a caterer or making it all yourself ;) -Jenn

This N That said...

Who me? Smart Aleck? You know what they say about takes one to know one? And where are you sitting? You certainly had a good time with that. Really fun! You are amazing. Thanks for the entertainment. Xxoo. BTW..what are we having to eat?

Cozy Thyme Cottage said...

Yes, I am quiet. Until I get to know you! I don't do well in large groups so this table will fit my needs well! Nancy

Gert said...

This is always so much fun. Glad you’re having such a great turnout.

Vee said...

Thanks for the fun! 💕

Simply LKJ said...

While I will miss Ron's cocktail hour, I am thankful "I" wasn't called out as one of the trouble makers at my table ;-)

Rose L said...

A man at the table (Adam) wow! I enjoy a little chill to remind me I am still alive and lively!!

Blondie's Journal said...

These are such fun posts, Diana. I really love #5. Just feeling a little blingy as I look at my Christmas Decor not yet taken down. ;-D

krishna said...

I suppose I'm as NORMAL as I can be! Love the ladies I'm with

Liz@ HomeandGardeningWithLiz said...

Looks like I would be in good company! 😉

Penny from Enjoying The Simple Things said...

Fun! Yes, keep doing this!

bobbie said...

Welcome, table-mates! Nope, Diana ~ the "TeddyBear" nickname isn't a secret at all! :-)

bobbie said...

PS ~ Thank you for putting this all together, Diana! A big YES to a monthly "dinner party"!!

Kim said...

Thank you for seating me at my desired table...but...I must confess that I'm that guest that table hops all night long. So I can't promise to stay put. I need to see and say hi to everyone at every table and I usually end up eating one course at each one of them. My husband loves it. He gets quiet time and my meal! ;) Fun post!!

Carla from The River said...

As always, fun, fun, fun .. just what the doctor ordered. ;-)

Sally said...

You are a trip, Diana. I love this, and now I'm thinking I made the wrong choice! :)


Julie's Creative Lifestyle said...

This was so much fun you silly blonde, you sat me at the wrong table - table #4 but that is ok. I was supposed to sit at table #5!! Us blondes can be like that sometimes! LOL!!
Hugs, Julie xo

ckrut said...

This is always so much fun! This is ckrut at Table #6. I'm a Cindy also. I just know I'd have fun with my tablemates and everyone else. And I promise not to take those little red birdies, although I am tempted!

cards4ubylouise and other treasures said...

Oh look...I am not anonymous anymore....These parties are always fun!!!

Stephanie said...

Oh Diana, what a fabulous post! I couldn't help but smile and giggle. You have a way of making everyone happy.

Hugs and blessings to you!

Kay G. said...

Diana, HA HA HA!!!!
I promise to stick with my first choice NEXT TIME!
Thanks for BEARING with me! LOL!

Pam said...

That is a lot of work getting all that together and seating everyone....and your blonde shined through, I was supposed to be on table 4! haha....thats okay, cause I just went and pushed my way in, they had to make room for me! hahaha...great job.

Ricki Treleaven said...

Ha! I'll sit by Laurie, because I almost took a swig of my watercolor water about an hour ago! GAH!

Karen @ Beatrice Euphemie said...

Haha - that was fun - I didn't make it to the party on time, but it sure was fun coming in late when everyone was feeling good :) xx K

Have a Daily Cup of Mrs. Olson said...

Well, I missed out on this one; but always enjoy them! Fun reading this, and I can see that it was alot of work for you.

Cheryl @ TFD said...

This was a fun post even if you did leave me out and I really dislike missing out on a good dinner! I chose No. 5 but I know that this was a lot of work so I'm not going to be too unhappy I missed the dinner party. :) And, I didn't go back and check, but maybe my comment didn't publish...have had a few problems with that lately here and there. xx Cheryl

Cristina Garay said...

hehe what a party!!! We all had lots of fun! :D

Cathy @ My 1929 Charmer said...

Well it seems like I'm sitting with a great group of women (just being polite). But the reason, after a hard time deciding, is that with the flowers so tall I wouldn't have to coverse with the women on the other side. Then I would sit on an end and only have to worry about the person sitting next to me. This all works very well for me since I suffer from PTSD I got 4 years ago and really dont't feel comfortable in crowds....which means I wouldn't be talkin to very many other women. Then when I left they would tell me how rude I was...who care...I finally picked a number. Don't go to my blog today wait until'll be happier!

Marilyn @ MountainTopSpice said...

Well, here is another latecomer to this fun party! I choose table #2, because I absolutely love the soft blues of this table... always so fun to try to pick a table, but really I'd be glad to sit at any table with any of these lovely ladies, it would be a treat :)
