So-wondering now IF I missed anyone but wondering WHO I missed!  lol

I am sure you all will let me know!

Will be back in a day or so with an update on hubby's health. I had originally tagged it onto the end of my PickYourFavoriteTable post but deleted it because I wanted the table choice to be FUN and not have anyone worried about anything.  Thank you all for asking and commenting anyway on John's health.

Thanks again for playing along.

It is worth the work for all the fun!

And Poor #1 that got 



Well, baby, sometimes you got it and

sometimes you don't!

Although I did think that

Tom the Backroads Traveler

might find it plain enough to 

sit down...Nope!

Laurie said...

Great job! You really put your all into bringing these fun posts, thank you lovely lady, keeping you and John in my prayers

Sandra said...

Pheew I really glad to see that nobody picked number one because I would really be worried about that person and now I'm worried about the person that created it haha. It would be okay to put something on here for me to worry about because I already worry all the time anyway and I could just add it to my list of worries. I'm a little disappointed that I don't know anybody at my table and that my best friends are at other tables and none of them are sitting at the table together

Debra She Who Seeks said...

Poor Table #1 -- just too plain and cardboard-y looking, I guess!

~Lavender Dreamer~ said...

I would have joined Tom if he sat there but that's the only way! lol And we are all very concerned about John and keep him in our prayers. Take care and thanks for the fun! We'll wear matching polka dots I promise! Hugs!

Susie said...

Hi Diana, I sure like my table mates. :) When you mentioned 18 blessing, yes, I had 4 sisters and 6 brothers. You know what he asked me?? "Did your mother have a maid to help out?" What? I said, "yes, me and my sisters !" LOL In a big family the oldest become the built-in babysitters. Praying for all of you...stay warm ! Blessings, xoxo,love you, Susie

Susie said...

Diana, part of my comment was deleted. Yikes. Haha, Susie
p.s. you can delete the whole thing.

Julie's Creative Lifestyle said...

That was fun to see who picked the tables and poor table #1, just so plain! LOL. Hope you have a happy Valentine's Day!

Catherine said...

Poor table 1 nobody chose it...

I'm mostly known as 'MA' said...

As this is the only Valentine Party I'll be attending, I'm thankful you decided to do this. It'll be loads of fun ! Thanks always for a good time reading your blog.

Penny from Enjoying The Simple Things said...

I was worried that the Tulips table for two would just be me! Glad others joined me. xo

jack69 said...

Thanks for all the work. We were happy to have sailors and pirates at our table, even if the pirate only came for desert. LOL
Prayers for the hubby and you as well. Life is good, even with the curves, God is good.
Love from North Carolina

Thank you, Sweetpea, for the FIRST and ONLY invitation to lunch I've been able to accept this year! Not just THIS year, but approximately by=the-calendar a pure-Dee YEAR ago since I've been out of the house except to garb/mask/cover/suit up like a knight-turned-surgeon and whisk into and out of wherever I have to go.

I would have hated to miss any of your soirees, though---they're special in so many ways. Only three at "our" table. Guess we can play Scrabble with the conversation hearts, and wear the extra bows for ties and head-bands. And I'm not amazed that no one picked #1. It looks like Martha Stewart's first attempt at Arts and Crafts at summer camp---when she was ten, and the only supplies came from the pantry, the grocery delivery, and the NIBROC dispenser in the outhouse. She DOES love her some raffia and brown paper.

Happy Valentine's Day, Sweetpea!

Lorrie said...

Thanks for the Valentine's Day fun!

Junkchiccottage said...

Poor Number #1!!!! This was fun as always sweet friend. Have a good Valentine's Day this weekend. xoxo

Terri D said...

Looks like I am in good company! Really funny that no one wanted #1. Thanks, always, for the fun, Diana!! xo

Jenny the Pirate said...

Hahaaaaa yep that first one was a dud. BUT I sure hope that at Table #7 we are having chocolate cake with chocolate frosting for dessert! Just a suggestion! I'm sure that LindaC, Gert, Woody, Bonnie, Ann, Mevely, Jack & Sherry, and Dawn & Louise will agree! If they don't, they walk the plank. Aaarrgghhh xoxo

bobbie said...

Thank you for the invite, dear Lady!j And thank you for all your work on this ~
Huge hugs going out for you & John ~

Ginny Hartzler said...

Oh gosh, sounds like maybe your news will not be good!! I am anxiously waiting...

Ann said...

Well that's kind of sad that no one liked #1. No love for that table. Always a fun time doing these.

Carol said...

How I wish I would have read the original post and voted on these. I must say that the others are much nicer than number 1, but there is something really simple about it and I do like it. I can't say that I would have chosen it either, but sometimes simple is much better.

This N That said...

Lol.. I almost picked number one...I really like it but decided it wasn’t very Valentiney...uhoh it doesn’t sound like no news is good news... you are in my thoughts. Miss you. Hugs

cloches and lavender said...

These are always fun. Thanks for always doing them. Prayers for you and John.


Cecilia said...

Well you missed me..I picked number four. Maybe that was the day things weren't working on my computer. No big deal. I'll gate crash,
Table one looks like kindergarteners decorated it, lol.
Hope you are doing well and staying warm. We are freezing...sleet and ice. Yuck.

Hugs, Cecilia

Kim said...

Great table seatings! Always fun to see who sits where...but poor number one doesn’t have a valentine. 😉❤️

Henny Penny said...

Well I missed all this. Glad you did show Table #1 again. I couldn't imagine how it how it looked to get no votes at all. No, I would not have picked it either. Funny how you just don't feel anything at all when you look at #1. :) Thanks Dianna

Theresa said...

Can't wait to sit with all of these lovelies and chat:) Enjoy your day, prayers for your Hubby and YOU!

Wild Oak Designs said...

I think neutral and nice just reminds of Covid!! ugh....are we there yet???
It has infiltrated everything in our life...and I want normal back....
anyway...I hope your husband will be ok....prayers.
And you, though we have never met...are a dear friend.
Hang in there.....

Carrie @ Cottage Cozy said...

#2 Pink Roses would be my pick ♥

CHERI said...

I can't imagine anyone liking #1!!! I think I'm in some good company. Thanks for always doing much fun. And can't wait to hear about your hubby. Hope it's good news.

Janie Junebug said...

You're back! I wish I'd noticed sooner so I could have chosen a table. I guess I'll design my own instead. I'll put a red rose between my teeth and me on the table, awaiting my Valentine. When he doesn't show up because he doesn't exist, I'll put some mac and cheese on a plate and watch a nice, romantic movie. I agree that #1 is bland.


Doris said...

Aww, so glad there are others that love roses as much as I do ♥ And as for that no color table...there is a place for all neutral but Valentine's is not it! But then I'm one that loves color.
Hope you are having a great day. Happy Valentine's to you and you hubby!

Carla from The River said...

Happy Valentine's Day my dear friend!
I always enjoy the table game.
Stay snug as a bug!!!

Lisa said...

Number one was just too papery. But I assume with a few crayons and markers, it could have been a fun table after all.

Lowcarb team member said...

Many thanks for all your hard work, these are such fun posts :)
Poor table 1 though, nobody chose it!

Keeping you and hubby in my thoughts and prayers.

All the best Jan
