First, I have a VERY exciting announcement for you. The fabulously talented and super sweet Denise ( Peanutbee on SCS) will be joining The Dream Team in November! Woo hoo! If you aren't already familiar with Denise, you MUST visit her blog, The Paper Landscaper . Denise is currently a member of the Dirty Dozen at Splitcoast. She and her husband of 10 years live in Southeastern Pennsylvania and are the proud parents of two sweet little girls, fondly nicknamed Peanut and Bee.
Welcome, Denise! I am thrilled that you will be joining the already awesome Dream Team, and I can't wait for you to get started! :-)
Today is the last day you can register for one of the Dreamy Treats. I am giving away a C-45 Monogram Stamper to one lucky winner. And since my counter went over 100,000 hits, I am also going to give away a Curlz Font and Border Kit . This is your fourth and last chance to register...so be sure not to miss out! I will post the two lucky winners tomorrow night. Keep your fingers crossed that Ike doesn't take away my Internet connection! The winds have really picked up here in the last hour or so!
Okay....because MANY of you asked, I'm going to give you a few details about *the date*. Gosh, I'm sure glad he doesn't read my blog! LOL!
Since I didn't receive any counsel from Paperlicious I had to wing it. I finally settled on what to wear. It was a scoop neck top with a matching short skirt. I chose that because I have big boobs, and am always complimented on my legs. Mind you, all the parts in between leave a lot to be desired! I wore my favorite Sex In The City heels, and felt as if I was pretty presentable. I also made sure I smelled really good. Men tend to like that, as I best recall.
He arrived on time. So far, so good. The first "issue" was that he had changed his mind about where we should go to dinner. He wanted Chinese food, and asked me if that was okay. It wasn't. Then he suggested Italian food, and I agreed. He opened my doors, and did all the right things to show me he is a gentleman. I like that, and quite frankly it's required so far as I'm concerned.
Before we left for the restaurant he asked for a tour of the house. Fortunately I had made my bed that morning and didn't have any dirty underwear laying on the floor! When we got to my studio I heard him gasp. I could tell he hadn't a clue even before he asked. I showed him a card I made recently, then showed him the rubber stamp I used to make it. His reply was, "Well I'll be damned!" What does that tell you???
The restaurant was quiet and nice. We have many friends in common, so we had a lot to talk about. He brought me up to date on what's going on with many of them that I haven't seen in a while. Then the subject of politics came up, so I asked him what he thought about the Presidential race and Sarah Palin. It kinda went downhill there for a bit!
When we left the restaurant he took me to his house to show me his collection of antique cars. He has two separate garages that are about 4,500 sq ft EACH, and they are filled with probably 35-40 antique cars, and 3 Harleys. There is NO TELLING how much all that cost, nor what it's worth. And I thought MY hobby was expensive!
He is a big Harley Davidson guy, so I asked why he has three Harleys. He replied that if one is good, two is better...and three is perfect. He said the next time we go out he would like to pick me up on one of them. ARE YOU KIDDING ME????? I have been behind a Harley before and seen the butt of the woman riding on the back. Even the skinny girls butts look huge sitting on those things! I don't EVEN think I need to expose mine like that! And do you know what those helmets do to your hair?
All things considered, it was a nice evening. Good company, good conversation (except for the Palin thing), and a great meal.
Will I ever hear from him again? Who knows! Men can be fickle.
Thanks for stopping by! I will be back tomorrow night (Ike willing) with the two winners!
