Thursday Thirteen

Thirteen Things I have done to prepare for hubby’s 30th birthday-Magnum P.I.-themed party this saturday

1. made cool hawiian style invites

2. downloaded the theme song from magum p.i. so i can have it play at the front gate when the guests arrive

3. bought fake leis so everyone can get leid

4. bought water guns that people can shoot at each other. because after all, magnum had a gun.

5. bought toothpicks with fabric hibiscus flowers for the appetizers. we’re going to have sausage and pineapple skewers.

6. bought 2 large somewhat sparkily palm trees for decoration

7. bought several stuffed parrots for decoration

8. bought a replica mini ferrari just like the one magnum drove

9. bought a replica mini island hoppers helicopter just like the one t.c. flew

10. did a huge costo run to get all the burger and hot dog fixins. plus all the beverages.

11. ordered a delicious fruit cake from the local bakery

12. rented some furniture; 20 chairs and 6 tables and 6 ocean blue tablecloths

13. enlisted several friends to help with things like rolling plastic-ware into napkins, picking up rental furniture and picking up the cake

14. calmed down my mil numerous times because she has gone freaking psycho about this party, even though all she is doing is providing the location.
