MISC Monday...

I've been a little low on blog fodder lately (hard to believe I know!) so I've decided to institute MISC Monday! What better way to kick things off than to steal a post from Sue over at Happy Meals and Happy Hour (with her permission of course!)...seriously people, she is one of the funniest people I've ever read!
I have to admit that I'm guilty of this fact, I'm planning a Silpada party next month! The difference is that I tell people NOT to buy anything unless they really want it...and I don't always buy when I go to a BuyCrap party...unless there's hardly anyone there...then I feel GUILT! Enjoy!

UGH. You know the invitation. Where you think it's a real party invite but - PSYCH! - it's a BuyCrap party.

Pampered Chef. Southern Living. Discovery Toys. PartyLite Candles. Cabi clothing. Longaberger Freakin' Baskets. My Step Sister-in-Law's Beaded Jewelry.

What you think your invitees are saying when they open the invite: "Ooooh!"
What your invitees are actually saying: "DARN!" ..not exactly Sue's choice of words!

Dude, seriously? I like you - but not enough to spend $19 on this:

Because I'm pretty sure my FINGER has been doing a good job up to this point.

And I don't need a $69 wrought iron anything. Everyone knows you can get anything you want in wrought iron at TJ Maxx for $11.00 Wrought iron mirror? Yes. Umbrella stand? Yes. Underwear? Sure: $11.00.

"But there's wine!" Yes, I know there's wine. And dip. And cheese, don't forget the cheese. But here's the thing:

Wine & cheese at MY house: $0.
Comfy couch & a new episode of Project Runway: $0
Not being the proud owner of a wrought-iron grape peeler: Priceless

stumbled over here from blog around the world...
This post is hilarious, my girlfriends and I have recently been in the middle of a "Who is having their Premiere Jewelry Party which month" debacle. We all politely buy a piece or two at one gals party and then host our own a month or so later...its vicious circle...i hate buycrap parties. The dip is usually pretty good though..hee hee
I might have to wonder back here.
Love your blog background - really cute!

I loved this post too! Sue is hilarious. Once I found her blog, I read it all the way to the end. And since she's new to blogging, it left me wanting more. Her sense of humor is rolling on the floor funny!
