Pool Party HNT

Saturday, Lori and I hosted a pool party for our blogger friends. I sent out open invitations starting a year ago, but by the time the pool party came around, people that said they would come or at least try to come, sent their regrets. Some even the same day.

Oh well, their loss, because they missed a hell of a good time!

Os was the first to show, but was alone. We expected him to bring ~M, but that morning she woke up in severe pain, which put her in the hospital. She had a kidney stone, which they zapped, so she was able to come home the next day. Missed you ~M!

Os, Lori and I sat in my living room for a while catching up and then I gave him a tour of the recent work I had done inside.

Os surprised us with the 'Official Os Shirt'. Later we all took pictures with the shirt.

Then we went outside to check out the work that I done last year.

I'm pretty sure there was a bit of grill envy.

Everyone loves the waterfall. The sound of the water flowing into the pool is so relaxing.

It was time for some snacks, so we sat at the patio table enjoying the foods Lori had prepared.

A little while later, Os said he had to get something from his car and returned with Shizzle and her pup. What a great surprise.

Even if no one else showed up, this made my day. I've "known" Shizzle for many years via blogs and it was a pleasure to finally get to meet her.

We all chatted some more then had some lunch also prepared by Lori. Everyone agreed that her pulled pork was excellent! Thanks baby, the food was great!

Time for a swim!

EDIT: Here are the new pictures Os sent me this week.


We frolicked in the pool for a while,
then all came out to take pictures with the Os Shirt.


Be sure to come back next week for "Pool Party HNT part 2".

You won't be sorry!

We had more surprise guests,

ate more great food,

more swimming,

and then the bathing suits came off!
