What I do when I’m not writing…

Well first I hold down a more-than-full-time job as a manager of a nightclub in Denver which keeps me jumping most of the time. I also like to travel and go camping when I can. And I love to throw parties. Give me a reason and I’ll give you a party. Just this past weekend, along with my sisters, Christine and BetteRose, I hosted a send-off party for my niece Mechelle, an actress who is on her way to Hollywood.

Of course the theme of the party was Hollywood/Movies so we had all of the usual trimmings one would expect of this theme including red carpet for guests to arrive upon, stars and twinkly lights strung about, movie soundtracks playing in the background and cocktails with names like Million Dollar Baby, The Odd Couple and Pretty Women (to name a few).  Here are a few snaps from the evening. Enjoy!

We transformed our gazebo into a step-and-repeat for photo ops.

Part of the fun of having a themed party is naming the cocktails!

In the food category, these dogs in tuxes created quite a buzz.
