(the outlaws aren't going) (that's ok, b/c I don't feel like dressing up today!) The open house is for people who were their neighbors when they lived at home w/ their parents. Cheers to 50 years!!

I am excited - I just planned a "60th birthday bike ride & dinner" for my brother who passed away last year. He would be 60 on Wednesday - Sept. 18th. He was a big bike (bicycle) rider! (also motorcycle, but that's another story...lol) I texted all my brother/sister/nieces/nephews/parents & invited them to our trailer at the lake Wed night & they will have to pay $$$ (donate whatever they want) to ride the bike path & dinner after - the $$$ will go to Mike's Scholarship fund at WSU! I am making a BBQ Chicken Lasagna (they will be guinea pigs) & I'm not sure what else. (pending what everyone brings) It will probably take more than 1 pan of lasagna, so I will make another type of lasagna too - maybe buffalo chicken or Mexican lasagna or just plain ol lasagna - or maybe spaghetti?!? I'm really looking fwd to it. And I told them if the weather is good & anyone wants to stick around, we'll have movie night - watching a movie on the big screen!! YAY!!! AND I think I'll use a vacation Wednesday too - early morning walk, coffee on the patio, then I'll start cooking! Who else is coming???


I'm off to read posts...I hope you are all having a GREAT weekend!!!!

What a lovely idea in memory of your brother hope its s good night

last batch of icing mixed, it has to sit for at least 2 hours before I can use it.
So the last tier will be done an in the freezer before I go to bed tonight.
Starting to rain now, looks like we will get lots of it tonight.
