There is nothing wrong with a buffet of desserts from Costco (they were actually quite delicious). However, if you are paying a caterer for a homemade spread, it's entirely unacceptable.
When you throw parties, there are always hiccups and issues to be resolved. You learn from them and move on. The difficult part for me was that my husband was pointing out and highlighting every wrong turn. That's why I pinched him.
Sadly, some of the most fun moments of the party didn't make it to the screen. I had a "flip book" station -- which was so fun! (You can see pictures at Bravotv.com). Later my kids came in to say goodnight (They made flip books too!) They were so cute and so happy to see everyone.
Many of you inquired about the framed records and paraphernalia on the walls in our rec room. It's all from my brother-in-law, Kevin DuBrow. Terry's late brother was the lead singer of the '80s band Quiet Riot.
We are very proud of his accomplishments and thought it would be a cool homage to Kevin. So I reframed a bunch of his awards and pictures and hung them up with a few of his prized guitars.
