Jungle Madness…while the other Monkeys are away…

Posted by at Jul 19, 2013 6:00 am

So Janelle, Carly & Leslie are all in Atlanta, partying it up big without me.  But I refuse to be depressed!  Instead, we’re going to have our own celebration here in the jungle!

Price of admission to this hot shindig?

Tell me…What’s the one thing you have to have or else it’s not a real party.

For me?  Tequila.  No, I’m joking.  I don’t always have to drink to have a party.  But I do like to have something sweet.  A drink, a dessert, a fancy chocolate…heck, I’ll take a Hershey bar if that’s all I can get.  (That’s actually a treat because I happen to love Hershey bars).

What about you?

One person wins a $25 gift card to Amazon or Barnes & Noble!

    A sweet treat is a must. Cake, cupcake, or candy but there MUST be something sweet. Of course you must have something to drink. (Strawberry margaritas anyone)

    :woot: First a good crowd, chips & dips to nibble, cold drinks, and room to move & talk (no chairs please). Nice to end with coffee and small desserts. :woot:

    Christine H says:

    To make a party great you first have to have a fun group of people. The people make the party I think. I love to talk. The more people I can talk to the better, but I do expect something good to eat too, even if it’s only a nibble of something delicious. lol

    Thanks for the opportunity to win!!

    Donna M says:

    I’m not sure it is any one thing but the combination of good friends and/or family, good food, drinks and for me I love dessert! Preferably chocolate. Drinks don’t have to be alcoholic :cocktail: but that does seem to put people more at ease. I do not like a party where people get too carried away with drinking. Fun subject, thanks.

    I’m so sorry you didn’t get to go to RWA but sometimes it just goes that way. :flowerforyou: to keep you cheerful.

    Everyone enjoy the weekend. :flagwave: :monkey2: :flagwave: :monkey2: :flagwave: :monkey2: :flagwave: :monkey2:
