And we proved it when we gathered a bunch of the gang down at the ocean to watch THE NINE LIVES OF CHRISTMAS on Hallmark November 8th. By the way, I'm happy to announce that the movie did really well. Obviously, many of us love movies about true love and kitty cats!
We did get confused regarding the time and were already to watch the show life at 8 p.m. only to learn it had already aired. Fortunately, one of us had recorded us, so we grabbed our popcorn, pop, and movie candy and quickly changed locations. It was like a progressive party... only the food moved with us!
So, a big thanks to my pal Wilma, who is fabulous and forever young at heart. Ah, the joy of girlfriends. And who did you watch the movie with?
Okay, so we don't live in Hollywood. That doesn't mean we can't celebrate the upcoming airing of "The Nine Lives of Christmas" based on my novel of the same name. And celebrate we did with back to back red carpet parties. One we invited the guys. The other was just the girls. Both were fabulous fun!
In addition to enjoying the movie we made a few screen tests just to see who might be good Hollywood material. I've posted some of them on my Facebook Like page, so I hope you'll check them out.
Naturally, we dressed to the "nines", as you can see by the picture above. There I am, modeling my fabulous Goodwill find! And I wasn't the only one. Several of us girls were sporting fun thrift store bargains. We've already decided if we get another movie adventure the future we're going to do a gown shopping day and caravan from thrift store to thrift store.
The food was wonderful, too, and included a special appetizer my pal Elizabeth Schultz tells me is actually served as Oscar parties. All I can say to that is, it was certainly a hit at our party (which is why I'm posting it on the recipes page).
The party fun ended way too soon. Then, as you can see by the picture below, it was time for Cinderella to get back to work and clean up. Fortunately, she had a lot of friends (and her lovely daughter) who stayed behind to help.
This weekend I'll be at a viewing party with my girlfriends down at the ocean. We're having a pajama party and will be eating all kinds of yummy movie food. And I know several of my friends and readers will be hosting viewing parties around the country as well. So, for those of you who are going to be gathering to enjoy the holiday fun, happy viewing!
