Well, it’s Show & Tell Tuesday…on a Monday.
Tomorrow, Andrea is hosting her bi-monthly link-up and the topic is “what five people would you invite to a dinner party at your house?”…but, I’m blogging about this tomorrow…
…how seven years ago tomorrow, this sweet girl was born.
So, I’m sharing my dinner party guests with you today.
Okay…I thought long and hard about who I would want to come to my party. This is a tough decision friends! I want this party to be so much fun :). Here’s what I concluded:
1. Everyone needed to be currently living (it just simplified things).
2. Everyone needed to be fun (I don’t want boring people at my party!).
3. Everyone needed to get along with everyone else (no Real Housewives party at my house!).
4. Everyone needed to be good eaters…I don’t know for a fact that these people are good eaters (as I do not know them), but I’m hoping that they are.
5. When in doubt, invite a talk show host…or three…they’re good with awkward moments, funny lines and keeping the conversation flowing.
Such a tough guest list to come up with ;).
After much deliberation and prayer (okay, maybe I didn’t pray about it), here is who I’m inviting to my dinner party…
Obviously, I would invite Michael Buble. Every time I’ve seen him in concert or on a talk show, he’s been really funny and seems easy to talk to. (Plus, I’m
very kind of obsessed with him.) I would also ask him nicely to sing while he’s at my house. Ask/beg/plead…you know, hopefully, I’d get a song or two or fifteen out of him.
And…it’s super convenient to invite Buble because he’s friends with my second guest…
Oh Jimmy Fallon, how I love thee. Who doesn’t love Jimmy Fallon? He seems so sweet, sincere, funny and charming all in one. I think he would be a blast at a dinner party. Whenever there was an awkward moment, I can see him filling it quite nicely.
And again, since he knows my third guest, they should get along swimmingly at my party…
Ahhh…the lovely Kelly Ripa. I feel like she would do a great job talking with my other guests, she would keep the conversation light and yet super funny at the same time…and then I think we could bond over motherhood and whatnot. Plus, this would give me an opportunity to tell her how much I love her shorter hair :). And side note: in the above picture, she’s wearing plaid with sequins…I mean, I could not love that more.
And…Kelly knows my fourth guest too…
It begins and ends with Oprah in my opinion. No matter what party I’m having…even if I’m only allowed to invite one guest, Oprah is the one. I love Oprah. I miss Oprah. My 4:00 in the afternoons haven’t been the same since she left daytime TV. Oprah is one of my favorite people on earth. Yes. Oprah, yes.
And since Oprah knows everyone, she would be easy to include at my party…however, it’s even better that she knows my fifth guest…
Shonda Rhimes is invited to my party for many reasons (she seems super sharp, witty, funny, smart and lovable). That being said, she needs to come with a notepad and pen because I have a few notes for her about her TV shows. Let’s start with, why did you kill off Patrick Dempsey? No really, why? Second, how is How to Get Away with Murder going in your opinion? I keep watching…and yet, I’m confused. I’m going to need her to walk me through that. And finally, kill Jake. She and I will repeat that phrase over and over and over throughout the entire night. Kill Jake, kill Jake, kill Jake. Intermittently, we’ll throw a Team Fitz, Team Fitz, Team Fitz in the works. By the time the night is over, she and I will have written the series finale for Scandal and it’s going to be brilliant :).
So that’s it! These are my guests…
…what a good lookin’ group I have! Funny, smart, talkative, and in control of the outcome of my favorite TV show…yup, I invited a good group!
Who would you invite? If you could invite anyone to your house for a dinner party (living or not), who would it be? Comment and let me know!
