Dinner Party


Last week, a good real life and blogging buddy of mine came into the office where we work. Jill had heard on the radio a discussion between the Morning Hot Tub on the local station, 89.9. They were deciding and explaining their choices of dinner guests. If they could choose 4 people to have dinner with, who would it be. The catcher? They must be alive!

This got me thinking. A few of my choices I knew right away. They were people that I felt would make amazing company throughout dinner. Jill shared on her blog last week who her choices were and I thought I would do the same.

1. The first person that came to mind was Kate Middleton.

Kate Middleton

I’ve always been fascinated by the Royal family but I think that if I were to have an actual Royal (like William or the Queen) that I would feel very shy and intimated. I find that Kate has a more relaxed and down to earth spirit about her. I believe she would have a ton of fun Royal stories to share and to laugh at. I would love to tell her how much I enjoyed spending the VERY early morning watching her wedding on T.V and then celebrating it at work with a champagne toast. I’d also like to tell her that my going away dress for my wedding was inspired by her navy lace dress. Of course, mine was a cheap knock off but I still idolize her style.

2. The next person I would invite is Michelle Obama.

This one may come to a surprise to some of you. Why would I pick the first lady? I have always had an interest in politics but inviting the President himself seems like it would be a bore. I have always thought Michelle seemed to be very fun, kind and charitable. I think she would add some very interesting conversation to the table. I don’t find her the least bit stuck up. Again, I have always idolized her personal style. I also agree with and I’m  interested in some of the things that she is so passionate about. Like, her campaign on ending child obesity in the states. Plus, what’s a dinner party without some political talk?

3. The next person was inspired by a choice made by a radio host. As soon as I had heard it I had to agree. Ellen Degeneres would made an amazing dinner party guest.


Every one needs that person at a party that can talk and break the ice. Especially, when you get a group of people together that don’t really know each other. But, I don’t think she would just be the comedy relief. I also think she would have so much to add to the conversation! She is a very strong, smart and caring woman. There are so many charities that she supports and advocates for. She really does seem like one of those people that can get along with just about everyone. A perfect dinner party guest!

4. This last choice is the biggest surprise to most. It’s no body famous. In fact, I hardly know this person myself. I don’t have a picture of him (yes, the only man of the group) and I have never spoken to him either.

My Uncle Jimmy (James)

My mother’s birth mother died when she was really young. When she died she left behind 4 very small children. My mom was the oldest, then there as Jimmy, Debbie and Pam. Pam died as a young woman leaving Debbie and Jimmy as living siblings. I am very close to my Auntie Debbie and her children (Hi Stacy! Hi Shan! Hi Adam! Except he doesn’t have a blog, ha ha!). Uncle Jimmy left the area where we live when my brother was small. I might have been born but that fact is unclear. So, I have no memory of him at all.

I have heard that he isn’t the greatest of characters. And truthfully, that doesn’t mean anything to me. I’d like to meet him for myself before I make any judgment. Even if he isn’t that great of a character, I think it’s a shame to not use this opportunity to meet one of my living relatives. I can’t imagine living my life never meeting one of my Uncles. Truthfully, I doubt he would be a very good dinner party guest. But if given the chance, I’d like to say that I have at the very least met my Uncle Jimmy.

Who would you want at your dinner party?



  1. I have met Uncle Jimmy and the last time I remember him being around, my parents left him to babysit us while they went to that was a while ago...I remember Adam being a baby in a crib, Shannon only 2 and then me being like 5....and I remember the music blaring and waking me up and hearing Adam cry...he took off I believe or was past out and I remember sitting over Adam's crib trying to get him out and trying to get him to stop crying then when Mom and Dad came home, I remember sitting on the stairs crying...that is the last memory I have of him - which wasnt a good one so I would like to see him too...maybe!

  2. I remember hearing Stacy's story about your uncle ... I think it would be very interesting for you guys to meet him. I have an uncle that I didn't remember and hadn't met until recent years, and it's been amazing to listen to his stories and to see how much he reminds me of my dad. I loved your choices, and even considered Kate for my list too! Unfortunately, the hot buys beat her out. LOL!

  3. Have you ever thought about publishing an ebook or guest authoring on other
    websites? I have a blog based upon on the same topics you discuss and
    would really like to have you share some stories/information.
    I know my audience would appreciate your work. If you're even remotely interested, feel free to shoot me an email.

  7. Hi your website url:
    g?blogID=4140514887880781187&postID=7982041948189166478 seems to be redirecting to a completely different

  8. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the structure of your site?
    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect with it better.
    Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or 2 images.

    Maybe you could space it out better?
