My House Party package arrived! Time to start planning for my Joanne Fluke Blackberry Pie Murder mystery party!!!!

The UPS man had quite the delivery at my house on Friday. I must say, while he unloaded his truck I had one of those scratch your head moments. His delivery kind of summed up my life (at the moment). Box #1 a wine delivery, Box #2 our monthly supply of diapers, Box #3 my Joanne Fluke House Party package. Wine, diapers, and a book.... Yep, that pretty much sums me up at the moment.

I am not sure which package I found more exciting. You see we were getting close to running dangerously low on diapers and any mom will tell you, you do let out a sigh of relief when the next box arrives. A bottle of wine, when you are not expecting one, very exciting! The package I have been waiting for, my Joanne Fluke Blackberry Pie Murder, House Party package... So very exciting!

My mom was in town when they all arrived, and you should have seen her and I as I opened the Book Party Box. It was like two little kids at Christmas. I heard her more than once say ,"oh man" because unfortunately she will already be back home when I have the party.

Now that I have my party pack, I can start planning. Menu planning, and decorations. If you know me and have been to any of my parties you know I tend to go a little overboard. Not only do I get to start planning, but I also get to start reading!!! Yahoo!

Check out this party pack... A signed hardcover copy of Blackberry Pie Murder, two soft cover copies of Red Velvet Cupcake Murder, Pepperidge Farm cookies, Twinings teas, and a Tito's cocktail shaker. For those that don't know, Tito's is a handmade Vodka, out of Texas. I love small batch handmade liquor. One of my favorites is Dry Fly, but I am thinking I am going to have to get my hands on Titos. Enough about that... Although I could write an entire post on some of my favorite small distilleries.

Back to the party business...As you all know I am a huge Hobby Lobby patron. This gives me an excuse to dash off to Hobby Lobby tomorrow and pick up a few decorations. I can't wait! I will also be calling my favorite Bakery to place an order for some Red Velvet cupcakes, and to see if she will custom make some Blackberry cupcakes.

You might be wondering about the cocktail shaker. There is a recipe card behind it for Blackberry Pie Martini. As a good hostess, I am thinking I might have to test run that recipe before the party. A book that has a mystery, recipes and a cocktail to go with it? That is what I am talking about!

This has been a fun adventure for me. I was honored to have the Authors son contact me, via my Blog. Imagine my surprise when I saw that he had posted a comment here on my Blog. He then promoted my Blog on his mothers Facebook page, which was more than I could have ever asked for. It is important for me to write this Blog. If I can help one more child get adopted out of Foster Care, than this Blog will be a success. It takes word of mouth and help from all of my friends to gain an audience large enough to eventually start helping. So again I thank all of you for reading and following us on our adventures. I also want to thank those that have promoted my Blog on their own Facebook pages, you too are helping.
