About Me

My photo
Mysteries, polka dots, California Rolls, TJ Maxx, cozy blankets, rainy days and getting the first spoonful of peanut butter out of the jar make me smile. Spiders, rude people, cold fingers and toes, baby leashes, people that don't wrap their packages before going to the Post Office, poison ivy and Math (pretty much all of it) make me want to scream. My perfect day would be spent with my wonderful husband and sweet girls- watching movies in our jammies! Of course, having the movie theater to ourselves would be great, too. Please pass the popcorn and M&M's.:) I am saved by the grace of God. He is my constant companion and hears my every prayer. What a blessing! I'd love to hear from you!

Who's up for a Mystery?

I mentioned on an earlier post how much I enjoy hosting murder mystery parties.  Well, I bought another one.  I couldn't help myself.  This particular one was in a YARD SALE.  Some poor soul had no idea of what was in their possession and lucky me- I plucked it right up.  Yep, I did (as my heart did a little flip flop).   

You know the best part about these games?  Besides the fact that you get to act silly and solve a mystery (who doesn't love that?) you get to pretend that you are someone else for a night. Someone exotic, mysterious and, most of the time, rich.  Plus, there are secrets.:-)  OK, who's ready to solve a mystery with me?

My aunt did one of these when I was a girl. It was so much fun. We got to dress up all fancy, talk like we were from England, and eat crumpents and tea. BLAST! Enjoy that!! Wish I could find a treasure like that at a yard sale!

How do you go about finding a group for this or get into it? It sounds like so much fun! =0)

Mandy- You can buy the games on-line or, occasionally, at book stores. Ebay is a great place to look, too! Search for "How to Host a Murder" or mystery parties. They are absolutely the most fun! I have had 3 of them so far and they just get better and better... I wish you lived closer so you could come! Although I do have a friend in Virginia that told me she would fly in for my next one.:-) Lori
