Dominos Houseparty Party

I threw my Dominos Houseparty on Saturday and it was a big hit!

I ran to Safeway on Friday since I got off work early. It was the first time in months that I didn't use a stack of coupons and I felt a little guilty for spending so much money ($79) but $35 of it was in beer. I had a brain fart and forgot to even look for coupons to use......oh well.

I went down to Dominos in person to order the pizzas around 1:00, because if something was going to go wrong with an order, it would have happened to me. I ordered 6 medium American Legends pizzas and 1 medium cheese pizza. I used the $75 gift card with no problem and after tax and the delivery charge it was only about $10 out of my pocket.

The party was scheduled to start at 2:00 and everybody had showed up by 2:10. My friends and family normally don't read clocks very well and most of the time they are 20-30 minutes late to things. The pizza arrived right at 2:00 and all the boxes almost took up my whole kitchen counter space. There was only room for the cake and the pizza. I set out the salad, dressing, chips, dips, cutlery and plates on the kitchen table.

Hubbs had borrowed a long yard sale type table from his dad and that was set up in the front yard for the drinks. The canned sodas and the beer were in ice chests under the tables and the juice, bottled drinks, water, cups and straws were set up on the table.

The only bad thing was that I couldn't find my damn camera. It wasn't on top of the fridge like I thought it was so I didn't get any pictures but FIL did. I am waiting for him to email them to me.

The party started winding down around 4:30 but I still had people at our house when I went to bed at 11:00. In my defense, the people left were my brother, Hubbs' cousin and a couple of Hubb's friends so I wasn't being rude by going to bed.

That worked! I can read your page now! I visited your blog a week or so ago and wanted to read your posts, but the ad was blocking the view. It looks great now, though!

Congratulations on winning the house party! Sounds like it was kind of pricey to have a party even with the free pizzas.

Oh, and have you heard about MyPoints? My husband and I earn several $20 gift cards a year (for, macaroni grill, or from a selection of many other choices). It's really easy to earn the points.

Thanks for letting me know about the swagbucks ad issue. The party was a little on the expensive side but I figured that it would be worth it. Everything is so damn expensive anymore. LoL

MyPoints is awesome. Those little emails they send really do add up. I haven't cashed out for any cards yet but am planning on doing it soon.
