Well, Duh! You need to know about this!

I forgot to share this!

Last week Treg & I were responsible for "group date night" (June 19). So we held a "House Party" I don't even remember how I found out about this site but I signed up to become a host of the "Thrill of the Grill Hot Dog House Party™". It was sponsored by Oscar Mayer. We were chosen to be the hosts and it coincided with our date night!

They said there were going to send me a gift pack and linked up to party favors and activities. I was THRILLED when I opened the box and there was napkins, plates, a large bottle of Heinz Ketchup, frisbees, soft baseballs, and WEENIE WHISTLES! There were also coupons for free hot dogs and $.75 off Heinz ketchup! For those who know me know that I was more excited about those than anything else. FREE OSCAR MAYER HOT DOGS - the ANGUS kind... it was AWESOME!

So, we invited the "gang" and decided to hold a picnic up Provo Canyon. I made potato salad (yummy recipe, I will share if you want me to), and others brought side dishes. We went to WalMart (yes, because it was the closest) and paid $.63 for 7 packs of the Angus Hot Dogs... they retail for over $3.00 per pack.

We had an awesome time... had 12 people there... and with a light breeze, the grill sizzling and frisbees flying (and we did lose one in the bushes, Scott P. is not the best catcher, apparently) I thought it was a great evening for all - here we are blowing our Weenie Whistles!

This House Party thing has many types of get together opportunities. I am considering a couple more... let me know if you want to come.

BTW, I am not getting compensated for this other than an excuse to spend time with friends (that's always good) and free stuff to share. I was able to give away all the coupons for free hot dogs (except for the 7 I used) and $.75 off Heinz Ketchup coupons as well as the frisbees, baseballs and weenie whistles. I have my Prepared Pantry FULL of ketchup and don't need any more!
