It is so much fun to tour with other Dreamers. I enjoyed Sonoma and had hoped to get to Tahoe but needed a long weekend so did not work out. If one of us wins, we need to have a dreamers Barbecue in the outdoor kitchen Njgal. Glad you are here, miss so many of the others. Beachlady is recovering from a heart attack, she has been her regularly this year. Shelly showed up a couple months ago, was hoping she'd return for BOLO time.Hopefully your call out will bring a few more.

Hi NJ Gal: We've certainly had enough practice shoveling to be well prepared to take possession of this year's DH!

You all certainly have done some snow shoveling, especially this year. I just happened to look at the winter pictures at the Tahoe Dream home right before I came here and was thinking it has been a while since I shoveled snow, but would get a lot of practice there.

The home looks beautiful both winder and summer.

We're finally having a warmish spell and are down to only a few inches of snow cover.

Probably pass out in my doorway!! I have been entering since the beginning. Would be totally shocked if I actually won! Either pass out or scream and jump around like a crazy person!! Smileat any rate the people in tv land would be entertained.

Well; I just hope the host is a Woman!
My plan is to go in for a good old fashioned, knock your socks off Kiss!
If It's a guy.. a friendly handshake.
Then; after she adjusts her dress, fixes her lipstick and takes a few deep breaths to calm down...and they edit the tape...
Either way, a wave to all of the Dreamers..
Cash Option Please!

I'm typically NOT at a loss for words, but THIS might actually do it with a great big smile. Afterwards, my cheeks would hurt for days. Maybe we should practice this so we don't go through DAYS of physical cheek therapy. lol And...if I'm NOT selected, I will have kept aging lines off the face from smiling.

No one can predict how they will react to a total surprise.
The post about a winner acting like a robot upset me..
This person was at at a loss for words and in shock;, even though she knew what was going to happen beforehand..
It's unfair to judge a person in a situation like that. WWYD?

Practice what? My imagination is running wild here...
Practice makes Perfect!
It's been a rough Winter, better work on these chapped lips...Where's my Balm?

BTW Does anyone know if the Ambush Host is a Man or a Woman?
Hoping for the latter, of course!

LOL

A friend of mine years ago had one of those gorgeous Actress smiles. Others wondered if her smile was even real. Fortunately with time, she admitted that her face sometimes became sore, and just like the rest of us had bad days, too.

My dh says that's one of the first things he remembers about me - my beautiful smile. Any woman of any age enjoys hearing these words. So, smile like you HAVE won. It always makes some people wonder what you have been up to.

All of my teeth are solid gold so I have to be careful when and where I smile! Smile

Since it looks like there is a pretty long wait between an ambush in March and announcement in April, I think I'd take myself a nice long vacation so I didn't have to face friends & co-workers whist jumping up & down inside with excitement.
