Our Crazy Oscar Party

I love the Oscars.  Most years we've only seen a few of the films, but this year we'd seen about half of the "big ones" -  Argo, Lincoln, Les Miserables, and Silver Linings Playbook.  All of them were fantastic, so we decided we'd just be happy for whoever won.  The one thing I was disappointed in was that Frankenweenie didn't win.

This year we went to our friend's Ann and Terence's house for an Oscar party.  Ann loves to throw "theme parties", and our friend Jerin had been lobbying for a pajama party...so we figured why not dress down for one of the most dressed up nights of TV?  Turns out Ann had asked both her husband and I on different occasions what we should eat...and both of us responded with a resounding BREAKFAST...so "Breakfast with Oscar" was born.

Here are a few shots from the evening.

The food was delicious!  We had waffles with Nutella, bacon, a beautiful fruit salad, amazing gluten free scones, and a breakfast casserole that's out of this world (recipe coming later this week).

The scones were the BEST GF bread I'd ever had.  Ann made them with Pamela's Baking & Pancake Mix.  At $8/bag it's a little expensive, but was SO delicious!

And of course the pups played.  Toby came into the party wearing a Snuggie our friend Susan gave him a few years ago, but quickly wiggled out of it.  He had to dress in PJ's too, right?

Toby, Amelia, and Sara (see her in the background?)

Pete laid on the floor, which of COURSE was an invitation for the dogs to attack.

Fun night!


  1. OMG! Breakfast with Oscar! That is the best idea ever! I may borrow this amazing idea for next year! And Toby looks like he had a blast with the other pups!

    1. You should totally have a "Breakfast with Oscar" party next year. It was a LOT of fun. Toby "grew up" with Amelia, the medium-size dog. We all actually met in puppy training class, so they loooove to play together.

  2. I love that pancake mix! It is so yummy for GF. Looks like such a fun time. xx. McKenna Lou
