Kewl Beans Grand Opening

After the weekend I had with my five men,
I'm thinking a day away is in order!
I'm off on a virtual trip to the grand opening of
the newest, coolest coffee shop in blogland!
Mr. Fox and Mr. Simpson are sure to be
wonderful hosts and I'm looking forward to it!
Since it's a formal affair, I thought this navy
silk gown by Vera Wang would be perfect!
Navy is my best color. :)
Not taking a date to this affair, just going
it alone. Maybe Mmm and Barry will
let me have a dance?
Now...wonder what special kind of lattes
I'll get to sample...maybe a cappuccino, too?
Do you think Mr. Fox really looks like his avatar?
One can only hope! :)

  1. Hi Betsy!

    Your gown looks lovely! I have seen this grand opening around in blogland. While I'm not able to attend, I am curious and may pop over and peek in the windows :) Keep a look out for me. I promise to wave :)

  2. Oh yes, that's right, we didn't meet Mr. Fox at the Xmas Tea, now did we?! Still, it will be good to catch up with Skipster and, of course, Gretchen-- her English has improved immmensely!

    Yes, a dance? I'd be thrilled. Thank you. I seem to recall from Willow's ball you were quite the dancer adn had a huge line of men, all waiting to take tehri turn, so if I can bunk in the queue, brill. I'm sure my "date" for the evening wouldn't mind. It is only for the day's events anyway.

    Now, as for that dress. Lovely. Navy blue is actually my favourite colour too, as it is, so even better. But, you don't have to lob off your lovely head and hands for this outfit to work, do you? :)

    I am keeping a travel logue for the day's events over here too, aside from my regular blog.

  16. I love, love, love Vera Wang. Not that my bootie would fit in that but it is lovely.

    ReplyDelete
  17. you look dazzling Betsy, well at least from here. The Foxster texted me your photo.

    ReplyDelete
  18. Did he? Now did you ask for that or did he send it voluntarily? LOL! I think Tara got him good with an elbow for noticing I didn't have a date. ha.

    ReplyDelete
  19. Hey, any young lady who's on her toes would be envious of you. So glad I finally get to meet you! David's told me so... umm... Actually, he hasn't said much, except that you're really nice, and all.

    ReplyDelete
  20. Tara ~ you mean he never mentioned a ca.... oh, never mind. It's very nice to meet you, too. I think Mr. Fox is quite smitten with you. :)

    ReplyDelete
  21. I feel the same about him. And no, he never mentioned a cake, or whatever it was you were saying. [winks] He is kinda "foxy," ya think?

    ReplyDelete
  22. Oh...yes, cake,....cake...that's it. Oh, no worries. And yes, very handsome for sure!

    ReplyDelete
  23. So glad we understand one another. You're a delight!

    ReplyDelete
  24. and you, too, Tara...Mr. Fox is one lucky man. :)

    ReplyDelete
  25. Always has been, as far as I can see!

    ReplyDelete
  26. Betsy, as always, you look lovely. I am looking forward to chatting with you again as we did at Mr. Toast's Christmas Tea. First, I am PATIENTLY waiting to leave my room....with my new guest.
    Maybe you could wonder up the stairs and to my room...#005...and help?

    ReplyDelete
  27. Lizzie ~ 005? cute... I think you'll be in fine hands very soon! LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  28. Horray. So glad you're going to make it. This will definitely be The place to kick off those heels and relax.

    ReplyDelete
  29. Dreamhaven ~ yes, you are absolutely right...I need another latte...care to join me?

    ReplyDelete
  30. Beautiful gown, how could I resist asking you for a dance.

    If only Xena, Warrior princes will let go of my arm.

    Oh come one Xena! I only want one dance with Betsy!

    ReplyDelete
  31. WEll Barry, you can have the first dance but I get one too at some point...well maybe after Sophia's sone, that is. and actually after Xena is gone as well for you. I mean she looks pretty tough there.

    ReplyDelete
  32. Awww, Barry...I thought you'd never ask! ...um....yes, just as soon as Xena says it's ok. :)

    ReplyDelete
  33. Mmm ~ absolutely...and you may have a better chance....Xena's got quite a grip on Barry..and she's his ride home! ha.

    ReplyDelete
  34. I'm talking to Marceau now, in fact. She's loving the weather here. Nice and warm.

    ReplyDelete
  35. Betsy, you looked great tonight! And... umm... what kinda talk with Tara? Just curious...

    ReplyDelete
  36. Mr. Fox ~ why thank you! You are looking quite handsome yourself, there, all dressed for dinner!

    Tara and I...well, let's just say that she let me know where I stood...which is far away. ha. I think she's a little possessive of you! And, I do kick boxing, but I'm afraid I'm no match for her...haha...although, she said it all with a compliment and a smile. :)

    ReplyDelete
  37. With "a compliment and a smile?" Yeah, knowing her, she meant both, and you deserved 'em. Subtle but important difference between being possessive and being crazy jealous...

    ReplyDelete
  38. WEll Foxster, I quite agree with you about Betsy.

    ReplyDelete
  39. Indeed, Mr. Toast! That's one classy young lady, that's for sure.

    ReplyDelete
  40. Young? Oh yea...keep it coming, guys! LOL!

    ReplyDelete
  41. Well, Betsy, if I may step out of character for a moment -- my "Foxster" log-in is just for today, by the way -- you are a lot younger than I. (My SnL counterpart, the Foxster, is about 20 years younger than I am!) But I'm referring more to your attitude and outlook than chronological age, anyway. So "young" isn't just flattery.

    Okay, okay, enough serious crap, here. Back to fiction; it's safer.

    ReplyDelete
  42. Awww...now, I kinda like that serious, sweet side of you! ;)

    ReplyDelete
  43. Catch me on the Silver Fox blog, then. ;-) On SnL now, Skip and I try to stay in character. On my Foxyblog, I'm pretty much myself.

    ReplyDelete
  44. Betsy,
    Had a great evening... you looked divine daaaling.. see you soon!

  45. Yes foster, she's gotta be about mid 30's I'd say, wouldn't you? Lovely, regardless.

    And to you, dear Betsy, can;t believe we didn't get that dance after all that. I had to rush out, sorry to say. And you are so right, I'd NEVER voluntarily give away my hair. I'd rather go shoeless than do something that daft! :)

    ReplyDelete
  46. Betsy, Thank you so much for attending our first-ever blogger-event. Your presence helped make it very special!

    ReplyDelete
  47. What Skip said... and thanks for helping to build characterization in the various comments sections! It seems like it took the readers a bit longer to warm up to Tara (as opposed to Gretchen, who was an immediate hit), and the KBGO was used to showcase her various good points. So glad you and she got along.

    Thanks again.

    ReplyDelete
  48. Skip ~ it was a wonderful time and great success!

    Silver Fox ~ I think Gretchen had the advantage of breaking the ice with us at Mr. Toast's Tea. Tara is quite wonderful herself...and oh so lucky!
