Honestly, we are ALL pretty full of secrets. Of that I am convinced!
I know you are hoping I am going to tell you some super juicy secret that I have just been dying to blast all over the internet and blogosphere. That's not reeeeeeally the case ....today at least. I actually DID do that in this blog post, and I owe y'all a follow up. especially since the title says part one, meaning there will be more! Anyway, not today.
The "secret" that I want to spill today is super silly but for some reason I want to just put it out there because it is kinda irritating me.
So, I am a member on this site, houseparty.com , and I occasionally apply to host parties for them.
** Basically they supply you with a product or products and supplies to throw a fun party with your friends, which in turn gets the name out etc. and you get to keep everything** so... my dilemma is that I was
finally selected to host a party. A KEURIG RIVO party, people. As in, the best party I have ever seen available. As in, the only party I ever applied for and really, REALLY wanted to get. I actually had no doubt that I would NOT get selected because I figured everyone else and their mom would have applied. But they picked me YAY!
I know.... you don't feel bad right? and this sounds more like bragging then spilling a secret right? Ok, bear with me because I promise it's not.
So, the issue is that the selected party hosts (me) were each sent TWO Rivos (awww poor Erin what a horrible predicament) and basically one is implied to be a gift for one randomly selected party goer ( aka my "friends") and here is where the problem lies. In order to be a good "hostess" for Houseparty.com I want to have several people there. In fact, that is something they will look for when I submit the pictures. I invited around 20 people using the invites on the site and then texted my friends to let them know. Now, I live pretty far out of the way so a "brunch at my place" on a Saturday isn't everyone's cup of tea (or espresso) I get that. So several people are "busy" or just can't make it etc. I know I could pack my house if I just tell them I am giving away a FREE espresso machine but I don't want to tell anyone (and I haven't) because I don't want people over who aren't genuinely coming to hang with me.
So, do you think that I should tell them so that I have a big, successful party and make the company happy? or do you think keeping it a secret (minus blogging haha) so that a true friend gets the machine is the right thing to do?
Here's a hint.... I don't think you will change my mind.
