 Plans under way for Michelle's 50th

The countdown may be on for New Year’s Eve, but the White House is already looking ahead to another big day in 2014: Michelle Obama’s 50th birthday.

To celebrate the first lady’s birthday on Jan. 17 the White House will be holding a party the following day called, “Snacks & Sips & Dancing & Dessert,” the Chicago Tribune reported Thursday, citing sources.

Save-the-date emails are already being sent with instructions for guests to “wear comfortable shoes, eat before you come and practice your dance moves,” the paper said.


No word yet on the guest list or entertainment.

The president celebrated his 50th birthday in 2011 with a barbecue in the Rose Garden with plenty of friends, lawmakers, donors and celebrities joining the festivities. Former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton also rang in her 50th birthday as first lady in 1997, with nearly 500 attending a party held on the South Lawn.

Eat before you come?  They're not going to feed their guests?!  What kind of party is that?

Snacks, sips and dessert only. Basically a cocktail party.

Reminds me. Should do one, they are always fun.  :laugh:

Maybe for a change they decided to keep the cost of their fun down. Now I said maybe so don't call me stupid besides I am just being funny so ignore what I said.

I assume a mini-series showing her many life's accomplishments will be next. :thud:
There is danger from all men. The only maxim of a free government ought to be to trust no man living with power to endanger the public liberty.
Public virtue cannot exist in a nation without private, and public virtue is the only foundation of republics. There must be a positive passion for the public good, the public interest, honour, power and glory, established in the minds of the people, or there can be no republican government, nor any real liberty: and this public passion must be superior to all private passions.

How many virgins are they planning to sacrifice?

It's the day after MLKJr's birthday, so there's definitely room for a two-fer.
