So, if you are not on Pinterest, then you are missing out! Ok, really, you have one less ‘time suck’ in your life, but there are LOTS and LOTS of cool ideas there.
I recently attended a Mom’s night out that combined great food, a few mamma friendly beverages, and pinterest, and I have to say…it was one of the best MNO I have attended so far! I’m pretty sure Julie got the idea for a Pinterest Party from Pinterest….seriously, pinterest has ideas for EVERYTHING.
To host your own ‘Pinterest and Potluck’ all you have to do is set a date, and invite all your Mamma friends over! They will each bring a delicious dish, and a craft or project of some kind that they have not had time to work on at home.
Somehow the stars aligned and even without a potluck sign-up, we ended up with a great selection of appetizers, main dishes, and desserts, to choose from. After we ate our way through some quesadillas, pull-apart-bread, and peanut butter cup brownies, we got to work on our crafts.
I took a bedsheet that I had planned to turn into curtains for my kitchen. It was great to work on my project without feeling like I should be playing with Eli or loading the dishwasher. It was also cool to have the input of the other ladies. We were all helping each other with our projects, and collectively, we came up with some great stuff! Liz made a super cute shirt out of a -way-too-big-for-her- tshirt. Maybe she’ll post about that sometime! Other gals worked on jewelry, wreaths, hairbows, and cute decoupaged clipboards.
We had such a great time that we are going to do the same thing this month!
