I had such a wonderful day today!
I had a playdate at my house! I love playdates! It consisted of me, Grace and 3 other moms +5 more kids! It was a blast! A bit cold and rainy outside, but they had plenty to do inside. One mom had to leave to pick up her daughter from preschool, but the others stayed until after lunch. It was so, so much fun. I LOVE having friends/anyone over to my house! This is one of my goals for this year, and it is making my heart happy that I am fulfilling that goal.
So before everyone left, we decided to do it again next week at another mom's house......
Another cool thing we decided to do, is a meal exchange. Each mom picks one recipe, makes it 5 times (or the number = to the # of moms in the group), then we all get together one day and exchange meals and PRESTO, we all have 5 meals already made! So far we have 5 moms, and I'm hoping to get a few more.... We are going to buy those large foil containers w/lids from a restaurant supply store, and if we buy enough, they are only $.50/apiece. I think that is a good deal!
I've been wanting to do something similar, for a long while!
Fun thing #2 today, I went to a Fashion Party! I bought a long gray sweater for $10, I think that is a pretty good deal. I'm wearing it right, and I'm all warm and cozy!
Well, the purpose of this party, is to highlight women/moms who make and sell things, clothes, jewelry, purses. Just to help get the word out etc.....
pretty cool idea, so next go around I'm hoping to have a few things to sell also.
So, that is my day! it was a really good day, and to put the icing on the cake, the kids are spending the night at Grandma and Papaws :)
