Girls’ Night In

About once a month (or, occasionally, a bit more frequently…), a group of my girlfriends hold a “Girls’ Night Out.” Last week, I hosted a Valentine’s Day-themed “Girls’ Night In.” About 25 women came together for conversation, cake-tinis, cupcakes and other sweets, and I was left feeling pretty darn fortunate to be surrounded by such amazing people.

Here are a few photos (and recipes) from the night.

    This is a great way to get blog readership up. But what an incredible party and what an array of fun-loving, lovely ladies! Monica’s salty cupcake is awesome!

    That is my idea of a perfect girls’ night. And your friends look totally adorable and fun! How do you do these things as a current and expectant working mother?! I am in complete awe.

    Ditto to all of the above!!! How do you do it? Do you sleep? What did Bryan and the girls do? Next time, can we come?

    PS – did you make those mini pies with the thing I got you for Christmas – if so, does it work well, and do you like it???
