Girl Power Picnic: Words and Pictures

Hello Chickadee's! This weekend I had the pleasure of hostessing a Girl Power Picnic and it was a total BLAST. What is a Girl Power Picnic? You invite all the cool broads you know and get them together in a yard to meet, network, exchange contact information, eat sandwiches and drink outside. Add tunes and a liberal dosage of ice cream sandwiches and you got yourself a PARTY. :) Here are a few peeks from the shindig!


I started by cleaning up the back lot of my apartment building--it was more shabby than chic with yucky lawn furniture and a substantial cigarette butt cemetery.













It took nicely to me spending a gorgeous summery afternoon planting flowers, tying garlands and turning the laundry line into a fort. :)

All the girls brought something to pass--we needed a bigger table! There was a smorgasbord of omnivore, veggie and vegan treats. I was quite proud of the mountain of beers we amassed.

We lounged around on the grass, discussed our projects, laughed a lot, sipped on spiked lemonade long after the sun went down and made some new kick ass friends!

What were you up to this weekend, cupcakes?
