Last weekend, M was out of town for a bachelor party in Vegas. I was home with T and decided to have a little party of my own. I invited a few girls over for a party inspired by Pinterest. Each of us wore something and brought a snack to share that we had pinned to our Boards and never gotten around to trying. I knew I had a load of pins collecting “e-dust” that I wanted to test out.
This outfit that Merrick wore a while back inspired my outfit above. I loved the outfit she put together and was pumped to already have all the pieces in my closet to replicate with my touch.
For my pinspired snack, I love York peppermint patties. I tried to whip up my version of Peppermint Brownies. I often make brownies (from a box, because it’s so darn easy and so good), so the chocolate part went well. Afraid of overloading the peppermint, I treaded lightly with the peppermint patties and wish I had been more indulgent. The peppermint didn’t stand out much, so we ended up with pretty decent brownies sans peppermint. I think many of us learned a little something from each of our dishes and will make an adjustment next time we make our dish, but that was all part of the game. I was excited we had that extra push to step outside our same old comfort zones and experiment with something new. I am definitely going to throw this same party again down the road when we all have more posts we’ve added with great intentions and never rounded up enough excitement to execute.
