Pinterest and Pancakes

"So yah, I'm converting my son's mobile into a sassy, girly one for our daughter-to-be!" my girlfriend said as we all sat admiring her work and feeling slightly shameful of our own sewing skills. After all, isn't this what our ancestors were doing...sitting in knitting circles while they dished about their families? Yet here we were, indulging in delectable pancakes, waffles, scones, egg souffles and more as we chattered on about our children's milestones, our engaged husbands and impending births that spring held right around the corner.

Pinterest and Pancakes: the theme for our January MOMS group outing, hosted by my dear friend Kylie, which included nine girls each ripe with a project in their hand and a story to share.

There were knee patches sewn, mobiles created, pregnancy scrapbooks put together, ornaments glued, magnets assembled and more. And best of all, new friendships were made, conversation rich with female life and the perfect way to start a Saturday.

So if you're looking for a bit of a theme that's easy to plan, affordable, fun and lets your girls get some breathing room to actually work on a project, perhaps a Pinterest one is for you.

Happy crafting!
