Ladies Movie Night!!

So about every month or so the ladies in my family get together for a chick flick, some good food, and few laughs. It's always so much fun, and tonight I played host! Everyone brings something, and tonight's menu did not disappoint! We had a chicken salad, a summer sweets salad with greens straight from my friends local farm with some strawberries, blueberries and delicious sharp white cheddar. Can you say yum! Also we had some veggie dip that was so amazing and stuffed mushrooms! Dessert was gluten-free cupcakes (I can't do gluten.) and chocolate covered strawberries! So good, and just so much fun to get all the girls together (although some of were missing due to a stomach bug making the rounds...Danielle we missed you!) I also LOVE this movie, from the scenery, to the great soundtrack, and who doesn't just love the adorable Ms. Deschanel!

But what really makes hosting so great is that it completely lit a fire under my butt to tackle some of the things around my house that needed tending to, like this closet door that had been driving me nuts for the past few weeks...


When we repainted our living room this closet door had been left in it's original wood state, sticking out like a sore thumb! So yesterday and today I got to it, and primed and painted this baby, so now it looks like this....

So much better!

And I am in love with this door knob! I bought this probably 3 years ago at Anthropologie, and have carted it all over with me from place to place, never finding quite the right spot for it... til now!!

Isn't it amazing how much we can get done when we know company is coming ;)

I hope that you all had a great Saturday night too!

Love,
The Bird
