GNO2

This past weekend I was able to host the latest Girls Night Out at my house! We had a really good turnout, tons of food and I also ended up with a few new favorite things. For those of you who aren't familiar with GNO we start by having a potluck and then go on to have a nickel auction where one by one, we each take turns selling our unwanted items.

Here is a picture of half of the group. I think in this picture, people were in the middle of bidding...sorry ladies!

Ginger, Emily, Brittany and baby Leisel at "intermission".

And here are the things I got:
A mirror, lamp, cookie cutters, clock, pacifiers, new scrapbooking chalk, picture frames, scrapbooking stamps, embosser with powder, Scrapbooking paper and stickers, A cheese grater, Christmas bowl, leggings, a very cute bag, a pumpkin dish and my favorite thing of the night were some hand made turquoise earrings (in the pumpkin dish).
Girls Night Out has become one of my new favorite things. It is a great way to meet new people and to have fun together. I highly recommend to start one if you need a good way to get to know your neighbors or if you just want to have some fun with your girlfriends!

You got quite the loot there. That sounds like a fun idea.

We fly in to SLC around noon on the 8th and we leave the morning of the 16th. I really hope we don't completely overlap and miss each other. I'm dying to meet Mr. Oliver!! ...and see you and Luke again too, of course :-D
