{a housewife party}

I hosted a little houswife party for the girls in my MOMS Club.
I just love a good daytime party. 
Not only does it mean I get out of doing housework but I get to
enjoy the company of my friends and eat yummy food. Can't complain about any of that, that's for sure.

I told the girls to bring a dish and wear a cute little apron... because you know, all proper
housewives wear aprons and look cute while doing housework.
Well, maybe not all the time {or any of the time}.. but a girl can pretend once in a while can't she?

I knew I was going to take pictures and set up a little photo area in the backyard
to take pictures.. and used some little props for the pictures.

One the menu:
10 different homemade food dishes
and a MOMosa drink.
Boy that drink was deelish.
Orange juice, sparkling apple cider
and a bit of lemon juice.. et voila!

Blog friends meet my housewife friends:

As you can tell it was a lot of fun.
And I'm so grateful -
grateful that we are able to come together as mothers
and as friends and enjoy each other's company.
Because every once in a while, its nice to escape
the messy house, the laundry, the dishes and the ever-growing
to-do list and just relax for a bit.
For my other housewife friends that couldn't make it, we'll do it again soon..

And now, I have a feeling my husband is gonna think
this is what I do all day long.. plan parties and dress up.
Ha! Now that's funny.
