Boston Parent Bloggers Launch Party

So as you already know, last night I attended the launch party for Boston Parent Bloggers!
What a great night! The founders, Christy Matte and Jodi Grundig did a wonderful job organizing this event. Thank you for all the hard work you put in for this successful night!

The event took place at Barefoot Books in Concord, Ma. This was my first visit and let me just say,  walking in the door was like walking right into a box of crayons!  See for yourself..
You couldn’t help but want to bring you inner kid out! Not only do they have beautiful books and story time but they offer daily events such as music, yoga, crafts and kids kitchen!
The food was catered by Peapod, there was something for everyone and the fact that I didn’t have to prepare dinner tonight made it that much more enjoyable!  Thank you Peapod!!!Open-mouthed smile
To go with the great food there were some wonderful giveaways, a few of which I won!! As we ended the night we each received 2 swag bags full of some great items from some very generous sponsors!  Thank you!!!
I won a yummy gift basket full of chocolates, crackers n’ cheese from Wine Country Gift Baskets, a supply of Pop Chips and my favorite of all a dinner for four to Aura which is located in the Seaport Hotel in Boston! Christmas has come early for me!!!
It was so nice meeting new bloggers and putting some faces to their blogs! Wish there was more time to meet and talk with everyone. That just goes to show what a great turnout there was. Here I am with Jane and Kristi.
Can’t wait for the next one!

p.s.  Have to give props to hubby for holding down the fort last night!  I could get used to this real quick!!Winking smile
