I have a book club. Well, I don't HAVE one, I'm apart of one with several good friends of mine. We have a perfectly not kid friendly name…I'll put it here. I'm not explaining it. If you get it, you get it…if you don't well – please don't google it. You do not want to see what will come up and I'm KNOW it's NSFW or NSFS –
This, my friends is what happens when a group of woman get together and try to think of the funniest (for us) and worst possible book club name…LOL.
I'm hosting April 26th, and I'm THRILLED. I'm so busy with kids and the blogs that a lot of times I don't get to go – let alone host. Rules of Book Club are that the person hosting can pick the book, or offer a vote. I let them vote, and MAYBE SOMEDAY by Colleen Hoover was chosen! *squee* (The other options were Hopeless by Colleen Hoover and Beautiful Disaster by Jamie McGuire)
Now, I have a party planning problem. I tend to go a bit overboard. As is evident by my THE MORTAL INSTRUMENTS meeting. Actually looking over the photos it's not that "over the top" – I should have taken more photos. Any way, we had trivia which I made into a Jeopardy board and the girls signaled they wanted to answer with their Pettyfer Paddles. (This was WAY before a movie was even an idea for the book and we all though Alex would be the best Jace….)
Also, once I had a Twilight party and…well….that cost more than I care to admit to admit…you can see it here on my SUPER old family blog (Part 1 Part 2 Part 3) No judging me, I had JUST had a baby and looked a bit like "pregnant Bella" still…this was back in 2009 BTW.
So now…now I get to go all out on this bad boy of a book. I know, most the world hasn't read it – but pre-order it and have it the day it comes out because DAY-UM…I promise you it's amazing!
The plans SO FAR include some shirts for the girls and myself. I designed the graphic and have a printer at the ready for my order. As evident by the snippet from the book, this band is apart of the book.
I will also be making some chocolate guitars: See the red one? Yea, I'm making those. (not the backstage pass lanyards, those were the invites to my sisters engagement party…see I have A PROBLEM!)
Also, I'll be having some themed drinks that have something to do with Pine-Sol (but not really, I don't plan to poison my friends) you'll have to read the book to understand that. I'm also planning the menu right now for snacks, and working on trivia and prizes for the girls.
So stay tuned – I'll be blogging more about the party prep and such over the time leading up to it – with a grand post of all our massive fun on the actual day!
This is going to be an epic book club meeting!
