Pamper yourself with a Pedicure

We all have lots to do and find ourselves running all over town.   Let's give our feet a rest and some much needed pampering.   On Saturday March 5th we are headed to the Nail Salon for a pedicure!  Check your email for the Evite with all of the details.  Be sure to RSVP as soon as possible so we can ensure we have enough appointments booked.  With Spring just around the corner, it will be the perfect time to pick out some fun colors and pull out the sandals.  See you soon!

Italian Cooking Night!!!

Our Resiterns meeting went on a culinary adventure to Italy this month thanks to Laura! And oh my goodness, what a fabulous, tasty adventure that was...gnocchi al ragu', the most amazing eggplant parmigiana I have ever tasted and tiramisu! I'm so glad I barely ate all day to save room for this night. : ) Even if you couldn't come enjoy the food and friends with us, I hope you enjoy pictures of the fun!

 Kyla and Ericca watched intently, too.

 SO yummy!

 Ericca jumped in to help!

 Laura serving the tiramisu. Somehow I didn't get a picture of the eggplant parmigiana (probably because I was too busy eating it!).

We were all awarded wooden spoons as a certificate of our attendance. : ) 

 Group shot with the tiramisu. To the far left is Mary. She was a guest at our meeting, and we want to offer her a big thanks for coming and sharing her service ideas!

 Just because Kyla knew this was going to make the blog...

And finally, a big thanks for those donations for the Women's Crisis Center! 

Thank you again, Laura for hosting this fun night and for cooking such yummy food! Everyone be checking your e-mails for the recipes!
