Last Wednesday I posted on my personal Facebook page about a party idea I saw on Pinterest.
(By the way, I promise not to talk about Pinterest in every single post I write on this blog, but I had to today, mkay?)
I posted this picture on my wall.
|Caramel Apple Dipping Party on Pinterest|
And I said something along the lines of, “Someone invite me to a party like this ASAP.”
And you know what happened?
For that Saturday.
Yes, in THREE days my friend Carrie put together a Caramel Apple Dipping Party. Because even though she’s a lazy mom, she loves parties. And therefore she is my friend. Because I like GOING to parties, but I don’t like hosting them.
And okay, she’s my friend for other reasons than that.
I’m pretty sure.
I mean, I think I’m pretty sure.
But anyway! She loved the idea when she saw it late Wednesday night and decided my ASAP truly meant ASAP, and threw the party on Saturday.
Now that’s what I call a true friend.
That and anyone who brings me prepared dinners “just because.” (hint, hint)
Carrie’s party was marvelous. And even though she didn’t have those trifle bowls, her dipping bar was no less beautiful.
And no less inviting.
And no less exciting.
And no less DELICIOUS.
In fact, Carrie made the BEST homemade caramel dip EVER. I declared I wanted to sit in a hot tub of it. Which made a few people cringe a little, but overall was a statement I stood behind.
Here I am wishing I had a hot tub of the stuff.
And okay, I was a little hopped up on sugar.
And sheer joy.
Oh, and the fact that someone invited me to a party to dip apples in caramel and then dip them in toppings.
It was a dream come true. And my dreams don’t usually come true that fast, like, ever.
So the moral of the story is this….
Attach yourself to people who like to have parties, make them your friend. Then post on Facebook random things from Pintrest that you want to be invited to, hope and pray your “party thrower” friend sees it, and your dreams can come true too!
