What Happens in Waxhaw…

Ends up on the blog. 🙂

I was invited to a potluck a few weeks ago in Waxhaw, NC.  First, what a beautiful place!  The land was extensive.  The homes were massive.  And the air was clean, crisp, and quiet.  It was like being in a horse farm country … but only 15 or so miles from Charlotte.  Lovely place!

Local Buggy

The potluck was organized by Kara Cozier, founder of Local Buggy.  You know I am a sucker for anything organizing. 🙂

From their website:

Local Buggy™ is a website created to simplify SignUps. Members have the ability to organize SignUps for any number of participants at the local and national level. We even have an international membership in the United Kingdom! Our system is designed to coordinate SignUps without the hard to follow chain of emails, confusing spreadsheets, countless phone calls, and calendar invitations.

It was love at first sight!  We had a SignUp for the potluck where each person knew what the other was bringing and what other supplies were needed.  This would be an awesome website to use for the holidays!  😉

We had a massive array of food.  I tried out a Pinterest recipe but thought it was a little too … buttery.

What a potluck! 🙂

These cupcakes were adorable! I ate so much that I couldn’t possibly hold another thing — so I didn’t get to try these. :/

I got to know some of the ladies while chatting over Buffalo Chicken Dip and wine.  I really hit it off with one lady, Juliane Kilcoyne.  She is the founder and owner of Blooming Events.  I was drooling over her creations!

Juliane can help bring your party ideas to life with her Event Planning Packages and beautiful party creations! 🙂
