P.I.G Night: {Pinterest Inspired Girls Night}

What does a girl do when her son goes to visit his Dad for the weekend?

 Oh yeah, then your husband leaves town to go fishing?

Leaving just us two girls home by ourselves?

What is a girl to do?


You invite a bunch of girls over and have a Pinterest Inspired Girls Night...IN!

Which is exactly what we did last night.

My friend Melissa came up with calling it P.I.G.'s night. I thought it cleaver and it is now stuck.

In order to prepare for our night, I scoured over my Pin Boards and came up with a main course, dessert and a craft or two that we all could do.

The Cutting Edge of Ordinary's Gnocchi Mac and Cheese

The Cutting Edge of Ordinary  has a recipe for Gnocchi Mac and Cheese that I have had pinned for some time. I love gnocchi and I love mac and cheese. I was hoping that this recipe would be pure heaven and I have to tell you, it did not disappoint!

My Gnocchi Mac and Cheese
Oh and dessert! I was going to make healthy baked apples made in a crock pot. I have had that pinned for a super long time. However, in conversation with my co-worker we decided it was time to take a chance and make the Chocolate Chip Oreo Fudge Brownie Bars from Kevin and Amanda.


This is a triple layer threat of a dessert! Chocolate Chip cookie dough, Oreo's, and Brownies. My teeth hurt just looking at it! But as I stated my coworker reminded me that a group gathering would be the perfect time/place to try it out.  OH and it was yummy. Everyone at the party got Chocolate Wasted on this dessert!

Dessert (sorry for the shadows, I have no natural light in my house!)
Not going to lie, our crafts were a bit of a disaster!  I had wanted to make bath fizzies (aka bath bombs). But I could not find citric acid powder. I thought I had found it at Hobby Lobby but  when I got there, the employee had found stearic acid instead. I really wanted to scream at her that citric acid was spell C-I-T-R-I-C! I had unfortunately spent too much time driving to her store that I wasted what time I did have to find what I needed.

We attempted another craft I had just seen on Pinterest, making mini pom poms with a fork.

 I have to tell you all, these just did not work the way I thought they should. I gave them to my cat. She likes em.

We pitched making pom poms with a fork and just made them with our fingers. We then spent the night making our own version of cheer gloves. Of course, I had failed to think ahead that we would need extra scissors and extra darning needles.  So we were a little bottle necked at times.

The end result, was a lot of fun! A lot of laughs!

It was a total accident that Megs blocked Wendy's face. They were each trying to strike a pose with their cool gloves.

Go Team!
We were up till 1 a.m. making pom poms, laughing, and talking about being chocolate wasted over that dessert!  Oh yeah, and a great deal of time spent on Pinterest looking for ideas for our next P.I.G.'s Night {Pinterest Inspired Girls Night}.

But the fun does not end there for me. I woke up this morning thinking about our evening and decided to make breakfast from Pinterest too!

The Ultimate Egg Sandwich! Toast, Bacon, Cheese and an Over Easy Egg. Yep, I enjoyed every moment of breakfast this morning!

Happy Pinning Everyone! Because remember, we are looking at your pins!
