OC Martha Wannabes

I recently signed up for a meetup group called “The OC 20-30 Somethings Crafty Martha Wannabe Meetup Group”, and I attended their 2 year anniversary party and potluck yesterday.  I was very nervous, but excited to be meeting about 20 new women.  Everyone was very friendly and I felt comfortable in no time at all!  Everyone was required to cook up a dish or dessert, and I decided to make a peach cobbler since peaches were on sale – and who doesn’t love a sale??  After going through 15 or so recipes for peach cobblers online, I decided to just experiment and develop my own recipe for this tasty dish.  Unfortunately I didn’t have time to take pictures, because I was in a rush to get it in the oven so I could get ready for the party.  I was late about an hour, but the hostess was just glad I was able to make it *smile*.  I’ll post the recipe for my “Spiced Vegan Peach Cobbler” when I remake the dish and take some pictures of the process and finished product.  I was very happy with the result 🙂


After we stuffed ourselves with all that yummy goodness, we got to paint a small canvas and birdhouse.  The first thing that popped into my head was Totoro, so I used that as my inspiration for my artwork.  Here is how it turned out


I was also able to reconnect with an old classmate from high school, which was really great!  I hadn’t spoken to her since high school (about 6 years now) so it was really fun being able to hang out with her and I came to find that we actually have a lot more in common than our first names 🙂 Looking forward to spending more time with her and the other women in this group!

ImageEdit:  If you are in the area and are interested in joining the group, you can sign up through their website on Meetup.  You don’t have to be artistic or creative – as long as you have an interest in crafts, diy, and such, you will have an awesome time learning while making new friends 🙂

    You will definitely need around five seconds of warm up schedule as well as cool
    down schedule throughout each workout. Not all women suffering from hot flashes can take antidepressant medications, especially women suffering from a form of mental illness.
    Every man looks good in them; I don’t care the age, weight or height.
