Words & Wine

Friday night was our first book club meeting. I think everyone had a really nice time. As some of the girls told me that night I am going to be the historian of our book club. I took plenty of pictures to document our first meeting. Betsy did a nice job of setting up the atmosphere. I proceeded to set up some great shots so people who couldn't come could see how it went. The girls were making fun of me at first when I set the book up by our dinner, but afterwards I showed them the picture they really like it. :) 

The name of the book is The Guernsey Literary and Potato Peel Pie Society, we had a baked potato bar for dinner. We are trying to have our dinner coordinate with the book in some way. We thought a potato bar would be perfect and not too hard to make. Betsy, who was our hostess, supplied the potatoes and each girl was to bring a topping and something to drink. 

We had plenty of wine...I can't believe we drank most of it. Although we had a good number of ladies. Once we made our potatoes it was time to discuss the book. We chatted about our likes and dislikes. In the back of the book there were questions we could ask and go through so we picked a few of those too. After we finished talking about the book we needed to figure 3 things out...
1. Selection of our next book 
2. Decision on when & where our next meeting will be
3. Come up with a new name instead of boring Ladies Book Club

By the end of the night we were able to answer all 3 questions.
2. Michelle will be hostess since she lives in a Frank Lloyd Wright inspired house and it will be on April 17th
3. Words & Wine Club

I think it was a very successful 1st book club meeting. 
Here is to many more...
