Macaroni Kids!

Man, I love mac & cheese. Not the "blue box" kind - but really yummy homemade mac and cheese. It's so bad for you though, all of that cream and cheese and noodles - I can never bring myself to make it, the guilt - oh the cheesy guilt.

Macaroni really has absolutely nothing to do with what I'm writing about today...other than the fact that it's the name of the TOTALLY AWESOME WEBSITE I'VE BEEN FEATURED ON!

Have you heard of Macaroni Kids? If not, you must check them out. It started in the Hamptons (I'm sorry but am I the only one who thinks of P-Diddy and his parties when I think of the Hamptons...?) by two friends who wanted a place where all of the local family/kid-centered events and activities for the area could be found. Macaroni Kid was born. They spread to cities all over the country and now people everywhere can find great current and local information in one place. The best part is, each local site is run by a local mom. If you check the national Macaroni Kid website, and there ISN'T one set up in your area - YOU could be the one to run it! YOU could be a hero to moms and dads all over your town! I highly suggest checking them out, signing up for the local newsletter and getting involved!

Robin, a client of mine in Texas, who's party I'll be featuring soon, is friends with Sarah, the woman who runs the Macaroni Kids website in my area. Robin contacted Sarah, letting her know about Le Poppy Design, one thing led to another and whamo! Little ol' me is featured on Macaroni Kids! I couldn't be more excited and I couldn't be more honored that Robin was so pleased with my work that she felt the need to spread the word. I never guessed in a million years that I would develop such special relationships with virtual strangers - just by designing birthday parties!

Be sure to check out the fabulous write up on Le Poppy Design on my local Macaroni Kid site and stay tuned as there are some big things planned for the future! If you're local - check out some of those awesome give-aways and sign up for the newsletter - you won't regret it!
