recap: around the world potluck

Last night we had another meeting of the Triangle blog girls, like I mentioned in my Highlights of the Week post.

Laura of Taking Back My Twenties offered to host, even though she hadn’t met any of us before! Kudos to her for being daring and letting a group of crazy girls invade her apartment 🙂

A few of the Raleigh girls carpooled out to Durham to Laura’s amazing apartment. There was about a 20 minute round of oohs and ahs as soon as we stepped through the door. I am constantly struck by how much Durham has evolved since I left- these apartments are just one example.

The theme of the potluck was Around the World, which we somewhat achieved haha!A good start to any potluck!

The whole spread! My corn quinoa black bean salad, Laura’s banana split bites {from Oh She Glows}, Callie’s curry dill tuna salad, Elisabeth’s Lebanese food from Neomonde, Carrrie’s mojitos, Heather’s baguettes with French brie, and…

Sara’s crazy four layer funfetti cake!

 I made them throw up the Bull City sign since we were in Durham!

It’s always interesting to see how a group of very different people meshes, but the blog events always end up being fun. Although we blog on different topics, there’s a lot to the world of blogging which we can connect on. We got into an in-depth conversation on cyber-bullying, which I’m planning to write a post about soon.

Thank you to Laura for hosting and to all the other girls for coming from Raleigh and Chapel Hill 🙂
