Alright, now that it’s June I suppose I should actually plan this party I was talking about for Chicago Pride.

So, here we go: come to my house for a queer mom and mom-to-be Pride potluck on Saturday, June 23rd, from 11am-3pm!

It’s kind of a small house, so we’ll be in the yard, too (hopefully it doesn’t rain). Bring something to share and we can all hang out and catch up (or meet! Yay!) and do proud things—maybe I’ll even go get us a piñata! If people are excited and want to do more once the party is over, there’s pridefest in Boystown and the Dyke March in Uptown later in the afternoon, and of course the parade on Sunday.

Let me know if you’re planning to come so I can have an idea of what to expect, and of course PM me for more info on where this is, how to get here, etc.

She's here! joy.gif

Anything you like! I'm going to make a pasta salad (with rainbow pasta!) and get a watermelon and some drinks. So anything that isn't that should be good. smile.gif

It's annoying when anyone plans anything during Pride weekend.  They should know better.  :)

 

I'm jealous.  I wish I could go and hang out with y'all.  Have fun!

gah... I don't think we'll be able to make it. greensad.gif our ignition column in our vehicle has failed, they said the part won't be in 'til Friday or Monday... :/ so if it comes in first thing on fri and it gets fixed by the end of the day, then we'll be there but I'm not hopeful. i was so excited to see those of you that i've already met and meet those that i haven't. bummer.

Barring infectious disease, we'll be there.  We even skipped story time this week so the boys wouldn't be exposed to hand, foot and mouth.
