Cocodot: My New Favorite Online Invitation Site

by Jillian Leslie on

I first learned about the online invitation site, Cocodot, from watching the Techcrunch 50 conference, an event put on by the tech blog, TechCrunch, highlighting some of the newest technology startups.

I thought Cocodot's invitations looked cool, but what hooked me was the free trial.  After having used Evite so many times, I wasn't going to step up and pay for an online invitation.  Crazy.

Brilliant Way to Have a Frugal Sweet 16

by Jillian Leslie on

I came across this blog post and thought this was a great way to throw a party without having to pay for it.

Instead of an official Sweet 16, with invitations, food, and the lot, this guy sent out a text,  said that he was having his Sweet 16th birthday at a certain local skating rink with the date, time, & how much it cost to get in.

The Party Planning Continues...

by Jillian Leslie on

So the invitations to my daughter's party are out.  The responses are trickling in.  While my intention was to keep it small, I don't think I'm going to be successful.  Now I'm planning on about 30 kids, 45 adults.  That's a lot of mouths to feed.  So for my menu...

45 inch sandwiches from Bay Cities Deli in Santa Monica.   They make big Italian sandwiches on fresh baked slightly sour, slightly sweet bread.   Their "godmother" and "caprese" sandwiches are their most famous.  We'll order a few of both and maybe a turkey and cheese.
