Welcome to the Columbus Nesties community page

Welcome to the community page of the Columbus Nesties!

We are a group of women loosely located in central Ohio who met largely while planning weddings through theKnot.com. We shared vendor references, planning tips and ideas, and developed a community of our own.

Now we meet regularly for bookclubs, get-togethers (gtg's), mommy playdates, and various other events planned by our members.

To date we have over 300 members on our forums, where we talk daily about day-to-day life and anything that comes to mind.

If you are already a Cbus Nestie (CBN), thank you for your participation and contribution to our large and friendly community!

If you are someone who is looking for a network of women in the Columbus area to meet and get to know, or to find personal references, please come check us out and introduce yourself!

Be sure to join our forums to meet fun, intelligent, active women in & around Columbus, read Classified Ads and find References, indulge in Baby Talk, or discuss just about any topic you like!

Dog Days of Summer: High Street in Old Dublin...restaurants and stores featuring events for families and their Pups (ie Pints with your Pup at Dublin Tavern and Pics with your Pup near Dominoes).

PAWS, is bringing several adoptable dogs and puppies to Dublins "Dog Days of Summer". We will be set up near Brazenhead at MJs Candy Bar (which is a very cool candy shop...might want to check it out!), and across from the Dublin Tavern at 55 S. High St. Dublin.

This event is all about helping save some awesome dogs. We are 100% volunteer-based and we need to have these event to pay the vet bills and feed the dogs. All dogs are in foster homes until they find a forever home. The event is to spread the word about homeless dogs and to raise money for PAWS.


July Bookclub

We met for July bookclub hosted by justEmily.

The book read was
The Last Lecture by Randy Pausch and Jeffrey Zaslow

Book Description:

"We cannot change the cards we are dealt, just how we play the hand."
--Randy Pausch

A lot of professors give talks titled "The Last Lecture." Professors are asked to consider their demise and to ruminate on what matters most to them. And while they speak, audiences can't help but mull the same question: What wisdom would we impart to the world if we knew it was our last chance? If we had to vanish tomorrow, what would we want as our legacy?

When Randy Pausch, a computer science professor at Carnegie Mellon, was asked to give such a lecture, he didn't have to imagine it as his last, since he had recently been diagnosed with terminal cancer. But the lecture he gave--"Really Achieving Your Childhood Dreams"--wasn't about dying. It was about the importance of overcoming obstacles, of enabling the dreams of others, of seizing every moment (because "time is all you have...and you may find one day that you have less than you think"). It was a summation of everything Randy had come to believe. It was about living.

In this book, Randy Pausch has combined the humor, inspiration and intelligence that made his lecture such a phenomenon and given it an indelible form. It is a book that will be shared for generations to come.
