Current Happenings

It has been a couple of weeks since last I posted. What have I been doing? Taking a vacation?

While a vacation sounds nice, it is not what I've been up to. Last week my brother and sister-in-law came into town, and my mother threw them a couples baby shower. (I'm going to be an auntie! I'm so excited :D) It was done very nicely, and thanks to much help from friends, it reached a professional, magazine photo shoot level (at least to my eye).

The invitation was drawn by my mother:
Please note that relevant information has been left out or changed.

The menu line up was fantastic:
Pulled pork, roasted zucchini, asparagus, stuffed baby mushrooms, sausage, coleslaw, salad with raspberries and blueberries, and mom's homemade macaroni and cheese. Oh, it was gorgeous.

Of course, a meal isn't complete without dessert.....and that is where my contribution came in. Mom designed a "Milk and Cookies" bar. Cowboys, Monsters, Lavender Shortbread, Triple Chocolate Chunk, Triple Play (Chad renamed them "Cal Ripkin), Snickerdoodles, and of course, Chocobloc.

This party idea is so cute and refreshing, it makes me want to invite my friends over for milk and cookies. Who can turn down a cookie?


  1. what a wonderful event all around.Thanks for sharing. On the cookie table, which are the lavender cookies? Incidentally YUM-O

  2. HI Monica! Thanks for looking at my blog! I didn't realize until your comment that the lavender shortbread cookies didn't show up in any of the pictures from the party. I shall have to post about them shortly.

    (They are heart shaped cookies which have white chocolate drizzled over the top.)

  3. This combination of milk and cookies are perfect.I love this concept.Pooh baby shower
