Shower Success

Pro: I slept like a baby last night.
Con: My party planning duties are officially over. :(

Jodi and Matt's shower was Saturday and it was SO FUN! The night went remarkably well, Jodi and Matt said they had a great time, and they scored lots of great things to start their married life in style. I'm kind of sad it's over because it was so much fun putting everything together for them. Luckily the bachelorette party is right around the corner!

There were tons of compliments on the food, so this Friday I will be posting most of the recipes. (I know I have sucked at foodie friday lately, but this friday should make up for the last month and then some) Here's a sneak peak of the menu, so if any of these look good come back Friday and they should be posted.
  • Fajitas (no recipe, bought pre-marinated from a mexican meat market)
  • Guacamole
  • Cheese Dip (also known as queso... my family is weird and we call it cheese dip)
  • Chicken Enchilada Dip
  • Baked Artichoke and Jalapeno Dip
  • Spinach Parmesan Pinwheels
  • Sopapilla Cheesecake Bites
  • Regular and Hazelnut Brownies
  • Strawberry Lemonade Cupcakes (previously blogged about here)
  • Sangria
Lucky for us it was only 102 degrees in Dallas on Saturday. (you can almost see the sarcasm dripping off that sentence, can't you?) But surprisingly a lot of people hung out in the backyard. The evening ended with tequila shots and quite a few of us (including the bride and groom) turning the shower into a late night pool party. I would say that deems it a successful evening right there, wouldn't you?

Thank you to my aunt for providing me with such wonderful crowd-pleasing recipes and all the hosts for all of your amazing help! Pictures to come!
