We interrupt this post to say:
Happy Birthday SweetPea!!!!
My little angel is 21 today!!! I have no idea how it could be that I have a 21 year old. I might look old enough, but I certainly don’t feel that old! We miss you SweetPea! As I write this, he’s gearing up for the big birthday celebration with all of his friends. He hasn’t had any Mexican food since he’s been in AU and they’ve found a Mexican restaurant for dinner. How very exciting to celebrate your 21st birthday in Sydney! Be careful SweetPea and have a grand time!
Now, on to SweetiePie’s shower. MyDadLovesMeBestSister absolutely outdid herself! It was a beautiful shower and I’m pretty sure everyone had a great time.
We decided that, rather than play games, we would tie a quilt for the new couple. After everyone arrived, we all went to the sunroom where we had the fabric all ready on a quilt frame.
Many hands make light work! It only took us about 45 minutes to finish all the tying and take the quilt off of the frame. Everyone signed a block for the back of the quilt and I’ll bind it later. (Mama Bunny kept a watchful eye.)
After the quilt tying, we all
ate like pigs had some nice refreshments. And MDLMBS had the most beautiful flower arrangements for the shower. SweetiePie’s colors are black and white with bits of pink thrown in, so MDLMBS chose gorgeous pink flowers for the gift table. Because I’m a dope, I didn’t get a picture of the gift table until after the gifts were removed from it!
Anyway, the food was fabulous! In dopey move number 2, I didn’t get a nice picture of the buffet that MDLMBS had all set up. (What the heck — I was filling my plate!) You can catch a glimpse of it at the back of the gift table picture, under the congratulations banner. MDLMBS served ham and turkey mini-croissants, bruschetta, fruit kabobs, two kinds of yummy brie with crackers (one savory and one sweet) and lemon bar cookies cut into heart shapes. All with pink lemonade, among other drinks.
After some good food, SweetiePie opened many wonderful gifts. Along with a few that caused lots of laughs and raised eyebrows.
And to cap off our afternoon, MDLMBS ordered the MOST fantastic cake. It was a raspberry swirl cake with an awesome buttercream frosting. It’s apparently the dessert of choice among all of her friends. When one of my friends asked what kind of cake it was and MDLMBS told her, I thought my friend would faint on the spot — she said it’s her favorite cake. How I wish I could send you all a piece to sample!
It was the most perfect, happy day. Thank you forever MDLMBS! You’re the best ever!!! Now, I’ll leave the rest of you with a blurry picture of my favorite gift of the day, given to SweetiePie by MDLMBS. (Please excuse the red marks, the lemon bars and raspberries were on this platter.)
It says This day I will marry my friend, the one I laugh with, live for, dream with and love. I love this platter. It makes me all misty-eyed!
I hope all you wonderful peeps are having a great day. Oh! And happy First Day of Spring!!!
