Suzette is getting married! We had so much fun cohosting her shower yesterday. The great thing about collaborating with all the girls is that this was a non-stress event. We each contributed things we were good at and the combination of our strengths and talents made a lovely little party. Many hands make light work. It was a joy to be involved and to celebrate Suzette's happiness.
We started with the healthy things. We had lemon-lime water and a beautiful veggie tray. And what bridal shower would be complete without those yummy chicken salad croissant sandwiches? I love the combination of grapes, celery, and cashews! We had lemon shortbread cookies and good old chocolate chip. And then we had this gorgeous hot chocolate bar with so many toppings--beautiful and delicious! Everyone got to take home a bag of what I call "frosted popcorn." We melted almond bark and mixed in orange oil drizzling that over the popcorn. My husband loved it when I brought some home from the party.
When everyone left and we were cleaning up, Brenda said, "Just like old times, huh Girls?" Back in our single days, we hosted and Hosted and HOSTED so many gatherings so we could mingle with as many single adults as possible. All of this was on the heals of our potluck dinner with spouses the evening before. Yeah, we all know how to load each others' dishwashers.
All weekend I've felt so blessed that I have this wonderful association with these incredible women and their husbands. We have been so loved by dear friends! It was a joy to work in harmony and have everything go so smoothly. We are looking forward to being in the temple with Suzette and Kory when they begin their eternal covenant marriage. It's a wonderful life!
