Been Busy

Wow, it's been a while since I've posted last! I have been kept VERY busy for the last two weeks. First of all, a week ago I did a food demonstration for our Fantastic Friday our Relief Society put on. I showed everyone how to make a pie crust as well as how to make a pumpkin pie and a chocolate pecan pie. It was a HUGE success! Everything ran so smoothly and people were so surprised with how easy making pies actually is. The biggest compliment I got that night was when people asked me what culinary school I went to and if I would bake pies for their families for Thanksgiving. Can you believe it! How fun it was!!

My latest adventure happened last night. I hosted a girls' night out for the girls my age in my ward. There are so many new girls, my goal was to get to know them and for them to get to know us. Mission accomplished! We had so much fun!!! Nine girls ended up coming and everyone brought some food for all of us to chow down on while visiting. It was sooooooo good! We also had a masseuse come over so that everyone could have a 30 minute massage while they were here. I transformed Brynnlee's room into a getaway with candles strewn all over the room. It was great! I also created some centerpieces for the appetizer table as well as the dinner table that turned out really nice and EASY with candles (of course) to give it a luxurious feel. And as we hung out, Michael Buble serenaded us all night long! It was a night none of us girls will soon forget! For all the complaining and stress I had beforehand, it was SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO worth it - it always is! I LOVE entertaining!!!!

Here are some pictures of our terrific night...

These are the invitations I made! Fun, huh?!

This is only half of the girls that came. It was such a fun night; I'm already thinking of when to do this again!
