Super party girls’ night!!
Quickly, because they are boring – afternoon strawberry snacks. The real deal + a Fruition bar, which I loved due to the multiple textures incorporated into the bar mush
Ashley had a super fun girls’ night party to celebrate one of her final nights in Charlotte before she moves to Colorado
She had a bunch of girls (and dogs + babies!) over for a Salad Bar + Painting!
Kelsey invited me up to the balcony – huh huh huh!
Ashley had a fun painting station set up for us to make little canvases of art
I always mess up my art by overdoing it when I should just put the brush down, but I was happy with the message
Art inspiration –
The creative juices weren’t flowing, but the wine was!! LURVED these stemless glasses. I need some. Matt, my birthday is 10.26!!
Appetizers – I nibbled on chips.
The Make-Your-Own-Salad Buffet was absolutely amazing!!!! I told Ashley she rivaled EarthFare 😉
Veg // Nuts
Proteins. Gosh I forgot how much I love grilled chicken. I feel like chicken is just so blah, but whenever I have it grilled it tastes so amazing. Note to self!
Those would be WHEATBERRIES!
We were each asked to bring a homemade dressing to the party. I made honey mustard – equal parts honey, lemon, mustard and olive oil with salt + pepper + garlic.
My salad was fabuloso. A little of everything.
Mas vino. I had 3-4 tiny glasses to equal about 1 to 1 and 1/3 real glasses. I like drinking this way – I feel like I get a lot of tastes but I don’t drink too much or too fast.
PENNY came out to play!!
And so did dessert!
These dark chocolates from Trader Joe’s were soooo good. Very dark, very good. I had about 3!
But the grilled ice cream sundaes were the real hit. Pineapples + balsamic peaches!
More ice cream was consumed. It was just so vanilley and good.
I had lots of fun being a mom to Penny and the babies! Little Bryce was only 6 weeks old!
And Liam was 9 weeks! Such cuties. My hands still smell like wonderful baby smell!
Party favors! ota.bars!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My loot – with 2 new flavors!
THANK YOU Ashley for such a fun party!!!!!! I’m going to miss you so much when you leave and we’ve only gotten to play twice 😥 xoxo
Off to the cupboard with you now, Chip. It's past your bedtime. Goodnight, love.
[Name that movie!!!]
