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!!!]
