It was an eventful, yet happy and celebratory weekend!
Saturday I had a friend’s baby shower…and there’s nothing cuter than seeing all the cute baby clothes.
And on Sunday I celebrated another friend’s Bridal Shower, AND my aunt and uncle’s 60th birthdays!!
This morning I headed down to my blog-friend-turned-real-friend Elizabeth’s bridal shower!!
She is getting married in November, and today her bridesmaids threw her a beautiful shower down at her family’s house.
There were lots of gifts
And adorable cupcakes
I was also the first winner at Bridal Bingo! Booya!
I can’t wait for their big day!
Straight from the shower, I headed to my aunt and uncle’s house for a birthday bash that my cousins threw for them!
No lack of amazing food…
Fresh figs on Dubliner cheese…awesome combination!!
Giant bowl of tomato & mozzarella salad!!
The main dish…Lobster Rolls…tons and tons of lobster rolls
On hot buttery rolls. Drooling just looking at the picture now. I had one, and then split another with Brian later.
But I think my FAVORITE dish of the day was this Mexican Seafood Cocktail
It was similar to a cold gazpacho, but it had lots of crab meat, shrimp, and big chunks of avocado!
SOOooo delicious. The recipe is here on Epicurious, and I NEED to make this soon!!
There was also two huge Pavlovas for dessert (giant meringue topped with fresh whipped cream and strawberries), along with a pink champagne birthday cake!
It was a fun and delicious afternoon with family!
This weekend flew by, and sadly work tomorrow!
Question… what’s you’re favorite meal to make in the heat of the summer?? I feel like I’ve had less and less meals to post on here because I’m just not cooking as much or as creatively in this hot summer heat!!
