It is hard to believe that just over a year ago my good friend Austin finally popped the question to one of my best friends Emilie. And so their save-the-date card and invitation got added to our fridge. I did a quick total, and between R3 and I there are 13 save-the-dates or invitations on our fridge. Now I'll admit, some of these momentous occasions have already passed but 1. we need the magnets, and 2. if you put your photo on your invite there is a better chance you will stay on the fridge. i.e. John and Marissa from last June. You right remember them from the "This is what happens when the College of Ag friends get married" post.
Anyways, back to the subject at hand. Emilie's wedding is going to be extra special this summer because I am honored to be one of her bridesmaids. Under bridesmaid duty law is says... "you must throw the future bride a wonderful bridal show." OK so maybe I made that up, but I think it is an important part of the title. And with shower throwing, comes things like providing food and quenching thirst, i.e. my panic to learn how to make iced tea.
I would say the day went great. Emilie received some beautiful items for their new home, and I can't wait for her to serve me her famous lasagna with all the cookware she received. People even complimented me on my ice tea, and I would have to say not even in a pity kind of way! Great success.
I sent the I kiss better than I cook sign home with Emilie. I have one in my house too. Mac and cheese always a staple no matter what stage of life you are in.
Check out the lower right-hand corner for the iced tea. And the red bowl is a popcorn bowl from Emilie's other bridesmaid. Very cool.
