So, since it is now summer time (hurrah!) you know what that means…wedding season! (And also summer event eating…)
My good friend Leah is getting married in July, and I am super pumped to be a part of her big day. I am a bridesmaid! I love attending the weddings of friends, and I love it even more when I get to be involved in them. It makes me feel special and important.
Saturday was Leah’s first official wedding event: the shower.
And I had my first official task as bridesmaid: wrapping paper garbage duty. It was an important job and I took it very seriously. Garbage bag stuffing is an art I tell you.
My other job was to make Leah a bra (hats are boring) out of paper plates and attach all her bows to it. I also took this very seriously, and the bra worked out pretty well!
Leah looked so pretty. I looooved her dress.
She got a ton of great gifts, and so many for entertaining. I told her I will be hanging out at her house all summer so she can serve things to me while I leisure around on her patio in the sunshine. What, she can’t let them go to waste…
And of course the shower included my favourite thing…food! Ohh the food.
There were quite a few of my favourite appetizers as well (cheese ball and taco dip specifically), so I had definitely already been doing some quality food table stalking before this spread was brought out. I was already nearly full, but mini sandwiches are pretty much my favourite things in the world (remember I inappropriately associate funerals with mini-sandwiches), and I’ve never met a samosa I didn’t like either. Or a deviled egg, really. I loaded up my plate and everything was great (especially the spinach salad in the above photo on the left…so, so good).
And you know there was cake…
My slice was heavy on the buttercream icing, so I was obviously in love.
I had a really fun time eating and chatting with everyone. My friends Janet and Candis were there as well, so the bride and I made sure to get a pic with their lovely selves.
And the other bridesmaids, though two were missing…
I am excited for the rest of Leah’s wedding festivities with those gals!
After the shower, I drove into the city to meet my friend Lisa for a drink. By the time we made it out it was quite a bit later, and I was feeling a little snack-a-lacky… I planned on ordering something little, but then the panzerotto on the menu caught my eye, and then this happened:
That thing was amazing, but it was not small. I was dying about halfway through…just so full. I sadly couldn’t finish it. It was extremely cheesy, so therefore extremely delicious. AND I love that it came with extra pizza sauce, because I love things a little saucy and I frequently eat specific things for the sauce. Like spaghetti.
Anyway, a good weekend all around, for sure! Hope you guys all had a great one as well, and if you’re American I hope you’re having a fab Memorial Day. I will be thinking of you as I slave away at my desk today! It’s okay, I like it.
