Hi Everyone. I am so not ready for it to be Monday. I forgot to take my allergy meds yesterday and slept with the windows open…meaning I woke up this morning all itchy, stuffy, puffy and dragging. Blah.
Wants to be in bed.
My weekend was great, but I was most excited about my friend Kara’s bridal shower. It was so fun and I’m pretty sure she had a great time.
I love the gift I made for her. It was a wine basket, but every bottle of wine represented a “marriage first.” The idea is to drink the bottle after each event. I had a bottle in there for moving in to their first house, first home improvement project, first road trip, adoption of their first kitty and their first anniversary. I put a cute little quote on each bottle and added some wine-themed kitchen towels to the basket as well.
I forgot to take a pic before I wrapped the basket, but I bet you can at least tell which bottles represent their first house and first kitty. I think my presentation was pretty rad 🙂
I’m a big loser and didn’t take any pictures at the shower. I was pretty busy
drinking sangria setting up and sorting gifts, so I never even thought of it. Here’s a pic of the amazing cupcake spread (stolen from Kara’s future sis-in-law, Sari).
The cupcakes were made by a family friend and were sooooo delicious. There were chocolate “hostess” cupcakes, lemon cupcakes with lemon buttercream and carrot cake cupcakes. I had a chocolate one and a lemon one. The chocolate covered strawberries were wonderful as well.
As for workouts, I totally vegged-out all weekend and didn’t do much in the fitness department. I should have to burn off some cupcakes, but I have plenty of workouts scheduled this week between a run and my boot camp classes.
Posting these pics has really made me crave some wine and a cupcake. Oops!
Have a great (allergy-free) day!
What’s your favorite kind of cupcake? For me, the more chocolate, the better!
