We finally filed our 10-K at work last week so life should start returning to normal, and hopefully I will have more time to blog. Saturday morning I helped host a bridal shower for Jenn at our house. We decided to do a brunch buffet since the shower was in the morning. We had lots of yummy food including yogurt parfaits, my grandma's homemade cinnamon rolls, sausage balls, sausage pinwheels, blueberry and banana nut muffins, mandarin orange salad, fruit salsa with cinnamon/sugar pita chips, and breakfast casserole. I had been planning the shower for over a month and was so happy everything went as planned. We had a great turnout with about 35 guests, and Jenn received some fantastic goodies to celebrate her upcoming wedding. Congrats Jenn and Skaife! Can't wait for July 14th!
The mimosa bar was a big hit with the guests, and I thought it turned out really cute. Gotta love Pinterest for new ideas!
We had several different juices to mix with the champagne.

Amber wrapped her gifts in diaper boxes and started lots of rumors. It was really funny.
