Jenna's Bridal Shower

I just tried this sandwich cake for my daughter's bridal shower...gotta was a fun challange and I pretty much rocked it!  I changed up the ingredients, left out the seafood accents from this example I found on pinterest.  Much easier than I thought =)
 I decorated mine with parsly flowers, leaves, cilantro leaves, green onions, radishes, thyme flowers and some grated carrot.

I used a square loaf of unsliced whole grain bread from the store.  I did three fillings.  I wished I had a picture of it sliced. My daughter probably got some professional looking shots. If she did I will post later. 

                                           Meg in her domain

 Guest favors made by Emily one of Jenna's bridesmaids...choose yours on the way out.

 One:  pk cream cheese, a few tb orange marmalade, 4 tb herb de provence, 4 tb goat cheese, grated     carrots, walnuts

Two: pk cream cheese, cilantro, 3 tb feta cheese, garlic salt, mango, pecans

Three: pk cream cheese, cucumber, radish, green onion, red peppers. garlic salt, sprouts.

Fun weekend, but I am so exhausted...let me count the ways...

Hello Life Screaming By!

 Out for dinner on our 36th Wedding flying by us at break neck speed =)
 The roses are in full bloom and I have little time to spend with them, but I get at least one posy walk in a day!  These shots are from the front courtyard.  I will post some of the fluff going on in the back later this week.

 I have recently started an art based community program for underprivileged kids in town.  I find this one of the most rewarding things I can do, combining my passion with their passion for art and creativity.  They are all extremely talented and soooo worthy of a tiny piece of my week. I adore these students!
 My sis hanging out with me and the class on her visit her last week.  She got a peek at my world...and hurried back to the peace and tranquility of Philipsburg.  I think I am gonna head back there to join her after the wedding and get me some of my own peace and tranquility  =)
I am heading off first thing in the morning to pick up Jenna's wedding dress in will be a fun but emotional day!
