My Schedule for Summer's Remainder (sigh)

My Saturday consisted of what I will be doing every Saturday from now until football season- baby shower and a wedding.  This is what happens when you have an average of nine friends preggo at any given moment.  It's averaged because someone will pop out a peanut and someone else will get knocked up.  Miss Amy (long dress middle), was so wonderful to throw a shower for!  We had a lovely time (not something I often say about showers, as y'all know they are not my favorite, although baby is more fun than wedding).  Ames, I can't wait to meet little Bailey, and play with all the cool stuff she got Saturday!

I had a fab time catching up with Lou, lamenting our lawyerly lives.
And gorging myself on tomato sandwiches and asparagus rolls.  I don't know if it's in our Knoxville Junior League handbook or what, but asparagus rolls MUST be present at every baby shower.  Mmmm, they definitely make showers more pleasurable for me!

20 slices white bread
3 oz. blue cheese
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese
4 dashes Worcestershire sauce
20 asparagus spears, cooked
1/4 c. butter, melted

Trim crusts off bread. Flatten with rolling pin. Blend cheeses until smooth. Add Worcestershire sauce. Spread evenly on each slice of bread. Roll one spear in each slice. Dip in butter. Place on cookie sheet, seam side down. Bake at 350 degrees for 15 to 20 minutes. Cut in thirds. Serve hot. (Can be made ahead and frozen.)

So after hosting the shower, MOH helped me buy flowers for a party celebrating her little sister's (my fake little sister's) wedding.  Paige had a family only wedding, then a big fun party here to celebrate.  My parents were among the many hosts, but were out of town.

That's the new Sadie Sadie married lady in the middle.
Here's some of my flowers (and me and Lou).  Hee.

So has it been a busy wedding/baby season for you?  The baby population will really heat up in October (there's FOUR due), as will my dinner for new preparation.  All of us girls get on a rotation making meals for the new mamas- stuffed shells are my forte, but I think it's time to mix it up.  Any ideas?


  1. Love your dresses on this pics - too adorable! Thankfully, I'm past the many weddings, since most of my friends are old married gals with kiddos. But, I can clearly remember one year where it seemed I was attending - or in - a wedding every other month!

  2. I adore your dress with the pink belt - you are darling!

    No weddings or babies for us this summer - we're in a lull right now, which is fine by me!

  3. Oh those tomato sandwiches look amazing-and I am going to add asparagus rolls to my shower rotation.

    We have two weddings before football season and I'm hosting a shower opening weekend (have to make plane tickets to FL count double or triple sometimes).

    We have one wedding during football season (gasp), but at least it's in Auburn. Even though we have to miss homecoming in Gainesville-my husband wants to attend both the game and the wedding in the same day-ha!

    Love your dresses-tried on the tan and fushia one at Nordstroms a few weeks ago!

  4. you look darling! i love both of those dresses and that recipe sounds amazing!

  5. Cute outfits lady! I am so trying these recipes. Perfect for showers!

  6. You girlies are just too cute for words!!! And, I so want the first dress you are wearing. It looks divine on you. Xoxo-BLC

  7. First, you look gorgeous and totally skinny! You've got some guns! Also, do you have a photo of the aparagus rolls? I'm curious to see how they should look all put together because I'd like to give that recipe a try.

  8. What a fun weekend! Love your outfits! I think we've got more babies and baby showers this summer than weddings and bridal showers. Does that mean I'm officially old? Moved on past that "coupling" stage to baby stage. Yikes!!

  9. Such a cute blogs, and looks like you all have a lot to celebrate! How fun!

  10. Thanks Samma!!! I know showers aren't your favorite - but I just got to see this but wanted to let you know how much FUN I had and how much I appreciate y'all's hard work! And I loved getting all of my amazing presents too of course :):) Love xoxo

  11. Mmmm.... thank you for sharing the asparagus roll recipe! It looks delicious!!

    Looks like you've been a busy girl- enjoy all the festivites!


I love to hear from y'all, so drop me a line!
