Shower Number Three!

As if it wasn’t enough that my family/bridemaids threw me a shower (and amazing bachelorette party), then my neighbors threw Adam and I a shower… today at work, there was ANOTHER shower!
I don’t know how many of you work in an office, but a food-based event is always popular and gets everyone in an uproar. There are actually three of my fellow employees getting married this fall, too, so it was a group wedding shower for the four of us.
My plate: zucchini square (delish), panzanella salad, fresh fruit and veggies, and lots and lots of desserts. I tried two different types of chocolate chip cookies, a “magic” cookie bar (read: magic=butter+sugar), and of course, cake!
Check out the beautiful cake (from a local bakery we sampled wedding cakes at but decided we couldn’t afford):
You can’t tell from the photo but the icing is metallic and shimmery and beautiful (but not the kind I like).
Our coworkers presented us with generous giftcards on top of all the good eats! I contributed some cookie dough balls and a twist on granola bars… recipe to come soon.
In the spirit of “thankful Thursday”, I just had to say how thankful I am to not only have generous family and friends, but neighors & coworkers, too! Everyone is helping to make this wedding experience memorable.
