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.

    One of my favorite parts of my internship this summer was when the office got together for little parties! It was so great to hang out with people on a different level, and see what they could cook! Some of those ladies were impressive !
