High Tea Wedding Shower

 In just a few short weeks, my beautiful little cousin (the one in white, above) will be getting married. If there is one thing that this group of ladies knows how to do, it is throw a shower!
To celebrate our Meggie, we showered her with love with a High Tea Wedding Shower. Guests were told on the invitation to wear their favorite High Tea Hat. Most obliged and it was so much fun! Some of the guests made their hats, some wore their daughters old Easter bonnets, others bought fancy new hats and fascinators. It was great seeing all the fun hats!
Of course, what shower would be complete without food? I can not thank my mom, aunts and a few cousins enough for helping me so much! We had Strawberry Pizza, Strawberry Soup, Cream Scones, Strawberry and Blueberry Scones, Artichoke Dip, Tea Sandwiches (cucumber, ham and chicken salad), Lemon Tea Cookies, and of course tea, tea, and more tea. 
 I am so happy for our Meggie! She has grown into such a beautiful young woman, inside and out, and I could not be happier that she will spend the rest of her life with Mr. B. He is such a nice guy! I wish them both the best.
We are all so proud of you Meggie!
It just doesn't seem right! She should still be 4, running around my moms kitchen table acting like a chicken and screaming "Chicken, chicken, bock, bock!", with her long, curly, red hair bouncing along. Where does the time go?
 I hope everyone had a great time. I have heard from a few people that fun was had by all. Now, off to put my feet up and rest a bit before we start this whole process over for MGs birthday party this weekend.

FROZEN Hot Chocolate

I am sure by now, most of you know that FROZEN the Movie is coming to theaters THIS WEEK (the 27th to be exact)! I am so excited!! My girls saw some of the FROZEN merchandise while we were at Walt Disney World and that is all they could talk about.....for days! It has been a rough school year for both of the girls so far. Mads is adjusting to being in the upper elementary, was dealing with a bully and gets super frustrated with math (even though she is really good at it). MG is adjusting to actually being in school, went through a time of having accidents at school and she just misses her mommy. To celebrate Mads good grades and MG going a month accident free, I decided to treat the girls with a few fun new toys and some hot chocolate. Once I heard that FROZEN merchandise was available at Walmart, I ran to stock up. While I was there, it hit me! I could have #Frozenfun with the hot chocolate and make FROZEN Hot chocolate! I just knew the girls would love it! I was k

Le Cellier - Chedder Cheese Soup Recipe Review

I first talked about this soup here .   I have to admit, was not real eager to try this soup.  I can not stand the taste of beer.  PERIOD!  It doesn't take much in a recipe for me to be able to taste it.  With that being said, the soup wasn't bad.  I would try it with ginger ale next time though. Before I tell you what I thought of the soup I need to be fair and tell you about some changes I made to the recipe. First, the recipe tells you to cook the bacon just to render out the fats, not to make crispy.  I did not render out enough of the fats and in fact next time, I would cook the bacon until it IS crispy.  I don't like limp bacon, I like my bacon extra crispy. Second, I TOTALLY forgot to cook down the onions and celery before adding the flour!  Ummmm......ooops! So my bacon was limp and my veggies were crispy!  HAHA! Next, I am not on a budget to be able to purchase "Aged White Cheddar" so good ol Yellow Sharp Cheddar it was! I did NOT add one tablespoo

Strawberries and Cream Instant Oatmeal | Recipe

I don't know about you but, we go through oatmeal like that is the only thing to eat on this planet!   Seriously a TON! My youngest would eat it for every meal and snack....every day....if I let her. Yes, the little packs can be cheap (if you can find a coupon and get them on sale) but it still adds up.  I used things I already had on hand so there was no extra cost to make this.  FREE is ALWAYS good!   I tried before to make little packets to keep on hand but that was a complete fail.  I have since reworked the recipe and am happy with the results.  I decided to just keep the oatmeal in a glass container this time and scoop out what we need, when we need it.  You can also make this into packets by just scooping the desired amount into zip-top bags. {Strawberries & Cream Instant Oatmeal}   12 Servings 6 Cups Quick Cook Oats 1 1/2 Cups Oat Powder 2 Cups Powdered Milk 1 - 1 1/2 Cup Sugar 1 Cup Freeze Dried Strawberries Directions f
