Back to the grind.

Yesterday I hosted my friends wedding shower, and we had such a great turnout! The food and cake were prepared by others, so all I had to do was open (and clean) my home for the guests.

My boys wanted to stay for the shower. "The ladies will love us!" Jon assured.

I made Oreo Truffles for each of the guests to take home. Traditionally they are made with milk chocolate, but I wanted them to be white, so I made them with white chocolate. They were good, but milk chocolate was far better.

A fun game: Everyone drew a wedding day "look" for the bride. She chose her favorite and the winner got a prize. Some were really cute!

Are you glad the holidays are over? While I certainly enjoyed having nearly 3 weeks off from work, sleeping in until 8 and having lots of family time, It's time for a regular schedule to return. These past few weeks have been jam packed full of places to go, things to do, and people to see. I'm ready for a fresh New Year- and even more so, I'm ready for Spring's fresh palate to take over this winter we're in the heart of. Can I get an Amen?
I don't make resolutions, but I have a lot to look forward to this year, and I'm excited of the possibilities of a few surprises too. What are you looking forward to this year? Did you make any resolutions?
