My girlfriends and I threw a baby shower for the next gal out of our group to have a baby. Here we are all ready to go (minus baby mama, I'm sure she was busy!)
The five of us have been through it all, dating back to elementary school, and when we get together every few months, it's like nothing has changed. We pick up right where we left off.
Do you still keep in touch with school friends? If not, I challenge you too - friends make the world go round.
We opted for a buffet style brunch baby shower and lets just say I walked, or better yet, rolled out, stuffed.
Missy (to the right of me, above) works at a fabulous chocolate shop, Lillie Mae's, and she definitely knows how to cover her strawberries and pretzels. I only had one, or two, or really whose counting?
We also feasted on three different egg casseroles (veggie, ham and sausage). And just because I knew you'd ask for it, I included the recipe below. So easy! Jenelle also brought melt-in-your-mouth zucchini muffins and caramel pecan biscuits (or at least that is what I'm calling them until she sends me the recipe).
I ate enough for both lunch and dinner combined.
Holding this little newborn today made me think back - was little man really this little? He's such a husky guy these days, it's easy to forget.
And, about the little man - he is starting to walk! Yes, I have an early walker on my hands. He can now take about 5 steps unassisted. Along with getting his front teeth in, this could just be a hell of a week.
Basic Egg Casserole
1 can evaporated milk
1 t. ground mustard
2-3 c. shredded cheese
3 c. hash browns
2 slices of cubed bread
toppings of choice (veggies, ham, sausage, etc.)
Spray a 9x13 casserole dish. Lay hash browns in bottom of the pan and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Next layer in cubed bread and toppings. Whisk eggs, milk and mustard and pour into pan. Top with shredded cheese.
Cover and refrigerate overnight. Remove from fridge 30 minutes prior to baking. Bake at 375 degrees for one hour.
*For veggies casserole, I sauteed onion, green pepper, jalapeno, garlic and mushrooms over medium heat until tender*
Everyone enjoy the rest of their weekend! I plan on doing NOTHING.
