Katelyn's Bridal Shower

Katelyn's aunt Cindy and cousin Maddison threw her a bridal shower this afternoon. We had a great time. Here are some pictures of the adorable decor, delicious food and fun...

Entry Way Decor

A Sweet Little Banner

Yummy Food (Oops. There were rolls in the basket.)

I love how Cindy and Maddi put the salad bowls inside the flower pots.

The yummiest Greek salad I've ever eaten (better than Olive Garden's and I love Olive Garden)!

Drink station and cute chalkboard tin with paper plates.

Knock Off Swig Sugar Cookies to make mini fruit pizzas.

Gift opening time...

My daughter and daughter-in-law. They're beautiful.

My newest grandson Asher. (Cindy made me take her face out of the photo.)

Flowers in pots as favors...

Maddison and Katelyn

Thank you so much Cindy and Maddi. You really ought to be professional party planners!

Chicken Bow Tie Salad

Chicken Bow Tie Salad is a favorite dish around our house. Since it is served cold, we especially like to eat it during the summer.


1 chicken breast, cooked and shredded
2 cup bow tie pasta, cooked according to package and drained
1/2 teaspoon salt
dash pepper
1 Tablespoon chopped green onion
1/2 cup Hidden Valley Cole Slaw dressing
1/2 cup mayonnaise
1 dash thyme
1 pinch ginger

Stir carefully and refrigerate overnight.

Before serving, stir in...

1/4 cup diced celery
1 cup red seedless grapes, halved
1 cup unpeeled red apples, cubed
1/2 cup pineapple tidbits, drained (optional)
2 Tablespoons sliced almonds

Serve immediately.

This recipe can easily be doubled or tripled for a crowd.

Gift Idea Using Rolo Candy

I received this for National Paraprofessional Day, but it could be changed up for just about anything.

A Beautiful Mess

Before beginning an essay for one of her college classes, Katelyn came to me and said, "This is my attempt to get organized. Do you have any other ideas?"


Funny thing is, regardless of her lack of organization, the girl shines! I love her.
