Johnny's B-day party

Tonight we are going here, to play this,
For those of you that don't recognize that interesting photo, we are going to play whirley ball! Here is the set up:

1. Bumper Cars
2. With Lacrosse sticks
3. Throwing a ball into a basketball type hoop

Pretty interesting. Then we are off to Fox Sports to have dinner with John and his friends. I can't believe he's going be 22. That is nuts! He's still my little baby though:)

Meagan the Baker

Lately I have been adventurous in the kitchen. I think it's time I learn how to cook since I will be a "Baker" after all. I asked Bryan if he would take my last name, but he said no. So with that said here are a few of the yummy things I have made lately and the feedback from friends and family:

1. Tortilla Soup- Huge hit! Sunni says this is her favorite! Mom,Emi, Stal and Bryan all loved it as well.

2. Spinach Artichoke Dip- Used all of this except the chilies. It's super quick and easy. It only took 20 minutes to cook. I made it for our girls happy hour and they loved it!

3. Venison Chili- Absolutely amazing. I made it when it was cold outside and it was perfect.

4. Hamburger Casserole with mashed potatoes on top- I can't find the recipe on this one, but no worries it was my least favorite.

5. Funfetti Cake Balls- If you make these properly they are awesome! I put too much liquid in the white chocolate and ruined it. Note to self follow this recipe closely and if you need to make the chocolate thinner then add a dab of oil.

I'm looking forward to experiencing more recipes soon. If you have any favs you would like to share then let me know.

In honor of Fat Tuesday here's a little history behind why it is called that and why people celebrate this crazy day:

Fat Tuesday is an unofficial celebration that is generally recognized by those of the Catholic denomination of Christianity, or any by other group that fasts for the Lent during that same time (this would exclude the Eastern and Oriental Orthodox denominations, for example,for they do not generally celebrate Lent at the same time). It is celebrated on the day before Lent begins so that those that fast can "pig out" for a day before it is time to fast from gluttony and recognize the Feast of Resurrection. Hence the name "Fat Tuesday." The Feast of Resurrection, commonly known as Easter, is on a Sunday each year, and the fast of Lent lasts 40 days each year, according to Catholicism. Therefore, Lent always begins on a Wednesday, so Fat Tuesday is annual celebration. (Source-

Please behave and a have a fun night!

Bridesmaids dresses

So I'm thinking silver for the girls. Check out these options and let me know your thoughts:

1. Dessy Strapless dress
2. Dessy Halter (click the platinum on both color swatches) You have to look at the back it's super cute!
3. Another Dessy halter (you have to select the charcoal color to see the one I like)

I am trying to get something you can where everyday. However, that first one is really pretty! I guess you could wear that to another formal event.

I won't share with you what I think is most ideal because I want to hear other feedback first.

Since I'm going with short dresses, I can't use the line from 27 dresses, "And the great thing is you can shorten it and where it again"
