Table for 4
I like having people over. Really I do. I just keep forgetting this fact. Taylor and I are resolved to have people over more often. I mean, we have enough dishes. So, when the opportunity to hang out with some fun friends I don’t get to see often enough popped up last week, I thought—let’s cook dinner for them! And by “let’s cook” it means “I’ll go to the store and clean and make everything look cute and Taylor will cook.” I like this plan.
Cheese and fruit for apps. The jar is filled with pistachios and honey—a “recipe” I stole from the mad talented Erika (or was it the mad talented Becky?). Either way, those gals are hostesses with the mostessess. I’m scared to have them over because I’ll have to serve them something that I didn’t steal from one of their dinner parties. I hope they like Honey Nut Cheerios.
$10 flowers from Publix? Check.
Matchy matchy napkins? Check.
You caught me. I didn’t iron the tablecloth.
No food pictures due to wine and talking. So sorry.
So, Crate & Barrel just notified me that my drinking glasses are being discontinued. I have 12 of them. Actually, 24 of them. (Two different sizes.) Yet, I feel panicked that I have to go purchase a back-up set. Hello, Hoarderdom. Please tell me this is unnecessary.
Finally, remember this little guy?
Well, it made it to its new home in Virginia. And found a friend!
Winner Chaaron sent me this pic of the footstool safe and sound with the cutest guard-dog ever, Manny!
Oh, and remember the succulent I was so excited about?
Just as I feared.
Can’t win ‘em all.
