hey friends! this weekend has been super fun filled to the max with friends, family, fitness & food – aren’t those always the best?
something that sucks about getting older is the fact that you and your girlfriends have lots of other things going on in their lives – we get older – boys, husbands, jobs, family obligations, kids, and other random things tend to come up and it gets harder and harder to get your solid group of girlfriends together on a frequent basis
some of the ladies & me through the years – don’t you love our ‘it’s better in the hamptons’ urban outfitter t-shirts that we sported for our post-prom after party? we thought we were the coolest kids around – renting a house in the hamptons for 2 days and guzzling beers like they were going out of style
those were the good old days
last night one of the girls in my group of besties hosted a post-holiday girls night – her and her husband just bought a beautiful home – and we pretty much demanded that she have a holiday party there
we decided to make it appetizers & dessert pot-luck so everyone brought a dessert & an appetizer.
there was SO much food – probably a little overboard for 6 girls
i went for it and brought bacon & guacamole bites for an appetizer
i used trader joe’s turkey bacon & trader joe’s spicy guacamole – i tried it with regular bacon at first but it wasn’t easy to cut and get into good squares – turkey bacon worked out beautifully – and they were a huge hit!
for dessert i brought paleo chocolate chunk cookies
they were delicious – not on the sweet side at all – for the chocolate chunks i chopped up two bars of chocolate (a salted peanut crunch and a dark chocolate bar from the chocolate room in brooklyn) the chthat i had chillin’ in my freezer (yes i keep my chocolate in the freezer – it tastes best that way!)
husband eating appetizers – he identified the trader joe’s guacamole in 2 seconds flat.
typical friend picture progression. seated to standing – obviously. anyone else battle for the non-end positions in pictures…?
love girls night.
love to love you <3
cawfee tawk! do you have girls night with your lady friends? do you have a good solid group of girlfriends – how often do you see them?
