My First Open House!

I had the wonderful pleasure and honor of hosting the ladies of Journey in my home yesterday! It was such a great morning. We had tons of wonderful food and lots of great conversations. I got to know so many ladies much better. We had time to just visit and it was really nice. Some of the ladies even sat down with our wedding album and got to see a whole different side of me and John. I look forward to so many more events like this!

There were so many cars there - that my neighbor - a sweet little lady next door who has lived there since the 50's - came over to see what was going on! She talked for a while at the back door with Michelle and I! She even thought Michelle and I were sisters! What a compliment for me!

Of course I did a major faux pax when it comes to cooking! I made 3 things that I had never made before for ladies that have never had my cooking! Danger Danger! However, the fruit dip came out great! The Armadillo Eggs - were a hit even though I made them way to early on Friday, and the Monkey Bread was nice too - even though I burned it a little! Thanks to my Mom, Berdie, and a nice online recipe for helping me make the food part a hit! I couldn't have done it without you!

If you weren't able to come - don't worry! I'll be having more things at my house and would even love to just have a cup of coffee with you! Please feel free to call me anytime!

Here are some photos from the day:
