One wedding down, one to go.
Everything was lovely. From the flowers:
I LOVE the burnt edges on the flowers. It kept the fabric from fraying, and gave an AWESOME effect of petals. I love it.
To the Bride and the cake. I have to combine the two, I didn’t take pictures like I shoulda. *sigh* I’m not very good at this. Be patient with me.
Jack liked the cake.
And yes there is a reason he’s half-naked baby… It was hot. Babies get grumpy when they’re hot, and baby suits, aren’t exactly cool.
We’ll just say he started the day like this.
You can’t see it, but there was a brown tie involved too.
Forgive my crazed smile. It had been a very long day. Jack screamed all through church. ALL through. So I was a little frazzled.
Know what made it all better?
Growing up, I wasn’t a big fan of fruit salad. It always had apples and oranges and bananas. And the apples and bananas were always brown.
The citrus juice over everything myth is a lie.
Then I got married. I learned a lot of things. One of them was that, fruit salad is AMAZING.
Strawberries, Kiwi, Bananas, Grapes, canned peaches. If you can, also add fresh pineapple. Sadly for us, Wal-Mart was out.
I’m still mad at them.
Open the peaches.
Dump em into a big bowl. Big bowls are essential. They hold a lot of fruit salad.
Watch weird sister-in-law proceed to eat all the peels.
Slice em all up and add to peaches. Kiwis. Not sister in laws.
Wash strawberries. They’re pretty.
Slice em up too.
And the bananas. You know the drill.
Add them all to the bowl and mix.
Pout because you forgot to take a picture of all the fruit in an unmixed gorgeous state.
Seriously… the contrast and colors were amazing.
But then again… it’s gorgeous all mixed up too.
1 box strawberries
1 can peaches
1 bunch grapes
1 pineapple – if you’re store is nice enough to have them.
Slice or chop everything but the peaches and grapes, and mix together in a large bowl.
You’ll wonder why man ever bothered inventing candy.
