March Parties

March has definitely been full of crazy weather.  I've spent days bundled up in a coat and scarf and days in short sleeved tops.  For the most part the weather has been great - we've been enjoying all of the sunshine for which Utah is known.  After getting settled in to our new home with several days of warm temperatures we woke up to this in our backyard...
Luckily it melted by that afternoon and the next day the temperature was back in the 50's.  I have to admit, even though we've enjoyed the snowy winter, I'm ready for summer.

March was also full of parties.  There was a baby shower-cookie swap for our sweet friend Hilary who is due any day now.
The goodies
Of-course I had to sample one of each. You know, to be polite.

Not the guest of honor at this baby shower, but how cute is Emily with her baby bump...

With the Junior League's March Madness, Hayley, Emily, and myself went to the Dream Dinners party.  We discovered a great way to have good, healthy meals without spending hours in the kitchen.  You go to Dream Dinners where they have all the ingredients ready to assemble with directions at each station.  All you have to do is put them all together in large ziplock bags, take them home, and put them in the freezer.  When you're in need of a quick dinner just thaw and throw it in the oven.  Everything was delicious and so easy.  We've already made a second trip for more meals.  

Also in March,  fellow ortho wives Suzanne and Katie threw an Oscar's party.  We all created dishes inspired by nominated movies and came together to watch the awards show.
Some even attended in red carpet inspired attire.
We had a great time discussing the best and worse dressed along with all of the movies.

  1. Wow! It sounds like it's not very lonely for you while your husband is working so much... That gives me hope for a bright future! haha And yes, it is polite to sample every cookie. I have to agree :)
