My Girlie Girl and I were invited to cousin Amanda’s bridal shower a few Saturdays ago. Exciting news right? I’m laughing as I re-read this.
Can I take just a minute of your time to tell you all about Amanda?
This gal. This beer drinkin’, f-bomb droppin’ kind hearted sweetheart of a gal -Amanda. Oh, and her favorite word is “Amazeballs“
She’s marrying a really sweet guy, the Love of Her Life-
And they are going to live happily ever after with their ducks named Polly, Dolly, Tex and Rex.
I don’t make this stuff up people
We were asked to bring a dessert to the shower since the family was preparing all the food themselves. (Which I love, by the way.) There’s always such an awesome variety of meats, salads, and of course desserts to fill the ‘ole chinet paper plate up with. Sometimes I have to make two trips to get it all!
Yes, I am that gal.
I decided to bring mini fruit pizzas. I dug out my Mother In Laws recipe from many, many moons ago. And was a little more than surprised when I found it in a little recipe tin full of cards from when we were first married in 1993.
She used to make fruit pizza upon request, as a “birthday cake”, candles and all.
I cheated the recipe a little by using pre made sugar cookie dough, which I probably won’t do next time. The pre made sugar cookies were a touch too sweet.
Here’s to Amanda & Brandon! (polly, dolly, tex, and rex too)
