My Sister is Getting Married! Bridal Shower Edition!

My younger sister is getting married!!! I'm beyond excited for her and her future husband. The wedding is about 5 weeks away! That seems so close, yet so far!

A few weeks ago we hosted her Bridal Shower. I believe it was enjoyed by all...except Amy's phone incident. Sorry Amy! Overall it was a great time! My duties included assisting with the games and of course, making dessert. No biggie lol.

So here I wanted to share some of the activities we had and maybe it will help someone else out that's planning a shower.


  1. Put A Ring On It
  2. Bridal Bingo
  3. Who Knows the Bride Best?
  4. Kissing Booth
  5. Who Has The Groom?
  6. Pass the Gift
We also had a date night idea jar. We had everyone to write ideas for dates on Popsicle sticks and presented it to her in a mason jar.


Put a ring on it was simple. Each guest was given a fake bling ring. We purchased them from Party City. If anyone said "Bride" their ring was taken. The person with the most rings at the end of the shower won. Except we had to switch it up to make it more difficult because no one said Bride! So we changed it to words that begin with the letter "S" and had a winner.
Put A Ring On It Winner!
Bridal Bingo was fun. Guests filled in a BINGO card with gifts they thought (knew) the bride would receive. The first to get BINGO won. We had 3 winners.

For the Who Has The Groom Game, I found a template on The Wedding Chicks of the tuxedos and then I printed out a bunch of pictures of guys (some gorgeous, some not) and 1 picture of the groom. I cut and pasted the heads of said men on the tuxedos and put each one in an envelope. We passed the envelopes out to each guest and told them when to open them. The guest with the groom won the prize. I had intended to tape them under each chair, but ran out of time.
Who Has The Groom?

 Who knows the bride best was a list of questions that we had Sherise to fill in. Whomever had the most correct answers won. None of us felt like we knew her very well and it was hilarious!

The Kissing Booth was a mason jar full of Hershey's Kisses. The person to come closest to the correct number of kisses won the jar.

Pass the gift was an interesting little twist. We had a gift in a box. It was a gift card for Dollar Tree. It was passed around as Sherise opened gifts. Every time she opened something that contained the color RED it was passed to the right. When all the gifts were opened, the person holding the box won.

We held the shower at California Dreaming (great food) so that none of us would have to cook...with the exception of me baking lol.

The bridal party all wore white and the theme for the desserts was "All White Everything!"

The dessert table included white cake pops, white candy coated pretzel rods, vanilla cupcakes with vanilla bean buttercream, and white chocolate cookies.

We also had popcorn from Popology in Baton Rouge, LA as favors.

The Bridal Party!

Life and its accomplishments should be celebrated. My friend retired. He left me and now I’m all alone. Not really lol, but he was surely something special to me. I imagine he will spend many days on various golf courses and he will learn new ways let his chickens entertain him. I’ll definitely stay in touch for the eggs! (Joke!)
In honor of his second retirement, we threw him a party. He protested. He did NOT want a party. He thought he didn’t want a party. I’m sure he’s as happy as a hen that he let us do it for him. He was scared no one would come, but they did! And he was overjoyed and overwhelmed with love. Aside from coordination duties, I wanted to make him a few things from my heart. I made him golf themed cupcakes, a loaded chicken salad, shrimp and black bean caviar and punch. There was a tremendous amount of food. We tend to equate love with food, so he should know just how much we care.
In his farewell speech he told a room full of people that 1. I am his soul mate (but not …

Black Panther: Movie Review

Please tell me y'all have seen the movie? If you haven't, don't read this post!

Let me give you a little bit of my back story on this Marvel Cinematic Universe. I am a Marvel fan. I don't read the comics, but the movies?! I'm here for them. Some of them are blah, but I watch them anyway. Why? Because usually they overlap and share stories. So, in preparation for the opening of Black Panther, I watched ALL of the Marvel movies in order of the stories, not the release date. I followed CNET's guide and it was pretty accurate. I did not watch the TV shows because I would still be watching. You don't have to. The movies will fill you in pretty well.

Now, for what I thought.

1. This movie was beautiful! The colors, the wardrobes, the technology, the natural hair, the beautiful black people that starred in this film, it was amazing!

2. The women. OMG. The WOMEN! The strong women in the movie inspired me. Okoye makes me want to shave my hair back off. Nakia makes …

Soup(er) Sunday!

This past Sunday I hosted a Crafty with Canon party. I won the party through House Party (I love this site!).

Initially I was planning to do a few different finger foods. Well, the temperature dropped and I wanted soup. And chili. So I made both! And my sister also made a soup that was super delicious. I used my usual go to chili recipe, except I doubled up the seasonings because I didn't have a chili seasoning pack. I think it actually tasted better! I made it in my electric pressure cooker! It was so much faster and it tasted better than it usually does. I'm in love with my pressure cooker and would like another one. Anyone have one they want to give me?

Anyway, we had fun exploring the Canon Pixma printer and printing out photos and making cute little frames! But the food was really the star of the show! I'm going to link to all of the recipes because aside from small adjustments, none of them were my own!

This was a big hit! It was my first tim…
