I spent the afternoon with 3 of my dearest friends celebrating the soon to be arrival of a baby girl.
There is something to be said about old friends friends who have stood the test of time because we are not old. =) The five of us whispered about first loves during sleepovers, spent the weekend at the Jersey shore after prom and stayed in touch via letters (which I still have in a hat box at my parents house) during that 1st year apart in college.
We have stood by each other as we started careers, found a soul mate (4 down, 1 to go) and now have children. The five of us couldn't be more different. But I think it is our acceptance of those differences that have kept us friends for 20+ years.
So on to the food. I, of course, volunteered to make the cookie favors and cake. I couldn't decide on one design. They were so much fun to make. The cookies are sugar cookies with royal icing. I promise to share the cake pictures and recipe tomorrow. It is such an easy recipe that kinda well, yes definitely does, involve a box cake mix (gasp). I would share today but the pictures are stuck in my camera and it is sleepytime.
