Summer Wedding Showers & Chocolate Cookies

A friend of mine is getting married next month and I attended a wedding shower for her on Tuesday night. It was really great to meet some of her oldest friends and it was really neat for me to be included in that group of friends :)

Her friends put on a "Something Blue" wedding shower for her and it was great! Her friends did a great job and everyone had a good time. There were games and prizes, good conversation and of course great things to eat, blue cupcakes and even blue punch!

The weather was perfect for this outdoor party and the garden setting was gorgeous. I sure wish that my yard looked that nice!

I found a great serving dish at Pier One, for part of her gift, and baked some delicious cookies to take to the party. The recipe is from Martha Stewart Everyday Food (click on the title for a link to the recipe). My daughter helped me bake the cookies and we had a great time! We used chocolate chips instead of chunks and used a cookie scoop to make them just the perfect size for a decadent treat!

Here is a snapshot of our picture perfect treats.

Thanks for a great evening!

At long last ......

At long last the much anticipated purse for my friend is DONE!!!!

I am so happy with the way it turned out!!!

It is bigger than I anticipated but now she will have lots of room to carry all of her most important things with her.

I am delivering it in September when we got out to visit her in Victoria, BC.

I am really looking forward to seeing her :)

Here is a sneak peek at it's total fabulous-ness!!
