Thursday marked the one-year anniversary of me joining the blogging world. It's been a bit crazy. There was that time I went several months without blogging because my laptop gave up on me. There were a few fails along the way but even more successes. I've made some amazing friends from some really cool places.
My friend M, Chris's sister K, and my cousin S
In honor of this momentous occassion, I hosted an impromptu tea party at my apartment (I had to make a really big dessert for the Daring Bakers that I knew the hubby and I wouldn't be able to eat on our own). I invited some friends over and made some finger foods. I dipped some strawberries in chocolate. I baked until midnight last night even though the tornado sirens were going off (I was trapped at the grocery store for almost an hour in a concrete hallway with about 15 other people just waiting for an all clear so I could race home to bake).
The only one I could get to smile for the camera
Luckily the grocery store went to had the one thing that I went to that specific store for, clotted cream, so it was worth getting locked in (plus I made a new friend who I got to tell all about the joys of Tulsa living...no, really, it was a good conversation). I set out several different flavors of tea with tea pots full of hot water so everyone could choose what they like. All in all, I think everyone had a good time. I think even the Queen of England herself would have been happy with how everything turned out.
Don't let the pouty face fool you, she had fun
There really isn't a recipe for me to share with you today. I made egg salad for the very first time with some instructions from my mom. The biggest recipe can't be shared until next week when it's time to post for the DBs again. Anyway, I really just wanted to thank you all for sticking with me for the past year. Hopefully, you'll still be here with me this time next year. I've got some really fun stuff planned for the next few months so stick around.
