Entertaining | Backyard BBQ (Y'all)

We had the pleasure of hosting Greg's meeting attendees this week for a (catered, thank goodness) BBQ in our back yard. It was so nice to spend more time with a few of the folks I had already begun to get to know and it was a lot of fun to meet the up-and-comers from other places in the region. Also, I like parties. I especially liked this one because I had a ton of help (Thanks, Emma!) and I delegated almost all of the food responsibility to the professionals at Mac's Speed Shop (who did such an amazing job!). 

I did get to have some fun making the cutlery bags, menu item signs, vases, and root beer floats. (All Pinspired, of course!)

Some people had a hard time choosing between the desserts. 
But who could blame them between the RB floats, banana pudding, and incredible chocolate chip cookies? (I suspect there may have been half a stick of butter in each cookie. Of course I had to do a lot of sampling to come up with educated guess.)

Cheers (again) to the close of Summer! Cheers to opening our home and lives to new friends! Cheers to the adventure (and may the stopping never start)!
