Girls' Night Wednesday!

This November 5, I am thankful that I can now say that I have a "green thumb."
I used to kill plants and now they look pretty good!

*Don't forget to enter my first GIVEAWAY
It ends Monday night--pretty purse & fun books!*

Last Wednesday I was the host of our monthly girls' night!

I was probably way too excited.
{Yes, warning: I'm a dork.}

When I was little, I would help my grandma set our table for Thanksgiving &
dream of the day when I had my own dinner parties to throw.

 The one room of the house we've really put time, money & comepletely changed, is our dining room.

The painting we bought in Paris near the Eiffel Tower

I'm in love with it!

Newest purchases from Hobby Lobby!!

Some of my closest friends over for a tasty meal, some good wine & even better conversation.

What we really talk about? I can never post & tell! ;)

Matty made a delicious spinach artichoke dip, which we enjoyed with sweet potato chips.

Alison made a scrumptious salad, with homemade cherry-somethin dressing {Recipe puhlease!!}

I made the main dish:
Bacon Wrapped Gorgonzola Stuffed Chicken Breasts
 {recipe to follow}

Kristin made a magical Maple-Pecan Cake with freshly whipped cream.

Al is so cute!

Yes, you can literally just, whip, the cream. 

I am sad my turn is over, but so happy to have hosted.

Our traditional shot...
Matty, I need your copy, as you are still fiddling with your camera & not in my photo!!

I ended the evening with some espresso.

Next month, it's onto Alison's <new!> house and I get to bring a dessert.
