I am throwing a Twilight Eclipse party tomorrow night for my girlfriends and I have kinda gone all out with the decor. I wanted to make it special so I personally made a lot of it. Here is a little sneak peek and I will post the rest of the photos after the party. If any of my friends do read my blog I don't want them to not be surprised when they come over tomorrow.

We cooked a delicious meal Friday night. I made some Toasted Strawberry Bruschetta ( didn't take a pic) which was toasted strawberries tossed in balsamic vinegar placed on toasted baguettes with goat cheese and baby arugula. They were pretty delicious and a very refreshing appetizer for summer. For the main course we had steaks broiled stove top in butter with seasoning, broiled asparagus and amazing twice baked potatoes. Take a look at the feast below.

I am off to Hawaii for the week with my family. I plan on staying next to a pool with a tropical cocktail in hand attempting to work on my tan. I also plan on consuming at least one shaved ice a day. I hope to post pictures throughout the week.

Stephen and I were watching Build A Better Burger Challenge on the Food Network and decided we could build a better one. We mixed up ground beef, Worcestershire sauce, soy sauce, parmesan oil, chalula, garlic bread crumbs, 3 eggs, salt and pepper to make the patties. For the toppings we carmelized onions in olive oil, soy sauce and brown sugar, cooked some bacon, added lettuce and made a Chalula aoli. As a side dish we wanted to try our hand at making potato salad. We boiled potatoes, chopped hard boiled eggs, bacon and green onions and added mayo. Over all this meal was absolutely delicious! The pictures do not do it justice and were poorly taken on my iphone.

As you may have noticed from posts a while back I am obsessed with flower arrangements. I like to think it is a talent of mine and whenever someone in my family gets a bouquet they usually ask me to do the honor of arranging it in a vase. I think weddings are so pretty and so do the people at Style Me Pretty. They did a post about a wedding in Berkeley, CA and it was overflowing with gorgeous flowers. The couple wanted to incorporate pears in all of their stationary so the florist even included them in the arrangements. When I grow up and get married I would love it to look sorta like this.

This past Saturday I attended the most beautiful wedding. It was for our family friend Ashley and she looked gorgeous. She had her reception at California Adventure Hotel. I am wearing a DVF dress and Cynthia Vincent platform wedges.
