dinner for friends

several weeks ago
we were blessed to have a quickie visit 
from two awesome ladies!
that became real life friends.
i love that girl
& feel like each time we're able to chat
which is rare & usually only for a few minutes
it's like no time has even passed.

my girls love her too.
she swings through atlanta every once in a while
& fortunately
we usually are able to hook up.

amelia & i met at ashley's home a couple years ago.
she is super cute & super funny.
she has the best laugh.
i love spending time with her!

we whipped up a quick & simple dinner
& spent the rest of the evening
chatting and laughing and talking about clothes & shoes
& jewelry and decorating
and boys and exercise and other awesome things.


my girls think i'm pretty cool
since i have such cool , fun, hysterical & YOUNG
friends like ashley & amelia.

i told them while i'd give anything to have them as real life neighbors,
i'll be more than happy to visit with them when ever i can get it!

crunchy italian bread
caesar salad & my own personal giada made home made croutons.

i can't remember if we served desert
& if we did, what it was.
but i do remember a special evening
with wonderful friends
and all my family together
(even trevor dropped by to meet the legendary ashley)
sitting around a my kitchen table 
that was painted white & looked awful
& counting my blessings
that i call these two women my friends.

















 I thank my God every time I remember you.

Sounds like a fun night with friends and the food looked delicious!

I'm loving that chalkboard idea behind the stovetop, I need to cover up my ugly dark granite there so that might just work ;)

I just linked over for a free copy of the book of mormon...thank you.
also....you should try spreading Rondele {herb and garlic} cheese on the prosciutto...then wrap one slice around the asparagus stalk....broil it for 8 minutes.
Trust me.....
