This post is 100% guaranteed to make you gain 7 pounds instantly

You may or may not remember that my brother got married down in Arizona a month or so ago. Well, this last weekend he and his new wife finally had their "open house" in Utah so all of the friends and family up here could give the couple their blessings and shower them with love (and gifts).

My mother hired me to be the photographer for this not-so-little soiree, and I've been mired in photo editing the last day or so and still have a very long ways to go. However, I did think you'd all appreciate these photos of the refreshments. Especially since I have nothing to write about at the moment because all I'm doing is dishes and photoshop work. And who wants to read about dishes?

Enjoy! (I certainly did!)

Chocolate Heaven

Decadence


Not your grandma's fruitcake

More perfection

Perfection

Carrot cake with raspberry chocolate

MMMMMM

  25. Delicious! I'm sorry it's been awhile since I've been around- I am desperately trying to play catch up! I hope you are doing well and had a great Mothers' Day! I totally understand the whole Bob Ross thing (I'm only several posts behind :( For some reason his show is so calming- it's like HGTV for me...just takes all the stress away!
