Wedding Wednesday- Bridesmaid dresses

I have four amazing women that I can’t wait to have be by my side. These ladies have been there with me through it all and I can’t imagine not sharing this moment with them. They each bring something incredibly unique to the table and with that they all have unique body types. 
 
I searched high and low and finally found a dress I think is flattering on everyone. Let’s all be real, maxi dresses make you look pulled together when really they are just yoga pants with no crotch.

Pecan bacon Recipe

I have craved something savory lately and after multiple snacks I just couldn’t get the satisfaction I wanted. Until, I came across this Pinterest recipe that made my life a million times better. It has bacon, nuts, pepper and sugar. Basically, all the ingredients that make any food taste like heaven. Try out this recipe and let me know what you think! What’s your favorite savory snack?
Ingredients2 tablespoons coarsely chopped pecans

  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons freshly ground pepper
  • 12 thick-cut bacon slices 

Preparation

  1. 1. Preheat oven to 400°. Process pecans in a food processor 20 seconds or until finely chopped. Stir together pecans, brown sugar, and pepper.
  1. 2. Place half of bacon in a single layer on a lightly greased wire rack in an aluminum foil-lined baking sheet. Repeat procedure with remaining bacon, placing on another lightly greased wire rack in a second foil-lined baking sheet. Press pecan mixture on top of bacon slices, coating well.

Sipping Saturday-the Princeton Party

My brother in law is the world’s best bartender and every time I go over to my sister’s house I know that I will have the best cocktails, drunk time with my sister and a killer hangover the next day. This is his latest creation.

Fill a glass of champagne and add a splash of elderflower liquor. It’s delicious!
