Happy Anniversary to us!! Yesterday was our anniversary and what did we do, you ask? Well after working the entire day, I worked my butt off (not literally, I wish though - I could stand to lose a couple of pounds) to make us a nice dinner. I made us a leg of lamb, some baked/seasoned sweet potatoes, a salad, and some yummy dessert.
For the dessert I made some milk chocolate (milk chocolate = not my favorite, I dislike milk chocolate and am a much bigger fan of dark chocolate but apparently the store was out of it) covered strawberries and what I'm calling MF Smores. It's not what you're thinking though, the "MF" doesn't stand for that, it stands for "Mini Fancy" Smores. Although, they ARE that good (to have a "rapper" type name) - since they are so IN YOUR FACE with their deliciousness. (Just so you know, I'm now imagining one of the MF Smores with a mini gold chain on saying "I don't care about no stinky chickenhead. Just give me my monkey!*" or "My nizzle, why she always droppin' bombs crazy like that?*" waving a mini gun all around and throwing up gang signs.)
Bascially, all I did for the MF Smores is put 3 mini marshmallows on a skewer, dip them in chocolate, then set them on mini graham crackers to dry. Once done, they could be picked up by the skewer to eat!
Don't they look super duper delicious? I made more than what you see above, believe me. I just didn't want us to eat them all, so I put them away so we can enjoy them later. YAY for chocolate covered strawberries for breakfast today!
Also, I decided to share some more of our wedding pictures with you. Some are pictures I really like, while others show just a small portion of the things I made (with my bare hands) for the occasion. Just thought I'd share a bit of my creative side with you all.
First, let me say we were married in Michigan and it was unseasonably warm, I mean like 70 degrees, that day. So nice, in fact, that we took a lot of pictures outside. Here's one that I really like:
The below pictures show some of the stuff I made for our wedding (I made almost everything that I could). My bridal bouquet in the picture below was one of the items I made. I decided to use silk flowers for the making of all of the bouquets and boutonnieres since we lived in a different state than where we were getting married (it made things A LOT easier on me stress-wise).
I love this picture of us in front of the Beaumont Tower on campus:
I didn't make this but wanted to show what we gave away as a gift to guests. Every guest received a mini lantern as seen below:
I did make our cake toppers also - they were our initials. Funny story there though, I made them out of clay. However, accidentally bought glow-in-the-dark clay and didn't realize it until after I made them. How did I learn they were made out of glow-in-the-dark clay? Well, the day after I made them I went out into our dining room to find them glowing in the dark. LOL
The rest of the pictures are of things I made. Below are the bridal bouquets:
These were our Father's boutonnieres:
This was Binderclips' boutonniere:
This is the flower girl's basket (with the leaves she threw out during the ceremony) and the card box:
Anyways, Happy Anniversary to us! I hope you all have a great day today.
