Wedding Shower season continues :)

This past weekend, Michael and I threw a shower for our good friends A&J! We threw them a STOCK THE BAR shower. It was great! They mean so much to us and we wanted to do something for them. The shower was very casual. We grilled out and FINALLY made use of my backyard. We borrowed backyard furniture from my cousins and had enough seating for everyone! It was great! Thank you Jay, Ashley, and John!!!

They got all kinds of great stuff....

And the guys had a great time playing CORNHOLE with the boards my dad made for Michael for Christmas (my mom made the bean bags!) :)

We had tons of food and I didn't space plan for it as well as I should have....
The menu included:
hot dogs and hamburgers
chips and salsa
ruffles and french onion dip
fruit salad
strawberry spinach salad (from the WS shower--see recipe in a post below)
potato salad
cole slaw
beans (but we accidentally left them in the crock pot in the kitchen and totally forgot about them)

Drink menu:
Sangria (my specialty--recipe is from an old cooking light magazine and I love making it)
Crystal light (strawberry, orange, banana)
Sweet Tea
variety of sodas
variety of liquor

And of course, MAGEPIES for dessert! YUMM-O!

**Needless to say, we ran out of room on the buffet table and we had to move the drinks to the ground....
