Awesome food, awesome company - Beth's lingerie shower

This week has been awesome. One reason is that Corey is in visiting from Trinidad! Another reason is that Beth, Corey's bestie, just got engaged and we hosted a super fun bridal lingerie party organized by Corey.

Here are some pics (mostly of food) as the others I can't publish as it would spoil the surprise for Beth's new hubby. I must say, Corey knows how to throw a great party. This very tasty food was both healthy and colorful, and provided just the right festive setting.

Miss Bethany Wesson, the lovely bride-to-be!
Part of the spread: that's spinach dip past the pretzel chips 

Chicken sausages: cilantro lime, and apple with cinnamon
Veggies on a bed of arugula with hummus
Lime shrimp with water crackers and Parmesan crisps
Tiny caprese skewers
Guacamole with peach, pineapple salsa, black bean dip
Herbed goat cheese, prosciutto, aged Gouda, pepper jack bites
On a side note, another few reasons this week has been a great one:

--> I've learned and refined more skills in the kitchen at the Star of Hope Women and Family Emergency Shelter - always a bonus! It's an amazing place to volunteer.

--> I tried a new arm balance pose at yoga for the first time called Astavakrasana (Eight Angle Pose) - and nailed it on the first try on both sides! This is a really tricky one as you can see below, so it's pretty exciting.

--> I FINALLY did King Pigeon on one side at yoga - after nearly two years of trying. Now for the other side!

--> I'm really proud of Greg who has been working so very hard and is doing great things.

This week, I'm feeling especially blessed and very grateful. I'll end with a quote from President Kennedy that I hope inspires you too:

'As we express our gratitude, we must never forget that the highest appreciation is not to utter words, but to live by them.'
-- John F. Kennedy
