Today is my bridal shower and I am so excited! This will be the first time that many of mine and Nolan’s family members will meet each other.
So as I mentioned yesterday, I was stuck inside for most of the day with the construction guy. While I was held hostage I decided to prep some dinner for last night.
We have a ton of pasta so I decided to go with our crock pot meat sauce.
I microwaved some frozen veggies and dinner was served! I’m tellin’ you. These frozen veggies are the BEST! They were on sale 2/$5 this week so I stocked up! They are 32 oz bags and they are a mix of lima beans, green beans, corn and carrots. I put them on salads, in omelets, soups, and sides. So versatile, and cheap!
For dessert, strawberry shortcake!
I found an Angel food cake on the bakery clearance rack for $1. I already had strawberries, and fat free cool whip was only $1.25.
It was a great late night snack that didn’t sit too heavy in my stomach. I savored my dessert while watching the opening ceremony of the Olympics with my mom.
I have to be honest- I didn’t love it. I thought it was a bit strange and I just didn’t get it. I certainly enjoyed watching the athletes proceed in waving their flags with pride, but I could have don’t without the England history lesson. It is amazing that so many countries can set aside their differences and come together in a respectful competitive spirit.
I did love the way they lit the final torch.
It was a combination of like 200 torches coming together.
**FUN FACT: My mom actually filled me in on this gossip and Nolan had heard it on the radio- they brought in 150 thousand condoms for the Olympics! Apparently it’s one big love fest. After seeing how gorgeous some of these athletes are I can totally understand why. 😉 **
During the ceremony, mom and I got into wedding mode. She came over so we could do our wedding invitations, and go over a few other details. I just can’t believe how quickly and easily things have been coming together. We have many exciting things coming up that I will be sure to keep everyone posted on!
What did you think of the Olympic opening ceremonies?
