This past weekend we celebrated my dear friend Kelle's birthday. I lived next to her multiple years of college, and since one of those we both had singles, you might as well say we were roommates. She is genuinely one of the most kind-hearted people I know, and really teaches me a lot about being a good friend. (well, attempts to...I still am awful about calling people) I only learned Saturday, though, that she is an incredibly talented photographer, and you should see the pictures she has hanging on her walls!
The most important thing about her party? Let's show the 2 pictures I took:
Also to be recognized, is that cake you see. The idea for the party is that each one of us would bring a pot luck dish that began with the same letter as our first name. Dave brought "dessert". Kelle, thinking she was being goofy, sent out an email with a whole bunch of desserts that she enjoys, and Dave decided that he would try to combine them. Fortunately, he stopped at 3 because adding in lemon would've been weird. This was his first time EVER baking, and he was fantastically successful in making his 1) Red Velvet Cake, with 2) Reeses Cups in the layers, and 3) Chocolate for the icing. Maybe it was helpful that he hadn't baked before, because I don't know how many people would have been so ambitious!
And, for those that were curious, I brought "Kebabs" of fruit with the following dip:
Blend together the following:
8 ounces cream cheese
1/2 cup marshmallow creme
2 cups frozen whipped topping, thawed
1/4 cup unsweetened pineapple juice
Chill after combining. That's it!
