Baseball, Babies and a Bride

Some may call me crazy for throwing a bridal shower 1 week after I move into a new home. Some may call me crazy for a multitude of other things but that is besides the point. Crazy or not, I threw a bridal shower this weekend for my baseball lovin’ friend Shannon. There were friends, family,  presents, games, babies and of course food. With all this going on I figured it was time to break out of my “I can’t take pictures” shell so I grabbed Ryan’s camera and began snapping away.

You know, when I started this blog almost two years ago with this post,  I had originally intended for Life’s Ambrosia to be a recipe blog with a little bit of life sprinkled in here and there. Somewhere along the way it became strictly a recipe blog which has worked very well for the past year or so. But right now there are so many things going on in my life that I figured it’s time to start sharing a little bit more, after all I have gotten to know quite a few of you very well over this here internets. For those of you that are here strictly for the food, don’t worry you’ll still get recipes every week but every once in a while there might also be pictures of family, friends and babies…and really who doesn’t like pictures of babies. Especially when babies look like this:

And when they do this:

When we weren’t busy ooh-ing and aw-ing over baby kisses, we played some games because what is a bridal shower without games? They were very grown up games though. Like this one where we fought over pens to see who could write to 100 first. It was good times but I won’t lie things got a little vicious. Who knew all these sweet ladies were so competitive?

Melissa won. And she was very excited as you can see. I mean who wouldn’t be with a bag of candy from the party store comin’ their way.  Ya I know, not the coolest prize hey whats a new homeowner to do?

Along with the babies and games, there were presents to be opened by the lovely bride to be. I will probably have to borrow this pasta bowl. I’m also thinking that I should tell Shannon she should try out for the Price is Right. She’s got the “And you will win this lovely pasta bowl” thing down.

It wouldn’t be a party thrown by Des if I didn’t have food. And in case you didn’t see the recipe yesterday let me tempt you one more time with these garlic chips.

And because I simply can’t resist. A couple more pictures of babies:

And so concluded my first party at the new house and my first experience taking pictures with Ryan’s camera. I have to say it was a lot of fun, I think I might have found a new hobby.
