Happy New Year, Everyone! I am still recovering from a very active wedding weekend as Mother of the Groom! Celebrations are always a great way to begin a New Year!
I thought I would close out this year by taking you to our Texas BBQ Wedding Rehearsal. It was a very intimate evening in a private home. My husband’s father had hosted a rehearsal dinner for my husband’s best friend (Mr. G) years ago, so Mr. G wanted to reciprocate and invited us all out to his Lazy G Ranch for a down home country cookout. It was an amazing evening from grilled chicken smoked in his secret sauce to a Smores bar around a fire pit.
Magazine-worthy decorations and spicy cooking were perfect for a cold, Texas night and we really had a wonderful time. The menu also included jalapeno poppers and Texas Pecan coffee. For the poppers, just take hold of your jalapenos with rubber gloves, cut in half, take out the seeds in the middle. Fill with cream cheese, and wrap with bacon strips. Cook at 425 degrees until bacon is crisp…yum!
I told you HERE I was going to be wearing Soft Surroundings all weekend. This sweater was the western chic style I was seeking and I really loved it with my Coldwater Creek leggings and boots. I hope you enjoy the pictures ; and I hope your celebrations this holiday season have been joyous. I will return with some of the wedding soon!!
