Galentine’s Day 2015

This weekend, I hosted my second annual Galentine’s Day party. It was a blast – a bunch of girlfriends came over to the house, brought yummy dishes and drinks, and we spent the evening laughing and talking around my dining room table.

These brownies were absolutely amazing and deadly. You can’t see it, but there’s a layer of chocolate chip cookie and then an Oreo beneath the brownie. Seriously.

To make myself feel a little less guilty for eating those brownies, I alternated between them and the clean eating peanut butter truffles that Alice made (that’s how nutrition works, right?). You can find the recipe at Be Whole, Be You.

Along with truffles (which I may or may not be eating at this very moment), Alice also made some dipped pretzels. Don’t they look professional? My contribution was a lemon raspberry tart, using a recipe from Lui in Cucina.

Mom, if you’re reading this, I swear we didn’t only eat desserts! We were just too busy devouring the deviled eggs, guacamole, buffalo chicken dip, brussels sprouts, and pasta to take any photos.

One of the best parts of the evening was reliving our childhood and playing games like MASH – remember when we used to truly believe this would determine our future? Of course, that’s only if we liked the outcome 🙂

I’d have to say the true highlight of Galentine’s was receiving this super thoughtful gift from my friend, Brittany. She bought mugs and hand crocheted these adorable mug cozys for everyone! They were perfect for the hot chocolate bar she set up.

We had so much fun and I already can’t wait for next year! Ladies, if you haven’t thrown a Galentine’s Day party yet, you need to get on it. This has easily become one of my favorite traditions in the last few years, and I highly recommend it. What could be better than hanging out with your best friends and eating delicious food? Nothing, that’s what.

  2. Hey I know this is off topic but I was wondering if you knew of
    any widgets I could add to my blog that automatically tweet my newest twitter updates.
    I’ve been looking for a plug-in like this for quite some time and was hoping maybe you would have
    some experience with something like this. Please let me know if
    you run into anything. I truly enjoy reading
    your blog and I look forward to your new updates.
