For those of you who don’t know Linda is one of my longest friend and we have known each other since Kindergarten. And because our houses were pretty much a block apart we were inseparable and joined at the hip getting into shenanigans left and right. I love her so much and was beyond excited for the two parties!

My mom convinced me to not wear a dress because it’s Lindas party (Linda is a sweatpant-wearing, ponytail-fixin, no fuss type of girl). We arrived and were a little underdressed, the place settings and dishes were so pretty and fancy! I knew we were in for a good time.

The bridal shower kicked off with a round of introductions that had me tearing up. Her mom and my mom started talking about our intertwined childhood and I started remembering just all the great memories.

We went on many a camping trip….

We went to 2 proms and 2 snowballs together and were the life of the party!

We graduated from high school and went our separate ways, and finally were reunited this year in our tiny Minneapolis apartment.

Food-Time: They were so sweet and had tons of gluten-free options. There was a great spinach salad with fruit and goat cheese (I think), mediterranean inspired meatballs (with QUINOA- I was in heaven), meat and cheese tray, fruit kabobs, bbq weenies (linda’s fav). I didn’t  get any pictures because I ate it all too quickly. The desert was homemade ice cream and stole the show! Peanut butter, raspberry and chocolate fro-yo, and ye ole vanilla.
