Something Saturdays (5/28/16)

BUSY week! Last Saturday I helped with the setup of a beautiful wedding at Hale Farm and had lots of fun talking about logistics with my boss, Val. She also officially announced me on the Perfectly Planned's facebook page. Monday, Michael and I took his dad and stepmom and aunt and uncle to Savor (the restaurant that my cousin owns)--everyone liked it, it was all delicious! Tuesday I had a meeting with Val and a bride whose wedding we're doing on June 4. It was fun and I'm so excited for the wedding! Wednesday we went to Michael's sister's baccalaureate (it's like a Catholic pre-graduation mass ceremony thing). Thursday was her graduation! Friday me and Val did another wedding, this one at Brookside Farms-in a barn. It was beautiful but A LOT OF WORK. Val's sister and sister-in-law came to help and we still didn't sit down for more than 5 minutes during that entire 12 hours (noon to midnight). I have blisters on the heels of my feet. They also had Chipotle for the food but Chipotle doesn't cater and the barn doesn't have staff so we had to do ALL OF IT. So...yeah. I'm exhausted lol. And Val has updated her contract to say that clients need to have caterers or get charged a ridiculous fee--which is fair. Seriously. But it's always fun and the bride and her parents seemed very happy so that's all that matters :)

Today is Shannan's (Michael's sister) graduation party and tomorrow is my cousin's! Then Memorial Day we have a pool party at my grandma's-the first of the summer! What are you doing for the long weekend?

Movies/TV Talk (assume there'll be spoilers)
Law & Order: SVU-Oh man. I mean...they were strongly hinting that something like this would happen to Dodds but still....that was heartbreaking. The scene with Olivia and Tucker (and Noah) was sweet though.

Orphan Black-I'm so relieved Felix found/saved Sarah! But ohhh I'm so worried about Donnie :(

Brown Butter Toffee Blondies

It's graduation season! People are getting their caps and gowns and getting ready to bit high school adieu. I have 4 family members graduating this year-3 of my cousins and my precious little sister-in-law. Tomorrow is Shannan's graduation and I couldn't be more excited for her! It also makes me realize how ridiculously far removed from that I am. Like...I think that I'm not that much older than an 18 year old buuut I AM. I can barely even remember my graduation-I remember being mad because my hair wouldn't curl the way I wanted it to (typical) and I remember feeling sort of...underwhelmed during the whole thing. Everyone around me was crying and I was just sitting there willing myself to feel...something. But, that's fairly typical for me when it comes to big events-I sort of have a hard time wrapping my head around the situation. Also high school wasn't exactly the most fun time for me, so I wasn't too sad to be ending it. It's funny to look back and think how I had absolutely no idea where my life was headed. Especially considering I have an adorable photo at graduation with my mother-in-law, long before I had any inkling that is what she would eventually be for me :D
Anyway. With graduations, come graduation parties. Which are such a fun celebration of the graduate-I'm so excited for Shannan's and my cousins' and I know that, if asked, I would 1000% make these blondies to bring to a grad party. Because they're totally impressive and delicious and if you've graduated high school you deserve something epic to mark the occasion. And...I mean...on the practical side--bars/blondies are awesome for parties because you just grab one and go. Not messy and super addictive. Everyone will rave about them!
Technically I already gave some of these to Shannan after her last choir concery buuut I mean...I'd make them again for her party! Or just for me to horde and eat by myself while I watch Orphan Black. Because they're gooey and chewy and brown-sugary brown-buttery delish. And the toffee adds a bit of delightful crunch. And chocolate gives us life. And salted caramel on top is probably just a necessity, yeah? Yeah I think so too.
