Banquets, Showers,and Fathers Day Oh My!

This weekend was busy, but full of fun.

Every year the hubby goes to Columbia, SC to be on the Production Staff for Palmetto Boys State. This is something we plan our vacations around and we even planned our wedding around it last year. It's very special to him and I never quite understand how a week in blazing hot Columbia, SC with teenage boys can be so special. But, on Friday I went to the Banquet provided for the staff and their spouses, counselors and students. What an experience! I now understand why my husband has such a difficult time explaining how important this week is to him. Boys from all over the state and of different backgrounds and ethnicities gather to learn more about our governmental system. They are asked to give speeches, run for offices, and really step out of their comfort zones. It was awesome on Friday night to see how much the week had affected each boy. What a great way to invest in our future!!

My brother Stewart is engaged to this gorgeous girl.

(Me, Ashley, Mom)
On Saturday she had her first Bridal Shower in North Carolina. Mom, Ashley, and I had so much fun driving up for her shower. She got lots of fun gifts. I am really excited about their wedding in September! She will be a beautiful bride!!

Sunday was Father's Day. The Hubster and I went to church at my dad's church, then we made him a delicious lunch! We had roast beef, yorkshire pudding (a delicious Bristish Tradition that my grandma always makes when we have roast beef), Corn Pie, and this Bread Pudding Recipe with this sauce. The sauce was delicious. I liked the Bread Pudding but next time I think I would cut back on the nutmeg. Just a little too much. I also let the pudding sit over night and soak up all the yummyness. Absolutely Delish!

Then what did we do Sunday night...oh,yea, we ate again! We celebrated Father's Day with the hubby's grandaddy with steaks and potatoes.

It was a fun weekend...but I must admit I'm exhausted!!! Working on some projects and preparing for a baby shower. I'm looking forward to sharing those things with you coming up soon! Have a Marvelous Monday!
