(downtown for the bachelorette party)

(my mom and i put together this tray)


I know it's been a while since I last posted, but I have been busy with work, school, and planning a surprise wedding shower for one of my good friends from college. The shower was a success. I had a ton of help from my mom and Steve with getting things ready for the shower. Steve even made his family recipe for cucumber sandwiches!

Cucumber Sandwiches
by Steve

1 large cucumber
1 loaf of pumpernickel bread (cocktail size)
1 packet of dry Italian dressing mix
1 tub of whipped cream cheese
1 spice shaker of dill weed

1. Wash cucumber and dry well. Slice into thin slices about 1/4 inch thick.
2. In a small bowl, combine dressing mix and cream cheese. Mix well.
3. Spread cream cheese over the slices of bread and top with a slice of cucumber. Sprinkle with dill on top.

In other news ---

I accepted a new job offer. I'll now be working at my hospital's Cancer Institute in their outpatient infusion center. The downside is that it is a full time position so it will definitely be a struggle to finish this semester. I'm not sure how long it will take me to finish my master's degree now :/


  1. I loveee cuke sandwiches!

    The new job sounds great! Best of luck keeping your degree on track!

  2. @Sarah- thanks so much! Cuke sandwiches are sooo good & easy! They're healthy too!
