There’s a Bun In The Oven, and it’s just about done! 🙂

As we countdown the days til we meet “baby G” (I’m 38 weeks today–due Christmas day), I thought it would be fun to reminisce about the joyful memories that lead up to his arrival!

One of our most memorable experiences leading up to baby G was telling our friends we are expecting! After being married for 11 years, you can imagine they were beyond surprised! We called them together for what they thought was a “cooking class with friends”, hosted by the fabulous Dawn Bause of Cooking with Dawn Tours.

We hosted it at our home, and told our friends if they missed it, they would die (LOL–just kidding…but we seriously told them not to cancel…and they still didn’t have a clue of what the night was truly for….)

For the interactive dinner and cooking class we prepared as a team:

First Course: Asparagus Risotto

Second Course: Classic Lemon Chicken Scalloppini

Warm Asparagus Salad with Pancetta, Leeks and Pine Nuts

Dessert: Fresh Strawberry Parfait with Fresh Ricotta Cheese and Homemade Dark Chocolate Shavings

A fun time was had by all…but I think we all agree…dessert was the most memorable part of the night!!!

Here’s how we told our friends we were expecting…. (Play the video clip below) Watch Phil’s face! 

We seriously have the best friends ever. I watch this and cry as I see their excitement for us! It was like someone won the super bowl!

The cake was in the shape of the bun, and on the tray it read “There’s a (BUN) in the oven!”
