Weekend roundup: Warrior edition

OUR_Ninja_LandscapeLike a warrior is how I feel when I successfully entertain. It takes a enormous amount of energy, effort, and focus to prepare for company. But despite the effort I enjoy it every time. This weekend was no exception as I had a a few friends over for snacks and association. Of course these were no ordinary snacks but still decidedly simple by my standards at least.

Unfortunately I got so caught up in my hosting duties that I forgot to take pictures of our spread with the exception of these yummy Chocolate Cupcakes 😦

But my good friends at Google come to my rescue again. Even though fewer friends attended than I had planned for (partly due to the nasty winter storm) we had a great time.
