My little brother gets hitched in less than 3 weeks.  I am so excited that he’s marrying Kiersten (Peaches) and I can’t wait to have another sister-in-law.  This past weekend I ventured to Columbia for Kiersten’s “last fling before the ring.”  We had an absolute blast and I can’t wait to keep laughing with her for years to come.

Isn’t that just the cutest sign?  Before we headed out for the evening, we threw Kiersten a lingerie shower.

We had quite the spread of nibbles!  Various cheeses from Trader Joes including the beloved blueberry goat cheese.  Jamie made a delicious fruit dip and bought super cute cupcakes from a local bakery.  I also made a favorite 3-ingredient dip that I’ve made many times before.  It’s simple – 8 ounces whipped cream cheese, 8 ounces sour cream, 8 ounces pepper jelly.  Mix until smooth and serve with carrots and corn chips.  Addicting!

And then we had a drink station.  Wine is a given.  But I also made a Coastal Skies cocktail.  We tried using Kiersten’s color scheme and this drink matched perfectly.

Coastal Skies (recipe was tripled)

  • 3 cups coconut rum
  • 2 cups blue Curacao (recipe called for 3)
  • 1 1 /2 cups amaretto
  • 2 cups pineapple juice
  • 1/2 cup lime juice (could have used more, didn’t have enough limes)

It was so fun meeting some of Kiersten’s friends and getting to know Kiersten’s sister more.  I can’t wait for the biggest reunion of them all – the wedding!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Cheers to Kiersten and Taylor!!!!!
