My Happy List and a Special Strawberry Social

Tuesday, June 26, 2012


I had such a wonderful time over the weekend with my sorority sisters.  So my happy list is all about my weekend!


Our t-shirt from the reunion....I think it is so much fun!  It makes me happy!

My Happy List

Spending time at the house and in Tuscaloosa with my sorority sisters made me so happy!!!

So in honor of my sisters, I want to return the favor and give them a virtual Strawberry Social that would make Maude Jones Horner proud!!!



I serve berries with cream and brown sugar.  I just don't have them out yet.  I also place a balsamic glaze in the little bunny creamer.

Fresh berries make me happy!




I truly feel blessed to know so many outstanding women.


With so many strawberries on hand I baked a strawberry cake.  I will post the recipe tomorrow!  Strawberry cakes make Mr. Art @ Home extremely happy!!!

Please join Mamarazzi @ Dandelion Wishes and share your happy!

Until next time...

  1. Yummy Ricki. Love the strawberry basket. Strawberry cake. Can't wait.

  2. That reunion t-shirt is so cute!

    I would love to join you for your strawberry social. That strawberry basket is adorable and I love the strawberry flatware. Now about that cake...Mmmmmm.

  3. You've got it all....strawberries, white violets, bunnies and turquoise....the perfect ZTA table! Love the t-shirt too! ZL, from a 70's vintage Zeta!

  4. That shirt is great - so glad you had fun! And I will be back for the strawberry cake recipe! I have been craving strawberry cake for weeks now and yours looks great!

  5. So jealous. I am still trying to find a place where I can go pick strawberries. Your setting is so beautiful.

  6. That T-shirt is so much fun! I'm glad you had such a great time at your reunion!

  7. I think I can relate to exactly how you are feeling after your weekend (if you have time, read my post today)! Nothing quite like spending time with old friends! The cake glows...can't wait to see the recipe.

  8. Man, I'd love to have a piece of that cake. It's my favorite!!

  9. You actually make sororities look FUN, and that is fantastic. :D

    That you served balsamic with the strawberries proves how amazing of a foodie you are, as in my opinion that's one of the best flavor combinations in the world.

    And also...strawberry cake! Is it gluten-free? If not, I'm going to steal your recipe and tinker with it until I can make it gluten-free....I love love love strawberries, and have never make strawberry cake before. Yay! :D

  10. I'm so glad you had a good time at the reunion! I love that T shirt! Can't wait for the cake recipe! :)
