Tonight was my turn to host so I decided I'd have a theme (Because you can't have a party without a theme, right?). I decided to do "Bridesmaid Bunco" because you NEVER get to rewear that bridesmaid dress. So luckily I finished my 30 remix so I could wear this dress (it's from the wedding of my best friend, Plaid).

The dress didn't quite fit right (okay, it didn't fit at all!). That bummed me out. I had to wear a cardigan over it because I couldn't zip it up. No one else had to wear a cardigan!!! I tried to get Camouflage to help squeeze me in it but he said it wasn't going to happen.
I've decided that you never know how skinny you were until you aren't that skinny anymore. Thank you, Princess Sparkles. Thank you, Pigtails. You've changed me in many ways. But I still love you.
I made baked brie, teriyaki meatballs and a corn and bean salsa (similar to Cowboy Caviar). Here's the recipe (it's super easy, and is always a hit at parties!).
CORN AND BEAN SALSA
1 can of corn (drained) 1/4 cup rice vinegar (can use white too)
1 can of black beans (drained) 1/4 cup sugar
1 can of diced tomatoes (drained) 1/2 lime
1/2 cup green onion (chopped) 1 tsp smoked paprika
1/2 cup cilantro (chopped) 1 tsp chili powder
2 cloves of garlic (minced) 1 tsp cumin
salt and pepper to taste
Drain and rinse corn, black beans and tomatoes. Toss together in a medium size bowl. Add green onion, cilantro and garlic. Mix in vinegar and sugar. Squeeze in half a lime. Then season with paprika, chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper. Let sit for at least an hour in the fridge. Serve with tortilla chips.
