Bon Voyage

Oh My Gosh...I have not posted in FOREVER!!  I am horrible!  I think it is a combination of summer time and having 3 needy boys:)  and planning lots of parties and helping friends with their parties...which is what I love to do!!  So...forgive me:)

So my best friend is moving...to Arizona.  I am so sad to see her go!  It will be weird to not have her around all the time!  The picture above is of my friend Jenna from Crafting till Midnight, me and Sharla...the one who is moving:(  The three of us have been good friends for YEARS!!  Jenna and I got together and did a Bon Voyage party for Sharla and here are some pics!  We will miss you Sharla!!

Jenna was sweet enough to have the shin-dig at her home...so beautiful!  Anyway...we went with a pink, orange and green Bon Voyage theme...

We had all sorts of yummy food...like Peanut Butter Popcorn cones, mini chocolate trifles, Spinach Dip, Fruit, Cheesecake and cupcakes...

I had lots of requests for the Peanut Butter Popcorn recipe...so here you go!  I'm not going to lie though...it is ADDICTING!  So don't say I didn't warn you:)

Peanut Butter Popcorn

5 quarts popped corn (about 3 bags of popcorn)
1 1/2 c. almonds
1 c. sugar
1/2 c. honey
1/2 c. light Karo syrup
1 c. Peanut Butter
1 tsp. vanilla

Pop the corn and put in a big bowl...make sure to pick out all the unpopped kernels.

Put the sugar, honey, and Karo syrup in a saucepan...keep stirring until it comes to a boil.  Let it boil for one minute.  Take it off the heat and add the peanut butter, then the vanilla (if you put the vanilla in earlier it will evaporate).

Pour the hot mixture over the popcorn and add the almonds.  Spread it around and break it into pieces if you want.

***I think it would be soooo good to add some Reese's Pieces to the popcorn also!!


  1. The party was so cute and fun! Thanks so much girls for hosting it! I will miss you guys soooo much!

  2. I just saw your cute lil' button on a friends blog, hopped over and then saw the first photo and I'm thinking: That girl looks JUST like the girl we rented the house from in Saginaw Ward! NO WAY - IT TOTALLY IS!!

    Then I looked at your profile pic, and I *think* you were the one that did an Enrichment nite were we got to peek through your house....am I right?

    Anyhow, I just had to leave a comment - I'm off to check out the rest of your blog....what a small world...tell Jenna I said hi!
