so..if you follow along on Facebook, you know I made cupcakes for a bar-b-q this past Saturday. (if you don't follow on FB..whatcha waiting for??) 

The get together was a bit of a special shin-dig.  
My mom & her friend wanted to share her friend's cabin with all of their friends.  
They didn't call it an 'engagement party'...but they should have :)  
Yep..that's right - I get to help plan my mom's wedding!!!

Anyhoo...the cabin is just that.  A log cabin!  In the middle of the woods!  With animals you'd expect to find in the woods!  
Turkeys and Hogs and Bears - Oh My!

Here are some of the pictures I took - enjoy!

Everything was set up mom created these simple centerpieces 
(using pinecones, leaves and those spiky things - can't remember what they are called).

Cans with craft paper & twine make cute utensil holders

good eats!
bbq chicken, homemade mac & cheese (to die for) and garlic bread

the cupcakes :)
(displayed on upside down drip pans)

We rode 4 wheelers around the property (lots and lots and lots of acres)...

and it's not a party until there's target practice*
*for the record, I was hesitant to post this picture.  
I hope it doesn't offend anyone.  
There were no kids at the party.  
It was a controlled area (with a trained person supervising).  

I hope you all had a great weekend too!
I'll share my BIG news tomorrow!!

The little spiky things are sweet gum balls, from a sweet gum tree. I personally hate sweet gum trees because of those dang little things! They make it very hard to walk in places of our yard in bare feet! the party looked great! I did see the cupcakes on Facebook, and have already been trying to figure out when I can use that idea, :)
