Photos from last night's Girl's Night Out

The gals guessed how many candies in the Jar. Congrats to Barbara for getting the closest with 899. There really are 1201, can you believe it?
Amy made this wonderful pot pourri and embossed these cute little paper bags. The gals bagged their own and sprayed it with the essential oil of their choice. Amy shared how she made the pot pourri. Just slice apples and/or oranges, sprinkle with cinnamon, spread on a cookie sheet and bake in the oven at 250 degrees until dried out.Smells so good even without the oils. I bet pears would work well also.

This is a really refreshing summertime beverage and so easy. Mix a bottle of sour apple martini mix, a bottle of sparkling apple juice and a half bottle of sparkling lemon soda. Didn't do it here, but you can add a green apple slice.

This is a quick, yummy salad of 6 cups watermelon, 3 cups sliced strawberries, 8 leaves of basil, sliced thin and at the last minute toss in a mixture of 1/2 c. lemon juice and 1/2 c. extra virgin olive oil.
Another quick snack are these roll ups. Mix 8oz of whipped cream cheese, 8 oz feta cheese, 4 0z walnuts, and 6 oz dried cranberries. Spread on flour tortilla and rollup. Refrigerate, then slice.
