Shower Me with Quiche

You guys remember my friend Colleen?  The one who is responsible for introducing the most amazing ham and cheese sliders I have ever, ever had in my life?  Yeah.  That one.  She's getting married and I just happen to be so lucky to be part of her big day.  The weekend before last, we showered Colleen in gifts (and booze) and I showered myself in quiche.


Before I swan dived into said quiche, I was greeted by an adorable name tag.  THANK GOD for name tags.  I was wondering how I would remember who I was after drinking mimosas all day... 

We were also greeted by yummy brownies that we were encourage to take on our way home...

THE QUICHE.  We're getting closer...

Here are adorable little cupcakes.  I don't bake, so I can totally get behind a homemade brunch and store bought (not just any store...pick a good one) dessert.  Especially when it tastes like heaven.

Now to the quiche.  I took one bite and knew I was in totes trubs.  Heavy cream?  Check.  Bacon?  Check.  Flaky, buttery crust?  Check, check check.  Damn it damn it damn it.

It was seriously the best quiche I've ever had in my life.  SO GOOD.  And you know I demanded the recipe!! (scroll to the bottom peeps)

Awww....look at Colleen in the hot seat.  I LOVE IT.

I love this photo...happy, joyful faces, all around.

This wrapping put me to shame.  I refuse to wrap things. Mainly because it's not green I'm lazy.

Here's Colleen's future sister-in-law, Joanne, taking down all of the gifts...

I seriously had to take this picture a 4 times.  Lauren likes to talk/blink/make fun of me while I'm trying to take pictures of her.   Regardless, she's a rehearsal bouquet making PRO.

As promised, here's the quiche recipe.
