these pictures are from saturday night’s pool-side black and white-themed party. other than my pink nose, i’m always ready for a black and white party! i bet they had great food there. i can imagine lounging pool-side with a shrimp cocktail and yummy quesadillas and chile relleno with some fancy vanilla creme brulee dessert!
