Pot luck lunch with the girls! The last few years of my life have lacked gatherings and meals with friends and when my colleagues from my work decided to unanimously to gather for a lunch back in June we all agreed on doing a pot luck! It was such a nice day spending girl time for the first time in a while and despite being such a sociable and friendly person I've rarely gone out with friends! We all looked so forward to the lunch and boy was it a great day spent with some of the loveliest girls I've come to know!
Besides being our first gathering, it was also a mini belated birthday celebration and I made it a point to bake a chocolate cake with salted caramel frosting in the middle which was the birthday girl's favorite flavor! The cake was a first for me but with the help of my boyfriend it turned out amazing!!

|Monday funday featuring a pot luck lunch with the girls!|
|The gorgeous condo that my colleague lives at! It's FAAAAAR away from where I live but it looks like a holiday paradise to me!|
|I only wish to have such a gorgeous pool to access whenever I want!|
|Check out that water spraying out! Love water features like these, they're so fun!|
|The pool is huge, spanning a large portion of the grounds of the condominium! I've never stayed at apartments with such a gorgeous pool in my lifetime but wouldn't mind!|
|Laying back on one of the lawn chairs waiting for the other ladies to arrive!|
|And then this huge waterfall feature begins and the loud crashing sound startled me at first but then was just white noise!|
|My lady friends that I got to know through my work place! Love how we are so bubbly, fun, loud together!|
|Close up of our sumptuous buffet! We all ate a bit of everything and were so stuffed! We had too much food but it was no surprise!|
|The cake I made for the birthday girl! It had two layers and the salted caramel was sandwiched in the middle! I'm not a fancy baker but I definitely made a super tasty and delicious cake!|
|The four of us ladies toasting with white sparkling wine! There was a total of five of us but the fifth person didn't join us till a bit later!|
|The four of us ladies posing with our wine! I think I had three servings, it was really fruity and sweet and lovely!|
