38 year old SITSta


Hello my SITStas!! As a SITS girl for over a year now & once Saucy Chef, I think it's fitting to celebrate my 38th birthday in true SITS style, as featured blogger for today!

There is nothing I love more than sharing moments of laughter & friendship over cocktails & pretty platters of hors d’oeuvres.

So, come celebrate with me & take a bite out of life. But first, grab yourself a cocktail!!!!






Ok, you good? Fantastic! Now, go ahead & take a leisurely scroll through all these wonderful Appetizers & Dips I prepared just for the celebration! Just don't forget to say hello, wherever you wish. And come back for seconds.....


Thank you for celebrating with me!
