This was a whirlwind of a weekend but so much fun! We closed on our new home and then I headed to an amazing blogger conference. It is always such a blast to get together with such amazing friends that I have met through the blogging world. We always learn so much from each other and at the conference and I come back feeling refreshed and inspired.

Last week we had a fun little gathering and I made this delicious BLT Avocado Pasta Salad. I put a little spin on the classic BLT and added some pasta and my favorite…. avocado!

  1. Made this for mother’s day and it was a huge hit. Now making it for the other side of the family on fathers day. Love the dressing. I made extra for those who wanted to add more on their plate. Everything was gobbled up!

  2. Wow!! Made this today and it was fantastic! Added some seared chicken breast and substituted grape tomatoes for the larger ones. Made extra dressing for the side. Served it with sour dough bread. My husband loved it!!!
