easter dinner.

 We had a lovely Easter dinner, and if I do say so it was quite delicious. My brother came home from Nashville looking like Joaquin Phoenix...and Taylor & Allison joined my family, as well as Andrew's sister Danielle, and our friend Justin. It was a nice relaxing day of good food, good company and a good movie..The King's Speech (i know, i'm so late on that one...)

I haven't been blogging much lately due to Andrew's ACL surgery last week (notice the crutches in the picture). Life has been a little more complicated since he will be on crutches 4-6 weeks and can't drive for a month. I am busy playing nurse/chauffeur in the midst of working, helping Andrew with his work and house hunting! Not to mention the nice weather! Of course I'm sure everyone in the blogosphere is beginning to get outside more these days and spend less time online...

deb + wade = married!

(NOTE: When I asked Andrew if this picture was clear, he said yes!)

I had a wonderful time this weekend attending the wedding of Debbie and Wade. They had their ceremony at church and Andrew played guitar for Raina, who sang a beautiful song! Afterwards they had a traditional Norwegian Kransekake refreshment time. Since we attend a church with a predominantly Norwegian heritage, I have learned to love all Norwegian desserts, but especially this one! It's a Norwegian wedding cake made from almonds.

Their reception was held at the Stroudsmoor Inn. It was beautiful and elegant, and they had a great jazz band. I had tons of fun catching up with my friends who were in visiting from Minnesota! 

Other than that,our friends Hannah and dan came to visit friday night and I made a ton of mediterranean tapas (gluten free for hannah!). It was a glorious weekend weather wise (today I sat outside in a tank top and shorts, sorry Hill!!) and I did lots of yard work.

stuck in a rut.

Due to a lack of original content to post, stemming from a creative rut I am feeling stuck in this week, I am sharing some images from my new favorite blog with you today. I have been feeling like I want to purge my closet and strip it down to it's essentials lately, and this site has inspired me even further to do it! Gone are the days of buying things just because they're cheap..the motto of my mid twenties...quality over quantity!

It's called Closetvisit. Jeana Sohn photographs inspiring and stylish women in their homes and let's us peek into their closets, which I personally find extremely fascinating! I think you will enjoy it as much as I do..

birthday weekend!

 I'm a quarter of a century old! My birthday weekend was really nice and pretty low key. We had a small dinner party with some friends Friday night and Andrew made sushi. I made some other asian appetizers to go with it, we played some games, and it was a really fun night! Saturday was lazy...and unfortunately I woke up Sunday morning (my actual birthday) with a nasty cold that Andrew decided to share with me..
 I ate some pizzelles for breakfast* and had a relaxing morning. I read, nursed my cold, & enjoyed my pretty roses from Andrew..
*(not as good as Donna Little's!!)
We had a picnic at Lake Minsi and watched the fishermen. It didn't last long though because it turns out it's still too chilly for picnics...
 Andrew got me the sparkly TOMS I wanted!
Spent the afternoon reading and drinking lots of tea.
Had a delicious dinner with my family at my favorite restaurant, Antelao's, complete with Tiramisu for dessert! Thank you for everyone who made it special with your birthday messages, cards & gifts!! 

I love you all!

The end.
