I had a long day as catering staff at the birthday event at the Frank Lloyd Wright house, in kirkwood! It was hot outside and I came home feeling gross and tired. 
I had most of a bottle of cold white wine left from last night, so we opened it up and started a new Netflix series called 'Sense8.'
The bottle LosVascos Sauvignon Blanc 2013 
The taste- acidic, grapefruit, pear, and a nice mineral. Very easy and clean drinking. 
I'd say drink alone or would pair well with a salad, white fish or vegetables. 
Love the wine! Would buy again! 
Tv show, enjoyed, will watch more!

tortilla soup

it's been a whole month since we moved. we found a great apartment, within a block of a great walking/running park!
We have not had food in the house and we hadn't done real grocery shopping in a month.
we usually set our meals for the week and shop for those meals. it helps save money and we don't waste as much food.
i received some great cook books from my bridal showers and it was time to start putting them to use. we were getting sick of eating out, so last night i prepared our first homemade meal since we moved. Tortilla soup!

wedding invites

Ron worked so hard and so long on designing our wedding invitations! i am really proud of him and i really enjoy all the thought and humor he put into them! We hope you like them!
we had a great time at our friends, Dan and Les, ' screenprinting our invitations. yes, i did pull several screens myself, all the nice and even ones are mine. ha! we are so grateful to Dan for his time and patience, with us! we would not have gotten it done so quick without his expertise!
Thanks to my sister, Holly and her nice handwriting, all the labels got printed! My handwriting does not even pass my own standards! we apparently picked the right person, in grade school, Holly was picked by the class to write the letter to the president! phew! i'm glad for those credentials!
After talking to Ron and some tough decisions on stamps for the mailing, i went outside to my car and started feverishly sticking them (and labels, and stickers to close the envelope) on the invite. I thought the post office closed at 5, and only had 15 mins to get as much as i could done. i was startled by someone honking at me and realized it was my sister, Beth. She informed me the post office was open til 6, which bought me more time. after she came back out of the post office, she got in my car to help me stick and stamp! Thanks to her, we got them all done.
This makes it official, right!?
We are so excited and can't wait to celebrate with all of our amazing friends and family!

House Hunting

Ron and i having been house hunting for the past couple of months. We've been looking online for a while, but it is nice to see what is really out there.
We are lucky that the housing market is so bad right now, just great for first time buyers! There have been some great homes that have fallen into our price range, but one wrong thing can make the house not right. We are liking a house that has no dining room, and i love to entertain. i can't imagine never being able to have people over for dinner.
There are so many choices out there right now, i can't wait to see what we choose.

Easter Egg-cellence

Ron and i split a fun evening of egg dyeing and eggs-perimenting!

(my attempt at taping off, for the zig zag effect)

(my use of two colors, trying to keep the white clean! the other side was crying.)

(HULK! ron was working on marvel characters.)

(THE THING! this was looking so good and then the egg took a fall!
as you can see there were other attempts to try again!)
