Welcome to our family, welcome to our blog. We are going to try and keep this current for those of you reading from afar (hey mom claire!) But we make no promises. And really, people don't want constant blog updates until there are kids. So in about 5 years this blog will really start going.
Please enjoy our sporadic posts on life as a married couple

Our friend John took a few days leave (he's a Marine based somewhere else in the States that I cannot remember for the life of me) for a wedding, and came home. We offered to host a little get together so that he could see his close friends in one place - and not have to try and get together with a bunch of people at different times during one weekend. So I got to play hostess again, and I loved every minute! I actually cooked things ahead of time and the kitchen was clean by the time guests arrived. Clean! Can you believe it? I am going to get better at doing this for every gathering. Anywho, I made some good snacks like PWs Mushrooms Stuffed with Brie & Peanut Butter Brownies (love Betty Crocker boxed brownies). I also made the Austrian favorite, Gluehwein, and got everyone hooked (D & Linds, I still owe you that recipe)! Unfortunately, I forgot to take pictures. But I am hosting a Betty Crocker Cookie Exchange this weekend, and I will be making some of the same things, so I will remember to take pictures! Anywho, pictures of the party, that's all you really want anyways, right?
Kevin & Linds, the Newlyweds.
The ladies (Linds, D, Sarah, Me) with mugs of Gluehwein & a Hangar 24 for me!
The Fellas (Matt, Kevin, Adam, John, Monet) - weird to see Matt with a beer!
I love the Lord, my (fire)man, coffee & wine! We have two precious cats and one adorable pup. I bake, sew, crochet, & love being creative in any way.
