This and That


1. Our good friends, Janette and Mike, got married last weekend and we loved celebrating with them on their special day. The boys were little wedding crashers at times, but they had fun.

2. Photo from the wedding. We get dressed up sometimes.

3. Quotation marks gone wrong.

4. Maxwell started preschool this week so both boys are in school now. They need to stop growing up already.

5. The Patriots play the Chiefs tonight. They are my two favorite teams so I am not sure who to cheer for.

6. Caleb loves music and is really into Tom Petty and John Denver lately. I’m ok with that. Moana was getting a little old..ha!

7. We had the privilege of having Chef Art Smith in our home on Sunday. He’s such a great guy!


1. Our best friend Janette got married last weekend and we made pasta salad for 250 people. We had a ton of fun at the wedding and are so happy for the bride and groom.

2. They served donuts at the wedding instead of cake and the boys were VERY happy about that:)

3. Are you ready for pumpkin recipes yet? If so, what pumpkin recipes do you need? We have a TON of pumpkin recipes here, but I am always up for creating more:)

4. I might wear this every day this fall.

  1. The boys looked like they had a blast at the wedding – crashing and all – lol…..
    That was very nice of you to make pasta salad for that may people…..I’m sure the bride an groom were very happy.
    You both look good dressed up…..not sure about the pumpkin recipes yet …..I think I’m still in summer mode…..We are still very much into baseball here – we might be in the pennant race and since we no longer have a football team I’m rooting for the Chiefs!
