A peek at our Fourth of July break

Our Fourth of July weekend was a whirlwind of travel and food. Looking back, it’s almost impossible to recount all the stuff we did! The main event was our two night trip to Table Rock Lake near the Arkansas border to stay at our friend’s lake house with a slew of our other friends. We […]



Happy Father’s Day!

Happy Father’s day to the best fathers any two “kids” could ask for! I am definitely my father’s daughter, and Neil is almost a clone of his dad. Cheers to Dad’s everywhere!



Happy Mother’s Day

Being married is awesome because you get twice the families and twice the mom love. For all the craziness in our lives, they are always there to tell us when to slow down and  when to make the next move. Happy Mother’s Day!



Our Last Twenty-Something Easter

Kind of a foreboding title eh? It’s true though, we’ll both be thirty the next time Easter rolls around. And as kind of detached, non-committal, sans-religion twenty-somethings, I’m always afraid of the year we’ll finally lose the ability to slip through the cracks of these holidays undetected. With family out of town and no kids […]



St. Patrick’s Day Pizza: Asparagus and Potato Pizza with Pesto and Carmelized Onions

So if you’ve been following us a bit, you know we started a little tradition last Thanksgiving of making pizza themed around every holiday (evidence here and here). Nothing really that deep, just good pizza with ingredients or colors we feel are representative of the upcoming holiday. Well for St. Patrick’s Day we went a […]



Happy Valentine’s Day! Pig and Pineapple Pizza on Beet Crust

After the success of Thanksgiving Pizza, Neil and I knew it was something to make habit for all the little holidays throughout they year that we often don’t pay much attention to. We’ve been looking forward to our Valentine’s edition pizza ever since. It’s not that we ignore Valentine’s but typically we’re always a little […]



New Year’s Eve Party 2011

It’s pretty much tradition now that we spend New Year’s with Anja and Steve and their fam. We scrutinize the menu for the weeks leading up to New Year’s and like the food-obsessed people we are, can’t help but overeat and take pictures. Man things are changing fast… But if all change is this cute, […]



We’re Back! But First, a Little Holiday Recap…

We are back after a whirlwind trip to Minnesota for the holidays. If you remember, the weather ruined our plans to travel last year, so we were eager and past due for a good visit with family. It was so weird exchanging brown and rainy Missouri for buried and snowy Minnesota. It was the most […]

She’ll enjoy the Holiday Sparkle Swag Bag and all the goodies inside! Here is what she had to […]
