A Very Fun Saturday Night

Went to one of our favorite homes Saturday night for dinner.  Favorite for a lot of reasons. 

1.  We love who lives there—Duane and Todd and their kids Daniel and Mari.

(Mari’s Minnie Mouse dress and Daniel’s Mickey hat and Disney shirt were their birthday outfits from a few weeks back.  Oh, I probably don’t have to tell you, but Mari is drinking grape juice.) 

2.  The food is always awesome. 

This time we had Thai Eggplant and Chicken curry

with a Thai cucumber salad, which Duane has blogged about before.  He gave the recipe on his blog, and I can say I’m a big fan.

3.  I’m crazy about their house.  I took pictures while we were there, but I forgot to shoot their house.  But don’t worry, we’ll invite ourselves back over so I can do that.   Because their place is like a country bed and breakfast, John and I talk about a having a family retreat out there one weekend where we spend the night, eat pop popcorn and watch movies.  Duane and Todd haven’t said no yet, so hopefully we can insinuate ourselves out there again as soon as possible.

I Promise I’m Not Dead

Just really busy. I got the September of Elle Decor and it inspiring me in ways that shelter magazines haven’t lately. I hope to post about it soon, and saying that has probably jinxed me from doing it within the next month. Maybe I’ll surprise myself.
