Deringer Wedding!

Ben and I traveled to Blackberry Cove this weekend, to witness one of the most awesome weddings of all time! Clark and Anne got married, and it was one of the sweetest, greatest ceremonies ever, because they are SO happy together and so in love! Yay, love!

It was a camping weekend, so we headed in on Friday night. We ate pizza, played games, and drank beer! On Saturday, we headed to Yellow Springs and Young's Dairy Farm. Mmm, ice cream! Then it was time for the big event! A beautiful wedding, and then a super fun party.

Congratulations to Mr. and Mrs. Deringer!

The Mine Mural

Tonight we went to Stuart's Opera House to see Steve Earle. Beforehand, we went to The Mine Tavern a few doors down for some beers. They had added a patio since the last time we were there. Check out the mural. Look at the perspective on that dock! And look!! That one lady is NAKED!!!

Elliot is a very lucky man!

We ordered pizza from Mama Renie's across the street. LOOK at that little BABY PIECE!! Sooooo cute.

Dream Shoes

Today I got my DREAM SHOES in the mail!! A big shoutout to Tasha for discovering these shoes. When I saw hers, I knew that I HAD TO HAVE THEM. And they fit perfectly! I love them.

Black Bean Beef Burgers

Ben's coworker gave him her recipe for black bean beef burgers, and I made them tonight. They were delicious!

Grilled peaches on our salads, too.

Ben and Joey went mushroom hunting, and came back with a huge bag of chanterelles!

I sauteed them in some butter with onions, and we ate them with pasta.

Misuse of Quotation Marks

Today is Cheryl's birthday, so we celebrated at work with a cake! I guess Kroger didn't really want her to have a Happy Birthday.

Today, Nancy had a bunch of us over for some swimming to celebrate the fact that her sister Valaree is in town! We were drinking Suzanne's famous Chi Chis, which are made by filling a frothy pitcher full of pineapple juice, frozen lemonade concentrate, 1 can of Coco Lopez and a fifth of vodka. When you're ready to pour your drink, you pour some of that slushy deliciousness into a cup and then add some seltzer water to fill up the rest.

Valaree misunderstood the directions and thought you were supposed to add VODKA! She made a cocktail for me (vodka + vodka = lots of vodka), and before you know it, somehow I ended up with Kent's ushanka on my head:




Etc., etc., etc....


Needless to say it was a very fun afternoon!

Grilled Pizza

One of my favorite things about summertime is making grilled pizza. This one has pesto, grilled shrimp, artichoke hearts, feta, and tomatoes.
