Fill in the Blank Friday; 4/29

My sister has been doing this for a few weeks now, so I thought I would jump right in with it!
1.   I am looking forward to       getting married.  Right now I'm at the point where I wish that Jason and I had decided to elope, that's how ready I am.

2.  Something kind of embarassing that I still love anyway is   any kind of dancing television program.  As a kid I would always dream of being able to move my body like a dancer, so I would join dance classes.  Then a month later I would get frustrated with the fact that I couldn't, so I would quit.  I honestly couldn't tell you how many times I did that.  Probably at least five (no exaggerations.)

3.  My favorite car is     probably an old school volvo station wagon.  I toured and lived in one a few summers ago, so seeing one brings me back to those happy memories.

4.  If I could pick one type of weather to live with for the rest of my life it would be    Rocky Mountain summers. They're still warm enough for flowers to grow, but still cold enough for snow to be found occasionally.

5.  My favorite thing to do after a bad/stressful day is     take a shower.  It's the perfect amount of alone time mixed with cleaning yourself of the B.S of the day.

6.  This weekend      I am taking a big exam.

7.  If I were a color, I'd be       green      because,       John Muir is my spiritual guru.

Mixing with Evie.

I would really like to introduce you to my new best friend, my kitchen aid mixer.
Yup.  I got it last Thursday from my grandparents as an early wedding gift.  It was the one thing that I desperately wanted on our wedding registry, and now I can't imagine my life without it. Since Thursday, I've baked two cakes, one quiche, and one puff pastry.
I also baked these delicious Dulce de Leche cupcakes with Evie this morning.  You can find the recipe here!  Yum!

Be prepared for some more eye-candy.  Lots more.

Happy Easter!

Happy Easter! 
Jason and I made the most amazing dinner!
We made a pecorino asparagus tart, lemon potato's, and tiny broccoli mushroom quiche.  Traditionally my family always had lamb on Easter, and Jason's family would have ham, so it was nice to make something a little special for a holiday with just the two of us.

How did you celebrate?

Sippin' soda with Billy Mack.

Jason and I moved a week and a half ago (that's why I've been absent!)  Billy, Katherine, and Edwin came from Pennsylvania and Michigan to help us celebrate at our housewarming party, and gosh we're so happy they did!

Since a little bit after the tour started, Billy and Katherine have been taste-testing local soda across the country.  What a clever idea!

Sweet Jesu Christe, I love Denise Nestor's illustrations.
I found her blog randomly, and fell completely in love.  I knew you would, too.
You can thank me later for sharing, if you choose.

Drag City

A few weeks ago Jason and I attended a Drag birthday party for our remarkably sweet friend Janelle.  Jason and I aren't really party people (I never have been), but it was a lot of fun!  Honestly, it was just nice to dance with my friends for a change.
My advice to you:
  1. Make some time this week to shake your groove thang. 
  2. Whoever said being the DD couldn't be fun?  It can be, and your body will thank you later!
