One Week

I've been thinking about coming back with a little wedding recap post, a "hey everyone, I'm back!" post...but the truth is, I've been recovering all week. Weddings take it out of you, man. In the best possible way, of course, but even when you're about to explode with joy, a long weekend spent entertaining family and friends (not to mention celebrating until the wee hours of the morning several nights in a row) is bound to leave a girl reaching for the pillow.

A few nights with 10 hours of blissful, uninterrupted sleep helps. A nasty head cold doesn't. But we're on the up and up over here now, and even had some friends over for our first (hopefully) semi-regular puzzle night last night. But I do want to share stories and photos, so I'll just ask you to be patient for a little while as I continue to settle back into life.

It's our one-week anniversary, life is starting to return to normal, and I am filled with a renewed sense of optimism when it comes to playing housewife. I want to use my new toys (waffle iron! juicer! ice cream attachment for KitchenAid!) and start on some of the home-projects I've had on my list since before the wedding, and some new ones too. My Pinterest boards are filling up with non-wedding ideas, and I even created a bulletin board on top of my craft dresser that I'm going to fill with projects. My goal is to do one per week, no matter how small (bags in closet? check! well, mostly).

So hello, folks. I'm back, and ready for action!

  1. Glad to hear you are on the mend.  I am looking forward to seeing you both soon. 

  2. Ooooh - I can't wait to see more pictures! Happy one week anniversary! :) 

  3. Just FYI: Sara and my favorite ice cream recipe:
    Place 2/3 cups of coarsely chopped Oreo's in a covered bowl and refrigerate. Whisk 2 large eggs until light and fluffy, then which in 3/4 cp sugar (a little at a time) until completely blended.  Add 2 cps heavy cream and 1 cp milk, and whisk to blend.  Blend in 2 tsp of peppermint extract.  Add to your fancy ice cream maker and kick it off.  About 2 minutes before it's done (once it stiffens a bit) add the cookies.

    Welcome back!

  4. Congrats, Kim! You were such a beautiful bride, and am thrilled for you. Can't wait to see more photos! 

  5. Thanks, mom. Hope the move is going well! Let's chat tonight :)

  6. Thanks, Shonelley! It has been way too long; let's try to see each other soon?
