Last week Robb and I decided to make Limoncello. It's one of our favorite after dinner drinks and surprisingly easy to make.

All you need is:

1 lit
er of Everclear alcohol
10 medium to large lemons
1 1/2 liters of water (6 1/3 cups)
3 lbs. of sugar (6 1/2 cups)
From there, you use a potato peeler and take all the lemon rinds off so there is no white pith on the peel. Place the rind peelings in a large container with the Everclear. Cover the container and let it sit for 7 days.
After a day the peels turn the alcohol a great yellow color. (see pix)

On day eight strain the peels and discard.
Next, mak
e the simple syrup in a large saucepan. Combine the water and sugar and let it simmer "fast" for 15 minutes. Then let simple syrup cool to room temperature. Finally add it to alcohol!

Just put it in the freezer over night and it's ready to drink by the next day! It's oh so yummy.

2nd Annual Girls Camping Trip, Watch Out!!!

About to hit the road for round 2, this year we're heading to Lost Lake. Let's try to avoid the Trenchcoat Mafia this year girls?
Yeah Ladeez! Let's pitch a tent and roast some wienies!!!

Funny Confession

I'm stealing this idea from SKF, b/c it made me think of her.

So the other night I was having a really great run and this Jackson 5 song came on and i just started singing at the top of my lungs (after looking around and making sure that no one was around). Then I saw this group of runners up ahead and my first reaction was to stop singing, but then i was like "no way!" I started singing even louder and continued until I passed them. By the look on their faces, they were quite amused ;) I have to say it was one of my best runs yet because of it...

So the invites went out yesterday!!! Robb & I couldn't be happier with how they came out. I'm not going to tell you much, you'll just have to wait and see, but they are just totally us.
It was really hard choosing between the several different designs. We narrowed it down to 2 and here's the one we didn't end up going with. It was really hard to pick between the 2, but seeing the final product, we knew for sure we'd made the right choice. Guess you'll just have to check the mail to see the final pick!
It's all really coming together! I had my first dress fitting last week with my Mom. I hadn't seen the dress since the first time i tried it on close to 4 months ago. I was super nervous that I wasn't going to like it anymore or that i changed my mind. But it was even more beautiful and perfect than the first time i put it on. I'd wear that thing everyday if i could. 81 days to go!

I stumbled upon this blog today and just fell in love with Denis Darzacq's work. Especially his Hyper series. The color is amazing, this one is my fave:
