The Paper Anniversary

March 31, 2010




I wanted to celebrate our anniversary by making a big list – a bucket list, if you will. We spent all day brainstorming big (and little) things we want to accomplish over our lifetime together.

I decided to make it official by typing it out on my vintage typewriter. Only getting it notarized would make it more official.

Here are some of my favorites:
021: get a palm reading
030: start a fire without matches
031: watch all the godfather movies – in a row
039: make s’mores from scratch
041: go to a drive-in movie
045: fly a kite
066: make a short film
074: have a full blown pet funeral (for scooty, most likely… awww)
076: in one year grow more food than we buy
090: find a signature scent
097: watch the sun set and stay awake to watch the sun rise

Do you have a bucket list? What are some things on it?

Bombs Away

I picked up another Bombs Away Oklahoma tee at Birdie this weekend. Love it.

Anniversary Breakfast

March 29, 2010


I had planned on making homemade powdered donuts for our anniversary breakfast but decided on a German pancake.

Grandma’s German Pancake
2 eggs
1/2 c milk
1/2 c flour (I used whole wheat pastry flour)
A pinch of salt
4 tbs. of butter (you can get away with 2)

Powdered Sugar

Heat your oven to 400F and melt butter in a cast iron skillet.

Mix your eggs, milk, flour and salt together until smooth (no lumps like normal pancake batter).

Pour batter into cast iron skillet on top of the butter. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden brown on top.

Top with lemon and powdered sugar. We also used a little bit of honey. You can also use jam or maple syrup as well. Whatever suits your fancy.

Little Piggies

I don’t care how ugly my feet are – a fresh pedicure always makes me feel a little more pretty and put together.

Today we celebrated 365 days as Mr. and Mrs. by lazing around in our pajamas, cooking good food, watching the entire first season of United States of Tara and making a big list. More on the list later.
