Something Saturdays (5/31/14)

This week I really have started to feel settled, like we're getting a routine. We're still super busy but kind of in a good way. Like, Michael's mom and sister brought over brunch for Memorial Day. Or Michael and his brothers went to a movie Wednesday night. Thursday, Michael and I just dropped in on his dad and stepmom and hung out. We're going to church on Sundays (btw we loved the church we went to last week, but we're going to check out a few more to cover our bases). It's's like we have a community. And it's wonderful. There are still a ton of people I need to see, our office still needs to become an office and not a junk room, but things are coming together. And I'm actually working now! (I once or twice a week...maybe three times a week....but still-yay! Well...sorta yay. I obviously prefer not working. But I'm working for Barefoot wines-essentially going to stores and giving out samples and trying to sell Barefoot. Usually they're like 4 hour shifts. I've been doing stuff like this for the last 3 years so it's good that I'm familiar with it :P)

In wedding planning news we met with one company for DJ/videography: definitely loved them, but we have some more meetings and some more thinking to do (Michael's brother has his own little DJ company and, even though he'll be a groomsman, we're considering using him as well-he insists he can make it work. So, we'll see!) I've also got my eye on one company for my hair and makeup on the big day. 

Quick tip: Wanna make the best homemade garlic bread ever with minimal effort?
Buy yourself some Epicurean Butter Roasted Garlic Herb Butter or Tuscan Herb Butter. Liberally spread it on each half of a baguette (or whatever kind of bread you so desire). Then, if you want, top with some shredded mozzarella and/or grated Parmesan. Bake in the oven at 400F degrees for like 20 minutes-if it's not toasting up, move it up towards the top of the oven until it gets browned. Cut and serve! SO GOOD.
(Disclaimer-I was provided with Epicurean butter to try and to use. However, I was under no obligation to review and all opinions are my own!)

Movies/TV Talk (assume there'll be spoilers)
Catching Fire-now THIS is how you turn a popular book series into movies. The casting is the #1 best part (which is a welcome change for books turned movies) and my favorite was Sam Claflin as Finnick. Perfect.
Can't wait for Mockingjay Parts 1 & 2. (Also-made me sad, again, about Philip Seymour Hoffman).
