Competitive Observing

I cook pretty much the same way that I ski.

I don’t so much actually do it, as I just like to buy the cute outfits and accessories that go along with it. But man do I love to put everything on and watch someone else do it. Now that’s an Olympic sport I can get behind. Competitive observing. I think it would be big in Sweden.

Last night our friend Joey came over to bake a pumpkin pie. And in honor of the occasion, I donned an apron and curled my hair. While Justin tried really hard not to show how excited he was at the idea of actual home cooking coming from our kitchen.

Joey asked me for a rolling pin and I pulled out a Martha Stewart french roller made of birch wood ideal for making thin crusts. Which I knew from the tag that was still on it. Oh, did you just get this today?

Nah, I’ve had it for about four years.

Deep sigh. Roll of eyes. Of course you have.

Happy Friday friends!! I hope your weekend is full of chasing big dreams and going where your heart takes you….

Even if that’s over to Sweden to take up the latest obscure winter sport that’s sure to sweep the globe.

***HUGE thanks to our amazing couple Kristin & Bill for getting us maybe the best gift ever in these J&M monogrammed aprons. I promise to keep mine squeaky clean! :)

**OH! And congrats to the winner of our Sneezers contest, Miss Asha Lea for her home remedy of honey & cinnamon!

    Love it! Just yesterday I decided I needed to bake and tried a zucchini bread….hubby took photos of me to preserve the rare moment and I’m wishing now I had a cute apron! High five for celebrating all the little moments in life :) Have a great weekend!

    Mary, you guys look so cute in your aprons. I had a dream last night that I won a contest – the prize being the chance to photograph you and Justin together. So you came to my town (little Greentown, IN). The weather was bad, no pretty light or scenery was to be found. It wasn’t going well at all but you were still so gracious. I feel like that would be true in real life too.

    pumpkin pie – delicious! though if you ever feel up to getting your hands dirty, a sour cherry cobbler is a *snap* to make and doesn’t involve the heart palpitations that can accompany make pie crust!

    We’re the SAME PERSON! Michael cooks, I observe and then I clean up :):)
