Brunch with Bobby (and Aisha and Gus)!

…visited us for brunch last weekend.

I know it took us awhile to plan, but thanks for coming by!

Grey is still saying his name,


Des Pearsons in Des Moines!

…for the awesome visit in Des Moines.

Now it’s your turn to come here,


The Lattas visit!

…for visiting all the way from Louisville!

The guests keep on coming,


It's a Schleicher (and Ma Shady) visit!

…for visiting and joining us at the Field Museum a few weeks ago!

I’m really behind on these,


More visitors!

…for stopping by for a quick lunch!

(And thanks for picking up the tab.)

We’ll do dinner and drinks (on us) next time,


…and to Milan, Ciappa, and Tiggins for making the drive down from Milwaukee for what turned out to be an amazing St. Patrick’s Day weekend last month.

Grey finally met Henson (and partook in some shamrock-themed shenanigans)…

Henson and Grey meet with shamrocks!

…and then Emjo joined us for a lasagna dinner.

Pre-Ween lasagna!

The initial spark for the weekend was Ween, who played two live shows at the Aragon Ballroom on March 16th and 17th (we went to the show on the 17th).

The last time I saw Ween play live—with many of these same friends in attendance—was nearly twenty years ago.

Uncle Milan made Grey laugh…

Milan funny.

…and Ciappa choke.

Milan murder.

And then Marla joined us for a shrimp boil.

Shrimp boil!

Then… things got weird. And drunk. And werewolf-y.


In the end, it was a fantastic weekend that made me nostalgic for days past, but also appreciative of lifelong friendships that will certainly last well into the future.

These are just some of the people I love.

Let’s do it again soon,


Ericka in Chicago!

…for visiting us from Houston this past weekend!

We hung at Mellow Yellow,


…to get back to L.A. a few weeks ago, where I ran into Kelsey at LAX (on her way to Dublin, via Berlin, where we would meet up again later)…

Kelsey at LAX!

…and then hung out with friends for a Super Bowl Food Night at Suephus’ place.

Suephus' Super Bowl Food Night!

Miss all you guys,


Are you ready to Royal Rumble?!?

Jodi went home $30 richer,


It's a Steib Family visit (minus Pam)!

More coming in tonight,
