{Recipe} German Pancakes & Whiskey and Apple Syrup

{Recipe} German Pancakes & Whiskey and Apple Syrup
Breakfast is probably my favorite meal to make.
The above breakfast was probably the most amazing (and easy) breakfast I’ve ever made.
I used a German Pancake recipe via Smitten Kitchen. I changed it just a tad by using my 12-inch cast iron skillet for the pan rather than two 9-inch cake pans. I’d suggest doing this because it was awesome. The cast iron skillet gives a slightly crispy edge to the crust of the pancake. So, so good.
But, the secret is in the sauce. Or, in this case…the syrup.
My husband claimed this syrup as the best syrup he has had in his entire life.
There was plate licking involved.

{Real Party} My Wedding

{Real Party} My Wedding
I could have sworn that I had posted my wedding on here before…but, searching through my posts I couldn’t find anything about it. My hubby and I are coming up on our six-year anniversary. 
That of course has got me thinking about our big day. 
I loved our wedding. We worked really hard on making it special (and affordable). We tried to pay for most of the event ourselves, but we were very thankful to have help from friends and family. It was an ideal start for a young couple and it has only got better each and every day that we’ve been married. 
 We put our wedding together before the invention of Pinterest and the many wedding blogs out there. Part of me looks forward to one of our bigger anniversary dates so I can throw a huge anniversary party utilizing all of those new tools. 
Here are some of my favorite details of the wedding:
I married the man of my dreams and my best friend. I’m pretty much the luckiest chic on the planet.

My mom handmade all of the dresses for the wedding party

My aunt made my wedding bouquet and added in a handkerchief and cameo from my great-grandmother

We scraped together enough money to pay for a wonderful Jazz band—I wish that I could pay them three times what we did. They were absolutely amazing.

My family made tasty desserts for our dessert and coffee reception

My little sister was my maid of honor—Isn’t she lovely?

Our wedding party was slightly LARGE—It was nice being surrounded by friends and family

The Mother-of-the-Bride and the Mother-of-the-Groom accidentally got the same dresses… but, they looked gorgeous!

Tomorrow I’ll have a post about the DIY elements of the wedding. Thanks for letting me share!

Bloggers for Birth Kits

Bloggers for Birth Kits
This past week I had the pleasure of getting together with Megan, The Boho Mama, and friends to help put together birth kits to be sent to women of Papua New Guinea via Bloggers for Birth Kits.
Putting together the Birth Kits

Delicious snacks for all the ladies working on the kits

Adorable drink station set up by Megan… seriously most adorable cups and saucers, ever!
Each kit comes with 3X3 plastic square, gauze squares, string, razor blade, 1/8 bar of soap, and plastic gloves
Reading the stories about the conditions of other people in the world when giving birth is extremely eye opening and humbling. It is easy here in America to complain about the conditions we give birth in. We fight about what is better for ourselves and our babies— 
home birth? birthing center? hospital? midwife? OBGYN? 
I feel fortunate to have those choices,
 even if I might have complained about one thing or another along the way.  
I am thankful to the people out there that help to remind me of just how fortunate I am and give me opportunities like this one to help others out there who have not been as fortunate as me. 
More information for Blogging for Birth Kits and ways to help donate to this great cause can be found over at The Mommyhood Memos. So far 4861 birth kits have been donated!
