This is such a happy time in our lives! This past week, I hauled all the stuff/junk/food/dishes from my house in town to the farmhouse & my Dad came to visit. It was his last chance before our big day.DSCN4772

When John & I merged our kitchens, we had quite a few doubles in the pantry.DSCN4879

I have been cooking in both places for the past 6 months, so naturally all of my favorite items ended up in both homes. DSCN4878 DSCN4877 DSCN4869 DSCN4867 DSCN4866Looks like we may have one conflict in the marriage. I like crunchy peanut butter and he likes creamy.DSCN4859

I think my Georgia-raised Grandmother “MaMoo” would be proud that I had creole seasoning in BOTH homes – just in case! DSCN4874

The whole farmhouse is a disaster right now, but things are coming along. I have gotten tons of help from neighbors, family and friends lately. I am so thankful for their help. I am heading home to Missouri this week & yesterday I finished moving out of my house in town. Now, all I have to do is a little cleaning.

My Dad was “super dad” and helped me move out the last few items on Father’s Day! He and Liz visited for the weekend and we had a great time. They stayed at the Prairie House Manor Bed & Breakfast. The food was AWESOME! DSCN4914

I made friends with the owner of this B & B while subbing in DeSmet. Their slow season at the B & B is during the winter, so he substitute teaches and works in town. Having our guest stay there worked out wonderfully, since the farmhouse is too small for guests!DSCN4918Thanks for reading!
