This weekend was filled with so many fun activities, starting off with our stay at Timberline Lodge, then dinner with some friends here at our place on Saturday. I am not much for large crowds and busy bars so we tend to host or attend dinners with friends to catch up.
Josh is already in his three-week long vacation mode and was so helpful getting everything together. I kept telling him that I like vacation Josh a lot because he’s so helpful. Last night, he was in charge of mixing drinks for our guests, and setting the lighting and starting a fire.
His special cocktail for the evening was a mix of Cointreau, cranberry juice and champagne. It was so delicious that I ended up imbibing more than usual and its effects snuck up on me.
It’s rare that I am not the one behind the camera (Josh wanted me to be sure to tell you that he is the talented photographer behind all of these high quality photos – LOL).
Usually when we throw a dinner party, I feel overly busy trying to cook and host at the same time, but with Josh taking care of our guests as they arrived, mixing cocktails, I was able to focus on wrapping up the food (the menu: potato leek soup, slow roast, and Vichy carrots).
After dinner, we all sat down by the fire and played Apples to Apples (one of my favorite party board game). With the right group, it can be quite funny and entertaining. That was certainly the case last night! Our friends are the best!
