Over labor day weekend Ari and I went to Sarasota, Florida. We had wanted to make a trip to visit Ari’s grandparents, and decided to tie it in with our one year wedding anniversary! And let me tell you it was the perfect little getaway! […]

One year anniversary

One year anniversary

Since our wedding day I’ve been looking for an excuse to put my dress back on, so naturally I would have a one year anniversary photo shoot! To save money my mom was our photographer and I couldn’t be happier with our pictures! I still cant believe Ari & I have been married for a year! Cheers to us! And all you other love birds out there!

Whatโ€™s cookinโ€™ Wednesday : Schnitzel

Whatโ€™s cookinโ€™ Wednesday : Schnitzel

This weeks meal: schnitzel with brussel sprouts.

Schnitzel has always been my favorite food as a child and I still love it today! During our trip to Austria, Ari ate schnitzel essentially everyday. Traditional schnitzel is made from pork, but Ive always preferred either chicken or turkey schnitzel.

Things you need: eggs, splash of milk, flour, bread crumbs, chicken breasts

First, I like to prepare the chicken. I cut out all the yucky parts and thinly slice the chicken breast (how thin you slice it depends on personal preference). Next grab 3 dishes that are big enough for one chicken piece at a time. (I used plastic to-go containers & lids) Fill one with 2 eggs and a splash of milk, the other with flour and the third dish with bread crumbs. (more…)

Chimney Rock

Chimney Rock

Since our Dachstein climbing experience, I’ve been itching to go hiking again. Ari and I had planned on heading into the North Carolina mountains awhile ago, but we just hadn’t had the time. This weekend we finally had a chance and picked Chimney Rock. We hit the road semi early to begin our hiking adventure, since it was about 2.5 hr drive!

As we got out of the car, we felt the extreme heat and humidity, but we trekked along nevertheless.ย  Let me tell you, deciding to go hike in 98 degrees is no joke! Ari and I were drenched in sweat, but we were able to cool off in the mist of the waterfall. We continued our hike and made it to the top of Chimney Rock! (All I could think of at this point, was getting to our air-conditioned car as fast as possible) (more…)
