A Beautiful Weekend

Wedding weekends are my absolute favorite kind of weekend. I have another weekend that is starting a little early for us. My brother and his family from Cincinnati, and friends from Indiana are all arriving today for a dear family friend's wedding. Our house will be packed to the gills with all our guests, it is definitely going to be a fun weekend... (my sister from Detroit cannot come, they are just waiting for the phone call to come to Korea and pick up their son)
We are kicking off the weekend tonight with dinner/desserts/cocktails at our house for anyone that is in town. I also get to celebrate Father's Day a little early with my dad, my sisters and my brother.


This gorgeous house has been converted into a venue for private parties and events in the city's Forest Park. This is where we will be going for the rehearsal dinner.

We will be munching on traditional STL food like toasted ravioli, gooey butter cake, and Imo's pizza outside in the beautiful yard.

Saturday is the big day, I finally get to see my first official "set up" of a couple get married. And of course on Saturday night, I plan to dance the night away!!!

  5. HI JIll, I have been reading your blog for a little while but never commented before. We used to live in St. Peter for a couple of years and I had totally forgotten about toasted raviolis and gooey butter cake until you mentioned them. We live in Cincinnati now and they have nothing even close to those things. There is however a bakery that does a pretty good french macaron.
    Have fun with your family.
