It’s All Fun and Games

Pre-wedded Eats Update: Just rolled home from the extensive dinner at Lucca tonight. We tried everything, and I mean EVERYTHING, on the menu. That is eight different primis and five secondis, plus three delectable desserts. Oh, and let’s not forget the wine! And here are the winners:

The tables will all have bread, olive oil and various cheese plates on them upon arrival.

Primi options: risotto, gnocchi, mixed greens or bolognese

Secondi options: scallops, pork or steak

Dessert: gelato

YUM! Too bad I won’t be able to stuff myself the night before the wedding because I’ll be pouring myself into my wedding dress the following day.

The mom's should have called each other to avoid wearing the same outfit! Yikes!

Too many options

Four of the eight primis (clockwise from the top): gnocchi, polenta, bolognese, risotto

Tomorrow, we are going to take a trip to Lowe’s to get some black and gold paint. Why you might ask? Because my dad’s legal assistant’s husband made us our very own bags (or cornhole) set from scratch to be used during the cocktail hour of our wedding reception. How awesome is that?! I now have the pleasure (no, really, I’m excited to do this) of custom painting the two sets. He has them all sanded down ready to go, so all I need is a little paint and some open space in the garage. One of the sets with be Marcus’ and the other set will be mine. His will have a distinct Iowa Hawkeye theme and mine will be more wedding theme related utilizing our logo. I can not wait to get these started to see how they turn out. I’ll be sure to photograph them throughout the process and give pointers to those of you who would like to paint your own.

Marcus' will look something like these with the tigerhawk in the middle.

To-Do lists: I love the feeling of putting a check mark in a box.
