Best Dinner Ever!!

So I decided to go on a diet to start losing weight for the wedding. That also means that Jeremy is on a diet. Last night i decided to try something different and it turned out to be FANTASTIC!!! I bought two pork chops and seared them before putting them into the oven @ 350 for 40 minutes. When you put the meat in the oven, make sure to add 1/2 cup wine and 1/2 cup chicken broth or water. (that way it will be very tender) Then i took the pan that i had seared the meat in and i sauteed some onion and garlic. Then i added some chopped asparagus. After the meat was done I put all the juices into the pan with the veggies and put the meat on a plate in the microwave to keep warm. Reduce the liquid in the pan until about 1 cup or so remains. Then add some Sour Cream (i'd say i put about 1/2 cup or so) and stirred everything together. Then for a final touch i put 2 tbls of rosemary in the sauce also. Put some on meat and serve w/ a salad or potatoes or whatever you want.

Our Trip to Chuck Town

So for the past week we've been in Georgetown and Charleston for a little Getaway. We got to just walk around and we got to go to the Heyward Washington House. This house was built in 1772 by Daniel Heyward for his son Thomas Heyward, who signed the Declaration of Independence. This house was also historically important becuase George Washington stayed here in 1791. The Grimke sisters, Sarah and Angelina, also lived in this house for awhile. The Grimke sisters were early abolitionists in South Carolina. I Loved going there this week. I really just needed to get away from Columbia and everything for while. Can't wait to go again!

Wedding Plans so Far

The Ceremony:

The ceremony is going to be at Shandon Presbyterian Church in Columbia, SC at 5pm. This is the church that I grew up in.

The Reception:

The reception is going to be at The Hall at Canal and Senate which is owned by Dupre's Catering.

What we are thinking is that the colors are going to be lavender and green with kind of a 30s/40s vibe. We are going to hire a DJ to do the music and we are also going to have a really cool suprise for the guests as they first come into the hall from the ceremony.
Jeremy really wants an Ice Sculpture so we are going to make that happen too. All in all i think its starting to come together! Only 14 months to go!! :)
