Dr. & Dr. Reynolds

This weekend, MZ headed to Little Rock for Kirk and Kim’s Wedding. Kirk and MZ went to college together at the U of A and I’ve gotten to know and love Kim and Kirk through tailgating for Razorback games! Their wedding ceremony and reception was held at the Arkansas Arts Center in downtown Little Rock. All of it was absolutely beautiful! One of MZ’s favorite parts was the mini pizza, as he loves all things pizza! Instead of a grooms cake, there was a gelatto bar, which was also super tasty! We all danced the evening away! After the reception we headed down town with Darla and Kevin (also some of MZ’s friends from college). We wanted to watch the rest of the Cubs game, so we went to Gusano’s – unfortunately they lost, so we moved on. I’m not sure the name of the place where we ended up – and yes, I know that’s probably a bad sign. But we had a blast regardless, really, do you need to know where you are as long as you get home safely! I think not!
Congratulations to Dr. Kirk and Dr. Kim!

Fun in Second City

We went to Chicago this past weekend for Tom and Stephanie’s wedding. We took a few days off before did some sightseeing around town. I’ve never been to Chicago before and I absolutely loved it! We drove all night on Wednesday night with Mark and Lane and hit Chicago right at about morning rush hour. We went straight to the zoo in Lincoln Park, which is a great zoo by the way! Then we went downtown to Michigan Avenue and ate at Giordano’s Pizza which is the best deep dish pizza EVER! Then we went to H&M. where apparently I proved my shopping prowess! Then we went back to Lincoln Park to check in to our Hotel. We stayed at the Belden Stratford Hotel which is Fabulous! It’s part hotel and part apartments. We all took a much needed nap!!!
Thursday night we went to Tom and Stephanie’s apartment for drinks then out to a club. Friday, those that weren’t in the wedding headed out to Navy Pier and took and architectural tour through the city on a river boat – this was probably my favorite part! We also at the infamous Billy Goat Tavern, where the SNL skit Cheebourger Cheebourger originated. Then we went to the Museum of Science and Industry where Mike was enthralled with the Poop to Power display. By the end of the afternoon, Mike and I were the only ones left in our tour group and we were about a $40 cab ride away from our hotel, so we decided to make and adventure out of public transit. It was much cheaper (about $8 in total) but about twice as long, but we saw parts of the city that we wouldn’t have seen otherwise. Friday night, we went to a great dinner out to celebrate my new job… Kinzie Chophouse – it was wonderful – probably the best steak I’ve ever had. We walked around downtown and headed back to the hotel for some much needed rest.

Saturday, Mike and I walked to Wrigley Field and bought t-shirts to prove we were there and headed the 3.6 miles home – we did alot of walking and hailed a cab about halfway back… Saturday night was the wedding – the whole reason we were there… it was so wonderful! The entire affair was at Carnivale, a Cuban restaurant in the downtown area. Everything was bright colors and pop art and it really illustrated the creativity and passion of Tom and Stephanie. Stephanie even made her own wedding cake – it was gorgeous! We ate and drank and drank some more and danced the night away.

Sunday was a rude awakening in that we had to go back to reality and drive 10 hours back to Fayetteville – it wasn’t too bad – it helps to travel with more than 2 people so that everyone can nap. We made it home safe and sound right about 12:31 – precisely as predicted by Lane.

I really loved Chicago! Although I may have other things to say about it had it been the middle of winter.

Happy 1 year Anniversary to Liz and Chad!!!

So one year ago today, we were all gathered in Taos, NM at a fabulous compound to celebrate the marriage of Liz and Chad! It was such a great time for everyone.
I’m so very proud of you both for making it this far and going about it fairly easily! You have a great relationship and I know neither of you could ask for anymore in someone to spend the rest of your life with! I could not ask for better friends in my life either! Liz has been there through WAY too much and I know Chad has at least heard most of the stories and actually experienced some of them as well!
Here’s to many, many more years of wedded bliss, and not too much pressure to have a kid or 2!
Hope to see you soon!

B-C Wedding

Brad and Jennifer got married on April 19th at the Ozark Mountain Smoke House – it was pretty much the perfect wedding for two really great people.

Ari and her “Little Black Dress Brigade” did all the planning and décor and it was of course beautiful! Sorry for the late post and CONGRATULATIONS to both of you! Of course we wen’t out afterwards and we can’t go the night without doing shots!

3 weeks and counting…

Well I’m really pretty proud of myself – I haven’t had a coke in 3 weeks!

So what’s been going on…

  • Valentine’s Day was great! Mike sent me some beautiful flowers in a really cool vase which apparently was the selling point! But they were all very pretty together. We went to dinner at Tapinazo’s which was good but we definately think its more of a warm weather place where we can sit on the patio. Then we went to Stir to celebrate Lane’s birthday.
  • Saturday night was the Stock the Bar Party – Olive Us Are Getting Together for Brad and Jennifer! It was a BLAST! Everyone had a fabulous time and we polished off way too much alcohol – who is surprised
  • Bible Study ended on Monday night which is good and not so good – Good because I never really got into this study and bad because that was really the only time I got to see all the Benton County girls… we’ll have to make time with out Beth Moore.

Pregnant Friend Tally has increased by two – Melanie and Leigh are both due in late August – nothing wrong with Virgo babies!

This weekend is Jennifer’s Bachelorette Party in Kansas City – it should be just as fun… Erin has done a great job at pulling everything together.

Ok so that’s my update… more soon!
