Wine & Dine Me Baby! 5,000 flyers. Pizza. Movie and a Kickstarter video.

We've been married a year and a day.
July 21st is our "wedding" anniversary.
I quote the above due to the fact we didn't really have a wedding as so much to oppose to just popping into a courthouse and laughing "I will.", as Gabi straightens out my glasses.
Don't get me wrong now---- we love each other deeply.
But just as we are married to each other, we are also married to our dreams, goals and ideas.
We celebrate success.

So yesterday, for the 7th day in a row.
I awoke at 5 am to work on our Kickstarter video.

Now for those of you who don't know what Kickstarter is THE new way to fund creative ideas and ambitious endeavors. It gives the little everyday person -with an idea of course- to announce it to the internet world.

Not only that, you can get friends, family and complete strangers to fund it!
You'd think my favorite part would be the funding, right?
No, it's the ideas. I love when they are successful.

To see goals in their conceptual state and becoming reality.
Changing the life of that person between 1-90 days!
Changing the world as we know it!

It gives me shivers.

See the full view here.

Also yesterday, we had our flyers come in.
Thank's to the generosity of our local hydroponic store In and Out Gardens.
Gabi has the gift of gab. Note the name Gabi.
So he truly enjoys the fact that he get's to pass out and flood all of Oregon with these badboys.
As for me, I'm nerdy and can be found either hidden behind a barricade of books,
behind laptop---
Or covered in paint at 11 o' clock at night, while listening to reruns of Roseanne.

I'm cheap.

Lol. Seriously, I run like $9.00 a bottle!

I ended up making my "wow, this is tart!" face each time I took a sip.

Even though Gabi and I still carried on with our day-to-day routine of work & baby Anastasia-
we still did a little something to commemorate our 1st year of marriage.

Before it hit the oven:

Behold the Train Wreck

After a little too much of myself to drink, this menagerie had manifested in my kitchen.
Made from scratch. Because I don't believe there isn't anything I can't master on the first try.

Made without a specific recipe in mind, measuring and pizza tossing skills, our pizza had:
Homemade Crust Infused with Butter, Oregano & Coriander
Fresh Homemade Basic Tomato Sauce Saturated with Wine
Oyster Mushrooms
Baby Bella Mushrooms
2 bags of Parmesan & Mozzarella Blend
Chevre (Goat Cheese)
Red Bell Pepper

It weighed an estimated 8-12 pounds and about 3,500 calories.

Mr. L would have eaten the thing alone.
But something magical happened in that oven.


Our little mess turned out to be an actual deep dish pizza!
The crust had a slight crispness on the outside and the moist, fluffy goodness within.
The sauce was sweet and savory and our choice of veggies married beautifully.
Oh! And the cheese....SO creamy and rich----so in the end

we ate half of the pizza.

And watched a movie about us. With friends. :)



  1. That pizza looked so yummy...wish I could join you...awesome job...
