gather: week 4

Last week we were able to squeeze in a dinner with dear friends at the end of the week after many failed attempts to get together due to schedules! 

We had our friends Nicolai & Ali from Ballpoint + Pen over with their two precious little girlies!
We have known these two for a long time! When we were dating our respective mates Ali & I lived together and Greg & Nicolai lived together so we all spent A LOT of time together!! We called it the "guys house" which had 5 guys living in it and the "girl's house" which was chocked full of 6 girls in a three bedroom house! One of which was also dating a guy who lived with Greg & Nicolai!

{insert stereotypical Christian joke here}

Yes it was ridiculous....ridiculously fun! Haha!!

After weddings and babies we no longer get to spend hours on end together having movie marathons and Christmas in November celebrations that last entire weekends. But we do get dinner and the joy of seeing each others families grow and catching up!!

1 carton mixed mini heirlooms, 2 cloves garlic, minced, a handful of basil, chopped, olive oil, salt & pepper to taste. 1/4 cup red wine vinegar. Sometimes I throw in red onion and corn too! Mix together and let sit for at least 1/2 an hour to let the flavors mingle!

I kept it fairly light since it was a hot day when they came over. 
{I did baked chicken with garlic & herbs}
{a heirloom tomato & basil salad}
{and a corn and green bean ragout}

I snapped just a few pictures of our time together since my phone was mysteriously missing for most of the time they were here....I blame it on the 2 year old! Ha.

We loved getting together with them and catching up on life!
