A new home…and Tamales!

So, Nick and I found a new place! SO excited! It's right in the neighborhood we want to be in, directly across the street a good friend of ours, and just blocks from the Great Basin Community Food Co-op, delicious restaurants, cute boutiques, and the area doggie park...what more could we ask for? It also has hardwood floors throughout which was a non-negotiable for me. I will post pics as soon as we move in and get settled...we get the keys and sign the lease officially on the 15th. Can't wait to have our own little place! As a final send-off to our old house, we hosted one of our famous tamale parties on Sunday, the 1st. It was a lot of fun and as usual, we had many people filling our home--close to 40 actually! It always makes me feel so loved when so many show up to grace us with their presence. I'm sure part of it is the good food, but I really think everyone enjoys being a part of our family for an evening. Here are some pics of tamale production... unfortunately none are of the final product as they were eaten before I could get pics. The tamales were accompanied by homemade mashed pinto beans, spanish rice, and homemade salsa.

Thank you to all the wonderful friends who filled our house one last time... here's to many more get togethers in the new house!
