Houseguests

Our dearest friends, Amy and Andrew, have been staying with TK and I for the month of January as they go through a time of transition in housing. I know what you're thinking: this should ruin our friendship and cause us to despise even the mention of each other's names from here on out. But you would be wrong because it's been lovely to share our space with these fine souls.

Not only do they provide lovely company in our home, but they've been helping this near-term pregnant girl clean and cook every stinking day! I honestly don't remember the last time I went to the grocery store or cooked a meal. With some elbow grease and his trusted Bar Keeper's Friend, Andrew even scrubbed down our entire kitchen. And bathroom. Hardly ruining our friendship.

Last night we feasted on decadent pork chops, just one of the many gourmet meals they've made for us. As TK and I approach the cusp of first-time parenthood, we've been blessed to be able to spend our January evenings with two kindred spirits in life. Look at these clowns!

It is so nice that you four can have this unique time as a fine farewell to a great era. Soon you all will be heading into new places. Enjoy this last part of your special ride.

Oh, the beauty of friends who not only are lovely, but help out with the chores!

Please pass along to TK how beautiful we think the new kitchen is!!! He's good!

As far as clowns go, I think they're a cute pair! So fun that you can have this shared housing experience.

The dinner looks yummy.

Also...what kind of soap is Bar Keepers Friend and where do you find it? I'm intrigued!
