It was inspired by the annual 'Chili and Brew' fest held in Aspen each year. And while our house can't really compare to this scenery,
...we like to think it's a good time regardless!
Two great things about this shindig.
1) It's Chris's famous chili - this means that I stay out of the kitchen and let him work his magic. it's beautiful
2) We request everyone bring a 6-pack to share. And while in no way do I mean for it to become a "stock chris and tiffany's refrigerator" party, it is a brilliant idea when it comes to having a variety of beer to choose from and not having the pressure of picking them out. again, beautiful.
On Saturday, I will have it coming to me however, as we are going to a neighborhood dinner party - in which we are responsible for dessert. Argh - why does it always seem like a good idea to offer to make something but when it actually comes time to executing, panic ensues? If I had my choice, I would bring a gallon of cookie dough ice cream and call it good. Fall-ish Dessert ideas? hmm.
Still no word on my sister. Tomorrow is the 2-week mark since the bone marrow testing, so we shall see. Praying like crazy and hoping for positive results. More to come...
