Favorite Dinner Guest. Ever!

My friend Nate came into town this past weekend for an impromptu visit. I met Nate three years ago when he came to St. Louis to go to orthodontic school, and we became fast friends. Nate graduated school last December and moved shortly thereafter to Tucson, Arizona, where he got a job. I was very sad to see such a dear friend leave, but I'm just grateful for modern technology that allows us to keep in touch.

So imagine my surprise when Nate called Friday afternoon saying that he was coming into town for the holiday weekend. Nate came over for dinner last night – one of our favorite past times from when he used to live here. We had homemade hamburgers for dinner with barbecued baked beans cantaloupe, strawberries and vegetables. For dessert we had one of our staple "Nate Bartschi" desserts from when Nate would have dinner with us. My mom made brownies and we had sundaes with Blue Bunny Peanut Butter Brownie Sensation ice cream (my favorite!) and my mom's homemade hot fudge sauce. SO good!

After dinner I showed him some of my latest projects, and he showed me pictures on his laptop from all of the traveling he's done this year. Nate's visit didn't last long enough, but it was a nice little treat since I wasn't expecting to see him for quite a while. I'll take what I can get and be happy with it.

An evening with Nate would be complete without a few pictures to document our time together.
Another surprise visitor popped over to say hello last night, too. It was Megan Knobloch – one of the sister missionaries that lived in our home for seven months while she was on her mission in St. Louis. She recently got married and was driving with her new husband to Philadelphia where they're going to be living. Boy, were we spoiled yesterday! I could get used to it!
