Well our overhaul is almost done, did you notice any changes? We sure do, but thats probably because we spent the whole week making them. Some of the things we worked on we smoothing the format and cleaning the layout which should result in a faster load time. There is also a new header at the top and social media buttons at the bottom of each post! Lastly we added a few other tabs: About Us, an FAQ and a photography section which we're still refining. We have a photo shoot scheduled with our good friends Nicole and Jesse, the former of whom is the mastermind behind the ever popular Nicole Chubb Photography to help bring out our pretty smiling faces.

Part of Eric’s new(ish) job is exhibiting at trade shows around the country, something he’s never had to do before so it’s been a new experience for both of us. He actually spent last week in Las Vegas “working” while Charisse stayed home and went to work, something that was not well received at the Petruno household. Eric was annoyed because he was in Vegas, working 10 hour days and not having much in the way of fun. Charisse was annoyed because Eric was in Vegas without her. When he got back, we stopped at the In-N-Out right next to the airport and Charisse got a great laugh out of watching him fall asleep midway through his burger. The next day (we slept through the morning) we talked about the blog and some of the things we’re going to change about it. After some deliberation we feel like the look doesn’t exactly match the feel and our photography has hit a virtual wall. We started this last year and we were really interested in pushing the fancy envelope. We saw ourselves as edgy ex-city people who needed a slick and polished blog. We found that we keep going back to homey feel good food with just a hint of the city. We also decided that we should have a picture of us in here somewhere, since it is a blog about us. As you can imagine it was quite the day (Eric got to order more photography stuff from Ebay and gets to take over the dining room table) and as we wrapped up we decided that we needed to fry something, a trait we’ve picked up from our friend Jen’s southern roots. Since Eric just finished a week eating crappy junk food the usual friable suspects were out of the question, so we decided to dig through the fridge and fry whatever came out, which happened to be green beans! Charisse dug out a recipe for a great dipping sauce and fired up the oil. The taste came out a lot like fried zucchini, but with green beans. The real highlight was the dipping sauce, a modified ranch dressing with just enough zing to make it exciting.

Here's a picture of Pat and Monica going to their high school prom:
Aren't they the sweetest thing? They were together since they were 15!
And here are some pictures of our meal tickets, Q and Finley:

Marley & Me. For anyone who hasn't seen it, the movie is all about a family with a crazy but loveable dog. Its very easy to laugh at for the most part especially if you've ever had a large dog with lots of energy. Why do we feel like we're living in this movie? Here are the most common phrases used this year:
- Don't chase the cat.
- Don't chase the other cat.
- Off, off, OFF!
- Whats for dinner?
- OFF THE BED!
- YOU CHEWED A HOLE IN THE BED!?! OUTSIDE!
