    That granite pizza stone is super clever! You can also cook pizza directly on the grill grates — that’s our favorite way of making it. We cook the dough first, add toppings, and then put it back on the grill just long enough to warm everything. Love that grilled flavor!

    Awwwman he doesn’t get to see the dress so why do you get to see the tux? LOL Is it bad that when scrolling down all I noticed on the boys were their toe gaps? Yes, I am odd like that. πŸ˜› Congrats on picking the cater.

    It is so nice to see occasionally see your boyfriend or husband dressed up. Mine usually wears jeans and t-shirts/sweaters so I love opportunities that makes him bring out a tie! Tuxes are even better!

    So you have a twin brother and you get cookie cake for your birthday. Are you sure you’re not my sister-in-law? (I’m married to her twin brother.)

    It’s nice to see Josh’s girlfriend. He went to Ca and she went to Chicago I think? I can’t remember. But I was wondering what had happened to the two of them!

    Dang…cookie cakes and twins must be a thing! My husband is an identical twin, and they always got their own cookie cakes on their birthday! Funny. They even had them last year for their 30th birthday…yum…
