Brag box: Featured recipe on Somewhat Simple!

We, here, at Team Willi aren't much for horn-tooting—but as a modest little blog—we'll gladly take all the love + attention we can get! 

One of of my daily blog reads/host of my all-time fave link party, Somewhat Simple, has graciously featured my recipe for slow cooker salsa chicken. I am beyond honored-- and excited to share more recipes soon!

Click Here to check us out-- it's the first recipe listed in the "Main Dishes" section. Thanks to Stephanie over at Somewhat Simple for totally making my week!

Crazy little thing called graduation

Long, protracted update posts aren't really my cuppa tea, so I'll get you all up to speed in a much more efficient way-- with photos {duh}. Last week, our left coast family came into town to celebrate the mister's graduation from law school. Here are some of the highlights:

Philly weekend:
City of brotherly...

Valley Forge:
Yeah... we're corny like that

Strike a pose

Center City:

"It's the eye of the tiger..."

Whiskey King. hands down, best burger ever. Thank you, Jose Garces!

oh, and short rib fries, what the whattt.

Back home {womp}
Kisses for Mama Willi

Great Falls

DC tourism at its best...
Moms and grandma

Mount Vernon: George Washington's tree... the one that wasn't chopped down.

O's v. Yanks...
like father:

like son:


 Yay, graduate!

Don't worry, the gown was zipped up for the ceremony

So ends our week. And now I'm exhausted. 

I've finally realized the only downside to having my awesome camera... I'm never in any photos because other people can't figure it out. It's not that it's so fancy... it's just that it's not a point-and-shoot, which is what people are used to. I'm currently educating hubbo so I can start popping up in my life {imagine that}!

ETA: Lovely sister-in-law just reminded me she rocked some photos at the Phila "LOVE" sign. You definitely deserve your propers, J Willi. Thanks, boo :)

Family's in town... I'm officially off-the-grid! 

The mister's family is in from the west coast and we've been on-the-go since Friday. Here are just a few sneak peeks:

Stay tuned for way more details. So far it's been a crazy little week {and it's only Wednesday}!

Photo Friday {Weeks 17 & 18}

I'm feeling pretty lazy about this Photo Friday, so my apologies in advance. Here's my life in the past couple weeks, enjoy {I certainly have}!

I know, I know... I didn't follow the "rules," nor did I date and label. Just know I've been as snap-happy as ever and I take my camera EVERYWHERE. I'm even starting to see the world in rules of thirds {which is pretty dorky, but whatev}. I'll be back to the routine next week— until then, happy weekend to all!
