“Quesadilla,” Quesadilla

Happy Presidents Day!

Working in education, I had the privilege of having the day off! This meant spending the morning with J-yay! We had breakfast together (rare opportunity), went grocery shopping and worked on wedding stuff.

We can’t believe it, but our wedding is a little over 2 months away-eek!

One of the things still on our wedding to-do list was creating a “must play” and “do not play” list for our DJ, and friend, JM.

We had a good time putting together our list today, creating a good mix of our favorite music. This was actually a harder task than we expected, having to consider if it is “dance-able,” if people will want to dance to it, as well as put together our first dance song, father/daughter dance song, mother/son dance song, and what music will play when we enter the reception.

Bands we featured often? Queen, Electric Light Orchestra, Vampire Weekend, Matt & Kim, The Black Keys, M83, and Walk the Moon.

Small note: Walk the Moon played a mean show at our college before they made it big. One of the best concerts I have ever been to. One great song off of their album is titled “Quesadilla.”

Guess what is for dinner?

You’ll need:

  • olive oil
