4 years?

>> Thursday, August 11, 2011

Yes, 4 years of marriage today! I am so lucky and blessed to be married to my best friend and such a wonderful man. He truly compliments me in every way. Things have not always been easy, but we make a great team.

We spent the day today having a picnic on the lake and walking trails, we then stopped at a local bakery and picked up some yummy sweets for tonight's dessert and we are now heading off to dinner.

I love you hubs! Thank you for making everyday with you special. I am looking forward to many more years of memories and love.


Newness here and there...

Since I am notorious for not taking snapshots of new projects and happenings in my life, I figured I would post a few photos that I actually remembered to take and share with you guys!

This is right above my stove. I wanted something to fill in the empty space since I don't have a backsplash in the kitchen and I felt that the plates added some cuteness and pizzaz to the otherwise boring space above the stove.

I made this yummy meal Sunday afternoon! It consists of Edamame, baby portobellos, chicken and ramen noodles. Instead of using the "msg laden packet" that accompanies the ramen noodles I made my own soup base. I used fresh garlic and onion, a cup of water and a cup of chicken broth, cumin powder, sesame oil and soy sauce. It was so good!

This is my crazy cucumber! All of my cucumbers are growing such odd shapes, but they taste amazing. I am really happy with our garden this year. So far I have had several cucumbers, tons of cherry tomatoes and lots of banana peppers!
