Hey! I promised I would share two tasty recipes.


#1: My favorite corn bread. It’s sweetened with maple syrup and honey. I make a batch (or two) of it a week for snacking or as a side dish to lunch/dinner.


#2: Tuscan chicken soup. This soup is made in the slow cooker with chicken thighs, white beans, roasted red pepper, rosemary, and other delicious ingredients. My favorite part of this soup is the super tender chicken meat.

Other things going on in my life:


My brother got me listening to “Wagon Wheel” and now I’m obsessed with it (as you can tell from the screen shot–I was listening to the song at 5:34 a.m….).


Felix continues to climb everything, Lily is still adorable, and Lola loves her fruits and veggies.


I made Jimmy’s brother a chocolate chip cookie cake because he helped me with a school project. Hopefully he forgives me for my terrible piping skills!


My dad and I went on a father-daughter date to Monterey Bay Fish Grotto on Friday. We shared a delicious appetizer of grilled tuna, salmon, and swordfish on top of a chili mayonnaise sauce.

The best part of our date wasn’t the amazing food, it was when my dad went to the bathroom and came back with like five paper towels stuffed in his pocket exclaiming that they were “so cool!” because they had fish on them. I love my dad.


I’m really lovin’ Galatians 6:9. I keep this picture hanging on my mirror as a daily reminder to never give up!


I hope everyone is having a good weekend!


No more

No more of my life in 30 days. I am almost relieved it is done but at the same time I am a little sad!

I have a few random thoughts/questions for today:

-Can you believe it is already January 17th, 2011?

-Do you celebrate MLK day in any way?

-Do you have today off?

-What brand of coffee do you brew at your home?


, YeahI know the last one was a little random but I was thinking about coffee!!

In my house we drink:

Starbucks Breakfast Blend


Dunkin’ Donuts Turbo


Little packets of Arbuckles flavored coffee (My personal fav!)

Yesterday turned out to be a fun day! Ice skating was awesome and not as full as I thought it would be. I brought my camera, but not on the ice because I thought I would fall right on it!! Here are some pictures though 🙂

On our way, listening to music. Susan a lover of music, would be so proud!! (She makes the best mixes!)

Way to look dad! He is NOTORIOUS for not looking. I may have to make a post about him not looking.

Say hello to Chester, Hannah’s hamster who turned 1 years old yesterday. She had a birthday party and even bought him gifts such as a leash (yes, I am serious) and apple sticks (yes, I wanted to eat apple sticks)

There is Chester on his leash! Hannah made him a hoodie too:

Don’t worry, Lola wasn’t left out of the fun 😉 Jim and I walked her and she needed to be warm..

What better way to keep your pit bull warm than a dog vest?!

I made some soup. . .

Butternut squash soup… that I didn’t want my dad to touch.. because it wasn’t done. Sometimes he ignore post it notes… so I used 5 post it notes !

Bible Verse of the day:

Do not be overawed when a man grows rich, when the splendor of his house increases; for he will take nothing with him when he dies, his splendor will not descend with him. Psalm 49:16-17

Here is a little poll for you

Have a great day 🙂
