Fish Tacos

The first time I heard about fish tacos was the summer of 2003 and since I wasn’t a big fan of fish (of any kind) I wasn’t chopping at the bit to give it a try. That was until the moment I stepped into a little place called Rubio’s! I was living in San DiegoContinue reading “Fish Tacos”

Farm Life……..Coming Soon

So we totally did a thing. WE BOUGHT A FARM!!!!! Yeah, we did! I still laugh when I tell people. Partly because I’m stupid excited and partly because I’m in shock. This is not a thing I ever saw myself doing. But, goodness, don’t you love when God knows better than us. Now, this isn’tContinue reading “Farm Life……..Coming Soon”

Easy and Delicious Chocolate Crinkle Cookies

Every Christmas I put together Cookie Boxes for our teachers and my coworkers. Delicious treats, wrapped in a simple box, tied with a beautiful satin ribbon. They make the sweetest gift!

We were scheduled to spend this Thanksgiving out in the country and I was so excited.

I’m so thankful I live in a world where there are Octobers………

I don’t ever remember a time when I didn’t look forward to October. Even as a little girl, I anticipated the season of the leaves falling and blanketing the grass, counting down the days till my birthday, and of course that one night me and my friends would dress up in handmade costumes (right outContinue reading “I’m so thankful I live in a world where there are Octobers………”

Low Carb Taco-Stuffed Bell Peppers

Fall Fashion Favorites

Let me start by saying that I am in no way a Fashion Blogger. I LOVE to shop, but a stylist, I am not. I leave that to my many fashion blogger friends whom I adore and gain inspiration from. However, when you find a good thing, or several, you want to share! That’s whatContinue reading “Fall Fashion Favorites”

Cinnamon Pumpkin Cookies with Cream Cheese Frosting

If you bake it they will come. Along with their laundry, grocery list, and homework.
