Must See Monday!
So, our business......
Sorry I was M.I.A. last week. We had a lot of "business" stuff to take care of and we had some friends in town most of the week. I promise to post more about "business" later, but for now would like to share with you a delish recipe that we make at least once a week. First, let me preface with saying that I don't cook. And I don't mean that humbly. When I say I don't cook, I mean I don't cook. Seriously. I am dead serious when I say I've only cooked dinner about 5 times. And we've been married 7 years this August! I know how lucky I am. But, it works out good and God just really knew how to place with me with my soul mate because JT loves to cook. Not only does he love to cook, but cooking loves him. He is The.Best.Cook. Period. I'm not just saying that because he's my hubby and he's cooked me dinner every night for the past 6.5 years. No, I mean our guest this past week told him he should have a show on Food Network. Yes, lucky I am. I totally know where he gets it from too. JT's mom has made some of the tastiest foods to ever enter my mouth.
Just wanted to drop in and say happy Monday!! I may not be blogging a whole lot this week and wanted to let you know. I've got 2 sick kidos....AGAIN. Back to the doctor today. We're having company this Wednesday. And, we're both super busy with some other things going on in life right now that have deadlines. I hope you'll understand! I'll be back as soon as possible and I've got lots to blog about, including a delish recipe that we make often at our house!!!
One of my all time favorite books is 7 Habits of Highly Effective People by Stephen Covey. I love, love, love this book! I think everyone should be required to read this book when reaching adulthood! And, I think it should simply be titled "How You Should Live Your Life". Anyway, I like to read it every few years because it is SO stinkin good! (does that make me a nerd?!) Anyway, I have been thinking about reading it again because the last time I read it was when I was pregnant with my son which is now 2.5! I knew that with the business we're trying to build I could use the lessons in this book right now. Picking just one quote from this man was so hard this morning. (Hmmmm, perhaps I'll create a day in which we only talk about quotes from 7 Habits....HA!) But, I'm going to have to go with the following. Why did I choose the quote above for today? Well, it just really jumped out at me. I guess it really hit close to home this morning because we (JT and I) are learning all about how we need to change to fit our new routine around here considering he and I are going to be partners in more ways than one. It's hard to not feel like every day of the week is a weekend now! But, I'm so proud of him and us and so far we're doing pretty good.
This post is long overdue. Last weekend, we traveled to Memphis, TN to visit a long time friend of mine. We had The. Best. Time......EVER! Don't you really love those nights that you have so much fun that for weeks you can exchange "inside jokes" with the people you hung out with and it still be flippin hilarious! Well, this was one of those kind of nights. We met some new, great friends and saw some old ones. I won't mention that the highlight of my trip was the fact that my 5 month old daughter slept from 7:30 pm until 1:45 am without even stirring! So I did mention it but believe me, that's something to get excited about in our family. I must mention that the reason we went on this trip was to attend a party. Not the one that you see in the pictures below. That's the party after the party. The main party was for my friend's baby who was turning one. He is an absolute doll! Aren't the first birthday parties always more for the adults anyway? Well, as you can see, this party sure showed that to be ture. We partied well into the night. We had good food and great wine and got to experience fun and fellowship with some wonderful people.
