Catching Up

Hi all!  I know I left you guys hanging the other week.  We ended up having a lot happen and I really wasn't able to blog any.  Our date night went very well.  Our Indian food was awesome!  My hubbies grandma ended up passing away so we went back to Oklahoma where our family is.  On the way we stopped where we use to live and work to attend a reconciliation service.  It was amazing!  We were blessed to watch the congregation be reunited with 4 past pastors that didn't leave on good terms.  One being our lead pastor we worked under.  They washed their feet and loved on them.  I was overwhelmed with feelings of love as we sat back and just watched.  We even were reunited with some friends we haven't spoken to in at least 2 years.  God's reconciliation is so awesome!  The next day we headed down to Oklahoma.  We drove back Wednesday and my hubby had to leave Thursday morning to go on a church event for 4 days.  My nanny came and spend some time with me though.  That was nice.  We had fun relaxing, shopping, eating and watching movies!  :)  Sunday was crazy but good.  I there all by my lonesome. Well, I had some awesome leaders there to back me up.  Ok, they did everything! ;)  They are the best!  My hubby was still gone so I was in charge of Sunday morning children's services.  It went well.  God was in control.  Otherwise I would have been a mess.  Now my hubby is back! Yay! I missed him so much.  All the craziness is over with.  I'm ready to relax with my hubby again with our normal routines.  Well, I'm off to clean the house.  I hope everyone has an awesome day today!

Date Night!

Hey all!  I hope you are having a great Thursday so far!  I woke up to a very cold morning.
I thought these temps weren't suppose to start till November?!  :)

Well, the week has been awesome so far.  Found out we were blessed awesomely and only have to pay $25 for our dental work we had done.  $1,500 worth! God is awesome!  :)  Also we've been blessed in other ways for this weekend.  I'll let you in on that in another post later on this weekend. ;)  My nanny is coming to see me in a few weekends! So excited for that!  Oh and tonight is date night! Yes!!!  We may be going to this Indian restaurant we've been wanting to check out.  There is one by the same family a few hours south of us.  We've been to that one but not the one in our part of town.  I'm so excited.  We haven't had indian food in a long time.  It always reminds me of our good friends the Lynch's.  They introduced us the this amazing food.  We love and miss them so much!  Did I tell you though!? We get to see them this weekend! Woohoo! I better not say too much.  I won't have anything to post about later on. ;)  Well, I hope you guys enjoy this beautiful day!  It should be warmed up by noon.  Happy Thursday!!

Running Slow

Good morning!  Late morning. :)  I have no motivation today. I feel blah!  I'm sure everyone has those days huh?  Well, first off this morning I have to tell you about an awesome thing my friend made the other day!  We called them Homemade Oat Bars! :)

Don't they look so yummy!?  I have to give her props.  This was her first time at trying to make them.  I think she nailed it!  They tasted so great!  Here is the recipe if you guys want to try it. :)

Homemade Oat Bars

1/2 Cup Oats
1/2 Cup Rice Krispies
1/4 Cup Peanut Butter
1/4 Cup Almonds (run through processor)
1/4 Cup Walnuts (run through processor)
2 Tbsp Honey
1/4 Cup Craisins (or any kind of dried fruit)
2 Tbsp Milk (or milk substitute or water)
You can add granola too if you would like.

Mix it all up. Press in a baking pan with wax paper and set in fridge for about an hour.  Voila! So easy! :)

On to the other things.  I'm really running slow this morning.  As I mentioned above I have no motivation.  I've been like this since Tuesday.  I'm thinking it was the weather.  Tuesday was chilly and misty outside.  I really need to tackle the kitchen and get the apartment vacuumed.  Oh and exercise.  ;) I've been slacking on exercising really bad.  This week has been busy.  Still have stuff to do tonight and Saturday and then Sunday is church.  So Friday is our only free day that we will have.  It's starting a busy time in our lives!  Only this month though.  Hope everyone has a great day today!  It's beautiful outside here!  Enjoy it!

Pinterest Recipe Success!

Good evening!  Ok so I have to brag about my pinterest recipe success!  I wasn't sure of it but it turned out pretty good.  It's really simple too!  I wouldn't eat it this way all the time because of the brown sugar, but it's a good once in a while recipe.

Mmmmm good.
Here is the link to the recipe. Baked Garlic Brown Sugar Chicken

I used :
1 chicken breast split in half
2 Tbsp EVOO
2 garlic cloves
2 Tbsp brown sugar

Saute the garlic in EVOO then stir in brown sugar.  Pour over chicken.  Baked at 375 for 25 minutes. Simple! :) Enjoy!

Busy Day!

Good morning everyone!  I thought I would post a little bit this morning.  Nothing too interesting, but I wanted to keep posting so I don't fall off the wagon again. :)

For breakfast, my favorite cereal ever!!
Great Grains Cereal, Raisins Dates & Pecans.  Mmmmm good!  It's healthy for you and tastes good!  Go ahead, try it.  You'll see. :)

Today will be a busy day!  It's my cleaning day!  I've found the secret to a stress free weak.  Well, stress free concerning the apartment being clean. :)  I bust my but on Monday, deep cleaning everything and then the rest of the week I just maintain and clean up the little messes.  I tried the doing something everyday but that just didn't fly with me.  So after a little bit of quiet time with Jesus I'm going to get to work!

I hope you all are having a great Monday so far!
