Loving October!


punkinWe’ve had an awesome October. We flew through Halloween 1-6 with ease (except 3) and stayed super busy. This past weekend was, as usual, amazing. We didn’t do anything particularly blog-worthy, but that’s what made it epic. We got things done around the apartment, hung some pictures up, organized dvds, unloaded boxes, cooked great food, napped, smiled. ๐Ÿ™‚ I What IS blog-worthy though, is I also met some more of SniperBen’s friends. They are all really great people who I hope to hang out with again soon. Kim and James are two of them and they hosted a really fun pumpkin carving party. Here are a few pics from that…stay tuned though! Halloween and trick or treating is right around the corner. ๐Ÿ™‚

Our first weekend cabin trip

So I have to say that this past weekend was exactly as it should be. Well, there are a few things I would have changed, but for the most part it was every thing that I could have imagined that a 30th birthday weekend cabin trip could’ve been.

Another amazing weekend, in the bank

Pre Fun Bowl dinnerJess and I whipped out another amazing meal. There was never any chance that it wasn’t going to happen. I mean, it was full of all that love and stuff she was talking about. Now that the meal is settled, the table is clean, and the shame of wearing a UGA shirt after that game has sunk in, it’s time to head out to Fun Bowl. Chase and I have been cooped up in the house all day while Jess manned the couch with her epic napping skills. It’s time for some good ol’ family fun. We’ll take some pics and update after all is said and done.

A belly full of love…

As I’m sure you’ll see in the upcoming months…my guy is a fantastic cook. There will be pics of deliciousness and recipes you’ll want to check out. Example: this morning we had homemade biscuits with sausage gravy – yummo! (And I helped!)

What I’ve noticed recently, however, is that everything we create in the kitchen is CRAZY good. All we had for lunch today was a deli meat sandwich and some pasta salad. Nothing fancy…but it was the best sandwich and pasta salad evah. My theory behind this is corny at best, but I promise you there has to be some validity behind it.

Theory 1: When we cook together, a little dash of our love falls into our meals. Our flirting in the kitchen and sparks between our eyes find their way into the food and make it the most delicious thing you’ve ever eaten. Think I’m crazy?? Don’t believe me? Cook something today with someone you are madly in love with. I promise you’ll end up with a belly full of love. <3

Road Trip to Camp Lejune, NC

So I’m posting about the NC trip a few weeks after we actually took it, but luckily this is a trip that will be impossible to forget! SniperBen got off work Friday and I was at the apt. waiting for him (and creating the most epic travel playlist you’ve ever heard.) We grabbed some delicioso Mexican food, stopped to fill up with gas and get some snackage, and we hit the road around 8:30 pm. We had a long drive ahead of us…but somehow time seemed to stop as we drove. The songs, the stories, the secrets, the feelings, the laughter, the tears, the singing, the honesty…they all helped take a regular ol’ road trip andย  create an experience and a memory that is impossible to describe.
