Long Lasting Marriages

Still doing the 30 days of gratitude.

Today I am grateful for my grandparents!!!

They are such a blessing to me. They have been married 55 years! Such a inspiration and example of an amazing couple!! My grandmother has taught me to lean on God and to trust Him with all my heart!

Aren't they so cute!?!?!? :)


What are you grateful for?

What's for dinner???

If memory serves me correctly, I managed to fend for my "single" self without NEAR as much consternation over meal planning! I ate what I wanted, when I wanted and how I wanted with nary a complaint from my dinner guest aka moi.  But here lately, meal planning is becoming more of a chore!!!  Though I have stacks and stacks of cookbooks, paper clippings and recipe stashes I cannot get into a groove.  I find myself either cooking the same-o-thing or worse, ordering out.

Where or where can a girl find a month's worth of healthy, non-boring, quick-cooking, budget friendly meals????

My latest plan of attack is Pinterest!  I am continually amazed at how much free time virtual Moms & Wives seem to have.  Like seriously, how are you running kids here & there, decorating your house for each season, cooking every night and saving money????  But that's for another post :). 

For now, my plan is to rely upon those ladies to scour the web and lead me to a recipe treasure trove.  I just threw this:

Courtesy of Living Life of Riley!   Ms. Nikki has a ton of crockpot success stories (cause I wanna know that it actually turned out well) that I'll be relying upon in a quest to get my cooking groove back.  To account for the sugar, I plan to serve this with a healthy side that Ms. Giada whipped up this weekend:

Please share your go to Crock Winners!

30 Days of Gratitude

Are you all participating in the 30 days of gratitude?? I have been doing it on my personal blog.

Today (Day 13) I am grateful for my husband.


He loves God! He loves me!! He puts up with all my craziness and is always there for me when I need him. He treats me like a queen and I am honored to be able to treat him like a King!!


What are you grateful for?
