Banana Bread and Breathing

Breathing is such a crazy concept if you stop to think about it. Without it we wouldn’t be alive but I am sure most of us go about day-to-day not even thinking about breathing. As I am sitting here typing this I am making myself think about it and now I feel like my pattern is…

shrimp and zucchini stir-fry

I am happy to report that “clean out the fridge week” is OVER! Whew! I refuse to let food go to waste and I felt like we were due for a clean sweep but things were getting a little scarce by Saturday! We went to an event called Rock N Ribs Saturday afternoon and let…

A Southern Sunday

What an awesome weekend we had! Danny and I had a ball all weekend long (I swear we are just a couple of kids). On Friday night we went out for Mexican with some friends from out of town and I ate my weight in chips and salsa. If you ever find yourself in Springfield,…
