There’s one specific request I told J about before we got married.


I wanted a garden to grow a few veggies when we got our first place.


Today my husband made this wish come true. We planted two lettuce plants, two tomato plants, two green pepper plants, one watermelon plant, and a blueberry bush.

I’m not sure how well these guys will fare, but we’re going to give them lots of TLC and hope for the best!


I also found my favorite childhood flowers at the shop where we bought our plants. They’re apparently called Cock-A-Doodle-Doos. I always chose these as “my” flower when my mom and dad bought their annuals to plant each spring. I don’t know why, but they make me smile!


I attempted a run this evening after grocery shopping. The plan was 5 sets of run 3 minutes, walk 2 minutes. I got through the first set and told myself, “This is stupid!” when a burning sensation began in my injured/hopefully almost healed foot. I stopped running right then and walked home.

Patience would be a great quality to have right now. I just want to run so bad!


I couldn’t get the idea of a hamburgera real, not-Japanese style burgerout of my head all day. I practically begged Jeremy to have burgers for dinner tonight. This is pretty unusual for me. It tasted so good.


I only ate about half of this salad and was standing up to toss the rest when J shocked me by saying he’d try it. Um, okay!


Ten minutes of talking to the salad, begging it to taste delicious, and moving the fork around the bowl to find “some of the orange stuff” later, he decided salad was definitely still not for him.

I wish I would have recorded this conversation. I was laughing so hard at him.


After dinner I wanted a little something sweet. I thought up this “milkshake” recipe a few days ago and it tasted so good then that I had it again tonight.


  • 2 frozen bananas
  • 1/2 cup of milk
  • 2 tsp. cocoa powder
  • 1-2 tbsp. peanut butter
  • 1 tsp. ground flaxseed

Throw two frozen bananas in your blender (this works best if you chop each banana into two pieces before hand). Let your blender do it’s thing until the bananas are broken up. Add milk. Blend again until a “milkshake” mixture begins to form. Dump cocoa powder, flaxseed, and peanut butter in. Blend until well mixed. Pour into a glass and enjoy!

So delicious!!!
