It is a beautiful evening. The sun decided to come out after all (thank you, Lord!). Nice and comfortable weather. I love having the windows open for that fresh air - I can't wait to live in the country or on a quieter street so it will be peaceful, rather than hearing traffic and sirens all day! But I am thankful that I have a place to live. :)

My hubby and I will be headed to Maine on Thursday evening and I absolutely cannot wait. We are excited for this little vacation even if it is only for a few days. We have so many things planned, and hopefully we can get it all in. ;)

Tonight I randomly felt like making cookies, so I did. I had gotten some molasses a little bit ago and decided to go with Giant Ginger Cookies.

And we are having salad with grilled chicken tonight. Mm, I am really in the mood for a good, fresh salad with  chicken! Well I need to go finish dinner... enjoy your evening!

Sorry for the few days of not writing...

My dear husband caught a cold a few days ago and passed it on to me... or at least I feel like I'm getting it. My throat has been feeling scratchy and I have been sort of "blah".

It's a rainy evening, and I am loving it. Today has been spent working around the house at a leisurely pace and I am glad it gets to end with a nice romantic, rainy evening with my hubby. He's bring back supplies to start our supper, which I thought with tonight being kinda icky out we should make a soup. So I'm making French Onion Soup (my first time) and we are going to chow on that  and watch a movie. Sounds great, right? I opened the windows for the fresh smelling air. On some particular days, I just love rain.

Buffalo Chicken Sandwich with Blue Cheese Slaw on the Food Network

Looking for a new recipe to try? I am a huge fan of Food Network, and 9 times out of 10 I am watching their channel on TV. Before we were married, we were watching Food Network one day and were dying with envy as we watched the guy make these buffalo chicken sandwiches. Kyle is a rather obsessed with anything buffalo, so he asked me if we could try to make them sometime. Back when we were engaged I would make trips up to Maine for the weekend, and vise-versa. So one weekend we tried them... of course it is always so much more fun cooking together. They came out so very good!

Tonight we are having our big family over for dinner. In our little, tiny apartment... where there's not much space for everybody, but we have wanted to have people over for a while. And after asking Kyle 10 times what I should make for dinner, he remembered the buffalo chicken sandwiches! So here's the recipe - you've GOT to try it. So good! And if you don't want to bread your own chicken, just buy it frozen. Or if you don't even like the spicy buffalo chicken, leave it without the sauce. But don't forget the Blue Cheese slaw! The flavors from the chicken and the slaw marry together and have amazing flavor. I'm telling you, it will be worth trying. ;D And a good way to keep it from getting messy is using waxed paper to wrap your sandwich up in, kind of like Red Robin. Okay, time to go.

Blogging on my phone

Wow, I never really even thought I would ever use my phone to blog, but I wanted to try it! This could be handy, especially when I have something to share and don't want to forget it. Lol.

I'm out working with Kyle, basically just keeping him company in the car. It's going to be a late night. He worked today, came home for a couple hours, then went back at 7 and picked me up on the way to go on this late night run. We are somewhere out western MA.

By the time we get home I will be tired... And maybe cranky. ;)

I'm getting this photo printed to put in the house... it's by my sister who has a photography blog called, Life Through The Lens. It's to the right listed under blogs I follow.

Beaded Bracelets

So I went to Michaels yesterday looking for Polymer Clay to start making my own jewelry. I could not find it though, so I decided to try Crystazzi pearls and make a few bracelets to see  where it would lead, if I liked doing it, if they even could turn out somewhat pretty. And here was the result:

I liked the result! And I am actually probably just going to wear these myself. I already have a few opinions on them and they were all good. So... I will try the Polymer Clay next time and it will be so much more of a personalized item. I've been doing a lot of researching and have found a lot of sites that I like. It might be worth trying to sell eventually. One of my favorite sites I came across today was on madeit.com.au. It's like Etsy, but Australian. Her company is called Little Viking Girl and her stuff is SO cute. Click here to see her items.

I really need to go get some things done. Until later,

There must be a problem with blogger, because it will not save my HTML for my background! Two days in a row. C'mon blogger, let's get back to normal! Ugh. The little things in life...

Excuse my blog background. I have been having trouble with it today and it won't let me save anything... a pretty one will be up soon! Hopefully...


Just trying out my new signature, and it works! Love it. :)


It's August. I was married a little over two months ago! Seems like I have been married longer now and so much has happened, yet it's only been two months. I can only imagine what the next few years of my life is going to be like as I get used to being married and getting settled into our "life" together. We aren't really settled here, and I know there will be a lot of new things ahead, so I am fully prepared. :)

There isn't too much new here. I didn't have my computer working for over a week, so that was a little bummer, especially since Kyle needed it to start his Law Enforcement Pre-Service classes... the day he went to start them, the power cord completely went. Figures.

I have done a lot of work on my house recently. I keep telling people there will be pictures posted soon, but there is one more project I need to work on before I am ready to post pictures of my new painted livingroom and decorations!

We will be taking a few days for a vacation to head up to Maine on the 19th-21st of this month. We are both so excited and can't wait to get back to Kyle's home state! It will be a good break for him especially... he really needs one. :-/
