I'll Love You Forever! Aaahhh...doesn't that just sound great?! It does to me. That is what my date was all about. Joseph and I celebrated our 6th anniversary (wahoo!) at the beginning of the month and I wanted to make it extra special. He is truly the best thing in my life and with how crazy our lives are right now, I really wanted him to know how amazing I think he is.
How did I do that? Well, let's just say with 3 kids our budget...
Who doesn't just love Thanksgiving? All of that yummy food...eating until you want to burst...pulling out those pregnant stretchy pants just like Joey did on that "Friends" episode - just so you can eat that much more. Lol.

Ever since I have been married, me and the rest of the women...
We all know that with the holidays comes stress from trying to make everything perfect. Okay, maybe that is just me? But I really love to have everything come together just right so I will stress myself out about having everything perfect. Last year I changed everything about how I approached the holidays. I made some serious decisions that started with our Thanksgiving feast. I realized that our holiday traveling really did me in - so that was cut. I realized that being...

White Chicken Chili and Pumpkin Passion Dessert
When I think about Halloween and food. I really think about comfort food. It's getting cold outside and fall has begun. Now that I have children to take out trick-or-treating, I tend to lean more toward recipes that are simple, somewhat healthy and are still considered comfort food.
