Three Blessings I'm Grateful For Today...

1. My 20 minute phone call to my best friend MamaStephy! So grateful she had the time to pick up and shoot the breeze.  (someday I'll meet her 3kids) I think I laughed more in those 20 minutes than I did all day. I love & miss her so!

2. Enjoyed a scrumptious SmashBurger with my old childhood best friend Eidde! I feel like a kid again anytime we get together. I love it! Time surely flies by!! 25 years...WOW!!

3. My sweetheart that I'm blessed and lucky to start and end each day with. Coming home after work to find the whole kitchen clean & all the dishes washed. I love this man more than my heart can ever express.

Banana Boo Bread!

Sometimes I feel like my heart is going to burst at the seams.
I just love this man more than words can ever express or that my heart can never convey. I know you can barely see him because I cut him out so I wouldn't embarrass him too much.
I love that he made me homemade lasagna yesterday, while I decorated our home for Halloween. 
There's so much I want to say about Halloween, this month and how special it is to me. 
But for now I will post about the yummy deliciousness I have going on in my oven.
I love this simple banana bread recipe that I came across on  I've been baking this for the last year for my sweetheart and I'm always so glad that he likes it. I don't claim to be a baker in any way, shape or form,  so the fact that he likes it always makes my heart skip a beat.
And I also like this photo, too. I just want to remember how happy we are and the fun we always have together. He's my best friend. There's nothing I can really hide from him. I'm so lucky that I get to start and then my day with him by my side. I couldn't be any happier right now. Well, maybe I could....once the banana bread comes out of the oven. :)

The Hubs and I have become pretty big fans of the Food Network TV show, Chopped.  I love the show because I love to cook and I love the competition of such talent! (Same reason I enjoy Project Runway!) I would love to have the skill base of those talented chefs! I'm not gonna lie, I would LOOOOOVE the chance to attend culinary art school! I think it would be an amazing opportunity! Plus, I'd be able to cut an onion in a blink of an eye. :)
On my list of things to build my Chopped kitchen, I want these little beauties: 
RAMEKINS!!! It would be the perfect size for Levi & I! I would LOVE to make mini Stratas, pot pies and little bread puddings (sans Raisins, of course). We've got an array of larger baking sheets & pans, but these would be perfect for 2! 
Bed, Bath & Beyond, I think I'll be seeing you soon....there's some ramekins calling my name!!

Tonight, I came across this beautiful art piece. I just love it!! I want to own this piece, someday. (But for now, it's sold out) 
I think it captures the radiant beauty and divinity of Motherhood. In my heart of hearts, I look forward to the day I become a Mother. I can't wait til I hold my infant child sent straight from Heaven.  The more I fall deeper in love with my sweetheart, it makes me anticipate the next chapter in life. I'm so curious as to what our babies will look like. As much as I am NOT looking forward to middle of the night feedings, I am looking forward to the stillness that comes with a slumbering baby held close to my heart.  I can't wait to rock them gently and sing them to sleep. I'm anxious and nervous to experience that overwhelming love that comes upon holding them for the first time. I just can't wait! Someday, soon enough...

Happiness on a Monday!

Today, I felt uber cute (even though stupid cramps were kicking my trash). My  hair felt full and long! At least five women in the office complimented my hair asking what I did differently to it. If only they knew that it was actually day old hair! Ha! I think my hair always looks better the next day. 
I think I was feeling great because of the wonderful weekend I spent with my sweetheart. It was just so great to spend our down time relaxing and truly enjoying each other's company. I LOVED that!  
We were lucky to spend our Saturday evening at my ward (church congregation) annual luau! The Kalua pig was fantastic!! Plus I LOVED our outfits!!
I seriously loooooved my mu'umu'u!!  I felt so beautiful! I plan on buying another one or two more! 
Anyways, I had a spectacular weekend with my sweetheart! I always love spending every minute of my weekend with him.
