Welcome to our family, welcome to our blog. We are going to try and keep this current for those of you reading from afar (hey mom claire!) But we make no promises. And really, people don't want constant blog updates until there are kids. So in about 5 years this blog will really start going.
Please enjoy our sporadic posts on life as a married couple

Big Step #3: I made our very own Chex mix. I realized I could save money by making my own snack mix. And we are munchers, so we need snacky food. I can also control how much salt goes in and stuff, so it can be a bit (maybe ) healthier! Yesterday I tried Barbecue Chex Mix (go to www.chex.com for tons of mix recipes). I put a little too much BBQ sauce in it, so it was a little mushy, but hubby still loved it and gave me a big hug. Next week (or the week after, depending on how quickly we got through it), I'm going to try Italian Chex mix! The only bummer is that the directions are for the microwave, and I would much rather do it in the oven, but I could not really figure out how to make it different. Anyways, that's the last little "step" for today!
I love the Lord, my (fire)man, coffee & wine! We have two precious cats and one adorable pup. I bake, sew, crochet, & love being creative in any way.
