Happy Birthday Handsome Husband!

Happy Birthday to YOU, Happy Birthday to YOU, You are the Most Handsome and sweet and funny and wonderful... And I loooooove YOU.  Yesterday was Mr. Ford's big day so we went out to breakfast, did a little shopping, hung out at Lake Eola and then out for a grubtastic dinner.  It was pretty wonderful spending the weekend together!  He is the best.

Here's to The Sillies

It's the week before finals here in Orlandi and that means EVERYONE.IS.FREAKING.OUT.  People are being less polite, more cranky, more self-centered and just generally horrible to be around.  In summation, this week at work has been a beast.

This week out of work has, on the other hand, been great.  The lesson?  Remove yourself from the situation if you can, take some deep breaths and grab a bear hug from someone that means it.  But if you can't... try to laugh at it and the people taking themselves super seriously.  Stupid stressy students, you just crack me up.

Here's to finding silly in the midst of someone else's "passion"...

Dinner Noms

Good Morning Hungry Friends,

Spring ball is officially over and you know what that means!  I have my husband back in time for home cooked dinners.  We have been having a ton o fun cooking together (minus one tiny sliced finger slip up) and I thought I would share some of our fav dishes with you.  I'll consider myself thanked :)

I have a super easy recipe for spinach macaroni and cheese balls to share with you this morning. I tweaked it like crazy as mine were non-dairy and whole wheat (i used rice milk, soy cheese and margarine, YUM...), but I would imagine these would blow your mind with real cheese and whatever pasta is on hand.  I also subbed in Italian bread crumbs for where the recipe calls for flour.  The leftovers have made a great second day work lunch too.  They were especially good with our homemade cherry limeade that didn't make the photo shoot  :)  Enjoy!

Second Anniversary Dinner

While we truly celebrated our wonderful second anniversary during a fun-filled trip to Disney World, we couldn't let the actual day of our anniversary pass without celebrating then too, even if it was on a Wednesday!  Isn't that the worst?  We decided to cook our own romantic anniversary dinner at The Melting Pot and had a blast doing so.  Having a month long marriage lovefest three years running really has been the best.

Nom Nom we LOVE to EAT

Mmmmm Raw Meat!

Thumbs Way Up

Someone knows me and loves me... antique hankys for our 2nd (cotton) anniversary

This might have been one of those "secretly a gift for both of us" gifts!  You're welcome :)

What would an anniversary dinner be without dessert?

I love this handsome man!

St. Pats (Yes, I'm that behind)

Happy St. Patrick's Day friends!

What's that you say?  St. Pat's was almost a month ago?  Oh... that.  Well, it might have taken me that long to download the pics from that camera to my computer.  Oh me oh my i just have too many cameras MWAHAHAHAHAHAH.  Yes, I love it.  Anyhow, speaking of cameras.  Those of you with nosey pit bulls will know how hard it was to arrive at this first photo because of all of the photos following it...

It was well worth the clicking :)

What?  I am just your snuggly baby!  Don't you love me??? YES TEENY, you are the sweetiest.

So besides looking good, drinking beer and being a loving family... we did have a lively St. Patricks day.  Did I mention that we have a Paddy's day tradition to make corned beef and cabbage and Irish minestrone every year on St. Pat's day?  I don't eat red meat so the veggie version evolved over years of salivating over the smell of his corned beef... it's my way of getting the best meal of the day without the meat!

Of course our St. Paddy's also included a key lime desert-off.  Unfortunately, Jonathon's key lime cheesecake bars beat out my key lime cool-whop pie.  I suppose that's only fair since he is actually the Irish one and all...  I would say we were both winners in the end because we were stuffed and had a blast stuffing ourselves!  Now on to SOMEONE's birthday in two little weeks :)

Pictures of Birds :)

Good Morning Spring Chickens,

Did you have a beautiful Easter? I hope so. Ours was very relaxing indeed.  Thankfully my hardworking honey got the day off but he has been working so much lately he really didn't want to do much (can you blame the man?).  So we had a very zen day... We went to church, out for a lovely brunch (belinis included) and took a stroll around beautiful Lake Eola where I got to practice my photog skillz.  Apparently from my review of the photos I took, I was really feeling the birds yesterday.  Enjoy!


It was a BEAUTIFUL spring day.  After our trip to the park, we sipped some lattes and then went home and watched Dial M for Murder while eating homemade chocolate covered strawberries that the Easter bunny left us, how thoughtful of him!  It was a pretty dreamy day.

Oh Hi, I'm very handsome when reading my kindle at Starbucks:
