July Recipes (& update)

As always, summer is flying by! So fast, in fact, we didn’t manage to try any new recipes in June. But, we weren’t going to let that happen for July! Chris used a bread pan he received as a gift that is specially made to make sandwich bread. He found a delicious recipe but forgot to put the top on during the backing. Oops! It still tasted delicious! 

For a game night with friends, we made Muddy Buddies. Chris had never made it before, and Jessica had only tried making once as a child. It doesn’t quite look right but still tastes so yummy! 


In addition to making a few new recipes, Chris finished his first class back to college. He’s looking forward to fall semester but is glad he has a few weeks off before it all starts. 

Jessica took on summer school this year. It definitely was a challenge, but she’s glad she took it on this year. She is also glad to have a few weeks off before the 2017-2018 school year starts. She’ll have a new challenge this year as she changes schools and will begin teaching science in addition to math. Jessica is excited for all the new adventures to come. 

We have a big day planned for tomorrow, and we can’t to share all about it later this week. 


**We are hoping to adopt a newborn. If you or someone you know has decided to place a child for adoption, learn more about us here.**

Day 46: My Person

My Person. This makes us think of Meredith and Christina on Grey’s Anatomy. We’d pick each other! 🙂 Everyone needs that one person who will let you know you are talking crazy, who you can let loose with and know you won’t be judged, who will push you to be the best version of yourself. We spent our 14th Valentine’s Day together yesterday. It was one of the best we ever had just hanging out together. We are looking forward to many more.
