And The Winner Is......



Watermelon was the Summer fave. I found a recipe I haven't made for a long time and thought I would share it with those Watermelon lovers!


WATERMELON ICE
- 6 tablespoons sugar
- 4 lime leaves (kaffir leaves) (I have no idea what these leaves are but I add lime juice to taste instead. Just go by your taste-buds)
- 1/2 cup water
- 1 1/2 pounds seedless watermelon

* In a sauce pan, over medium-low heat, add water, sugar and lime leaves. Heat until sugar dissolves and remove from heat; pour in a large bowl and allow to cool.
* Remove watermelon rinds and place water melon chunks into a food processor and pulse until it becomes slushy. Add watermelon slush to the sugar mixture.
* Chill 4 hours. Strain and freeze until firm.
* Thaw in the refrigerator for 1/2-hour before serving.

Adulthood Slapped Me In The Face

“Humor helps us to think out of the box. The average child laughs about 400 times per day, the average adult laughs only 15 times per day. What happened to the other 385 laughs?” -- Unknown Author

Why does being an adult have to be so hard and so amazing all at the same time? Why do we need to have so much responsibility? When did monsters under the bed turn into bills in the mailbox? When did dreaming about my dream house turn into a split level in the ghetto?

Why does 'living the dream' have to be so hard?

I will never have the answers but I can gain insight and growth from these trials. Being an adult is hard because if it was easy you would take everything for granted. Responsibility is like a gold medal you earn. The more responsibility the more trials you have conquered. I still have monsters under my bed...they are called dust bunnies and the occasional trespassing spider. The bills in the mailbox can be just as scary as the worst monster I ever had under my bed as a child. My dream house will come with time. It is just going to take hard work and patience.

Even thought it doesn't feel like it sometimes, I am LIVING THE DREAM. I have the best husband in the whole world. He beats all the others HANDS DOWN. He is my best friend and my lover and that is the best combination ever. I have in-laws that I do not deserve and parents I could never replace. My grandma is one of the closest people in my life. She and my grandpa are the best examples. I have a small house that we can call home and you can feel the love the second you walk through the door. It may not look like anything special but it is to us. I have friends that have gone through one of the hardest times of my life with (nursing school).



I am living the dream....and I love it.

Organic Groceries

Okay guys I need your help. What whole wheat, high fiber, organic, non-hormonal, foods do you purchase that you love? I am going to start introducing carbs back into my diet slowly but I want to do it right. I also want to implement organic non-hormonal dairy. Let me know if you have anything you would suggest. If you find a link or blog send me that too!

Thanks guys! Wish me luck!
