Day of L.O.V.E.

Happy Valentine's Day Friends! 

I hope you all have a great day and it is full of LOVE :) 

I did a little DIY craft this year I found on pinterest (of course) ! The tree is made up of  lyrics from the song Jon chose for our first dance at our wedding, "Someone like you" by Van Morrison. I'm working on a gallery wall in our hallway of wedding pictures, honeymoon pictures and some of our engagement pictures and I think this will be a perfect addition.

I LOVE IT!! :)

Did you make a valentine's day craft?

And guess what??!! Jon got us tickets to see my favorite musical, WICKED!! He hasn't seen it yet, but he is in for a real treat!! He pretty much knows all the songs already because I'm always listening to it when I get ready in the morning. Is it April 23rd yet?!

Mama's Enchiladas!

We didn't have any leftovers the other night when I made this for my husband for the first time! My mom made this recipe up when my sister and I were younger and since tweaked it a little. Try it out with a little side salad and let me know what you think!


- 6 whole wheat tortillas
- 1 can refried beans (I use the fat free kind and it tastes just as good)
- 1 can of tomato sauce
- 3 tbsp. of mild picante sauce (I use about 4 tablespoons)
- 4 oz. (1/2 package) Mexican blend cheese
- Pam


Spray 7X11 casserole dish with Pam. Lay out tortillas and spoon beans into them until evenly distributed. Roll them and place seam side down, side by side in dish. Mix tomato sauce and Picante sauce in a separate bowl and pour over top. Sprinkle cheese over top.
Bake at 325 degrees for 30 min.

Working Girl

Whew! What a busy month! Some of you may know I started my job January 7th and I love it! I am not taking anything for granted after the year I have had and I feel truly blessed where God has lead me. I believe this job was waiting for me!

4:30AM sure does come early! The adjustment hasn't been too bad, well considering I'm in bed by 8:30 and the two cups of coffee in the morning aren't a bad idea. I catch the train at 6AM to get to work by 7:15 and I'm off at 4, but it takes me about an hour and a half to get home. I am known to fall asleep on the train. Yep, I am that girl whose head is bobbing up and down.

Now I need to figure out how to fit working out, cooking dinner and continue doing the things I love with this new schedule! How do people do it, especially those with kids?! It might take some time to get used to, but I couldn't be happier!

As you can see I have taken a break from blogging, but it's because I feel as if my life has taken a turn since I first started. I started blogging in hopes of finding some inspirational bloggers and I have surly succeeded and also to provide me an outlet as I was going through a really tough time this past year. You can read more about it here if you are new to my blog. :) I will continue to share my thrifty finds, recipes, inspirational quotes and some exciting adventures, but I may not get to blog every day like I would hope to do. I have missed many of the wonderful girls I have met through this blogging journey and I appreciate all the emails and texts I have received from my new friends. I can't wait to see what God has in store for me!

Hope y'all have a wonderful week!
