Super Bowl Preparations!

If your hubby is anything like mine, there is only one thing on the mind....SUPERBOWL.
Kyle has declared his bottom to be in his new chair for the afternoon.
I like football but I don't really care that much :/
I do get excited for the excuse to make some really tasty snacks---here are some recipes that get my mouth watering! (Note: these are not all gluten or dairy free)





--I have made these several times and they are delicious!







And here's a little something for me :) I can't help it, I love mangos and I love margaritas!


While I'm searching for the best of the best for the Superbowl, the pups decided it was much to cold for them to go outside and play so they are being super cute big lazys--- 









Have a great Super Bowl Sunday! (P.S- Go Broncos)

Meet Roxy!!

I'm so excited to introduce the newest member of our family---Roxy!
We got Roxy from the Tulsa Animal Welfare Shelter and she is estimated at being 3 months old. They also guessed at her breed being some sort of pitt terrier mix. I think she looks like she has some pitt, lab, and maybe some sort of shepherd but we really have no idea! Gunny and Roxy are already best friends and have played pretty much every second since we brought her home.




I will keep you updated on our adventures---I can already tell there will be many!

Top Ten of 2013

Happy New Years Eve, pretty people!  What a freakin' fantastic year 2013 was.  I'd be scared if I were you, 2014--you have a lot to live up to!

I had a lot of really wonderful moments this year I'll definitely remember for years to come.  
But, for your sake, here are my top ten:

TOP TEN OF 2013:

1. GETTING MARRIED. Of course.  I mean, the way Daniel looked at me as I was walking down the aisle is a memory I will hold onto fiercely for the rest of my days.

2. OUR FIRST TRIP.  Just the two of us.  Our honeymoon was wonderful and memorable, for sure.  The most euphoric hike followed by finding out we were robbed on the first day made this one a trip for the books.

3. BACHELORETTE/BRIDAL SHOWER WEEKEND.  I don't mean to make this all about wedding stuff, but these girls traveled from all over to be here for two days I'll seriously treasure in my heart forever.  I have THE BEST friends, no matter how far away we've moved from each other.

4.  FINDING OUR SMALL GROUP.  Oh man, our little Wednesday night Bible study crew has turned into the biggest blessing in the friendship department.  We LOVE these couples and their hearts.

5.  DANIEL'S SURPRISE PARTY.  I finally kept a gift a secret until his actual birthday, and it was SO MUCH FUN.

6.  THE PURE CHARITY CHALLENGE.  We learned SO MUCH and overall felt SO supported, mostly by people we hardly knew! What a sweet time of community, and our budget wedding turned out to be everything we had dreamed!

7. POESY.  Adding another pup to our little family was so worth it.  She has the weirdest personality and fits in perfectly!

8. COACHING MY GIRLS.  I LOVE coaching soccer, but even more than that, I love my sweet, snarky little ladies.

9.  MOVING INTO OUR HOUSE.  Even though I lived there alone for five months--it was still so exciting!

10.  GOVERNMENT SHUTDOWN. Ha.  What a MEMORY.  It'll become even funnier as time goes on, I'm sure.

Goodbye, 2013.  You've been SO SO good to me.
