Dinner last night was, well…. um… basically an experiment and a little throwing together. I was really happy with the results!

I was really excited because we found some taco seasoning! I love the flavorful punch of taco seasoning so I was excited to try something!

Last week we celebrated our 5 1/2 year wedding anniversary! It is amazing how fast the past 6 months flew by! It feels like we just celebrated our 5 year! Time is flying!

He just tells me, “Keep hanging on!” Are you kidding me? I love this adventure our marriage is and am so thankful for this wonderful man in my life!

Oh, we went to Applebees! It was pretty exciting because its one of the few “American” restaurants here and we haven’t been yet! We had a really yummy frozen lemonade!

  1. Sounds good, Alyssa! Hope to try this simple recipe for the two of us, at least! Also want to try your basic tuna salad recipe for next Monday at our daughter’s lunch for some visiting ministers. The tuna recipe sounds much like the mixture Daisy use to make for her great tuna sandwiches. Glad for the inspiring photos!
