This salad is always a hit, even with people who dislike broccoli in general (my husband is one of those)!

This recipe is really awesome! I made it for our small group last week and pretty much everyone loved it. I don’t know if this is the best way, but I put it into a word document so people could download it. We’ll see! Next time I’ll have to take a picture of it….

My Hipstamatic…love it!

So I have totally been enjoying this app for the iphone…the Hipstamatic camera app. It has inspired me to use the camera on my iphone way more than I have before. I found out about this app through shimelle.com and she has some great inspiration on her site. Actually writing this post allowed me to back and review her ideas…I’m going to have to spend some time exploring her pages. Anyways, I started these two scrapbook pages back in May and I am just now getting to finish them. The husband is away on business so I don’t feel guilty spending the evening with my face glued to the laptop…well maybe I should be cleaning and organizing, but for now I scrapbook. I don’t know if I am thrilled with how I did these pages, but my philosophy of late has been to just go with it and not overthink my layouts.

How we travel

Last weekend we took a trip to Ohio to visit family and send off my cousin, Christen, into the Air Force as a nurse. She wasn’t sure what she wanted to do regarding her career after college so she decided the Air Force would make a good option. Her commitment will run for two years and she will have some unforgettable experiences to be sure.

Grant really branched out on this trip and had a lot of fun. He is really getting into an interactive state and it is fun to see him enjoy my family. The most fun he had on this trip was running through the grape arbor at my Grandparent’s house and getting to see horses in person for the first time…and actually touch them too! He was a bit timid at first, as Chris will tell you, but he just kept wanting to go back for more.

Another part of the trip was seeing the stone house across from my Aunt’s farmhouse. That is what I need to scrap next. I need to get faster with the scrapbooking process. I am just still figuring out my style. I’ll get there eventually!
