Day #3: Favorite Food

I'm not sure if I can pick just one food, so I'll break it up in to categories.

Appetizer: I LOVE chiles chips and salsa!

Meal: Honestly, I don't really have one. Right now I crave Mexican food ALL THE TIME, but that could be because I have Jon's kid growing inside of me. I love cooking new meals I've never tried before, especially anything out of "Taste of Home" or that I can make in my crock pot.

Dessert: Although truthfully anything chocolate does the trick, my absolute favorite is French Silk Pie! The best is from Perkins. I've made a few myself, but I haven't found the perfect recipe yet.

Snack: FRUIT!!! At the moment it's apples and grapes. Any kind of berries and pears are also fabulous!

Day #2: Favorite Holiday

I absolutely love Holidays! Holidays means being with family, eating lots of yummy food, and getting to decorate! Whats better than that?

My Favorite Holiday is....

The 4th of July!

I love the 4th of July! It's the perfect time to eat lots of fruit (especially fruit salads!) and spend time outdoors. The last few years it has been our tradition to go up to Estes Park and watch the fire works. That might be another reason that it is my favorite, I love being is Estes Park. We usually walk around the shops all afternoon, eat dinner some place yummy, and then head back to the lake to watch the fireworks! It's fabulous! And I love getting to celebrate being an American! :) Talking about it makes me so excited for this 4th of July!

Here are some of my favorite 4th of July memories:

30 Day Blogging Challenge

Happy Valentines Day!!!

So, I have decided to star the 30 day blogging challenge. There are 30 questions (one for each day) that I will be answering for the next month. It should be a blast! Feel free to join in with me! Todays subject: Introduction, recent picture, and 15 facts about yourself.

This picture was taken by my Sister-in-Law, Stephanie, heading in to my bachelorette party at PF Changs.

  1. I just married my best friend, Jon, September 4th and am LOVING married life!
  2. I have a very serious obsession with shoes. Shoe shopping is one of my favorite things to do. I have a tradition that I buy all my nieces and new pair or PINK shoes for their birthday every year!
  3. My favorite place to go for the day is Estes Park. I LOVE all the cute shops and being in the mountains and just really everything about it.
  4. I have 9 nieces and nephews, all of whom I adore!
  5. I recently have developed a passionate love for all kinds of Mexican Food!
  6. I work part time at American Eagle and love getting close at a discount! :)
  7. I probably eat at least one apple a day, not because I'm trying to keep the doctor away, but because I love them!
  8. I am a total wimp and if my husband isn't home when I'm going to bed, I have to leave the bathroom light on.
  9. I LOVE to bake, and my Sister-in-Law, Stephanie, is a FABULOUS cook, but when we are together, we can't even manage to make cookies. It's become a bit of a joke.
  10. Girls Nights with my sisters is one of my favorite things to do!
  11. I rewatch episodes of Reba, Gilmore Girls, and Grey's Anatomy that I have probably seen a 100 times. On the plus side, those are a few of the TV shows I watch that my husband can stand.
  12. I would LOVE to have another wedding, not to find a new groom, (I'll keep Jon) but because I had so much fun dancing the night away with my husband, family and friends at my wedding.
  13. I LOVE seeing movies at the theater. They are ridiculously expensive (especially when you buy popcorn, coke and candy) but it is one of my favorite things to do on a Saturday.
  14. I love love love all things CHOCOLATE!
  15. I frequently feel the need to break out in song and dance for no particular reason.

Check back tomorrow for #2 :)
