6 month celebration!

               For our 6 month celebration Jordan and I tried a friend recommended restaurant, Mama Chus. We love us some Mexican food, so we decided to take a chance. 
            When we pulled up, we almost doubted our decision, but decided not to turn around. We were pretty hungry.

       While we waited we ate the really spicy salsa. We tried to take a picture with a jalapeno chunk and I had my tongue out in a "this is spicy" manner, and the little punk named Jordan tried to put a massive jalapeno inside my mouth:( I may look amused, but I was not.

     Jordan was VERY happy that he could get two smothered burritos for about $8.

      Our frozen cake was basically a disaster. Jordan's dad was so good and tried really hard to preserve it for us. It just got very soggy and yucky. Our reactions tell a great story.

     Like I posted earlier, our marriage is a blessing & I enjoy every second of it. I am so lucky to have Mr. Zeus in my life. He is pretty amazing!

Bruchetta Chicken

This is definitely not a cooking blog & I am NOT a chef by any means, !but! I made up a recipe last night. It was beyond delicious.  Jordan & I are obsessed with bruchetta. We eat it almost monthly with those nice white french bread loaves. It's probably not the best thing to eat a whole one of those between two people that often. I decided I could make a chicken substitute. The following is my recipe, not really that complicated, but it was OH so good! *the picture isn't mine. I stole it from pintrest.

Bruchetta Chicken:

3 chicken breasts, cut in half and poked sufficiently with a fork.
3 cloves of garlic, minced and separated
Salt & Pepper
Balsamic Vinegar
Olive Oil
4 roma tomatoes, diced
Fresh Basil

Once your chicken breasts are halved and poked, season with salt an pepper. Saute with a little Olive Oil half of the garlic until nearly done, About 20 min. Meanwhile, Mix tomatoes, 1 T olive oil, the other half of minced garlic and 2T balsamic vinegar. When the chicken is nearly done, brush each side with balsamic vinegar and cook 2 minuets and add the tomato mixture & cook until warmed. Yum:)

6 months of honey

                  Tomorrow is the 6 month mark of when Jordan and I got married. It isn't a landmark really, just a day we're supposed to eat our frozen wedding cake. I think it is a good test drive for our actual anniversary. We are planning on trying a new Mexican place to celebrate. Other then that and cake I wasn't expecting anything so I told J I wasn't planning on presents or cards. To which he asked, "I'm supposed to get you something on anniversaries?" I think it was a good discussion as I felt that was something everyone knew:)
                  After explaining to Jordan that I'd appreciate flowers and/or a gift on our actual anniversary we talked about our relationship for quite some time. I have decided that it is beyond special. I am so very lucky and blessed to be a part of it. I don't want this to sound braggy or fake. I just want to remember this time forever. I honestly love every second I spend with the man I call my husband. I am my best, happiest self with him. We have never fought, which I know will come some day. We are in a weird transition right now where Jordan is waiting for his fabulous job to start. A wait that has been much longer than we thought it would be. Because of that, we have a lot of time to spend together. I was sure that I'd be a person in marriage who needed space and personal alone time, but every second I'm not at work, I want to be with Jord.

                  A 6 month honeymoon phase is behind us and I am looking forward to many more years of it! Marriage is so special and sacred. I would highly recommend it!

Ugly pictures of a happy girl

I never blog. Then I think I should just delete it, but that makes me feel sad & I'd probably just make another one a week later. So, this is me blogging. I lost my camera for a long time, but it has been found & I have taken a whole two pictures with it. One was at the movies after a long day at 7 peaks. I know I look LOVELY, but I want to remember how fun the day was:) The other picture is me and my beautiful friend Sarah. I had lunch with her yesterday & actually took a picture. So, I guess this is proof that I have friends:) Summer has been wonderful & I am one happy girl!! I think my husband is happy too, unless he secretly cries when I leave for work. I doubt it though
