Cooking Class in Session

Well, tennis season ended on Wednesday afternoon with a tough loss to the number 2 ranked team in the state. :( Oh well. I decided that since tennis was over and I would have more time in the afternoons now that it was about time I started learning how to cook more than macaroni and cheese, that is a stab for my sister that thinks that is all I know how to cook. Well a couple weeks ago I purchased this cook book that had some of America's most wanted recipes from several well-known restaurants. I decided to start with a favorite of mine, the fett. alfredo recipe from the Olive Garden. I deemed my first success on my new cooking adventure. It was a little more complicated than I thought it would be and it made TONS of pasta so I took the leftovers to school where everyone said that it was good.

I plan on trying more things down the road so I will keep you posted on how things go. I am getting excited about August getting closer and closer and Jonathan getting back. We have 15 weeks to go. I think the thing I am most excited about is knowing that once I am in his arms again I can hold tight knowing that I won't have to let go in a few days. That is the first time I will have been able to do that in a year and a half!!! Well I am off to go get ready for bed!

Hallo...a new adventure

Well I drove up to my sister's house on Thursday to spend the day with her and the boys. She very politely informed me that it was time for me to update my blog, so here I am.

Easter was pretty good. I went to church with mom and dad. We went to Grandaddy and Glendia's for the great food, fellowship, and finding of eggs. I had a lot of fun helping Jack with his eggs and also got in some cuddle time with sweet little Sam. I also engaged in a very interesting conversation with Brooklyn about how she weighs 11 ft tall. :) I love little kids! hehe!
I have been on spring break this week and it has been fairly uneventful aside from a few tennis practices and some spring cleaning. I did get to spend some quality time with big sis and nephews on Thursday. That was fun. Jack was very excited that he was going to the football game on Saturday. This will be his first Ga football game, even though its only a scrimmage. It will be interesting to see how he does.

On a BIGGER note, Jonathan received and has signed his contract. We will be going to...GERMANY!!! Hence, the "hallo" for the title. I am very excited. Now on to making sure everything that needs to get done actually gets done. I need to get my teaching job figured out. I need to get a physical done at the navy base in athens as well as get my military ID. I have already started to look up things to do and places to go that I hope we will get to all of them. The biggest thing about all of this is that I will be WITH my husband!! I am sooo excited. We have 17 weeks to go!!! This has been a trying time and it has definitely made our love for each other grow in a very special way that I will never regret. On the other hand I am ready to see my husband on a daily basis rather than a few months basis. God has been faithful through this time and has kept both of us strong. We are about to truly begin our lives together but it is more than that. We are also beginning our lives together by embarking on this amazing adventure. I am very excited about all of it and for my sister's sanity will try to keep you updated more often! ;)
