Wednesday, October 29, 2014's been a while!

It has been such a long time since I blogged!  Over a year since I've shared with the blogosphere! Well, I'll catch you all up: I threw some more parties, achieved almost all of my 2013 resolutions then set new resolutions for 2014, I renewed my vows with my husband, watched my brother get married, visited New York City, moved to Oregon, dyed my hair purple and now I'm unemployed for a bit :) All caught up!

July 2013 Resolution Report

July flew right past me! I'm still in shock that it's already August. We made some great progress on our 2013 Resolutions!  We celebrated our 4th wedding anniversary this month!  One of my resolutions is to be more thankful & I gotta say that I am thankful each and every day that I've spent with my hubby!

Throwback Thursday: Post 2

Ok, so when I said that I'd do this on a weekly basis..I lied.  I missed last weeks post!  I did all of the uploading though, so I didn't completely fall off of the wagon!  The album that I went through is a mixture of different trips all around England, so I'm not exactly sure where each shot was taken, but it was still amazing to go through them all!

Throwback Thursday: Post 1

I have a new project!  I love having things to work on and plan out!  This new project involves scanning all of dad's old photo albums.  I've decided to devote one evening per week to this task and decided that Thursday would be perfect as it's Throwback Thursday (#tbt on instagram, twitter, etc)!  I started off with these shots from our trip to Athens, Greece & it took me about 20 minutes to get all of the scanning done.  The cropping, fixing red eye and tagging places & faces in Picasa took a bit longer, but it was all worth it!  I am so excited to have all of these pictures on my computer now!

June 2013 Resolution Report

We made it to the halfway mark of the year!!!  I can honestly say that I feel great about my 2013 Resolutions thus far. Sure, I have days or weeks where I'm not totally happy with my results, but it's still been great overall.  We still use each Sunday to discuss our progress and although it can be frustrating, it's also rewarding to know that we're sticking to our plan.

Beautiful flowers from my family!

First Camping Trip of 2013!

I'm so excited for summer!  Camping is one of my favorite things to do during the summer and we recently went out to the lake for a fun weekend camping!  We try to go to once a month during the warmer months, so that we can swim in the lake, hang out by a fire at night and enjoy the sounds of nature while we sleep.  Look at the view from our campsite!:

Sweet Summer Sausage Tin Foil Dinner

I'm at it again! I'm grilling up delicious tin foil dinners every chance I get :D  I made two different tin foil dinners this last camping trip. I wanted something to satisfy my sweet tooth, so I picked sweeter veggies to throw into the foil packets. It turned out great! Scroll to the bottom for a printable recipe card.

Bacon and Egg Breakfast Disaster

We went camping this past weekend and so before we left I went to Pinterest for some ideas for what to eat when I came across a recipe for Brown Paper Bag Eggs & Bacon. The recipe stated that I could line the bottom of a brown paper bag with bacon then crack an egg or two in there, fold the bag at the top then place it over the fire until the grease is about halfway up the bag.  My husband's instant reaction was, "won't it catch fire." 

Here's the start of our meal:

Beef and Beans Tin Foil Dinner

If you've reading any of my camping posts then you know that I LOVE grilling and eating Tin Foil dinners! The best part about making Tin Foil dinners is that you can throw just about anything in the foil packet & grill it.  This time we decided to experiment with adding beans to the mix!  It turned out amazingly delicious! There's a printable recipe card at the bottom of the post.
