Vacation to Alabama.

Here are a few pictures from our vacation. Please disregard all Horrid pictures of me! haha

We ate some wonderful seafood while visiting the beach. I finally got to try soft shell crab, and it was so Good... and SO expensive, but we were on vacation and that was the ONE thing i wanted, so David made me get it. (he really had to pull my leg!)

Red Pepper & Onion Pizza

I apologize ahead of time for the lack of a photo. But while watching Pizza Paradise on tv-- I really wanted some pizza!!
I always have a pizza crust packet on hand for these sorts of things.. (get the cheapest dry pack you can find at walmart--trust me, its the best) Mix up as the directions say, but I always add some italian seasoning to it. YUM.
I put my in a round cake pan, and poked holes in it with a fork, so it won't get all puffy on ya--put in oven for about 5 or 6 minutes. Then proceed with the toppings.. i used some jarred marinara (you can also use spaghetti or pizza sauce of course), then i put some sliced pepperjack cheese, and topped that with sautéed red bell pepper and onion. I also put some diced tomatoes on top and sprinkled with a dash of sea salt.
Bake in oven for about 10-15 minutes. At the end I remembered that I had some feta cheese, so i put a good sprinkling of that on top. Oh my was this good-- the husband was looking for some meat, but I don't think he missed it either way!


<< Aren't they cute? This was taken long before I was around.. But I am ever so thankful for David, and every member of his family. Even though they are many miles away- I know that they love us without a shadow of a doubt! One day I hope that David and I can live closer to Georgia--even if its just a few hours closer, I would settle for it!

Its been a while..

I need something calm and serene to focus on tonight. Seems like its been a rough couple of weeks, or maybe I'm just overly emotional. Its almost like every time I turn around there is a new disappointment ready to hit my square in the face. I attempt to be strong and just let it roll off my shoulders, but I can't always put my happy face on. Ya know what I mean? Theres days where I feel like I have no friends at all, no one who really considers how what they are doing affects me. And then I tell myself, I'm just being selfish, and maybe I am. Maybe I'm over analyzing things--but still yet, I think I'm just being realistic about the situation. I know theres nothing I can do about it, besides whine a little bit (or maybe a lot). I will let it go soon enough, and somewhere down the road I won't even remember what happened to begin with. Its still disheartening though. I do most certainly have close friends in my life, and those are ones that I have started friendships with in the last couple of years.. I am so thankful for those few people- they most definitely make my life a more happier one. On a different note, my mother in law, sent me the book "the power of a praying wife"..WOW, what a great book! I have almost read the entire thing and I have never been so inspired. The more I read it the more I learn, the more anxious I am to keep reading every chance I get. Even the husband can tell how much I enjoy it, because I talk about it a lot! It is most definitely a book to get, seriously.. Get it!! --Kristin
