4 YEARS TODAY!! :)

Today is M. and I's 4 year Anniversary!!

It is hard to believe that it has been 4 years ALREADY!! Time flies by so fast!!! Before we know it we are going to be an old couple hitting up the BINGO scene. Lol 



Today I am thinking about what our future has in store for us [babies, career changes, moves??].... and how our past has brought us to where we are today… 


I can say I love my husband more now than I ever have… Our relationship has blossomed over the years, and  with each passing day we've grown closer together. We are in a great place now, and I feel so blessed to be able to share my journey through life with him by my side. 


 

Marriage for us has been like a good exhilarating roller coaster ride…the many thrilling highs, the scary drops, the inevitable twists and turns… the fearless feeling- laughing while throwing your hands in the air…the times where your holding on tight- screaming with your eyes shut…:) 
 When the ride comes to an end, we'll be there together smiling wanting to do it all over again. It's a crazy beautiful thing! :) and I am so mushy today... yuk! lol
 

Today we will celebrate by stuffing our face with good Italian food, and having a slice of a mini top layer wedding cake… [we order one each year]


AND... I will put my wedding dress on again like I do every year [just to make sure it still fits]… I know that sounds ridiculous, but I just want to make sure I stay as fit as I was the day we were married. HOPEFULLY I can squeeze into the thing! If not, it will be the only motivation I need to kick it up a notch ;)

Hope you all are having a good hump day!! Sorry for the mushiness in today's post, some days just call for it!!

ciao!

Heads On or Off?...

...that is the question!!

Shrimp season is here!! YUM!


I was so happy to see the road side shrimp stands out this weekend!! Every summer my husband and I look forward to visiting the shrimpers during our journies home from the beach.

Yesterday, we picked up a pound and headed home to clean them up and get em' on the grill!!
Normally, I go for the JUMBO... but it's too early for the BIG guys, so I settled with these...

Heads off... cause its already NASTY cleaning them, beheading them....  not my thing!




I made two kinds... A buttery herb, and teriyaki BBQ. They were both delicious, but my fav was the teriyaki.

The glaze is so easy to make... just mix 1 part BBQ sauce, 1 part teriyaki sauce,  S&P and walla!



With these vegi skewers... dinner was complete!!


Most of the vegi's I scored at our local farmers market this weekend.

 I met Leslie, one of my blog friends there on Saturday morning. It was our first time to meet in real life and was much overdue!! I think our first contact was last summer. It was so nice to finally meet her!! :)

Along with the fresh squash and zucchini... I also picked up a few HUGE heads of lettuce, jalapeno goat cheese, delicious strawberries, and broccoli.

OK, so are  you hungry yet? :) HAHA!


Hope you all had a wonderful weekend!!! :)
