The Hubby is Home and Baking!

The hubs has actually been home for two weeks or so, but I couldn’t say anything publicly until I received an all clear..(military language). It goes without saying just how over the moon we’ve been about his arrival home(a whopping 2 months earlier than his scheduled arrival date). Thank you all for keeping him/us in your thoughts and prayers. If you’re new here and have no clue what I refer to, read hereSmile.

The mister is undoubtedly a pro in the kitchen and while baking is not my strong point, he does it effortlessly. This weekend, he whipped up some basic chocolate chip cookies.  I don’t have a sweet tooth(the opposite of the hubs). However, I gobbled down those moist delicious beauties in no time…

yummy looking aren’t they?

About a month ago I repainted my kitchen white. Yes, I know, so unlike me. However, I wanted a more modern feel to the kitchen and I think I’ve accomplished that with the white. I plan on showing some more pictures soon.

I have to have lemons. How about you? I forgot to tell you all that I completed my 30 day green smoothie challenge and I’m still proudly (though not everyday), making my green smoothies.
