This is his cutest "pouting" face since we got stuck in traffic and for 50minutes he had no idea where we were going! HA, I loved it!
First of all, NO this in no way was like a needle. This wasn't like a needle going into me which is worse, I say! Now I was sick to my stomach/nervous all day Friday at work but whatever! HA!
The actual Tattooing felt like a burn or one of my dogs scratching me for 15minutes and it wasn't as bad as I thought it would be!
Saturday we went to have brunch at a favorite place of ours North Star.......and yup, I was on cloud 9 with the cloud 9 pancakes!!!!

6 Years ago today we said I DO! In some ways it seems like yesterday but in others it seems so long ago that it is hard to remember this special day! We were in Oklahoma and it was a beautiful sunny 70 degree Fall Saturday....perfection! I spent the day in our suite with my girls getting ready and watching a scary movie marathon! I do remember being relaxed all day, I remember that I loved nothing more than spending that day with my family. Matt spent his day with his guys at his parents cooking out.
Matt and I have had our ups and downs but what always remains is our love. And honestly there is no one else I would rather fight with! truth.
Take a trip down memory lane with me.......................

What is your biggest guilty pleasure? Is there a TV show you would rather not share with the world that you watch?

Gotta do whatcha gotta do!!! This scarf I found on Etsy! You can find such gems there!!!

You like those???? I could not have expressed the way I feel any better!!!! Sadly, it looks like this round of botox did not work. It has been 3 weeks and nothing.....in fact I am coming off one of the worst weeks in awhile. But hey, they said it could take up to 3 rounds for this work...so come December I will 100% try again! I am very sad but still hopeful. I can not live like this. (imagine me screaming that and having a tantrum) This week has been so awful and when I am in a really bad cycle it is so hard for me to stay positive. Gosh, I can't imagine how tired you all must be hearing of this.....I completely get it. Sometimes I think.....maybe Matt and I should discuss having a baby but then I get so sick I get sad and think....how could I? When I am this sick it takes everything I have just to get thru the work day... let alone care for another human being.
Ahh! I am over this melodrama! Thank you all for the positive vibes, I feel them and you make me feel so loved!

Blogger friends and prayer warriors......I need you. Well actually others need you. I don't mean to be so vague with you but the details are not mine to tell. I need prayer for my family and then for another close to ours. Someone in my family is going thru tests trying to find out why their health is declining. (declining might now be the best word but they are needing an answer to some scary symptom) The waiting game is the worst and it is hard to get your spirits high in any situation like this...I can't imagine. So just pray that my family finds....answers, healing and can stay positive!
Second, a dear dear friend of mines Stepmom is in the hospital due to massive bleeding on the brain. This was sudden, shocking and so scary for her and her family. They are currently running tests with neurosurgeons to figure out a plan on how to proceed. Please pray for the Mom who needs relief from pain, pray that God will guide the doctors and pray that her family will feel his peace!
Thank you So much!!!!

I have pinned countless Roast Chicken recipes on Pinterest so a week or two ago I decided to combine them all in a easy approachable way for a delish Fall dinner!! Matt loved this....he went on and on without me having to ask! So husband approved people!!!
And let's just get this out of the way........Yup, she is upside down! Didn't realize it until later but hey....she tasted good!
3-5 pound Chicken
Fresh herbs : Sage, Thyme, Rosemary (any combination will work)
Butter, EVOO, S&P
Apple Cider Vinegar
Apples, Sweet Potato, Potato (as much or as little as you want)
Carrot, Celery, Onion
Orange- I chopped her up and put it in because I had this in my fridge! I stuffed the orange inside the chicken too!
- Peel and chop up all of your veggies then toss into a roasting pan or casserole dish can work too!
- Chop your apples but do not peel and throw them into your pan also! TIP! These will pretty much disappear but this gave the broth and veggies the best taste!!!!
- Give all your veggies a nice sprinkle of salt and pepper then drizzle with EVOO.
- Next, drizzle your veggies with Apple Cider Vinegar (about 1/4 cup)
- Plop your chicken on top and slather with butter! Yumm!!! Salt, pepper and any other seasonings you would like.
- Chop up your fresh herbs and toss over veggies and chicken!
- Cover with foil and cook at 325' for 1 1/2 hours!
- Uncover and finish at 375' for another 30min-1 hour depending on chicken size! I did an hour!
