A more naive version of myself thought I could plan a wedding for $12,000-$15,000. I guess if we had really tried, we could’ve made it work in that budget. Our catering and venue alone blew that original pipe dream out of the water. Luckily for us, the Army has played a big role in paying […]
We’ve been on a cereal treat kick of late. Our first adventure was with peanut butter puffs. This is the same recipe as traditional Rice Krispie treats, but with a different cereal. What you’ll need:6 cups of peanut butter puffs (we used generic for this round)4 tablespoons of butter10 oz (one small bag) of marshmallows […]
The weekend before Mac deployed was suddenly upon us. We had spent weeks shopping for extra gear, packing up his stuff, and dreading the first weekend of December. His parents decided to come down one last time before he left. Mac told me he wanted to buy me my Christmas present before he left. We […]
That’s an obnoxious song. One topic brides, single ladies, and the long-time married can talk about is money. No matter how hard we work, we always seem to never have enough. Budgeting for a wedding tends to put a pinch on the purse-strings. Mac and I decided that we would pay for our own wedding. […]
As I prepared to graduate from college, I began exploring my options. Should I go to graduate school or get a job? Where? Mac and I discussed what we should do. Ultimately, we wanted to be together. Mac was moving to Fort Bragg when he completed his officer courses in Oklahoma. North Carolina offered graduate school […]
Mac and I happened across a new Pillsbury product a few months back while at the Commissary: crescent rounds. Basically, these are crescent dough in a cute spiral roll instead of the traditional triangle. We grabbed a few cans and began pondering what sort of recipes we could create. Then inspiration hit us. How about […]
Wow, where have the past sixteen months gone? Yesterday was the two month mark until wedding day! I suppose we really have to kick our butts in to high gear and finish all the little (and not so little) projects I’ve been avoiding.
Mac was enrolled in Army ROTC at Tech when we met. We both went into our relationship knowing that he would commission as a second lieutenant less than two months later. The night before commissioning, we had the genius idea to finish off any liquor in the apartment. Mac had four roommates and I had […]
Blog, I’ve been neglecting you. Work has been stupid, mind-numbing, and utterly frustrating. I have several new recipes to post, and lots of wedding planning shenanigans to catch up on. Invites go out today! Whoot. With that monkey off my back, I can get back here.
Hello to my first follower, Jessica! Today I’m going to post my first recipe, chili. Nothing too crazy, but it’s a crowd pleaser. If you’re a super chef like my parentals, you make your own chili seasoning. If you’re afflicted with chronic laziness (like me), I use chili seasoning mix. I also made cornbread with […]
