Busy Bee

I am happy to say, the days and weeks have been flying by. Why, tomorrow is Friday already and that means another week of deployment has come and gone! 

Speaking of deployment, I finally broke down and made a donut of misery. I had no idea how detailed those things are. 

I really don't need to know that I have a gajillion trillion seconds or however long until I see my husband again. (Ok so maybe I'm exaggerating, but you get the point.)

However, I do like looking at it as the donut slowly creeps towards 50%.

I can hardly believe how long its been since I've seen my hubby, but if the rest of this year goes by as quickly as the past few months he will be home before I know it. 

In the mean time I am keeping myself busy with work and surrounding myself with good friends. I am also trying to broaden my horizons when it comes to cooking. 

Remember this post, where I stated I wanted to learn and perfect 20 new recipes before my husband returned home? I haven't really counted  how many I've tried so far but I have been getting more creative.

For awhile I felt like I was in a "food rut," and couldn't think of anything new or interesting to make. Since I am obsessed with good food, or mostly just eating it, I've decided to add a recipe section to my blog. 

My goal will be to post at least one recipe each week of something I've made. Lets hope I can keep the commitment! ;)

On another note, this month marks our two year wedding anniversary and I have been fervently working on an extra special care package for my hubbs.♥

I will post pics once I know he has received it. My real life bloggy friend Brittany from "Tales of a Sailor's Soulmate" taught me how to make cake in a jar since I had never done it before.
It was a success and when I find the time, I'm going to post the step by step pics and instructions for those of you who are like me, and had no clue what I was doing.

Britt actually did most of the steps while I watched, asked questions and took pictures for said blog post. ;) 

She was a great teacher and we also made some tye dye cake, with some home made icing to boot. It was 
No, but was amazing! 

Well, that's all for now my darlings...I have a 10 & 1/2 hour work day tomorrow so its time to get some beauty sleep. Lord knows I'm gonna need it! 

Happy Thursday lovelies!! ♥
