Mouthwatering Mondays {Week 52}


Happy Monday, y’all!

Nathan and I are celebrating THIRTEEN years of marriage today!

The first kiss


I swear it’s gone by in a blink!!!

We have celebrated our anniversary by having lunch at Chipotle, buying Monkey a new bat and special catcher’s mitt, and we’ll cap it off tonight at the baseball field cheering Monkey’s team on as they play in the championships!!!!! WOOHOOO!  Go Rangers!


I’m loving this Simple Cassoulet from Modern Christian Homemaker.  This is perfect for summer camping trips, backyard cooking, or just because!
