Date night

Little man is visiting my parents this weekend and helping my brother ("Unkie Wii-A") move into his dorm room, so Tripp and I decided to go out on the town.
Because our town has so little to choose from we decided on dinner and a movie. We ate Mexican and then went to see "Dinner for Schmucks". It was so nice to spend some quality time with Tripp and the movie was hilarious. Steve Carell did an amazing job and Paul Rudd supplied some nice eye candy (shh don't tell Tripp).
All in all it was a wonderful evening with my wonderful husband. Hope y'all had as good of a Friday night as I did!
Well it's past my bed time.
G'Night All.

Are you there God it's me Chelsea...

I know that God has a plan for me. I remind myself daily as I check the state website for teaching positions. But sometimes I wish that the HE would let me in on it. I thought this year would be much easier seeing how I now hold my state teaching certificate. But so far no luck.
I keep holding out hold that I will get a job by the end of the month, but today is the 28th so it's getting close to my deadline.
So when you say your prayers feel free to say one for me.

Happy Birthday Hubs!

Tripp turned twenty-seven on Tuesday and we had a wonderful (stressful) evening. On the way home from Lexington Tripp was stuck in traffic for over two hours and I screwed up a cake (forgot to flour the pans). So needless to say it was a rather eventfully birthday for us all.
Everything ended up working out though. Tripp got home safe and I went and bought a cake from Kroger and we had a lovely dinner. :)

Nathan and I are so lucky to have Tripp in our lives and I thank God for him everyday!

Weekly Menu

At the suggestion of my momma I've decided to cut back on numerous trips to the grocery by planning a weekly menu. I started doing this two weeks ago and it has been so handy. So today I sat down trying to decide what I wanted to cook. I looked through all my cookbooks, but nothing really jumped out at me. So I decided to get on the lovely Pioneer Woman's site. I have looked at her site for part of my day, well more than part...don't judge. I have found several recipes that I can not wait to try with my family. Needless to say this next weeks menu has a theme...Pioneer Woman.

I highly doubt will look as good as hers, but I will give it a shot!
Simple, Perfect Enchiladas

Grilled Ribeye Steak with Onion Bleu Cheese sauce

Caramelized Onion & Prosciutto Pizza

Pioneer Woman's Favorite Burger Ever

I need one more recipe for the week which means we will probably end up grilling hot dogs. I only create a menu for five days that way we can use the leftovers.

I'll be sure to let you know how these recipes turn out! I'm excited to try them seeing how tasty they look!

The Honeymooners Part 1

I have yet to upload all our pictures from our honeymoon, but in my defense I have been busy...kinda. Here are some pictures that we had taken of us at Walt Disney World's Grand Floridian Resort.
We had so much fun doing this and our photographer was a great! I would recomend this Disney service to anyone. Tripp and I have already decided that we will be doing this every Disney trip! I can't wait till we take Nathan back and have his pictures done.

Here is the link for anyone out there wanting to check it out.
