Neslay Toulouse...Nestle Toll House!!!

Happy Ash Wednesday everyone! So pictured above is one of my guilty pleasures...homemade strawberry shortcake. None of that fake shortcake crap you buy at Kroger for $1.99. The real deal...homemade shortcake with strawberries and vanilla ice cream. Now I'm not Catholic and have never given up anything for Lent before so this year marks the first year of trying! All my friends always gave stuff up for lent and yes i always thought about it and then realised there would be no way that i could stick with it. So this year, with the help of my hubby, we are going to give up sweets! That's more sweets, except maybe on Sunday because apparently you can cheat on Sundays! So last night marking me and Jonas' Fat Tuesday and our last night to eat sweets for quite awhile...we made our beloved strawberry shortcake and ate it without any guilty conscience! :)So get ready because there may be quite a few blogs about me going through withdrawals.

So for all you bloggers out there who have been buggin me to update here ya go! Sorry i havent updated in a while and i know some of you were having withdrawal symptoms from not having my blog to read so here is a little update on our life right now and what has been going on. :)

We had an awesome Christmas with our families and enjoyed every bit of our break! We went to Birmingham for new years and had a blast with Ashley and Matt, and Jan and Lisa who were so nice and let us come and bring stoney too! We then came back home and i headed off the next weekend to Chicago with my friends Aubrey and Cherry! It was soooo fun and i want to go back so bad! It poured down snow the entire time and we got out of there by the skin of our teeth because the week we left they were in the negative temperatures and had a blizzard! We shopped til we dropped and when i say "dropped" i mean ran my credit card bill up too high :) That week i got home Jonas traveled for work and then i was off again to the mountains in Georgia for a reunion with some of favorite people ever, Katie B, Em and Bird! It was a good long weekend with them filled with rock band, marsh mellows, and tons of food and gossip girl! Jonas and I then finally had some weekends here together and celebrated the super bowl with our friends last weekend! Our friends Gavin and Margaret came in town and we got to have dinner with them a few times and catch up on their lives. Which are pretty busy right now. Margaret is trying to get into Music school either here or in Chicago and Gavin is currently searching for a job. Its always good to see them! I wish i had pictures from last night to put on here because we had our House Church activity last night where we made Valentine's and took them to a nursing home and handed them out to the residents there and they loved it! Despite waking a few of them up they loved it and it was so good to see them smile and so happy to have visitors!

We have a weekend coming up again where we dont have anything to do so we are relaxing and going to have a saturday of walking around window shopping. I cant wait! Hope everyone has a happy thursday and a good weekend!
