My Man's Birthday: Jon Turns 28!

I was so thankful to be able to celebrate 28 years with this sweet man.  Thank you, Jesus, for him.  We had such a wonderful, relaxing day to celebrate.  Since it was his birthday, Jon got to pick all festivities for the day.  Naturally, this means we started off with a big birthday breakfast at our favorite diner.  We then headed home just to hang out and relax on the couch.  We were both pretty tired of going out since we had just gotten back from New York City the day before, so Jon really wanted to eat in for lunch and dinner.  Since he wasn't sure what he was in the mood for, and kind of wanted to try something new, I set the birthday boy up on my Pinterest account to go to town looking for ideas.  For lunch, he came up with the Spicy Italian Crescent Ring and for dinner, Chicken Pot Pie Cupcakes!  I think it's safe to say that since then we've been keeping Pillsbury in business!  Both recipes were super good and easy.  You should definitely check them out.  Of course we ended the day with a birthday cake and ice cream.:)

Our 2014 Christmas

Happy New  Year, Y'all!  I feel like it has been forever since I've written.  I've never been entirely on top of this blogging in a timely fashion, but maybe 2015 is the year.:) I hope all of you had a wonderful Christmas.  Jon and I headed down to visit my family on the farm.  We spent our first week renovating a room for my parents' Christmas gift (more on that later), ate tons of cake, drank gallons of coffee, and loved every minute of spending time with loved ones.  We spent one day with Dad's family and one with Mom's, but could probably change our address to Lowe's as many trips as we made there. :)  Happy Holidays.  Our Christmas in photos...
