What? You don't use the icecream scoop for your corn too?
(Photo and idea courtesy of dear husband)
Tonight I made Mexican pizzas. You would think after all those days of scrubbing the Taco Bell sink I would hate the place, but I don't.
So, it was time to find a healthy alternative and I think I succeeded!
I cooked some ground turkey with onion and taco seasoning. Next I spread fat free refried beans on the whole wheat tortilla's pictured below. Then I put the meat on top of the beans and another tortilla on top of that. Last, I cooked them in the oven at 350 for about 10 or 15 minutes, just enough time to get crispy.
Last, top with sour cream, cheese, and veggies. YUM!
This was definitely a meal to make again. :)

This is THE weekend for celebrating with Abby and Preston!
They are getting married tomorrow :).Tonight we had the rehearsal dinner at Noodle's. We got to eat out on the patio, and I had tiramisu for dessert-what a treat!
We got to sit with Jana and Seth and that was a fun treat too! :)

Last night was a bridesmaid get-together for Abby and Jana and I were dressed alike and ordered alike. Twins. :)
The beautiful bride-to-be and I!
We had a little fondue party at Sally's apartment last night and these are the sides I prepared. It was delicious!
*Wedding pics soon! The decorations at the church are GORGEOUS, but I'd better not ruin Abby's surprise by posting early. :)

Day of rest:
Brett and I are both fighting off sinus/allergy stuff so today we took a day "off" (from farm work) and drove to Eureka for a couple of hours. We got coffee and sat on a bench and people watched for a long time. We also ate lunch there, and then came home to take a nap. How nice to rest! :)
Brett found this doll but I wouldn't let him get it. :)
Eureka has our favorite coffee place.EVER.
Us. In semi matchy, matchy outfits. A first for us.

Guess who came over tonight???? Hint: He's small, has a grin from ear to ear, and is easily entertained :)
Why, Caleb of course! Caleb, along with Jana and Seth, and Luis and Regina (another couple from church) came over tonight. We even got to spend some time outside. I love that Caleb is so happy about the little things.......because our "yard" doesn't have much. However, he loved the leaves, rocks, branches, etc. he found!

Aww....sweet boy loving on Regina and giving her arm a kiss :)

What a fun night :)
