Thai Night

David and I have been enjoying hosting people in our home for various dinners and parties. This weekend we had the new captains in his office over for a "welcome to Sheppard AFB gathering. It was a really fun evening and we loved getting to know them better. With people leaving and new people joining the office, it is truly setting in that a new chapter is beginning.

For this dinner we had a vegan joining us, so I jumped online and found some great Thai recipes. The menu included:

coconut lemongrass soup served with rice

pad thai served with curried chicken on the side

raspberry sorbet and vanilla ice cream pie

The food turned out great and it was a fun night for all!


The week of David's birthday he was gone to Alabama for training. So on Friday I picked him up in Dallas and we enjoyed a night on the town. We ate dinner at a fantastic Mexican restaurant in Grapevine and stayed at a great hotel. Saturday we ran errands in the city, did some shopping for summer clothes, and went back to Grapevine for their Farmer’s Market. It was a completely relaxing two days but we were excited to get back to McCovey and celebrate Easter here in “The Falls”.

It is so crazy that Easter is already here, this spring has gone by so quickly, but we had a great day attending mass at our church and then opening Easter baskets that we gave to each other…

David’s parents sent Mac an Easter Egg with a dog bone in it, so of course it was hidden, he found it, got it open and enjoyed every morsel of his treat!

Easter cookies were baked and decorated and plated to be handed out to neighbors and coworkers.

Alleluia, He is Risen! He is Risen indeed!


Last month we took a long weekend to head up to the Northwest, and it was amazing! Here are some photos to show you how our weekend went…

We spent the night with David’s grandparents at their gorgeous home on the Puget Sound. It was such a beautiful day and of course Nonnie made incredible food, Papa had some fun projects for David to complete, and we enjoyed relaxing by the water.

I was so lucky to spend time with my dear friend Harmony. We met for coffee and we also had a slumber party complete with a bottle of wine!

Thank goodness for Aunt Teri and her beautiful home! We truly enjoyed relaxing at her home, eating her amazing cooking, and sharing a ton of laughs!

The reason for the weekend visit to the Northwest was that my dear friend Kate got married! Friday we enjoyed pedicures, the rehearsal, and the fantastic rehearsal dinner at the Crab Pot.

Saturday was such a blast, getting ready, spending great girl time and then celebrating the love and commitment of Sam and Kate.

Sunday we could not have been luckier than to spend the day celebrating our friends Tyler and Melissa and the birth of their daughter. Melissa looks amazing and it was even more fun to celebrate the upcoming birth of baby Green with our friends Erik and Jenni. What fun to have the college roommates and the “girlfriends” (now wives) together again.

What a perfect weekend it was! We wish Kate and Sam a life full of joy and love and Tyler and Melissa a fun new chapter with their happy and healthy new baby girl!
