Cheese and beer soup, Amen

Birthday boy update: Marcus got to celebrate his day of birth for the entire weekend and this evening. Yesterday we took a trip to the mall to pick up a few microplanes that he’s been just dying to have then headed to the theater to catch George Lucas’ movie Redtails. We even decided that since it was his birthday that we could indulge a little bit and share some buttery popcorn. Worth it.

Pretty good way to spend a birthday.

Tonight we had the opportunity to celebrate some more with both of our families at one of our local faves, Django. The food was delish as always, the wine flowed (B.Y.O.W. – no corkage ever!), and I may have snuck a piece of champagne cake in my belly. Again, worth it.

Happy birthday my love!

It has been cold and snowy lately here in Iowa. I know, I know, you’re thinking, “Duh Nicole, of course it’s cold – it’s winter!” But really, it’s been such a mild winter so far that my body isn’t sure how to respond to the bone chilling cold air that is whipping around now.

The only way I see fit to combat such a thing is to make a heaping pot of soup and enjoy it slowly. So that is just what I have on my to-do list for tomorrow night. Marcus and I are watching our carb-intake so I was trolling the internet for a low-carb soup and came across this one. Sounds right up my alley!

Marcus shared this video with me today – think we could get Karl to pray with us before our dinner tomorrow night? Haha, yeah right.

To-Do lists: I love the feeling of putting a check mark in a box.
