It’s your Birthday!!

Thanks for all the recipes and suggestions for vegetarian recipes yesterday! Lots of them sounded delicious and I can’t wait to whip them up. This whole vegetarian thing started a few days ago when Joey jokingly said, “Hey, if Daniel {from the Bible} can survive on vegetables, so can I!” I immediately jumped on board and here we are on Day 3. So far, so good. We have only toyed with the idea of thawing the frozen beef once, so I’d call that a success.

I think next time, I will have a few recipes in the arsenal ready to go when we take on this challenge- being in the kitchen at 7 p.m. with a hungry husband and a stalk of broccoli is hardly a situation that usually ends well. Thankfully, Joey and I have managed to make do so far. Lots of veggie-ful deliciousness is headed our way, thanks to you guys!

In more important news, it’s Katie’s BIRTHDAY today! The big 2-6.


Meaning, she’s almost 30. Which is basically 40.


NOT. Kate, you’re rocking 26 like nobody’s business.


All jokes aside, Kate- I absolutely love you. It has been one of the biggest blessings to have you for a sister. I think 24 years, 2 months, 6 days, 12 hours and 13 minutes is about how long I’ve known you now.

Thats 211,997 hours.

About 8,839 days.

About 1,980 school days of walking home together.

About 74 {at least} outfits we’ve fought over. And counting.

About 1,295 miles we’ve driven total in the past few years to have Whole Foods lunch and Coffee Bandits together.

About 184  blog posts. {Remember how nervous we were to publish the first one?!?}

I think I know ya pretty well. I pray that God gives you many, many more years on this earth to be YOU and use your gifts to bless others.


Love you forever!


P.S. We love meat. We are doing this challenge simply to see how we feel after a month and to try something new.  Pretty sure this is what Joey will be thinking about finding after 3 1/2 more weeks…
