Hey there!

I just wanted to share this awesome Chinese Chicken Salad recipe with you real quick. My mom used to be in a bowling league and got this a fellow bowling buddy. I made a request for it the other day and Voila! She brought it to the office a couple days later. She's the best.

Here we go...

I'm alive!

Barely...I have been crazy busy at the office and had zero time to post. By the time I get home it is after 7 and then it's on to the work that has to be done at home...and then on the weekends, after work, Matt and I try to get out and do something fun...that doesn't involve work in any way! Last Saturday we went to Round Barn Winery and met up with his cousin and his wife, who also happens to be my very good friend! Every weekend they have something called Jammin' in the Vineyard. We had such a blast just hanging out, people watching, listening to live music and enjoying some wine, vodka slushies and beer! We then went to dinner at Wheatberry Tavern and had some great food!
