I Love My Wife’s Cooking

When it comes to eating…both of us LOVE food!

And when it comes to cooking dinner….René usually does it!

Firstly, because she enjoys it!

Secondly, because I prefer to do the baking.

Thirdly, because she is just so GOSH DARN GOOD AT IT!

And she loves to try new recipes!  So when my mom gave René a recipe that came from her dear friend Patty, she immediately gave it to René to try out.  When her mom’s birthday rolled around, we invited her and her sister Casey over for a home cooked meal.  Below are pictures of René cooking dinner and the final product.

And BOY OH BOY….it was delicious!   Everyone enjoyed it!!!!

THANK YOU PATTY!

Since this is Patty’s recipe, if you are interested in having it, just let us know!  We will make sure it is ok with her and get it to you!

HAPPY EATING!

Every Man…

So…since I no longer can drive due to my Meniere’s Disease…René has to do all the driving.  And I…I had to change my ways and no longer be a back-seat driver.  But I can’t promise that I don’t have this look on my face sometimes!  LOL

Driving in Treacherous Weather

So about 2 years ago….René did a video of me “Driving in Treacherous Weather” which just cracked me up!  With me driving in a snow storm…and with her narrating the video…I just about cracked up when she did it!!

Here is a link to the original video on You-Tube:

Driving In Treacherous Weather

Now Flash Forward 2 years….and while René is driving in treacherous weather of her own (only this time it was rain)…I decided it was time to make a little video of my own!!!

Check out….

I have been very lackadaisical when it comes to posting on this blog!

But I have an excuse!!  René and I have been sooooo busy!

First….we have shooting our own VIDEO for “All About That Bass” that took up seconds…if not minutes of our past few months!!

(Exclusive first look of video below)

HAVE A HAPPY DAY!   You know we are!

How do we know…..

he-loves-me

 

***one day…I was sitting at work when a really nice email popped up on my screen from René.  It was the top part of this blog post.  So….I of course….had to reply (the bottom part)***

_______________________________________________________________________

How do I know he loves me…

Because he greets me with a kiss when I get home even if it interrupts his slot game

Because he gives me the side way look with a grin when I say something silly because he knows it will make me giggle even more

Because he loves me even with my mood swings

Because he tries to always make me smile

Because he says he loves me many times a day and always means it

Because he listens when I need to complain or vent about something

Because he loves movies as much as I do and when we go to the movies lets me eat as much movie butter popcorn as I want and never judges

Because he loves me for who I am not for who he thinks I should be

Because he always kisses me goodnight

_______________________________________________________________________

How do I know she loves me….

Because she lets me sleep on her lap, even though she has to pee and can’t get up

Because she kills all the spiders and bugs and does not judge me when I scream like a girl when I see them

Because she fixes me dinner and does all the dishes

Because she laughs at my jokes even when she doesn’t get them or think they are funny

Because she calls me every morning when she gets to work, even though we have nothing yet to talk about

Because she lets me play my computer games to unwind after work

Because she thinks I love her even when she is having her mood swings!

Because she will laugh at what I have written and know that I love her unconditionally because she is who she is

Our First Project – The Laundry Room

So….now that we are moved in and almost settled….I decided that my first project was going to be the Laundry Room.  After making sure that the color scheme and layout was going to be pleasing to everyone….I jumped right in!

Of course….there was some cleaning to do….some organizing to do….some shopping to do….etc.

But then came the hard part – there were some screws anchored into the wall that I could not get out.  So….Casey (Rene’s sister) came to the rescue.  Of course…by the time she was done….there were some HOLES in the wall that I needed to mend.  So I learned to spackle and fixed those up. (Starting to feel like such a man….except that I had to have the woman take the screws out of the walls)  LOL

Then it was time to paint!  The pictures below show the colors that I picked but it does not do it justice quite yet.  I ran two strips of blue tape all around the wall….so there will be this awesome white stripe between the green and the blue.  Plus…I have a couple of neat ideas on how to organize the room that are not quite done yet either.   But these pics will give you the general idea!  I will post pics of the completed project later!!!  Scott
