It's the little things like..

 sharing my morning coffee (little coffee, lots of cream) with my husband (little cream, lots of coffee). 

finding scribbles in my notebook days after I babysat my nieces. 

and narrowing down our wedding photos for the album

...that make a hectic work week not seem all that bad. 

Did I mention that I cannot wait to share my wedding photos with you??
Can.Not.Wait. :) Amelia, you truly are amazing.

yes, I'm still alive

but barely.
What started out as a tickle has led to strep throat. 

So while I wait for these next 24 hours of contamination to end, I've enjoyed catching up on some of my favorite tv shows and reading some of your lovely little blogs.

I need some help, y'all.

As silly as it sounds, I have a confession. Nearly seven years have passed since I've met and began dating my husband, Cory, and up until a few weeks ago, I had yet to cook for him. Not even once. The truth came out when Cory mentioned he would like to come home at least one day a week and find a home cooked meal waiting on him instead of finding me with a bowl of cereal in my hands and that look of "it's every man for himself in this household." 

So I cooked him a meal..well, cooked would be a very loose term. To risk grossing y'all out, I didn't fully cook the meat to stuff in my manicotti. And he might have gotten sick the next day...bless his heart, he swears it wasn't me.

And to think, I thought I was in the clear after such a long, successful, cook free rate of seven years. Well, here comes my second confession. I don't know how to cook. Ya'll. I'm a baker. Not a cook. I'm known for making pies and banana bread...although I do make a mean breakfast. (Favorite meal everrr.) But cook, I am not. 

So I need y'alls help. Will you help a girl out and send me some recipes? Preferably something I can make in both a veggie (me) and a meat (him) version. And this time, Cory has requested we cook together.. ;)
