Every Vote Counts!

Hands down Luvy is the bookworm in this family.  I like to read magazines, blogs, and recipe books.  Luvy on the other hand, has a library.

No, really… not joking.  He loves adding to it too.  AND he has read every book in his library.

One days shipment of books from Amazon was 11 books.

You would have thought it was Christmas again over here!  He was in nerd heaven.

Today, I got my own book in the mail.  I don’t think Luvy knew what to do when a book came in for me and not him!

Remember how I told you all that I was wanting to spend more time out of the kitchen??  Well, I ordered The Vegan Slow Cooker by Kathy Hester.  Hopefully, this will help me to use my crockpot more and save time at night cooking dinner!  

Don’t worry.. I’ll let you know how it goes.  🙂

Okay, enough about books.  I need your help!  My office is having a contest.

I need you all to go to our facebook page and like the office I work at, Hughes Family Dentistry.  Once you do, in the comments section write “Brittany”.  THIS IS A VERY IMPORTANT STEP.  The person that gets the most “votes” by mentioning their name in the comments section wins $100.  🙂  Here is the link.

If I win, I will give $50 to our mission fund at our church to help support local, national, and international mission trips.

What are you waiting for??? GO VOTE!


Social Butterfly

Thanks for all the feedback on the new look of the blog!  I’m hoping to spruce things up a little bit at a time.

Working full-time, school, and daily life keeps me from being able to devote much time to the blog lately.  I’m hoping that will change here soon.

This weekend, I decided to take a blog break.  Sometimes I feel like my camera is glued to my hand a little too much.  I don’t want to turn into “that girl” who is constantly taking pictures and looking for her next blog post!

It’s only Monday, and I’m already looking forward to another weekend!

Our weekend was filled with friends and social events!  On Friday, I worked on school stuff all day and met up with my friend Ruthie to study and have lunch.

Saturday, Luvy and I cleaned the house.  Luvy did most of the work, because I was making messes in the kitchen for our get together Saturday night.  🙂  

I made chex mix, corn casserole, and a chocolate peanut butter pie.

Saturday night, we headed over our friends’ home for dinner and to hang out with our missionaries from Peru, Monty and Janice!

It was fantastic seeing them again, plus we got to hang out with friends that we don’t get to see often.

Sunday, Ruthie came down to go to church with us.  Afterward, I treated her to jambalaya, and we got to do some homework.  However, it is MUCH more bearable to do homework with her rather than alone!  I wish I had taken pictures, but we were chatting so much I forgot.

I don’t think I have done this much socializing in months!

That was pretty much my weekend.  How was yours??

A New Look

Notice some changes around here??  I have been wanting to make things a little different on here for a while now.

I hate change, so I have put it off for a while now.  It isn’t done yet!   Before I put too much blood, sweat, and tears into the design (okay maybe only the tears part is true!), I want your feedback.

You all are the ones that matter.  I want you all to like what you see.  Maybe you will want to come visit me more often!  🙂

So, with that said.. I would LOVE your feedback.  What do you all like/not like about the design.  What would you all like to see?

Meanwhile, I’m off to get my foot massage.  Our house was divided tonight.  Djokovic and Murray played early this morning in the Australian Open, so we recorded it and watched it tonight.  I was cheering for Djokovic and Luvy was cheering for Murray.

I told him that if Djokovic won, I wanted a foot massage.  He agreed.  I asked him what he wanted if Murray won.  He said nothing. I guess he didn’t have much faith in his man!  🙂  At least my feet will be happy tonight.

Okay, so what’s your thoughts on the “new” blog????
