Bear with me today

Okay, is it bare or bear with me? Stupid question, I know.

I'm going to go ahead and finish up the 30 Days of Me today. I should have already been done with this over a month ago.

Day 18: Whatever tickles your fancy

I got a job! Get this though. It's a nanny position where I will be working 9 hours a day 5 days a week. I will be primarily taking care of the couple's 18 month old son.
Oh, on top of that I'll be taking 6 online classes. You heard that right, 6 online classes. Maybe my mom is right.

Day 19: A talent of yours

I have no talent. None. I can't sing, draw, paint, etc. I have really been wanting to get into photography. I love taking pictures but my camera is crappy to take the  kind of pictures I want to take. Maybe one day that will be my talent. Who knows?

I was just informed by Jon that my talent is cooking. I don't think so but he begs to differ. I've really been on a healthy kick lately and have been  cooking some great things.

Day 20: A hobby of yours

I would have to say reading is my hobby. I'm in love with reading. It was so bad when I was younger that my parents would take away my books when I was grounded, along with everything else. If they wouldn't have I could have sat in my room for hours just reading.

Day 21: A recipe

I've been finding some amazing recipes from Cooking Light.


1 tablespoon canola oil
1/2 cup chopped green onions (about 4)
1 garlic clove, minced I just bought a jar of minced garlic
1 cup sliced fresh okra (about 4 ounces)
1 cup chopped red bell pepper (about 1)
1 finely chopped seeded jalapeño pepper
1 cup fresh corn kernels (about 2 ears)
1 (15-ounce) can black beans, rinsed and drained
1/3 cup minced fresh cilantro
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions and garlic; sauté 1 minute. Add okra; sauté 3 minutes. Reduce heat to medium. Add bell pepper and jalapeño; cook 5 minutes. Add corn; cook 5 minutes. Stir in beans; cook 2 minutes. Stir in cilantro; sprinkle with salt and black pepper.

I paired this reciped with broiled salmon. It was awesome! It also makes for left over lunch the next day.

Day 22: A website

You must check this website out! It has the cutest clothes. Pink Ice

I want this

This also

Ooo, and these!

Day 23: A YouTube video

I love this girls videos on youtube! She has great makeup tutorials.

Isn't she gorgeous?!

Day 24: Whatever tickles your fancy

I'm going to skip this one.

Day 25: Your day, in great detail

I cleaned. Oh, and watched two shows I DVRed last night. Needless to say, I was lazy today.

Day 26: Your week, in great detail,
Day 27: This month, in great detail,
Day 28: This year, in great detail

I grouped these three together because it was going to get repetitive. My life so far this year has been really uneventful. The only thing worth mentioning is my engagement! I've already talked about that though so I won't go into detail.

Day 29: Hopes, dreams and plans for the next 365 days
 I want to marry the man of my dreams, finish up my associates next May, figure out where we'll be when Jon reclasses and if we end up staying at Fort Hood, buy a house.

Day 30: Whatever tickles your fancy

Again, I'm skipping this one.

I'm doneeee!
