Alzheimer's Walk 2012

Sorry for the absence over here. Jantz and I have been on the down low, but don't worry, we've still been having lots of fun cooped up in our apartment (and some really good things are finally happening, but more on that in a week or two).

A few weeks ago...ok ok over a month ago haha (major slacker here), on September 15th, we went on the Alzheimer's Walk in Colorado Springs with Jantz's family. Jantz's grandpa and my grandpa both had alzheimers, so it was great to go and think about our amazing grandpas. Jantz even made the family shirts for the walk! (yeah, he does custom designs and he prints shirts, so, shameless plug of my husband's crazy-good skills). They turned out so cute. The walk wasn't too bad, walking with everyone made it way better (thank goodness it wasn't a run. I never would have made it).

After we finished the walk, we went to go see the Garden of the Gods. Now, for all of you Utah friends, it's like a really mini version of southern Utah - like mini (you'll understand if you ever see it). Don't get me wrong, it was really pretty there and I'm so glad we went, but it was no Utah (I hate to admit it, but I have found a few things about Utah that I really miss......aside from my family of course, I will always miss them :). While we were in the park, we stopped and ate lunch all together. After all the walking, lunch was much appreciated. Then of course we had to pose for pictures...

some food

Well, I haven't had too much to blog about recently seeing as I haven't been doing much, except making food, which is the point of this post haha. I do, however, have an interview tomorrow for a job I might actually be excited for - so pray that I nail the interview and get the job :) I may also get to teach in January (!!!!...I probably just jinxed it, because I really really want to teach, but too late now). Oh AND, we're flying to Utah next week for my sister's wedding! So excited for her and her soon-to-be husband!!! We haven't all been together since Christmas, so it will be lots of fun. Jantz and I may already have a list of places we want to eat haha, including In and Out, Arctic Circle, and Subway (Colorado doesn't do the points card, can you believe it? and we have had a free sub ready since we moved!).

Anyway....I've been cooking dinner of some sort at least twice a week now, which is pretty impressive.   I've made bread a few times, and cinnamon rolls, AND I made strawberry jam this week with my mom-and-sister-in-law. I love their homemade jam and now have a freezer full of it :)

Pasta with a cream sauce from Rachel Ray (aka Pinterest),
and mushrooms and asparagus.

Chicken parmesan.

Jantz makes the perfect chicken.
Probably the best chicken I've ever had in my life.
And he makes it perfect every time. love.

Cinnamon rolls :)
