Saudi Arabia Pudding..


Jordan and I decided that on Wednesday afternoons we would get her girls (Kead & Sayla) together with the boys I am watching (Hays & Will) and bake! Jord bought this really cool book that has easy-to-make desert recipes from all over the world! So far we have only gotten to do one country- Saudi Arabia... we cooked vanilla pudding (I don't remember the real name) and the kids loved it! I am so excited that we are doing this... it gives us a chance to teach them about different countries, cultures, and food, as well as pray for the different countries. Hays keeps asking me, "Bret-ney, remember when we made that Saudi Arabia pudding?... that was good, we should do it again!" Hopefully we will get to soon!

a day of fun!

this Valentine's day Chase and I decided to spend all day on Saturday together (we had all sorts of meetings & my mom came to town on actual Valentine's day)! The morning started out with Chase cooking me my favorite breakfast... pumpkin pancakes, fried eggs, Cinnamon Swirl Dunkin Donuts coffee, fruit & orange julius all while watching "When Harry Met Sally", then we went and saw 1/2 of "Valentine's Day" (the movie theater & the whole block that it is located on lost electricity... so we will have to go finish it another day!), had cupcakes & watched "Hangover" with Amanda, and we completed the night at my favorite place... La Diosa! (a really yummy wine bar with live music and great food!) Also, the bag at the top is the Valentine tote I made Chase... a spin off an idea I got from: kojodesigns. To say the least we had a full fun day! No matter what Chase and I do or who we are with I LOVE just being with him. I am blessed to be married to my best friend! Happy (late) Valentine's Day!!
