1. I began this week with wrapping things up for the latest article I'm writing for Military Spouse Magazine. I had the pleasure of interviewing the owner of Trinity's Treats, a made from scratch bakery owned by fellow military spouse and friend, Malaika Marks. Husband Man, the kids, and I took a trip to the bakery to complete a photo shoot for the article and boy did we ever have fun!
You see those cupcakes down below? She made them for us ;) Ok...so they weren't exactly for us…but for an event she had to be at the next day. However, we did get to eat the two that you see in the picture ;) Pineapple, mango, and coconut cupcakes…that's all I have to say! We definitely started the week off right with this photo shoot! Look for her in the June edition of Military Spouse Magazine!
3. Also found this meme the evening that I passed out:
4. I figured out the secret to perfectly toasted grilled cheese. Instead of butter, spread a thin a layer of mayonnaise over the bread, then attempt to heat it. The kids and I tried this while making Monterey Jack Cheese, guacamole, and tomato sandwiches. It worked :) It's amazing what one can learn by watching the Food Network :) Excuse the awful picture. I wasn't going for a quality photo in this shot.
5. Perhaps the best news of all this week…the news that beats losing a pant size, taking 11,000 steps, and a perfectly toasted grilled cheese…is that I was informed of an opportunity that could possibly come my way in the future. I had the chance to meet with the director of a local children's cooking class/program and talk with her about taking over her business. After discussing it with Husband Man, however, I am going to have to pass on this opportunity, due to the nature of his job. Our time at this base is almost up and this means orders soon. To where? I have not a clue. However, I do know that making a big commitment such as the one that was offered to me this weekend, requires stabilization. Which is something my family will not have until he retires. I am grateful for the chance to have met with her though because it has given me some ideas for possible future projects. Future projects that I will still be able to do while still living this military lifestyle.
And that, my friends, is how this week played out. Full of opportunities, new friendships, and sweet surprises! Wonder what this coming week will hold? Guess you'll have to keep reading to find out ;)
Till next time…..
