L'Oreal Youth Code

This stuff is great! Its the first thing to get rid of the circles under my eyes. Its also been improving the texture of both my skin and Daniel's. I can't say much about looking younger, since I hardly have wrinkles yet. But I am hoping that it will be good preventative measure.

Comes out in January!

Fried Chicken and Macaroni and Cheese

I tried my hand at southern cooking for my husband yesterday: made fried chicken for sunday evening dinner. Not only did I try two new recipes, I also had two friends over for dinner. Oops.

The macaroni and cheese turned out ok, I wasn't pleased with the result, but Daniel assured me it tasted great. I just like my cheese mixed in more.

The fried chicken....

The coating was bland, and (having never fried anything before) I had no idea how long it would take. I didn't cook it long enough to get cooked to the bone, so I served my friends and husband raw chicken with a crispy coating.

The Joys of Teaching

I love the kids I teach. "Miss Greta, when you get married, do we have to call you Mrs. Greta?"

God is Good

I am getting married! At what point does it ever sink in? When do I feel old enough to have my own house and a husband? For 21 years I've lived with my parents, and for almost as long as I can remember, I've been in school. In 4 and a half months, all that will change. Thank goodness God never changes! And thank goodness He convinced me to attend college and to marry Daniel! God is good.
