Georgia got the memo about fall. The first official day of fall and the clouds and rain didn’t go away all day! Carl was sad, I was thrilled! Welcome back oatmeal breakfasts and goodbye my favorite roasted tomato pastas!
My last batch for one of my favorite summer pastas: Summer Pasta with Roasted Tomatoes.
I had the most wonderful experience this weekend at the Ranger Wives Spouses Retreat. It was a day filled with yoga, classes on what makes your Ranger tick, bonding and spending time with other wives of guys Q works with. I cannot even begin to tell you how special these women are and how I instantly felt “in” with them. In Alaska, I never really had that group of women to laugh with and vent to, and within four months of being in the south, I’ve found them!
We got the most special wedding gift from our friends Ali and Stu, a commissioned painting of Carl! It makes Q and I laugh so much and we can’t wait to put it up in the house! PS the artist who did it is Chris Harden.
Oh we casually looked at a house TO BUY this weekend. It didn’t work out, but I kind-of-sort-of felt like a real adult! The Army life makes it difficult to buy a home since we move every 3 years and if you can’t find renters or sell your house, it can become a huge financial burden. So we are waiting for the perfect place to purchase whether it be here or our next duty station.
Isn’t it charming?
I highly recommend these S’mores Bars… I made them for Q over the weekend and let’s just say they didn’t last until Monday (or even Sunday night).
And one last precious Carl picture for your Tuesday!
