I have a new favorite, delicious snack. Angel, my mother-in-law, is in town visiting and she made it for me the other day. The combination of ingredients seems a little strange but I LOVE it and I have been craving it ever since. Plus it's really simple and easy:

Includes only 4 ingredients:
  • Bread
  • Butter
  • Honey
  • Garlic gloves

Toast a slice of bread (We used a loaf of vienna bread, but anything will work). Spread butter and honey on it. You can either use a garlic press and spread the garlic, or just chop as much as you want, and enjoy :)

Side note: Since I have been sick the past week with WHO KNOW'S WHAT, the garlic is supposed to help support the immune system with antioxidants and it enhances the body's immune cell activity. Not to mention it's delicious!
Just a little fun fact for the day :)

For the past month and a half that we have been in Chicago we have been bumming internet from our neighbor. Either they moved or caught on because it is no longer working. Since we leave in less than two weeks, we are just dealing with not having it. Therefore, I will not be blogging for about two weeks or so, unless I find internet other places. (like work, which is where I am right now) I have no clue how many people read my blog, but just letting those of you who do know. Ta ta!

I have been looking through my wedding pictures lately and, sadly, they make me so irritated. Not that the pictures were bad, but I really, really, REALLY hated my dress. I'm just going to take this time to vent. (s0 if you don't want to here me complain than I wouldn't suggest reading this post) First of all, if you need to buy a dress with sleeves, buy it in Utah. I did a big no-no by buying my dress in California. I loved the dress I bought, but it was a tube top. The lady that helped us at the bridal store said that they have a seamstress that puts sleeves on dresses for Mormon weddings all the time. SO, I felt comfortable with her adding on sleeves. I met with the seamstress and we talked about what I wanted and I brought pictures in and everything. I felt totally comfortable with her and she seemed to totally get what I wanted. So I left it up to her. (keep in mind we only had about 3 1/2 months to plan a wedding, so we didn't have much time) I was still in school at this time so I was up in Utah while my dress was being altered in California. She scheduled the first fitting about a month after we had first met, which worked out great because that was a weekend I was going to be in town. When I get to her house, NOTHING was done. She needed to take my measurments, so we did that and scheduled another appointment. (this time I thought for sure she would be done with it) Was I wrong? Yes. I get there for the second "fitting" and she still doesn't have it done!!! By this time I have already moved back home because school is out and the wedding was in less than two months, so I couldn't go look for a new dress in Utah. I was so frustrated. To cut to the chase, by the time she was finished with my dress, (which was like a week before the wedding) it was the ugliest thing I have ever seen. The sleeves didn't match the color of my dress AT ALL and they were huge and just so ugly. I cried for like two days. BUT I really couldn't do anything about it. We had already spent money on my dress and getting it fitted and there was no time to go to Utah to buy another dress. So i had to deal with it. It just makes me so angry every time I think about it.

HOWEVER, when I really put things into perspective, I realize what that day was really about. It was about me and Branson being sealed together for all of time and eternity. Even though I didn't look how I wanted on my wedding day, I have the rest of my life to spend with my best friend. So I guess that makes up for it. :)

Atleast one of us looked good ;) Isn't he handsome?

On a side note, B and I had SO much fun at our wedding. Besides the wedding dress mishap, it was such a memorable day with the people we love, and we couldn't have asked for anything better.
