Last week my fantastic parents decided to take us to the D-backs game! Woo hoo! Lots of fun and delicious treats .. even though I missed out on the large cookie. We were in the nose bleeds and had a good time! For some reason we ended up going on the same night that a conservative 'support AZ' group went. I am mad I didn't take a picture- they had this sign that was supposed to say ...WE 'HEART' AZ but you couldn't see the heart sign so it just looked like they were holding a sign that said WEAZ, which made me laugh out loud the entire night, after just typing that out I am now realizing that it isn't that funny. hmmm..All of the pics of me and Cody turned out blurry.
These two lovebirds are my amazing parents who took us! Thanks again guys! Don't I have the cutest parents in the world, look at them with their matching Diamond Backs shirts. Ha ha
Well hello sister Dee and Bro in law Michael! .. I apologize for this semi strange photo of you now being posted on my blog.
This was an entirely different day but I couldn't help posting it. Mack LOVES dogs so I thought I would take him to the pet store in the mall. He loved it. He tried to get every dogs attention by banging on the glass, laughing at them, yelling at them, and dancing for them! Um hi, does anyone even buy dogs at the mall? They are like a billion dollars, not that we are in the market for a dog, but I'm pretty sure we wont pay anywhere near what they are asking. ...now half a billion, .. . . .

Secret Treasures Divulged

Bountiful Basket is my recent find that I am obsessing over!!! Seriously! You pay 15 dollars and they give you a ginormous amount of fresh produce! Half is fruit and half is vegetables. Whoever thought of this is genius. Ever single week the produce changes according to what farmers have a surplus of. - I love being surprised with new items each week and I love trying new things. This week I got:

2 coconuts
large bag of grapes
10 crunchy and very delicious apples
large bunch of bananas
huge cantaloupe
Stalk of celery
Bunch of lettuce
Tons of green beans
8 tomatoes
8 red potatoes
head of broccoli
I have never eaten more fresh fruits and vegis in my life! Go check this out at bountifulbasket.org!

Summer Corn Fettuccine

The last month of school was rough. I didn't see a lot of Cody and so our cooking nights were put on hold. Summer has brought the return of those nights! I love any excuse to cook delicious fatty food! Last week we created this little gem - Summer corn fettuccine! I don't even need to say how good it was because the picture says it all. We cooked fresh corn, cut it off the cob, and then blended it to create a delicious creamy corn sauce. The highlight of this dish is the fresh dill, bacon, and fresh parmigiana. My mouth is watering.
I think I might be the only person who actually tries recipes off of other people's blogs, so I wont include it. If you do want it though, just leave a comment.

4 years.. andacoupleweeks

On May 16th me and Cody celebrated our 4 year anniversary! Crazy. I love this man more today than I did 4 years ago. He is amazing and I am the luckiest girl in the world. We spent our anniversary going out to dinner and seeing a movie. It was so nice to relax. 4 years is such a long time. I am old.

Overdue

A couple weeks ago me, Cody, and Mack headed over to San Diego for a few days. It was so nice to relax after this past semester!! We stayed at Brerrin's house (my Uncle Brian and Aunt Errin) and lived it up for a few days. Mikallela sp? Errin's friend was nice enough to watch Mack for a day so me and Code could party by ourselves in... you guessed it, Disneyland. It was absolutely beautiful! Hardly any lines at all and it stayed around 60ish all day with a very light drizzle once during the day!

While we were there we dinned at the Blue Bayou and split the Monte Cristo sandwich that I have heard so much about, but never tried. We both fell in love and will be recreating it soon... Ham, Turkey, and Swiss sandwich, deep fried to crispy perfection and served with a tart red jelly of sorts. mmmm....
These pictures are all so bad because like a fool I forgot batteries for our little camera.. so these are cell phone pics.

Of course Mack loved the beach, it had all of his favorite things: Birds. Sand. Water. Space to run.

He kept us on our toes because he loved to walk straight into the waves (no fear) and then got mad and screamed when they knocked him over.
