Good Times



My first anniversary was a blast. We made the ride down to Gastonia to see the folks. Luckily we made it in time to see Grandma and Grandpa Brown for a bit. Virginia had her Father's Day card in hand for Grandpa Ford. He was all smiles when he saw Virginia holding the card. Virginia managed to resist eating the card for maybe a minute. After getting settled in, Mom and Dad were super nice and agreed to watch Virginia while Reiggin and I enjoyed a night out. I forgot how nice it is to have a dinner with Reiggin and not have to stuff food down my throat before Virginia gets wild. We decided to go to Olive Garden. Man the food was awesome and enjoying a meal baby free with Reiggin was even better. I did feel a little strange like I was missing something without Virginia sitting beside me. After stuffing our faces we checked in with the folks to make sure Virginia was good. I know I am so paronoid it is sad. She was fine and enjoying a nice rock on the porch with Mom. We headed on up to the movies to get tickets for The Hangover. We decided to kill time and go to Walmart. I just can't help myself in Walmart I go straight for the baby section and the toy section. Reiggin laughed at me and said on our anniversary we are looking at baby toys. The movie was great I had not laughed so hard in a theater in a long time. After the movie we made a quick stop at Krispy Kreme for some yummy doughnuts. That made for a nice end to our anniversary day. We picked up Virginia and luckily she was playing happily in between Mom's legs. So with sleepily eyed Virginia snoozing in the back seat while we rode home I thought to myself I am one lucky girl, beautiful daughter and a loving husband.

Happy Anniversary!




WARNING Super mushy and cute post coming your way!!!!!

I can't believe it has been a year since I said I Do to Reiggin. The year has flown by. I am so thankful for having such a caring and loving husband like Reiggin. He has been great this whole year dealing with the first year of marriage and also having a baby. He has stepped up and really been the leader that I have needed. I just want to say thank you to him for working so hard and allowing me to stay at home and take care of Virginia. I know I can be a pain sometimes and moody, but he has stuck it out. We have had some great times this year. I can't wait to see what the future has in store for us. I just know that as long as you are by my side I can tackle any challenges. I love you honey!

Kathy in the Kitchen!


Well lately I have been trying to be a better cook. My past cooking record has not been the best. I have left melted spatulas and smoke filled kitchens in my past. I found AllRecipe.com, this great recipe site a long time ago, but never really made good use of it. Now I have started to pick one recipe every week to try. This week I made this great chicken casserole recipe. This recipe was simple and quick. I mean when I can make it and not burn down my house you know it is simple. I even got great reviews from Reiggin. Thought I would share the recipe with you guys. Also to update people on my fingernail biting challenge. Well I have had a set back, but I am starting back strong.

P.S. I used cream of mushroom soup instead of cream of chicken soup. Also I would use less stuffing mix. Two cups was a little too much stuffing for me. Enjoy!

The Battle Begins

You all know that I bite my fingernails like crazy. This drives many people nuts. My dad use to always say," did you not get enough to eat." My sister Susan thinks it is the nasty thing ever. Reiggin hates the fact I bite my nails also. I have also been wanting to grow my nails out a little longer so I can paint them. Sunday, Reiggin dared me to grow my nails out long. The bet is that I have to grow my nails out a good length. If I do this then I get to pick out a purse of my choice to buy. I have been dying to buy a new purse off of Etsy. I am hoping to be successful in this bet, but I have tried many times in the past to grow my nails. I think it is a combination of nervous habit and just me needing to be doing something with my hands at all times that makes me bite my nails. It has only been three days since the bet as started and already I feel myself wanting to bite my nails. You will laugh, but I will catch myself with my finger in my mouth and I have to slap myself and say no. I am determined to get a new purse. Wish me luck and I will keep you updated on my progress.
