New Adventures

I realize it has been way too long since I have been on our blog and that i've missed so much going on in everyone's life! Here is just a quick update with our lives... ready, set, go! Roger has now been in the nursing program for three semesters now and is working so hard. I am the proudest wife. When he is not studying he is either searching the internet for a new handgun or stealing me away to go out shooting. He has also been dieting, has lost almost 20 pounds, and looks GREAT! As for me, my prayers were answered and I finally got a job! I know manage married/community housing apartments called Central Park Apartments and I really do love it. I have also lost weight, I am feeling great and trying to keep busy. I will post pictures of our new place soon... I would now but as Roger would say "Oh.. I guess it's arts and craps time!" Haha (which means I have my craft supplies out and its taking over the living room and kitchen). Hope all those wonderful mothers out there are enjoying Mother's Day! WE have the best moms in our lives and we are truly grateful.

These Days

Pinterest has definitely become a game changer in my life. I have been making crafts like crazy and trying out new recipes. I might be enjoying this free time a little. I have a few job interviews lined up and I HOPE something comes up soon. For now, I'll keep getting up at the crack of dawn and shoveling snow at our complex. Roger has enjoyed (or at least pretends to enjoy) my craft making... besides the fact that it takes over the entire living room. He is dong great at school and it's keeping him very very busy. He has planned out the rest of his schooling here and the end looks like it's in sight. He still spends any free time either outside shooting or watching a favorite T.V. show like House, Top Shot, or Psych (both activities I usually get roped into ;) ).

Pesto Chicken Stuffed Shells
original Joelen recipe

12-16 jumbo pasta shells
water for boiling pasta
4oz cream cheese, softened
1 cup freshly grated Parmesan or Asiago cheese + 1/4 cup for topping
3 tablespoons prepared pesto (homemade or store bought)
2 cups shredded cooked chicken
2 cloves garlic, minced
salt and pepper to taste

In a large pot over high heat, boil water and prepare pasta shells as directed on package. Cook pasta shells only until al dente. The pasta will finish cooking when the dish is baked. Drain the pasta shells and set aside.

In a large bowl, combine the rest of the ingredients, except the 1/4 cup of cheese for the topping. Fill the pasta shells with the filling and place in a baking dish.  Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 cup of cheese over filled shells. 

Preheat oven to 350 degrees and bake shells uncovered for 30 minutes or until shells are bubbling hot and cheese melts.

This is definitely the warmest and driest winter I have ever spent in Rexburg and I am loving it. I am still looking for a job and still occasionally work as a snow crew removal lead for my apartment complex, Woohoo! Roger thinks I am living the life! Haha. I did want to post and (brag a little bit) about the few craft things I have made this week. I am lovin' my sewing machine. Thanks again mom!  Roger & I are having a V-Day celebration with friends tonight. Very excited. I will post pictures later! Enjoy! :)
