I wish I would have known then what I know now...

Ok for those of you who dont know I teach high school Sunday school at church and have lately been trying to push the point that their elders really do have some good advice to give. I promised each week I would give them a little nugget of life wisdom...and this is where you come in. I have some of my own to share but I am wondering....

What do you wish someone would have told you back then that would have helped you out in life?
Or maybe what is something that someone did tell you that you wish you would have listened to?

Please, these girls need good advice and I would love to hear what you have to say :)!! Thanks.

Fun Food...

Ok, so I have seen Natalie post quite a few cute little baking ideas and decided to give one a try. However, I believe in the picture she posted it used muffin tops for the buns, but i decided to go with simple sugar cookies due to the time and convenience factors.

I have included a picture below...they were a huge hit at the bar-b-cue!
I also took with me ice cream sandwiches. I got this idea out of Cosmo, and it was such an excellent idea. This dessert is super simple and oh so Delicious!! I simply took vanilla ice cream, let it cool for about 20 minutes till I could spread it on a cookie, topped it with another cookie, and rolled the sides in chocolate sprinkles. Just make sure you give them about 2 hours to freeze before serving.

Down Range

My wonderful husband gave me a gun for my wedding present back in October, but since he has had such a busy schedule I've been unable to shoot the gun since. However, this weekend was all "us" time and we spent this morning out in the wash shooting at targets. Lets just say hes got an up on me with all his training, but I didnt do too shabby either. He had me doing tactical drills and all in case Im ever somewhere and encounter a threat! Hes the best husband ever, and I know he cares more about my safety than most other things, so it was really fun that he spent his Saturday equipping me with the necessary skills. This blog is more representative of my life than anyone could possibly realize...and well that makes me laugh.

Here we are in our ear protection ready to fight :)!!
