This last week was so busy! On Tuesday we started packing up all our things to move out of our old, moldy, not so nice apartment and into our new, bigger and soo very nice apartment! It took us all of Tues. Wed. and Thursday night until 12:30am to get everything out of our old one and into our new one! I am now pleased to say, we are all moved in and almost all unpacked! We absolutely love our new place! Here's a few pictures of our apartment from the website:

We have a long way to go before it looks furnished like those pictures but we are well on our way to making it like a home. One of the things we did right away was buy a sofa and a love seat. For those of you that have been to our old apartment, know that our old sofa was, sad to say, not a sofa at all! But a love seat! It was so small and resembled that of a child couch. Small even for a love seat. Well, we have gotten rid of that little thing and graduated to bigger and better things. This is our new sofa and love seat!

I love it so much! Don't care for the accent pillows that came with it, but I will be replacing those soon with new colored ones.

The Lord has blessed us so much this year. This apartment was totally from the Lord! We had been praying and praying that the Lord would give us a great deal on it and He did! He did better then we could of ever imagined. We were praying that the Lord would give it to us at a certain price and He gave it to us way less then what we were even asking! I love how He always provides for our every need.

Another way that He provided last week was He brought someone to buy my broken down car! Earlier in the week we had someone inquiring about it and Thursday night we were praying that we would be able to sell it by this weekend. It has been sitting in my parents front yard for 7 months now and we both really wanted to just get rid of it. So Friday morning I get a call from my dad saying that the guy who is doing the granite for the bathrooms wants to buy it. A totally different guy then the one inquiring about it earlier in the week. So we drove down to my parents with the keys, he looks at it and says he wants to buy it! Thank you Lord! We had just prayed the night before and sold it the next morning! Wow! And if that's not enough. My birthday was last Sunday and I got a very generous gift from my new grandma (Daniels grandma). Praise the Lord for that! We can now buy some very needed furniture for our new place! And because I have such wonderful family and friends, I had a very memorable birthday weekend! Not to mention a wonderful husband who took me shopping and to have sushi for dinner!

Yet again the Lord has provided so abundantly for me. He has given me a new home, money to furnish it, wonderful family and friends and an amazing husband. I owe all I have to the Lord. I am so grateful to Him for all He does for me.

Quick and Easy Huevos Rancheros!

Ingredients you'll need:

2 Tomatoes Diced
1 Onion Diced
Corn Tortillas
4 Eggs
Beans (Homemade or Med. Can of refried)

Make the sauce first by softening the onions and tomatoes with a little olive oil in a large skillet on medium heat. When tomatoes are softened take your spoon or spatula and smash them. Add water to the pan (about 1 cup). When adding the water make sure you add a little at a time, because you don't want to make it to watery, so if you don't need the whole cup that's OK. After the water then add salt and pepper, I don't have measurements for this, because I just do it by taste. And then a pinch of garlic. Then let simmer for about 8 mins.

While the sauce is simmering, heat a small pan of oil and fry each corn tortilla like you would for a tostada. And heat up beans in a sauce pan (I add a little milk to make them more creamy).

When the tortillas are done, cook over easy or over medium egg. I do one at a time because I'm not that good at flipping them;). When the egg is done, place a tortilla on a plate, put the egg over the tortilla and pour your sauce on top of that and finish the plate off with some beans on the side and you got yourself some quick and easy huevos rancheros! Mmm This makes about 4 servings.

And so it begins...

What begins you might say? Well, a new page in this book I like to call "Life". Recently I was married to the love of my life and best friend. It was a sweet, country backyard wedding. Many of those that I love we're a part of it and I couldn't have asked for more love and support from my family and friends. But most importantly the Lord was there! It was a perfect wedding to say the least!
For the first time ever I moved out of my parents home and into a new home with my husband. And I must say that these last 5 months have been more wonderful then I could have ever imagined! Being a wife is what I was called to do. I love every minute of it. I really enjoy cooking, mainly because I love to eat! I come from a huge Hispanic family and food is what brings us together. My family is that family that has tons of food no matter what the occasion. You better come to my house hungry cause if you don't just know that one of the woman will insist you eat and won't take no for an answer. Within minutes there will be a huge plate of food in front of you! In most families the moms are the cooks but not in my family, my dad is the cook and a great one at that! I am determined to walk in his footsteps. Other things I love are: Coffee, seasons, fireplaces, anything romantic, anything Vintage and Handmade. Weddings, home decor or decorating in general. Fashion, shoes! I love shoes. Reading. I love the smell of dirt right after it rains and how the rain makes the hills so green. Oh green, it's my favorite color. I love eating cereal at night with my husband. My husband is my favorite person and I love how he can always make me smile. I love the way he smells, it's my favorite smell in the whole world. I love the sound of a babies laugh and cry. I cannot wait to be a mother. I have wanted to be a mom since I knew what one was! And above all that, I love my Lord. I love the way that He loves me and laid down His life for me. He truly is wonderful in all that He does.
In the last year I have had so many blessings come my way, and one of the biggest blessings just happened! My husband has been a Pastor in training at our church (Harvest) for almost a year now, but 2 weeks ago they made him an official Pastor! I can't express to you enough how proud I am of him and how overwhelmed with joy I am with all that the Lord is doing. We are so amazed that the Lord be so gracious to us and call us into such a high calling. I'm so happy to be walking alongside my husband as we do the Lords work together. It has been our hearts desire to do full time ministry. I pray that I will be all that God has called me to be, that I will strive for holiness and be that Proverbs 31 women. I know that the Lord has wonderful plans for our lives and I am looking forward to where the Lord will have us in the years to come. So please sit and stay awhile as I blog about all the people/things I love.

Love Me
