Saturday, Jon and I made daquiri’s and they were delicious! We always have fun in the kitchen, whether I’m doing what I do or when he’s in there showing me he knows his way around around as well. I’ve never made a daquiri before so I wasn’t sure what type of alcohol to add. Apparently, “Jack Daniels is the best ‘hands down‘”, as he says. It was kind of strong. but that’s the way he likes it so I obliged.


Last night, I needed a little “pick-me-up” after working overtime so I reved up the blender, added Barefoot Moscato and more strawberries along with kiwis and gave it a go. My mixture made it even more delectable. Jon had no choice but to acknowledge such.


I still reign supreme in the kitchen.

Carla: 2 – Jon: 1

It’s moments like these that I cherish and value. The simple things like tasting concoctions off of spoons and fingertips. Every chance I can get to make a memory to add to my life’s archives, I leap at the opportunity. He’s an amazing individual. It’s been a wonderful 6-1/2 months with this guy and I’m looking forward to what else is in store. He has the ability to genuinely make me happy and I try my best to do the same. We’re a team—a duo—always supporting and uplifting each other.

    From luncheons and dinner dates at Chili’s and Kona Grill, to eating lunch that we bring to each other in the parking lot of our jobs..
    From matinees to see Unknown and XMen: First Class to Red Box movies and Dijorno pizzas and his homemade taco pies..

Late nights and Early Mornings..

I value it all.
