I cook A LOT. I love, love, love to cook and bake and make fun things for my family. But because of this I have worn out some of my kitchen appliances. Malak and I have a green smoothie (spinach, berries, bananas) every morning and apparently that's hard on a blender cause I've gone through 3 blenders in the last few years. Some of the blenders were crappy but the last one was a Cuisinart and last week while making our smoothies, there was black smoke pouring out of it and started melting. Woopsy daisies! So this week I got some fun new things from Kitchenaid! A food processor and blender. Woot!
Another fun purchase was made last night...
I know, I'm a real babe in this pic.
But let us focus on the fact that I have a SWEEEET camera in my hand! We got a Nikon 3000 and am pretty sure we're going to love it.
And of course, every girl has to have a pretty strap to make her camera look cool and original.
Random story: Today Mal and I were at the grocery store and a man walked up to us (after staring awkwardly for a long while)... We had this convo:
Him: Are you babysitting that boy?
Him: He's yours??
Him: I mean, is he really yours? Your actual kid?
Me: Yes. He is my "actual kid".
Him: But... Did he... You know... Come out of you? (He then points to his crotch)
(I am amazed and baffled and laughing because he actually felt the need to point to his crotch to ask this awkward question)
we have been married for 8 years and are still having a blast...the Lord has laid Africa on our hearts and so we adopted a baby boy from Ethiopia...it was a long journey, but the Lord has blessed us and our son with more love than we could have imagined! It is such an exciting time!
