My husband is one of the hardest workers that I've ever known (right up there with my own dad) and he is also a very talented wood worker. I atrribute this skill to a couple things: the first, a God-given talent and curiousity on how to take things apart and put them back together. The second attribution would be to his parents for allowing him to take those things apart and encouraging him in his interests. He has made several items for around our home and a few items for our families. Just recently, after much consideration, we decided to start selling some of his work. Being the perfectionist that he is, my hubby works extremely hard on making these items look like something that someone could buy in a store. I have included some pictures of these items. If anyone is interested in these items, message me or check them out at www.etsy.com/shop/mrssouza1. Yes, I am unashamedly promoting my husband's work but he's really that good.

Speaking of skills...I'm definitely working on my own. I used to be really good at school work and I was starting to be pretty good at teaching - all of these things I'm taking a sabatical from. So, with my other skills on hold for now, I'm developing new ones - cooking being one of them. I have taken to reading cook books, cooking magazines and blogs/websites. I've decided to take on this cooking deal as an adventure and I'm lucky to have a hubby that is willing to experiment with me. Last night's adventure in skill-making was homemade chicken alfredo fettuccini. And let me tell you...yum! I think my skill-set just went up a notch! I included the recipe and I encourage everyone to try it...alfredo fettucini is not the healthiest meal but it is a fav in our household so making it from scratch is slightly better for you than from the box.
What's for dinner tonight, you may ask? Another fav...Turkey BLT's. Super easy...made with turkey bacon for a healthier twist.
