Apple of my Eye

So instead of doing homework like a good little student would do,
I decided to blog.
We all need breaks, right?

Well I just wanted to share some super sweet/awesome things that happened this week.

I was at the grocery store with my little sister this week and I had this random craving for apples.
Now, I am not a big fan of apples.
I can't even remember the last time I had an apple previously.
But I bought a few apples and took them home and was excited to eat them.

Well on Monday, the title of Hunter's email was, "Hello from apple world!"
{Apparently it's something only Spongebob watchers would get.}
Anyways, he talked about how this past week he ate a ton of apples!

Say whaaaat?

The same week I decide to have an apple craving, Hunter decides to eat apples all week.
Strangely coincidental, don't you think?

I also emailed Hunter and told him something along the lines of:
"How do you expect me to survive two years without pictures of your handsome face?!"
{He hasn't sent pictures in a few weeks.}

His response?
"Wanna know something cool? I knew that you would be thinking that and so this week... I took lots of pictures:) We are so in sync:)" 
He sent 8 or so picture of his handsome tan face!

6,000 + miles apart and we still think the same.
I guess we really are on the same page!

I was so excited on Monday because of these events, so I decided to take a picture...
With an apple.
I normally don't take pictures with fruit, but this was a special occasion;)

"You're the apple of my eye, and I love you so and I want you to know that I'll always be right here."

Avocado Chicken Salad Sandwiches

This chicken salad was SOOO dang good.
I always see yummy recipes on Pinterest, but rarely find the time to make anything!
 If you catch yourself saying the same thing, you just have to make this chicken salad.

Now normally, I'm not the biggest fan of chicken salad.
There is always a ton of mayonaise and lots of eggs.

But this recipe is seriously just AMAZING.

Please try it.
Please :)
I'm not the biggest fan of crust...
  •  2-3 pieces of boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 avocado
  • 1/2 of an onion 
{The recipe called for 1/4, but I added extra!}
  • Juice of one small lime
 {Recipe called for 1/2, but a whole one added a lot more flavor}
  • 2 tbsp cilanto
  • Salt & Pepper
Cook the chicken, shred it, mix-in the other ingredients, and that's it!

Lovely Weekend

This weekend was lovely! My sister and brother-in-law were in town! 
This is them!

Pretty cute, huh? 

I love when they come to visit.
Our family feels so much more complete with them here.
We watched movies, ate junk food, ate yummy food, and had a surprise birthday party for my brother who turns 26 on the 16th!
 We had a good time! 
And there was ice cream cake, what could be better than that?

I also got to babysit this sweet girl, and two adorable twin boys! {Hunter's cousins!}
I LOVE them so dang much.
They seriously melt my heart!

I also watched this cute pup while Hunter's family was out of town!
For those of you who don't know, I am not the biggest fan of animals...
They make me itchy, I might be allergic, but I'm not really sure.
But I let Taco in my bed and he cuddled with me all night:) 
Oh and I almost killed their poor fish...
By accident of course. But it's still alive! So yay!

Oh and it was cold enough to wear a scarf this weekend!
I was stoked, and I found a super cute scarf holder on clearance at Target.
I love that place.

 I also sent Hunt his Halloween card, so hopefully the Brazilian mail strike stops soon...

Happy-halfway-through-October! :)
