Recaps Part 8: The Ceremony Part 1

Back to the recaps we go and we are now on to the ceremony!! I really wanted to be able to include all of the wording or at least parts. However our Pastor's computer crashed and burned and it was lost. :*( Can't wait until we get our video back from my Uncle so we at least have that. I do have some wording elements from the wedding but for the most part, they were lost. Anyways, enjoy!

My Granddad and Mom walked me down the "aisle".

This arbor and the urns with flowers were not planned and were added by surprise...pleasant the owner of the bed and breakfast where we were married! It took my breath away when I saw it!
My brother from another mother and Pastor Leonce doing his thing...preaching!
We had some rain drops. Thankfully there were only a few and they felt so good when they hit my shoulders! I thanked the Lord for crying tears of joy but asked that He refrain from pouring.

Stay tuned for part two of the ceremony recaps in the days ahead!

Tasty Tuesday's

So this is a day late (man I'm not getting off to a good start)! I'm very sorry. Yesterday was a very busy day for me. My mom flew back into town from a trip to Boston after being there for over a week and Charles and I picked her up from the air port. While she was gone her air conditioning unit died so last night I helped her install two window units in the house to help temporarily until the big unit gets replaced. I promise to do better from here on out!!!

For the first post in my new series I bring you a quick and easy recipe that Charles and I love!!

Easy Parmesan Garlic Chicken
1/2 Cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
1 Envelope Italian Salad Dressing Mix
1/2 tsp. Garlic Powder
6 Boneless Skinless Chicken Breasts

Mix cheese, salad dressing mix and garlic powder together in a shallow dish. Moisten chicken (if not moist from juices) with water; coat chicken with cheese mixture. Place in a shallow baking dish (9x13 works well) and bake at 400 degrees for 20-25 minutes or until chicken is cooked through. Makes six servings.

This chicken is incredibly moist and delicious! It's perfect with salad and a baked potato or also great with long grain wild rice!
