Honorary Colombian!

Tonight was my first attempt at making arepas all by myself, well mostly by myself. I have a wonderful soux chef and arepa sensei, Magda! We had a lot of fun and my Arepas Repletas de Queso turned out beautifully! Arepas are a traditional Colombian food made from precooked corn meal; masa. They can be filled with cheese, meat or chicken, or just plain. I am very proud of my arepas and Andres really liked them...Magda even said I make arepas like Colombian people...ha ha!

Millie Update

The diagnosis was confirmed, Millie had lymphoma. She was very sick and in a lot of pain. My parents had to put her to sleep last week. It was a hard time for all of us, as we lost a member of our family. Love you, Millie.

The Countdown Has Begun...

It has been a while since I have written...I have only been a little preoccupied with 12 hours of grad school, wedding plans, working at Tyler Junior College, statewide conference for educators of the deaf, and babysitting little Jack...slightly full plate.

Well, we are only 13 days from our wedding! WOW. It is hard to believe, I can't wait! Andres' mom is flying in on Thursday evening...he is so ready to see her, it has been 5 years. She will be staying with us for 10 days...I am really excited to witness the reunion!

On a sad note, my parent's dog (Dad and Brenda), Millie, has been diagnosed with cancer. We are very sad but know that she is here for a very specific purpose. She is just as much a member of our family as any of us. Please say a prayer for her.

I will try and update more often as I find interesting tidbits of life to share and then find the time to post it up. Love ya'll!
