I think I'm finally done with this blogging thing for the night - but just had to post the fun recipe I tried out on my sister and her family the other night. It turned out good and reminded me of summer - you'll have to try it!! =)

Chicken with Peach and Melon Salsa

  • 1 (15-ounce) can peach halves, drained and rinsed
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 4 teaspoons Jamaican Jerk seasoning
  • 1 cup pre-cut melon medley, diced
  • 1 tablespoon diced pimientos
  • 1 tablespoon freshly chopped cilantro leaves
  • 1 tablespoon lime juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt


Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat.

Place peaches halves on grill pan and grill 2 to 3 minutes per side. Set aside to cool and then dice into small pieces.

Season both sides of each chicken breast with 1 teaspoon Jamaican jerk seasoning. Place chicken breasts in pan and grill for 6 minutes per side, or until cooked through.

Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine grilled peaches and remaining ingredients. Stir thoroughly.

Serve chicken topped with peach and melon salsa.

Ok - so call me totally cheesy - I have no idea who these happy people are - I just saw this picture on a photography website and had to snag it.... this is my DREAM wedding bouquet! I love calla lilies - isn't it beautiful?!?
What fun boys! I got to watch Collin's basketball practice and his first game while I was in Vegas. Way to go Cols! Grant climbed up and over the climbing wall at the park! Very impressive. I had so much fun doing puzzles and reading books and just hanging out with these guys.

Katelyn tried this hat on while we were bargain shopping at Target. There were a bunch of toys for 75% off... Chad got a fun skeet ball game that everyone loved for such a great deal! Kates is so cute and fun to chat with - we had a few moments to ourselves where I got a full glimpse of her personality. Some very cute things come out of her mouth.... =)

What a happy kid! It was so much fun to hop on I-15 and head down to Vegas for a few days to see my sister. Ben smiles with his mouth WIDE open and never stops. He is always smiling! I miss him already. He even smiled while he was sick and throwing up.

I had such a fun day spending Christmas with my sister Becky and her family. They made me feel so welcome! I was able to spend a few days in Rexburg too and got some pictures of my brother's cute kids!

About Me

I am excited to have my own blog and be able to record fun and memorable things here to share..... I am currently working at a new job as of September of last year - I am the Ticket Office Manager for the Events Department at Thanksgiving Point. I was ready to just have a fun, low stress job and it has been just that. I love going to work every day and being able to serve and interact with the public. I love all that Thanksgiving Point has to offer and enjoy being a part of it. I just moved into a new town home in March and have really been enjoying the area and the new ward I am in. I just got called to be the Enrichment Counselor in the Relief Society, which will keep me plenty busy I'm sure. I love to spend time with my family, my neices and nephews are so entertaining and I never get tired of playing with and spending time with them.
