Yesterday was the anniversary of our engagement. We aren't huge on anniversaries, but this being our first big thing, we celebrating by...roasting marshmallows! Joel proposed to me when we were roasting marshmallows in the fireplace. He put the ring on the skewer and handed it to me, so when I took the skewer, the ring fell off in my hand!

I liked this picture of Joel:

I also made this thumbprint cookies. Joel LOVED them, and this evening they were all gone! So I made another batch.

(1 c. butter, 1/3 sugar/Splenda, 1 tsp vanilla, 1 c. flour, 1 egg. Mix all the ingredients, then roll into balls. Make a thumbprint that you can fill with jelly. I used blackberry jelly and some with honey. The honey isn't as pretty but it's delicious.)

I made them about 30 minutes ago and there are....6 left.

This evening I also took a Zoomba and a Belly Dancing class at the Y. It was a-mazing. I loved it. Especially Zoomba because the Lord blessed me with some hips and I need to learn how to move them.

Next up: homemade salsa, classroom frustrations, classroom victories. Stay tuned!

Hey Dom! Those cookies look delicious! I took a Zoomba class with Ashley Crutchfield from church (she loves them!) and it IS fun! Belly dancing sounds great too. And your hips are fine; if you want to see hips just look at mine!!
