Worth the Wait

After almost 5 years together

he popped the question...

I am over the moon 
in love

The proposal was obviously a surprise and totally worth the wait.
I can't believe I get to share the rest of my life with this amazing man.

Now it's time to plan a wedding!

Ashley Meets Vegetables

I'm back on track eating healthy again!

Loading my plate with all kinds of veggie goodness
(shrimp and vegetable curry) 


 (stir fry)

The best way to get tasty veggies for little money
is the Whole Foods buffet

$5 for all this!

Crossed my first thing off of the FALL LIST 
this past weekend

Watch football with friends

and delicious food
including the best fish tacos ever

(my camera really makes this meal look terrible- but it was loaded with delicious)
HERE is the sauce recipe 

dinner was followed by equally delicious spiced pumpkin cookies
CLICK HERE for recipe

and of course no party is complete without puppies!

Thank you Shanna and Tyler for having me over!

World Vegetarian Day

Happy World Vegetarian Day!

I am proud to announce that I haven't eaten meat
for 2 years now
(if you don't count fish... and I don't)

I actually feel like it has been much longer-
but MY BLOG has confirmed that this decision was made in August of 2010.

It isn't really hard as it use to be.
Especially when I get my newsletters from the Farm Sanctuary

they remind me how much I love animals
and why I don't want to eat them.

And if you want to eat meat.
I'm ok with that too.

this my choice
and my small contribution
that's all.
