This weekend I'm getting both alone time and girl time! My husband is on a trip to Arizona with his grandpa so I'll be catching up on cleaning and reading at home AND enjoying some wine with my small group girlfriends and hanging out with my friend, Jennifer. I'm pretty pumped! Please pray for Kevin and Grandpa Bill - they're on a 17 hour roadtrip and then Kevin flies back on Monday. I'm sure going to miss him!
I recently found this amazing recipe for Crockpot Honey Sesame Chicken! Kevin and I LOVED it! It kind of tastes like chinese food from the mall food court but waaaay better and you know what's in it! No MSG, not fried, no extra hormones. We served it with white rice.
This one is about food too! Even better....DESSERT! For Valentine's Day, I made stuffed chicken breasts, jalapeno cheddar mashed potatoes, asparagus AND red velvet molten lava cake for dessert. It was delicious!

I want to share a little about an organization that I love and support! Crystal, the executive director, is one of the most compassionate, go-get-em, driven people I know. She worked with the International Justice Mission in the Philippines before helping run My Refuge House, a ministry that helps provide a safe home to empower and restore survivors of commercial sexual expoitation and abuse. Kim, my friend and fellow IBCer (Irving Bible Church) just became MRH's Director of Engagements as well! Congrats Kim!
Visit the website! Pray for the work they are doing! I will share more about this in another post someday!
Just so you know...it's almost baseball season!!!! Woo hoo!!! Kevin gets to go to a Spring Training Rangers game this weekend and I'm jealous. We're ready for the season to start! GO RANGERS!!
