One-dish, well rounded dinner!

I've been pinning like crazy (but really, who hasn't) and I can't cook to save my life! BUT I've been watching the Food Network and pinning (easy) recipes and hoping to learn a little bit in the kitchen. Well, I saw this little dinner on Pinterest and it just seem too easy (and good!) to be true!

4-6 raw chicken breasts
new potatoes
green beans (fresh or canned)

Arrange in a 9x13 dish (as shown or however you prefer)
Sprinkle with a packet of Italian dressing mix (the dry stuff!)
Top with a melted stick of butter

Cover and bake at 350 degrees for 1 hour

That's it! I just followed the instructions EXACTLY as described and it turned out amazing! Here's proof:

A honeymoon 9 months later - better late than never!

I'm so excited! So the hubby has been working extra hard and he managed to earn enough with his freelance gigs to book a 7 night stay in Cozumel! What's double sweet? Our vacation just so happens to land on our 6 year anniversary :) We got married in January but just didn't have the money for a "real" honeymoon but now we really get to go! I don't think it's really hit me yet to be honest... that probably won't happen until we're on the plane. lol

Well, my photography kind of feel to the wayside in the past few weeks. I happened to take my camera to our weekly family lunch and became inspired all over again! Here are a few shots from yesterday:

What do y'all think??

Well, I really need to get back on here and post more often! I really do miss you all! I read from time to time but my job has kept me busy. I promise to do better! lol Oh dang! Tomorrow I'll have to share with you the Pinterest dinner I made! I do NOT know how to cook one bit but this recipe was so easy and the hubby LOVED it! I felt like a good wife :)

Look forward to catching up!
