Happy 6 month anniversary!

Today is our 6 month wedding anniversary! We celebrated with a Ravens win and a delicious meal at home. I made Bow Tie Pasta with a Tomato Cream sauce and Chicken Sausage. I used the following recipe from The dish was quite the hit! I will definitely add it to my growing list of good recipes. Alongside the pasta, I served roasted pole beans and foccacia bread, both purchased from the Green Market at the beach. I'm settling in for the evening with 60 minutes, The Amazing Race, and Mad Men (If I'm not snoozing on the couch by then!).

Why we should all clean out our wallets!

I got a big desire to organize this fine Friday evening. I decide to tackle all that unread mail and ended up shredding most of it. I also decided to clean out my wallet. What a bonanza in unused gift cards!! I found...

A Bed Bath & Beyond Gift Card with a balance of $10.01
An American Express Gift Card with a balance of $14.81
A Wiliams-Sonoma merchandise credit for $32.05

Holy Cow--I can't believe there was $56.87 just hanging around in my wallet! I plan to have a little fun with my new found "money" tomorrow!!
