Next I know this may sound very very silly but my AMAZING fiance surprised me last night with a foodsaver vacuum sealer just talk about how silly undomesticated I am but I just love this...

You wonder how all this came about I am sure why would we just randomly get one well here is the story...
We found this meet market with fresh me that is leaner about 10-15 minutes outside of town if that (just depending on traffic) and we were going to get some meat for burgers and they package ground beef in 9-10 lbs. bags and higher up... well compared to Wal-Mart across the street for 1lb. you pay $3 and change so this is definitely a deal because we payed $25 for 10lbs. I couldn't complain and the man told us to save money so they don't break it down smaller to buy a vacuum sealer... So of course J and I did some research online last night then he left and came back with a better one than I thought he was going to get but I can't complain it is amazing... Plus in the deal I got a Paula Dean red cute scale so I love it too... But here is an image of the sealer we got that I already cut bags and packaged meat and am totally in love with!!!

Mine is the one in the back its a larger model than I thought but once we buy the canisters and the marinating canister so this helps with marinating which of course I'll love because I love to marinate and I love whenever J grills for me so ya'll will have to let me know if ya'll have one and how they work for you!

Well now I am off to clean this apartment and get ready for a yummy dinner with J...

He started in a new section today and we were both very very excited...

I hate saying this and maybe I'm saying it because I need advice on how to encourage him and help him keep his head up because these men should be like a team and they certainly fall short of that. There is a huge lack of encouraging and they are just rude and mean sorta like catty girls... I just wish I knew how to help him but this other section seems like such nicer guys and that they will be so much better for him so everyone keep us in your prayers as we get used to this adjustment and J has a better support system through these new members of his new team!

Thanks ya'll!
