And cute as can be. Someone told me today that his name should be "cutie". I agree :)

This is OK, right?

As long as Noah wears a super hero mask, it's cool for him to dress up like a lady bug, right?

why can't anything ever be easy?

If you or anyone you know has ever prepared a Dossier, you know the HOURS that go into getting it ready. A few weeks ago we completed our Dossier and sent it into our agency. They then sent off all the documents to be authenticated.

And guess what? All of our notarized documents had an incorrect date. Yay! (that was sarcastic). So now we get to redo all of those documents and send them back to our agency. We are looking at about a 3 week delay because of this one little mistake.

I used to let these little mishaps dictate my attitude. But you know what? We have been in this process for over 2 years now. What's 3 more weeks?

black bean brownies anyone?

Why yes please, don't mind if I do.

I cannot promise that this recipe is healthy, but it is gluten free and amazingly delicious. That counts for something, right?

2 cups black beans
3 eggs
1/3 cup melted butter
1/4 cup cocoa powder
2 teaspoons vanilla
1 cup sugar

Put all ingredients into blender

Once well blended pour all ingredients into 8" greased square pan

Sprinkle 1/2 cup (or more if you are like me) dark chocolate chips over top

Bake at 350 degrees for 40-50 minutes until done in center.
You can thank me later.
