Mike + 3 minute brownie recipe = Disaster (but cute!)

So the other night, I came home from a long day's work to find Mike in the office doing homework. Once he knew I was home, he jumped up and said, "I found this awesome recipe with tons of reviews... want to try it? It only takes 3 minutes!" Of course I said yes. So there he was, following this short recipe to make a deliciously yummy brownie. He was SO excited! He followed the recipe perfectly and mixed all the ingredients together in a microwave safe mug. After about 2 minutes of it cooking, it started smelling Super good! I was actually getting excited for this interesting treat. Once it was done, Mike opened the microwave door and found this....

Somewhat of a disaster! It smelled SO good regardless of its looks so we gave it a try... Let's just say it smelled much better than it tasted. It was really dry and pretty spongy. We both ate a bite and we had had enough. Mike went back and read of few of the reviews... as to be expected, they all said how terrible it was. After a good laugh, I realized what a great hubby I have. He is so thoughtful because he know's how much I LOVE chocolate. He was so cute and excited to make me this "tasty" treat. I'm so lucky to have Mike as my eternal companion and best friend. He can always make me laugh and constantly takes such good care of me. I love you babe!

- - Halloween - -

What a fun Halloween weekend!! We all had a total blast with each other. My sister Michelle and family were able to come down and go trick-or-treating with us. Here are a few fun highlights from our holiday week!!

* The Richard's, My parents, Alacia, and us went to a pumpkin patch where we went through a fun corn maze, went down some crazy big slides, and went on a wagon ride to pick out our pumpkins. It was lots of fun!

* On Halloween, all of us piled in the cars and went to the Wirick's, Grandma and Grandma Johnston's, and we visited Grandpa Olsen. Everyone was so excited to see the kids in their cute costumes. Kellie was a little concerned about Grandpa in a hospital bed so we asked him "What happened, Grandpa?" and before we knew it, Tommy answered her and said, " He's just really old, like almost 100!" It was super cute!

* All of the kids in their Awesome costumes. Alacia - Witch... Ryan - Vampire... Ashley - Cowgirl... Kellie - Maleficent... Tommy - Yoda... Katelyn - Sleeping Beauty... Whitney - Lady Bug... Kayden(Not Pictured) - Monkey
