Last week we went to dinner with our friends Bert & Jessica and the table were we sat down had Jenga so we played, I discovered I am quite good at the game and K discovered he's alright (he may have lost the two times we played, he could have not cared less though haha).

We love Bert & Jessica, they are such a wonderful couple, we are getting to know them still but we know we'll build a great friendship with them.

Last Thursday we launched "The City" at Urban Church. The City is our youth and young adults ministry and our first meeting was incredible. We had 87 people join us, we played minute to win it games, worshiped and had a great time. We will have one every month in the summer and from there we will see if we should do it more often.

Caleb and I loved being able to be there and help Jonathan and Kitzya, who are in charge of it. They did an amazing job and we cannot wait for the next "The City"

Last Wednesday we had our last Genesis1-11 Bible Study, we had been studying a chapter a week and we reached week 11. Tomorrow we are having dinner with everyone to just hang out but last wednesday we were done with the study and there was a range of emotions rushing through the house,so we took pictures. 

We are excited for the summer Community Groups to start, we won't host a Bible Study this time but instead we will have game nights, it's summer so we figured we had to do a summery thing, play! In September our Fall Community Groups launch and we will host a Couples Community Group again (winter we hosted one and it was amazing), it'll be different from the one we hosted before. 

We love having people over every week and praying with them, working together so our relationship with God grows stronger. I love Community Groups!

Mr. Caleb got invited to Daddy Donut Day by Ms. Kamilah and he was beyond thrilled for the honor to escort her to some awesome donuts and some fun time with her. He got a gift and she was disappointed when she found out he was not staying at school with her all day, but she understood. My husband is such a loving man, I feel so blessed.

I have been cooking a little bit more lately, trying new recipes for veggies and other different things. last week I came across a recipe for baked broccoli that was delicious and we paired it up with our Parmesan tomatoes, white rice and lemon salmon.  

Below the recipe for the broccoli, you will love it.

Baked Broccoli (Serves 4)
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano (optional)
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme (optional)
  • 1 pinch salt
  • 1 pinch fresh ground black pepper
  • 1 pound broccoli florets
Preheat oven to 350F

In a bowl, mix together the olive oil, brown sugar, lemon juice, cayenne pepper, garlic powder, oregano, thyme, salt, and black pepper until thoroughly combined. Add the broccoli florets, and toss until evenly coated with the seasoning. Spread the broccoli florets out onto an baking sheet with a rim.

Bake in the preheated oven until the broccoli is just browned on the top, 10 to 15 minutes.

My friend Tanya is marrying her best friend Kevin this summer and to celebrate her and make sure she had some fun things to wear we had a Lingerie Soiree. We laughed at all the tips she got and the lingerie we didn't understand. Such a fun time. Congrats Tanya, hope Kevin likes your gifts!!

Our Las Vegas family (the family i lived with while in Las Vegas whom we love and miss dearly) was in San Diego last week visiting and we had a chance to have dinner with them a few times, and then to go to the Zoo with them. We brought our friend Kamilah with us and gave Beth, her mom, the morning to herself (since she was moving and packing with a 6 year old is a bit difficult). 

It is so nice to spend time with my Vegas family, I miss them very very much and I love that they were able to visit, and as always Miss Kamilah was a ton of fun.
